Poe Dameron #31 brings and end to the series and wraps it up on a bright note. We see an end to the battle on Ikkrukk and the fate of Black Squadron. While there’s no closure with Terex, we do find out who survives in Black Squadron.

As it turns out, the ending of the last issue was a bit of misdirection. Jess is definitely beat up, but Sura is not dead. Together, they’re able to help bring down the shields so the locals can shoot back at the First Order. Up in the air, Snap and Karre almost die, but Poe Dameron shows up in time to help them out. Together, they’re able to save the day. The story packs in a lot of action, some nice moments between Leia and Poe post-The Last Jedi, and there’s some nice closure to put a cap on the series. However, it does leave me wondering if Episode IX will take the extra step and integrate the comic canon into the film canon. It would be really nice to see some hint that Snap and Karre are married, or to see Suralinda on screen. Alas, I’m not very confident that the story group will pull through on that one.

The artwork in this issue is great. The action and the characters are depicted very well. It’s a great way to end the series on a visual high note. The only odd thing was when Suralinda stretched her limbs, though that was more of a weird story point that a visual issue as the artists did a good job of translating that visually. It’s just an odd thing for Charles Soule to include in the story.

With a nice ending to the series, Poe Dameron #31 earns a four out of five metal bikinis. It’s not necessarily a must read, but for anyone who enjoyed the series, it’s worth getting. Over the 31 issues, the series has had it’s ups and downs, it’s interesting points and it’s so-so points. But overall, it’s been pretty good. While I can’t say the series has really done anything to help the main character, Poe Dameron, it has introduced some new characters and helped make the rest of Black Squadron more interesting. Now we’ll just have to see if anyone else picks up the characters to continue the story.
