    1. Ugh, there are Ewoks in this thing - AND Naboo! Wait, come back, they’re only brief appearances (at least they didn’t show us any Gungans)! Set directly in the final scenes of Return of the Jedi, Shattered Empire follows Rebel pilot Shara Bey as the Rebellion continues to fight the suddenly leaderless Empire. Who is Shara Bey? Her hubby is Kes Dameron. That’s right, these are the parents of Poe Dameron, Oscar Isaac’s character in The Force Awakens. Pretty tenuous link for a “Journey to [...]


    2. I'm a great fan of Checchetto's art and this volume of Star Wars new comics started good, sadly it turned out being the "how I've met your mother" SW tale of Shalla Bal Shara Bey and Kes Dameron, how Poe's mom was a badass and her interactions with the main iconic characters cast.Not bad at all, but Poe Dameron is not much one of my most favourite characters ever and his parents too.


    3. Very strong addition to the SW canon tacked onto the back of the conclusion of Ep VI. Starts with the events moments before the ewoks started blowing off fireworks and playing their victory music in the trees of Endor. That's how real this book is.I've got to hand it to Mr. Rucka, the storyline is tight and the pencil work of Marco Checchetto is fantastic. The combination of compelling story (especially one set in a world I adore so dearly) and art that screams to be admired reminds me of the re [...]


    4. It was ok, I guess, but it felt sort of fragmentary and inconsequential. I guess I was expecting more out of it than it was able to deliver. But hey, there are X-Wings, and I love X-Wings.


    5. This volume was supposed to bridge the gap between Return of the Jedi and The Force Awakens. It picks up right at the battle of Endor and shows what happens immediately after.I was little disappointed. To me this story didn't really add anything. We did get to see some of the characters, but really it just came across as a typical Star Wars comic tale rather than something that is supposed to be movie canon. It's basically the story of Poe's parents, so I guess it sort of is important to canon, [...]


    6. 3.5 stars, really. I liked the art a lot, and the writing was pretty good as well. Poe's mother Shara Bey is the main character of this one, although his father Kes Dameron makes appearances, too. It takes place in the month after the destruction of the second Death Star, as Shara goes on missions with all of the Big Three, and as the characters in this comic all keep saying, the Empire doesn't seem to have realized they lost. The first issue and Bey's mission with Han was just meh, but I really [...]


    7. 5 starsGood comic. Nice to see Poe's parents, Shara Bey and Kes Dameron. Also nice to see what happened after Return of the Jedi. Nice to see everyone in action. Can't wait to read more Star Wars material!!!!


    8. Realistically includes conflict after the battle of endor, which finally makes sense (an empire takes a while to fall apart), Bey and Mr. Dameron are adorable, and LEIA, BEY, AND THE QUEEN OF NABOO TAKE ON AN IMPERIAL STAR DESTROYER.




    9. Shattered Empire is a comic collection that showcases the continuing fight between the Rebel Alliance and the evil Galactic Empire following the Battle of Endor. We get to see what the original version of the Star Wars Expanded Universe referred to as the "Big Three" (Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, and Princess Leia) as well as cameos from other classic characters from the original trilogy such as C3PO, R2D2, and Lando Calrissian. The comic focuses on the parents of Poe Dameron, the awesome new pilot [...]


    10. If you go by what many fictional stories tell us, when the bad guy is defeated, you mourn your dead and then you throw a party. That's not how reality works. Just ask the soldiers and civilians in Afghanistan and Iraq and so many other places where the war never ends, even when it's over.Of course, we don't want our entertainment reflecting that reality. We don't want to sit through Frodo moping around in the burning Shire, or Ender raging against that genocide he was tricked into causing. So wh [...]


    11. Not that great art. Ok story. This follows what I think are the parents of Poe Dameron in TFA and how they were at Endor fighting. It gives a nice but short view on those final moments and the weeks after that, but not too much info. I'm starting to see these nice winks at other characters from novels being mentioned (Alecia Beck) for we see that this new canon is expanding and getting denser and denser. We get to see Luke and Han and Leia but they're not central to the story which can be a good [...]


    12. Aww yiss, Poe Dameron's parents are badass! Princess Leia is badass! The Queen of Naboo is badass! I feel like all the new SW books I've read have done a lot of work to point out how important Leia's skillset is and how many sacrifices she's had to make, and this book was no exception.Also, the art is gorgeous and so is Shara Bey's hairis vol also includes #1 of Star Wars: Princess Leia and a reprint of a 70s Star Wars comic, the latter of which is notable mainly for how Luke looks weirdly like [...]


    13. This is the most fun part of the Journey Into the Force Awakens I've read so far. Love the first issue, especially seeing the Battle of Endor from the POV of some new characters. I really need to get a new X-Wing comic series ASAP!The later issues are fun, although Marvel really seems to like bringing Leia back to Naboo


    14. This was a pretty solid little story set immediately after Return of the Jedi. It had nice art and the characters from the movies felt right. I'm probably not the target audience, though, as I don't really care about Poe Dameron's parents, even if he was my favourite character from The Force Awakens.Apologies for the short review; I'm still feeling very ill.


