May Fourth—aka Star Wars Day—the day we’ve all been waiting for is finally here.
We all know it’s gonna be a puntastic day!
You can tell how beloved this franchise through many different ways—discussions, books, video games, merchandises— and it’s amazing to see people keeping it alive.
With the release of Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens at the end of the year, my excitement for this epic space opera is 110% through the roof. I want to talk about everything and celebrate its awesomeness. I want to devour every piece of media I can get my greedy hands on. That’s why I wanted to talk about the Star Wars graphic novels and books I plan to read.
When Princess Leia Organa was captured by the Empire as a Rebel spy, she never betrayed her convictions, even in the face of the complete destruction of her home world, Alderaan. When her rescue came, she grabbed a blaster and joined the fight, escaping back to the Rebel Alliance and helping strike the biggest blow against the Empire—the destruction of the Death Star. But in the aftermath of that victory, the question remains…what is a princess without a world?
Writer Mark Waid (Daredevil, S.H.I.E.L.D.) and artist Terry Dodson (Avengers & X-Men: Axis, Uncanny X-Men) bring us a story of Leia’s quest to help her people and find her place in the galaxy. — Source
That’s right. Princesss Leia has her very own comic series! Eeep.
Who wouldn’t want to see badass Leia in action? She’s not a damsel in distress. She can kick ass, and hopefully, this comic series shows Leia doing so.
