New Poe Dameron Comic Is A Prequel To Star Wars: The Force Awakens

poeIn Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Poe Dameron sought out the mysterious traveler Lor San Tekka on the planet Jakku for a key to finding the missing Luke Skywalker.

But how did he get there? And what was he doing with BB-8? In April, Charles Soule and Phil Noto will tell you…

Star Wars: Poe Dameron has been announced by Marvel PR and USA Today.


But the evil First Order also has a goal of finding Luke, and a new villain from the organization is introduced as Poe's chief nemesis.

Comic fans actually got a lesson in Poe's backstory before The Force Awakens hit theaters. The Shattered Empire miniseries starred his Rebel Alliance parents, A-wing pilot Shara Bey and soldier Kes Dameron, in the aftermath of Return of the Jedi, plus hinted at Poe's childhood on the Rebel base on Yavin IV with a Force tree in his yard.
