    The Comicbook Dispatch

    Star Wars: Sana Starros #1 is not a perfect comic. No matter how well writer Justina Ireland paves the way when Sana gets into trouble, she opts for an over-used plot device to escape and turn the table on her attackers. Secondly, one character also comes off as two-dimensional. Lastly, sound effects such as BAP BAP and PEW PEW struck me as inadequate expressions of blaster fire. Yet these seem minor quibbles for a story filled with a rich cast of characters, exciting action, and jaw-dropping beauty. The way the story opens at the end suggests the infinite possibilities this series could deliver. Star Wars: Sana Starros #1 is a beautiful, heartwarming comic that celebrates diversity and the mythic storytelling of the beloved Star Wars franchise. Don’t miss it!

    The story for this plays pretty well and I like how Ireland has constructed the story so far. It leans into a familiar quick opening action bit to capture the attention but the bulk of it is spent exploring the family relations and dynamics later while not getting too deeply into them so that it feels more natural. The end result is something that moves continually and keeps us learning more and more of what will be driving this. Sana’s family certainly is more layered and interesting in half an issue than some other books manage over several and I’m keen to see what more truths we really discover along the way. Especially with Aryssha. Perez’s artwork is a strong selling point here in drawing you in as well with some great framing of a lot of scenes and panels and a strong flow so that you’re continually engaging and soaking up the details to it. Definitely looking forward to more.

    Much like how the TV series Star Wars: Andor explored seemingly average citizens trying to exist at a time when the Empire was coming into power, Sana Starros seems to similarly be exploring the gray areas of life under the fascistic rule of the Empire and the lower-stakes struggles that come along with it. Even if the book delivers some of the expected conflicts that we've seen in other Star Wars comics focusing on rogues and smugglers, these small tweaks about Imperial relationships bring a lot to the table that could set up Sana Starros to finally give one of the more compelling supporting characters from Star Wars comics a narrative worthy of her complexities and charm.

    The story doesn’t waste too much time getting into the action, so the pacing is great, and it’s very entertaining. It also seems to be set before Hidden Empire and the current Doctor Aphra arc, as Sana Starros appears to be reeling from a bad break up with Aphra. They first dated when they attended the University of Bar’leth together, so this might be set before A New Hope. This was a solid debut issue, and I look forward to reading more.

    How much you will get out of this one depends on if you have been following Doctor Aphra and know who this character is. Still a good rest from that plot though.
