Star Wars Adventures #31

Star Wars Adventures #31 gives us a Rey and Poe Dameron team-up as Rey lives out a long fantasy of spending time flying a working X-Wing and gets some piloting pointers from the Resistance's best pilot in this all-ages adventure.

The banter between the pair, something not seen much in the sequel films, is the best part of the story. As many of these stories do, "Squad Goals" brings in characters from other corners of the Star Wars galaxy. Issue #31 brings back the buzz droids from Revenge of the Sith who attack Rey and Poe while training as Rey proves an able student for Poe (even if her mentor only destroyed one Death Star).

The "Tales From Wild Space" back-up story, "The Lost Stories, Part 2" offers the further adventures of Emil Graf in the Lost Library of Nelgenam while searching for new (or, in this case, old) stories he hasn't heard before. Most of the story features the cartographer running from vicious library droids before running into an even scarier obstacle. For fans.
