Review: Star Wars: Revelations #1

Star Wars: Revelations #1

In the recent foray for Star Wars, Andor , we see the rise of a revolution. We find out exactly what happens when people have enough. When a society is oppressed, they eventually will push back. This holds true for most environments, even not on a national stage. I have seen potboilers in combat situations, where people lose all composure, because of someone acting tyrannical.

Eventually, no one suffer fools or injustice. As people who do things because they feel they are in the right, is because of self preservation. The reality is, it is a perversion of the truth, it is a lie they tell themselves so that they can sleep at night. In Star Wars: Revelations #1 we find out when the people the Empire is supposed to serve, fights back.

We find Darth Vader as he seeks guidance from the Webbish Bog, as he senses an unseen threat headed his way. As Lady Q’Ra has found the Fermata Cage, something the Emperor needs and he dispatches Vader to secure it. We also catch Luke, as he senses a disturbance in the force,  as they arrive on Klugson’s Moon,  a planet not on any interstellar chart, where they encounter Ajax Omega,  a onetime revolutionary droid, who looked to supplant sentient beings, which leads to a skirmish between the two. By the issue’s end, Vader escapes an ambush and is even more determined to extinguish the enemies of the Empire.

Overall, Star Wars: Revelations #1 is a muddled mess of an issue. The story by Guggenheim is action packed but looks to do too much in one issue. It teases what’s to come at the detriment of entertainment. The art by the creative team is gorgeous. Altogether, Star Wars: Revelations #1 is an issue that doesn’t quite live up to its ambition and mission.

Rogue State #1 is Black Mask Studios’ Highest Selling Premier Issue

The first printings of Rogue State #1 sold out at both distributors Diamond and Lunar on its first day of release, breaking Black Mask‘s all-time record for bestselling comic. Black Mask is rushing Rogue State to second printing with two covers by Jasmin Darnell that will arrive in both standard and ‘gallery’ (no-text) editions.

While Jasmin Darnell’s cover art presents a powerful image of post-apocalyptic street artist Dust Girl, Ramon Villalobos‘ Tour Cover pays homage to the history of socially-engaged public art in San Francisco’s Mission District, where Rogue State is set.

Rogue State #1 reunites C. Granda and Matteo Pizzolo, who first collaborated on the acclaimed CalExit: San Diego

Rogue State combines Granda’s experiences coming of age amid political violence in Medellín-Colombia with Pizzolo’s street-politics, crafting the story of a near-future America overrun by political violence set in the embattled blue-enclave of ‘Occupied San Francisco.’

Political violence plunges America into turmoil. Local police forces join with the National Guard, but even their combined strength is unable to quell the rage. Filling the vacuum, militia groups rise into roving gangs of vigilantes.

In a strict interpretation of the 2nd Amendment, an embattled Supreme Court overturns two centuries of settled law by recognizing militias as Constitutionally protected. In an instant, every paramilitary gang in America is suddenly deputized, transforming the entire country into a vigilante police-state. Lockdowns set in. Fear spreads… and whispers of revolution.
