04/11/22 A Force I Reckon


I received this Noto Force Awakens #1 9.8 in the mail today. Pretty good pick up IMO for $104.83 cuz 9.8 candidates aren't particularly cheap or very easy to find.

I'm a fan of any Force Awakens #1 book with Finn holding a lightsaber. I like the book in general due to the amount of first appearances but I've included a waky idea below I had that I posted on MeWe a while back which explains why I'm specifically picking up the Finn/lightsaber covers...

My waky idea: A lot of people have complained that John Boyega's Finn got a raw deal in the franchise and it's pretty hard to argue he didn't. His start in the film trilogy and some of the artwork alluded to him being or becoming a force user and instead he ended up being well....not much of anything by the end of the trilogy.

So you've probably seen recent rumors of some sort of Finn project in the works at Disney and John Boyega expressing interest in returning to the character right?

Are these rumors true and will this happen? I have no idea and probably not. BUT if it does happen, maybe they'll actually dive into him becoming a force user/Jedi right? So if by some miracle these does happen, owning the covers with Finn holding a lightsaber would probably be a good idea. Like I said before though, regardless of what happens there are a lot of first apps in this book which should appreciate over time. Absence makes the heart grow fonder right? People seem to love the prequels nowadays....
