In light of recent events, I feel compelled to express my thoughts on something that I personally feel is a complete shock to me. I’m one of the few people who is having a difficult time accepting this whole thing, and probably won’t come to terms with it for a

Interview

Mike Baron wrote the very first comic I ever read: Star Wars: The Last Command. More significantly, he was also a member of what I consider the generation of writers that made comic books better—and much weirder. I would name Baron’s Nexus and Badger alongside Wagner’s Grendel and Chadwick’s Concrete as some of the most significant original series of

Although the world of the Star Wars geek is very much lived out through the medium of a computer terminal, there have been some characters that have ‘made a mark’, so to speak on the community. At this point I would like to reflect on some of those characters. If ever there
