In “Poe Dameron: Free Fall,” Alex Segura delivers not only the origin story for the galaxy’s most daring and charismatic pilot since Han Solo, but also more back story than we dared hope to discover about the mysterious and enigmatic Zorii Bliss. Taking a new spin on the familiar Star Wars trope of a young man on a backwater planet searching for something more, Segura carves a clear arc from the son of Rebel Alliance war heroes to “the best pilot in the Resistance” – and he doesn’t leave out the whole “spice running” bit we hear about in “The Rise of Skywalker.” It’s a fast-paced and fun adventure that sets up not only the Poe Dameron we see on screen, but the ace we find in Charles Soule’s comic series – along with a couple does of Babu Frick for good measure.
