Marvel's Poe Dameron Star Wars comic co-stars BB-8



One of the coolest characters to emerge from Star Wars: The Force Awakens is ace pilot Poe Dameron (Oscar Isaac). His bromance with Finn (John Boyega) has become a fan favourite and now Poe's adventures leading up to The Force Awakens can be read in Marvel comics from this April.

“Sometimes it can feel like the Star Wars universe is so well trodden and so many stories have already been told,” writer Charles Soule explains. “But the way the Episode VII galaxy is set up, there are opportunities for new archetypes almost, and the bad guy we’re working with is going to feel fresh and cool.”

Beloved ball droid BB-8 will co-star in the new comic alongside familiar faces from the original trilogy.
