The LF Publishing Panel at SDCC will be Friday, July 19th from 5:00pm - 6:00pm.

This is probably when we will find out more about Project Luminous Smile

I am hoping for more related to Galaxy's Edge as well (I don't think there will be anything more for Journey to Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker).

General Discussion: Canon Novels/Comics/Short Stories - Page 19 Empty Age of Resistance - Finn Issue

Post by DeeBee on Sun 07 Jul 2019, 2:17 am

Hiya Peeps! This week has flown by for me- the first Age of Resistance issue was released and I forgot!
Yep... the Age of Resistance Finn issue has been released...
How about I give you a little taste and a few comments? Here goes. The big highlight of the issue IMHO is the Kylo Ren glimpse!

spoilers - Age of Resistance Finn:
The comic starts with a Kylo Ren sighting - seems a bit token but heck, I'll take it!
Here is what we see of Kylo Ren..
Finn is playing around mopping the floor in a very non stormtrooper manner. lol. then....

General Discussion: Canon Novels/Comics/Short Stories - Page 19 Finn_210
General Discussion: Canon Novels/Comics/Short Stories - Page 19 Finn_310

the plot then unfolds. There's an 'infestation' on starkiller base- and the stormtroopers are tasked with getting rid of it.
Turns out they are a bunch of cute animals that look like a cross between a porg and a bat. lol a Borg? tee hee..
General Discussion: Canon Novels/Comics/Short Stories - Page 19 Finn_410
Finn feels sorry for them because they have lost their home due to the first order.
He gets in trouble..[I'll skip all the detail lol] he ends up being assigned to protect a garbage run to a garbage moon. He is accompanied by a garbage worker -  name Marialew. [not quite a scavenger but close lol]
General Discussion: Canon Novels/Comics/Short Stories - Page 19 Finn_510
- does she look familiar? Much??!!!

Finn hides the creatures on the garbage transport - and plans to release them on the garbage moon and give them a new home.
Marialew doesn't know, and she points a gun at him questioning him what's going on.. she ends up helping Finn and the creatures.
Finn is full of guilt for how he has been part of the first order who has done this to creatures.
General Discussion: Canon Novels/Comics/Short Stories - Page 19 Finn_610
General Discussion: Canon Novels/Comics/Short Stories - Page 19 Finn_710
I wonder if we'll see Marialew again..
There's no big surprises here IMHO - and I would say this one isn't worth purchasing.. but hey each to their own! the very brief Kylo sighting was like the moment on Jakku where he pauses and looks at Finn - it kinda makes me wonder if he had a vision or learned something from an Oracle about Finn.. they seem to be hinting at something special about Finn the force seems to be communicating.. but.. who knows.. maybe it's nothing!

I really love how there were more glimpses of the compassion within him, and his rebellious streak. Very Happy

The environmentalist part of me really adored the compassion was towards animals (fearsome looking animals, which he initially feared/was involved with attacking them/but once he knew the entire story, he did not judge - in fact, he moved heaven and earth to help them).

You know, I think that was foreshadowing for his view with Ben (who is in the Beast stage of the Beauty and the Beast story now). Wink Once he knows Ben's entire story, and witnesses the love Rey has for Ben, Finn will move heaven and earth to help him. Smile

If one adores Finn, and adores stories which involve compassion towards animals (especially scary looking animals), then I recommend purchasing. Very Happy Smile

General Discussion: Canon Novels/Comics/Short Stories - Page 19 Empty Age of Resistance - Captain Phasma Issue

Post by DeeBee on Thu 11 Jul 2019, 4:53 am

Hi Everyone! the Age of Resistance Captain Phasma issue has been released.
I'll share my honest thoughts but YMMV and would love to hear other's thoughts!

