    The Comicbook Dispatch

    Star Wars: Thrawn Alliances #4 delivers the fourth part of the story as we get more action and intrigue in both the past and present. This time around there’s far more action in the present storyline than in the past as Darth Vader and the Stormtroopers go up against the Grysks here. It helps that the comic does a solid job balancing the shifting perspectives from Darth Vader and Thrawn to the Stormtroopers themselves. All of which is elevated by the art team doing a solid job with the characters and action.

    There are a lot of fun things in this issue and this series as a whole but it’s also just the opening chapter of a larger storyline. So much of it just feels anti-climactic when you get to the end of it and putting a question mark at that point as well just makes it a bit crueler. I continue to like getting comic adaptations of novels and wish there were more of them but they need to be clearer about the approach and actually follow through on it without the wink and nod. The book delivers well in general as Hauser has done great in adapting Zahn’s books and the artwork from the team comes together really well. I love their take on Thrawn and that’s a big draw in how this whole thing works. It’s good and I know where it’s going but I can imagine it being a bit more frustrating for a casual reader.

    The comic book adaptation of Timothy Zahn‘s 2018 novel Thrawn: Alliances comes to a head, without fully feeling like a climactic finale. Timothy Zahn and Jody Houser‘s script contains some fun character interactions and a few intriguing pieces of lore, while still teasing that there’s always more in store for the never-ending Star Wars saga. Pat Olliffe and Andrea di Vito‘s art is the right blend of photorealistic and exaggerated, especially for the era in which the story is set. It might not be earthshattering, but this final issue seems to stick the landing for Star Wars‘ latest adaptation.

    SWNN - Star Wars News Net

    This situation with Thrawn: Alliances has to be a wake-up call. I understand taking a punt on something and seeing the response, but this is yet another Star Wars adaptation that Marvel has bungled. Badly. What makes it sad is the fact that things started with such promise. This is not a good look in an age where trust is waning, especially after the creatively bankrupt adaptations of The Mandalorian and Obi-Wan Kenobi. If more is on the horizon, I’ll happily read it. That still doesn’t change the fact that this fake-out finale strategy is a disgrace. All that’s needed is another issue or two, so why are we playing games that don’t need to be played? Why are we self-inflicting avoidable wounds?
