If you're a comic collector like myself, especially for newer comics and story arcs, you'd know how exciting Wednesday's are! Also, if you're a huge Star Wars fan like myself and getting ready for the release of The Force Awakens in December, you may have been excited for last Wednesday, for the release of Star Wars: Shattered Empire! The first issue of this 4 part story arc was released last Wednesday, as part of the Journey to Star Wars: The Force Awakens series of books and comics bridging the huge story gap between Episodes 6 and 7!
While I encourage everyone to check out the series and story arcs for yourselves, I will not spoil much about the first issue of this arc. The story takes place right after the finale of the Battle of Endor, as seen in Return of the Jedi. However, two of the characters revealed in the comic are Shara Bey and Kes Dameron, two Rebel pilots who seemed to be married during these events, according to the first comic and Wookiepedia.
Unless you've been living in Jedi exile, the surname DAMERON would sound familiar to you as well, as one of the revealed characters from The Force Awakens trailer is name Poe Dameron, the Resistance X-Wing pilot portrayed by Oscar Isaac.
No relation between the two characters who share the same surname has been revealed yet, but could we see something in future issues, among other plot elements? The next three parts of Shattered Empire are set to be released in October and you can also find Star Wars: Aftermath, Lost Stars, and other parts of the Journey to The Force Awakens multimedia series in stores!
