Poe Dameron comic #20: Legend Found, Part I by Charles Soule

"Poe Dameron #20: Legend Found, Part I" written by Charles Soule, illustrated by Angel Unzueta and Arif Prianto
     This issue basically sets up the next story arc for the series, and from the way this part ended, and the way we know things go at the beginning of The Force Awakens, it looks like this series is far from over! Yay!!
     The story opens up on Cato Neimoidia, a planet in the Colonies Region and a Neimodian purse world, referenced by Obi-Wan at the beginning of Episode III. "That business on Cato Neimoidia, doesn't...doesn't count." Love it. This is also the planet with the awesome bridge cities hanging from rock arches. Apparently the planet's primary industry is security (holding other peoples' treasures in vaults on the planet) post-Trade Federation collapse. And one sneaky human is after something that's in one of those vaults.
     Then we have various mini-story arcs covered as outlined below:
     BB-8 has a girlfriend!!! Her name is IV and she's a turquoise astromech similar in style to R2-D2. So cute <3
     Snap and Kare end their relationship courtesy of Kare wanting to focus on the fight.
     Jess Pava still has issues with astromechs not wanting to fly with her as she's been deemed "The Great Destroyer." In a quite funny scene in this mini-story arc, BB-8 shows off his lighter in what we all assume is a thumbs up. But Jess wonders aloud, "Are we sure that means what we think it means?" I snorted.
     Leia muses over the Resistance's luck running out before they have a chance to make a difference. But then she gets just the thing she's been waiting for.
     Several times throughout this issue I found myself laughing out loud. It was definitely a hoot. And the visuals and character's faces were spot on. This series just continues to get better and better. I look forward to seeing where the series goes from here as Black Squadron heads off to break Lor San Tekka out of prison...
