Star Wars: Dark Droids #1 Review (2023) Tim Chuma

Summary: STOP! That is enough plotlines attempted to be sqaushed into the OG trilogy space. Go do something else.


*Groans internally*

The entity that was the Spark Eternal now has remade itself as a droid consciousness and is attempting to gain power that way. Due to the cleanup crew being present at the place where the Spark Eternal was detached from Doctor Aphra there is ample opportunity for it to get to a star cruiser and then terminate the entire thousands of crew. The actions of this entity do no go unnoticed as on a colony of free droids they are determined to not let it get out of control.

Supposedly this is the start of the new expansive crossover storyline. To be honest I do not have the stomach for such things as the two after War of the Bounty Hunters were damp squibs. The only one that worked out satisfactorily was Doctor Aphra’s storyline with the Spark Eternal.

I am not sure how much they are going to cram into the time period between Empire and Jedi as even the comics are doing Return of the Jedi storylines now. I may not have gotten into the High Republic stuff but at least it was something different.

I might not be checking all of this series but I will check in from time to time if any of the characters I actually like are in it.