I found it a bit of a yawn. I've read the Phasma novel and this was nowhere near as interesting to me. Which is why I won't even bother to summarise the plot. lol. sorry! It told me nothing new about Phasma and was pretty uninteresting to me.
A few noteable exceptions:
We have a glimpse of the first order on Demir - a planet in the Unknown Regions.. I always find it interesting to see what the First order gets up to in the Unknown Regions!
General Discussion: Canon Novels/Comics/Short Stories - Page 19 Phasma10
I wonder if this is tied to the Resistance tv series episode where they found the FO were mining in the unknown regions. hmm.

2) we had some interesting artwork of Phasma with her helmet off drinking a fancy looking drink.
General Discussion: Canon Novels/Comics/Short Stories - Page 19 Phasma12
Is this a first? I think it might be....
General Discussion: Canon Novels/Comics/Short Stories - Page 19 Phasma11
I wonder why there was such emphasis on the drink - anyone recognise it? Port in a storm? lol.

3) Though it was clear the protagonist was going to be killed by Phasma from the start, I thought it was cool she shot first!! RIP KM8713 - you went out fighting.. It was just that darn special armour of Phasma's that was in the way. But then, we know Phasma never plays fair.

@DeeBee
Thanks for sharing . You know what is interesting is how they seem to focus on phasma’s eye ?? Her right eye . The one that you see peeking out of her helmet in TLJ. Wonder why that is ? Do we get to see her whole face ? Because we didn’t in the phasma comic pre TLJ either . And here it’s obscured again by the drink . Hmmm. Weird . The eye symbolism could be focusing on idea about the eyes being the window to the soul but deliberately concealing phasma’s face I don’t know . It makes me wonder if at some point they are going to reveal her face and it isn’t Gwendoline Christie’s one .Just kidding .
The drink port in a storm is based on a phrase :
https://www.phrases.org.uk/meanings/any-port-in-a-storm.html
Very interesting- a person will do anything or find any solution when in a bad situation or go with anyone for example if lonely they might go with the bad boy because he’s there even if he’s not the best choice ..... What’s interesting too is where it originated from too “ memoirs from a woman of pleasure “. It’s like taking what you want from life even if it’s not the best or right thing . Star Wars writers would have known this . What are they trying to tell us ??? Omg .

@AhsokaTano whoa that's cool. I mentioned port in a storm because it's been talked about lately related to Galaxy's Edge, but your connection here to the meaning of the phrase certainly seems to fit Phasma! great find!

Yeah I don't know what's the deal with obscuring her face/ focusing on the eye - at this point I don't find her very interesting anymore but lol maybe she will become interesting to me again!

@DeeBee

I did not notice the eye or the drink - lol, that did not stand out for me. Overall, I agree, it's an average, below average issue, yet I love what it could indicate for TROS.

Recently, as all know, the red sith troopers were introduced. In the teaser for TROS, we see Ben fighting alongside white Sith Troopers. Finn began the humanization of the troopers, along with plot points of the Resistance cartoon. This further emphasizes their humanity. Therefore, I believe this is one of the breadcrumbs that Finn, Ben, the white storm troopers, along with the Resistance (and perhaps more of the FO who wish to have redemption) will fight together against the evil side, which will include the red with troopers and the Knights of Ren.

Phasma says "You are just another nameless fallen gun." To Ben, they will have names, and of course so much more, then a fallen gun - he'll want them to thrive! Very Happy Smile

The fact their reveal was the same time (red sith trooper announcement) and this issue, is...interesting.. Very Happy Smile

General Discussion: Canon Novels/Comics/Short Stories - Page 19 Empty Chewie imagining Han and Leia's courtship on Endor!

Post by DeeBee Today at 4:08 am

@SW_Heroine_Journey - loved reading your thoughts! You make great points about the stormtroopers. I think at this point for me it just wasn't anything new, I had already pretty much been told this story already.. and I was hungry for something new. Had this comic been a year ago I probably would have been more psyched!

Have a little snipped from Star Wars Adventures issue 23 I'd like to share - this series has some seriously cute moments. I'm an adult, and I find the lighthearted fun of this series a breath of fresh air!
Sooooo here's a little surprise - Chewie's vision of Han and Leia's Endor courtship! lol!
