Star Wars Adventures #9 Review

Issue #9 features two different stories, “Troubled Stories” and “Dispatches From Wild Space”, all in a more casual fun style, similar to what you might find on a Saturday morning cartoon or weekend comic book.

“Troubled Stories” features a nice adventure featuring R2-D2 and C3PO, who are trying to track down a rogue droid who is working undercover for the Empire.  I really enjoyed this story and the art style of the two droids is lots of fun.

“Dispatches From Wild Space” sees a tale involving the Bounty Hunter IG-88, who was tracking down some small aliens and stopping them from escaping.  This was another fun little story that makes IG-88 look menacing but without being too threatening, since the gang it was trying to capture, felt more like a bunch of kids, so it gives it much more of a connection to younger readers.

The artwork for the comic book is very simplistic but it works perfectly as a its bright and colorful, without too much detail.  It’s very different to the artwork on the Marvel Star Wars titles but its perfect for the target audience.

OVERALL:

Another solid issue from IDW and a refreshing take on Star Wars, giving younger fans a more fun feel.  It’s got two nice stories and I enjoyed reading it, but it won’t blow any older fans away.

REVIEW SCORE:  7 out of 10
