Review: From a Certain Point of View – The Empire Strikes Back Anthology

As a whole, FACPOV – ESB is a resounding success. The volume is lovingly edited, sticking to the chronological order and geographical space of Episode V as much as possible and using every crevice, device, animal and minor character to explore forgotten areas and ignored themes.

Review: Poe Dameron: Free Fall by Alex Segura

Poe Dameron: Free Fall feels rushed and unpolished but it contains some mythical elements and clever retconnings that explain the motivations of adult Poe.

Review: Dark Legends, by George Mann

Dark Legends, written by George Mann and illustrated by Grant Griffin, is a short collection of Star Wars stories based on well-trodden horror tales. The tales themselves fall flat and are not very scary, but they introduce variations on Star Wars concepts (the planetary effects of massive cracked kybers, the Jedi suppresion of the Dark Side...) and they are accompanied by fantastic illustrations.

Review: Star Wars: The High Republic – Light of the Jedi

Charles Soule is a good writer and has done a solid job introducing all the basics of the High Republic, and it is a good starting point for this new Star Wars transmedia project. Light of the Jedi also a masterclass of detailed worldbuilding. However, the heroes lack characterization and they seem, at times, brainwashed. Unless you have been craving the Kennedy’s Camelot and Superhero!Jedi, this novel might make you roll your eyes a little bit. That said, if you are in the market for full-metal villains and wholesome laser sword heroics, Light of the Jedi might be just your jam.
