Tom Taylor knows his audience, no one can dispute that, which is why his work on Age of Resistance — General Hux struck a chord with fans of Kylo Ren and Brendol’s prodigal son, Armitage. Then, in Age of Resistance — Poe Dameron, he crafted a great story that tied into The Last Jedi in a near-seamless manner.
As for Galaxy’s Edge, the mini series that was ostensibly a tie-in to the Disney park, Ethan J. Sacks and Will Sliney took what could have been nothing more than an infomercial into a truly great stand-alone five-issue story that is likely to resonate down the Star Wars Saga timeline.
Meanwhile, Charles Soule, along with Terry and Rachel Dodson, showed that a riveting story need not be lengthy, with their one-page Darth Vader appearance in Marvel #1000 capturing Darth Vader in all the right ways. Plus, it left us wanting to know more about Micha, aka Red Four!
