And issue #2's cover:
Does she look like Palpatine to anyone else?
I keep seeing Professor McGonagall in her face, myself.
Oh that art. My eyes! So drab and undetailed. This is one comic I will not be buying.
Drab is the work that came into my head too - it seems like the coloring is the problem! The art isn't popping the way I like comics to.
I am actually liking the art, and liking that in this preview alone, it all is info we did not see in the movie. I am hype for this comic.
Re: Issue #1 preview
Interesting that Luke has to fight being cut off from the Force. I like that. Shame it wasn't mentioned in the movie.
As far as comic adaptations of the movies go - this is pretty standard. I don't mind the art, maybe because the style reminds me of some (non Star Wars) books from when I was a small kid, so I got some nostalgia for artwork like this. The highlight from this issue in my opinion is the moment between Chewie and Luke. It's just one panel, but it's better than nothing. Seeing that in the comic, I think it's a real shame that we didn't get it in the movie.
Are those Imperial-class SDs on the cover?
I really liked this issue. Whitta's adaptation changes some of the lines in interesting ways that make me interrogate the story further, and I think the art is pretty good overall.
Decent adaptation, one thing I noticed was Hux shaking his fist to fire on the Resistance panel is kind of similar to Hux shaking is fist to fire on the Resistance in the TFA comic adaptation, even though Hux hasn't done it in the movies yet anyway. But, yah, I kind of like the new stuff and it's fun to see where the cliffhangers land, in this case it was Leia's "And they did it" moment which seems as good a point as a cliffhanger as any.
Just finished part 1 of the adaption today. I really enjoyed the new opening but would not trade it for the movie one.
Also, I like seeing Luke's reaction to finding out about Han, but again since he's cut himself off from the Force and has been fighting it based on the adapted opening, it makes sense that he wouldn't use it then, especially in anger and frustration.
And thinking about how we first saw Luke in the movie and the hope that is generated by "The Jedi Steps", I think it wasn't the best choice to use that again in TLJ. A variation of it played in a different key may have been better to give the audience a little hint that your hope is misplaced, at least at that point in the film.
The Last Jedi #2 preview.
Damn, those last few panels.
Yeah, the art was horrifyingly bad.
Oh wait, that wasn't what you meant?
I don't understand how some artists, in this modern age with so many advances in digital art, can produce such crude images. I mean compare that to something by Marco Checchetto or Giuseppe Camuncoli and the difference is astounding.
I like the art style cuz the artist draws tech and spaceships really well, and I think his framing is dynamic. I don't mind a bit o abstractness in the art.