    15. I didn't not enjoy it.It's just lacking in, how do we say content.A handful of stories that could easily be one-shots does not a good Star Wars collection make.


    16. Ties together the 3 film trilogies fairly neatly, focussing on Poe Dameron's parents with ample guest appearances from Original Trilogy main characters.If you were hoping for Big Reveals related to plot points from The Force Awakens, however, keep looking because apart from the Dameron family story and how it touches on the events shown in ROTJ and its immediate aftermath, cards are kept pretty close to the vest here.Nice art, though a bit crowded on some pages- for me, the epic battle sequences [...]


    17. This was the kind of quality content I'm here for. POE'S PARENTS. LEIA ON NABOO. FLYING A NABOO STARFIGHTER.


    18. 3.5 stars if I could.Basically, it's the origin story of Poe Dameron. Sorta.So if you want some history on where or how he came from before the new movie hits - this is the ticket.


    19. To find all my reviews: dancinginth3darkDisclaimer: I read the individual comics.I will confess that this miniseries should have been longer because it was phenomenal between storytelling, the artwork, filling in the missing blank, and providing more questions that hopefully The Force Awakens will answer or for any upcoming post-Return of the Jedi works. Four issues were not enough for me in terms of world building and action but I loved everything about this comic and Disney is smart with how t [...]


    20. SO FUN!! I saw the movie two days in a row in theaters, and I probably would have gone more times had it not gotten expensive. This is a really fun comic about into the intervening events between the old and new movies. This is also my first dip into any Star Wars extended universe (canon or not) aside from a trivia round I studied for a few years ago. The plot is exciting, and it gives you enough of the characters you love but doesn't hit you over the head too much. I thought Luke's tree quest [...]


    21. Prior to the onslaught of The Force Awakens and the "new canon" created by Disney, I based my views on the after events of the Battle of Endor on The Truce at Bakura.Shattered Empire rewrites this tale, and arguably in a more realistic manner. We see that the Rebellion has much work today, and we are introduced to some new characters, including Poe Dameron's parents (I see where the hotness comes from). There is no rest for our weary fighters, and Rucka gives you just enough of Leia, Han, and Lu [...]


    22. Beautiful artwork and some interesting stories set directly in the post-Death-Star-2-Destruction (so, right after Return of the Jedi). Disney is expanding this universe with new characters and stories and locations as fast as people can create them.My two biggest issues: 1. It's VERY hard to tell which order the art goes in, sometimes, and also hard to tell what's going on in places. 2. The author LIKES to put the emphasis in weird PLACES in the TEXT and it drives ME crazy.This also contains the [...]


    23. This one was a lot of fun. Taking place in the closing moments of the Battle of Endor, it's more of an origin story of Poe Dameron than anything else. We get moments with Han, Luke, Leia and even that big ol' walking carpet Chewbacca but the spotlight is firmly on Shara Bey, Poe's mother. She's a hotshot pilot prone to taking risks (sound like anyone we know?)It's a lot of fun seeing familiar places and faces especially faces that are shall we say it? Younger?As a bonus, this collection includes [...]


    24. I wanted to read Shattered Empire to help set the stage for The Force Awakens. It proved useful in this regard, especially in the way it introduced the background of character Poe Dameron. I appreciated the insights this gives into the "mopping up" efforts after the Battle of Endor, the legacy of the Jedi, and Luke Skywalker's post-Vader quest, in particular. I'm not overly experienced in reading graphic novels, but I found the artwork to be beautiful, especially one particular sequence with Lei [...]


    25. I like the section with the backstory of Poe's parents and their adventures with Han and Leia post-RotJ. The Princess Leia-between-SW-and-ESB part was good too. Leia visits Naboo in both sections. Does she even know that's her mom's home planet? Sigh. I hope they put out another volume of this stuff, because both sections really leave you hanging, I think.I found the section with the adaptation of SW just totally unnecessary and boring. I didn't read it. I've seen the movie a million times. No d [...]


    26. I have such conflicted feelings about this. The main reason why I read comics (most of the time) is the art. This art does not do a thing for me. It feels overly shiny and I can't even deal with how they try to recreate Princess Leia's face. However, this provides an interesting look at what happened during/after the Battle of Endor and gives cool background info about a certain Force Awakens character. It was totally worth checking out from the library, but I'm glad I didn't buy it.


    27. This is a fantastic addition to the Star Wars Universe continuity. The art, story, and depth of the situation revolving around the fall of the Empire makes you feel as if you are a part of the resistance. The addition of new characters helps lead these stories into the bigger expansive aspect of the Star Wars Verse, and prepares many fans for not only the upcoming Force Awakens, but also re-visiting ROTJ. Great great work.


    28. In my quest to find information now about what happened between Return of the Jedi and The Force Awakens, I read this comic series. It provided some insight but dealt only with the inmediate aftermath and three months after the battle of Endor, so not as many answers as I would have liked!Still, very much worth the read!
