Star Wars: The Force Awakens #1

Star Wars 1Welcome friends! Today for our comic review I decided to dive into Star Wars: The Force Awakens issue 1!  This was released on June 22, 2016 with story by Chuck Wendig and art by Luke Ross. I’m not really that familiar with either of these artists so I’m excited to see what is in store for me! Let’s get started!

First I did love the way this comic did the intro and outro pages, stayed very true to the heart of Star Wars. As for the comic it is pretty much exactly the same as the movie. I think that’s the point here but I did enjoy getting to see the story unfolding in this format. I did feel like the art captured the feel nicely, the dialogue was well written and the pacing was nice. Issue one tells us the story from when Finn first helps Poe escape up to when he and Rey are about the board the Millenium Falcon. So one issue did cover a nice big chunk of the story. I wish more attention would have been paid to the first part where Ren was killing off the village to immerse us into the story of Finn more but I understand that they probably had a goal that the first issue needed to get to. But yes, this is a nice read for any Star Wars fan!

Chris’ Picks of the Day 1/9/16

I’m going to try a new thing on the blog and see how it goes. Occasionally (possibly daily or a few times a week) I will go through Amazon and find the items I pick to be the best items of that day. This could be anything from games to movies to music to detergent. It will be based on my current mood, what I am doing and what I am in the mood for. I will probably just list some items and put a link to them below where I talk about them If you use that link you are supporting me, you are supporting the blog and you are supporting my hobby to buy more stuff to blog about. So let’s get started….

Today’s first item is the movie The Martian. This is a movie that I am REALLY wanting to watch. I’m going to purchase this one myself soon and probably do a review of it. I have heard only good things from everyone about this movie. If you’re into sci-fi check it out, but use this link!

or the blu-ray

 

My next pick is the Amazon Fire 7″ tablet. Why you may ask? Because I have bought THREE of these tablets and they are GREAT. They have the power to do pretty much anything I want to use a tablet for, music, reading, streaming movies and tv shows, playing games, twitter, facebook, the whole ordeal. And at this price you simply can’t go wrong. Amazing deal!

 

My third pick today is the pre-order for Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Why? Because it’s Star Wars! I haven’t seen it yet but I do plan to do this same pre-order for the digital download.

 

And my last pick of the day is the novel The Short Drop! I reviewed this book a few blogs back, so be sure to check that out! Get your copy here:

That’s it for today! Make sure to use the links in this blog to get your items! If there are items you’d like to see listed in one of my daily picks let me know and I will check them out! This item didn’t make it in today’s top picks per se but I say it and thought it was awesome, check it out and you all have a great day!
