The Splinter

The incongruous images flashed across my melon like so many Splinters of the Minds Eye… Flannel and Fairies, Boba and Bambi, Droids and Dwarves, Broomsticks and Banthas, and the Death Star looming over a picturesque Disney castle. Confusing. Confusing wrapped in a disjointed, jacked-up What the Force Just Happened burrito del

The Real Expanded Universe

This is going to be a short article for a number of reasons. The first is that its premise requires little elaboration. The second is that it was originally a reaction to the sale of Lucasfilm to Disney, but a mere two weeks from that momentous development, I am thoroughly

End of the Line: Part I

They rattled as he ran: a collection of lightsabers that he had salvaged from the bodies of his fallen comrades in the all-but-extinct Jedi Order. The noise they made was mostly drowned out by the heavy rainfall on the rural plains of Dantooine. The tall, salmon-skinned Mon Calamari hastily made

A Great Overreaction in the Force

By now, I’m sure that most of you know of the merger between LFL and Disney. By now, I’m sure that many of you are getting equally tired of hearing the sheer panic from many Star Wars fans over this announcement. I’m also certain that some among you take umbrage at

I am not one to write often, and even more seldom at length. Certain recent events, though, make this a worthy occasion for doing such. George Lucas caused quite the ruckus both in “The Business” and on the Internet this past Tuesday, the 30th of October, 2012, when he made the

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

Farewell to the Lucas Experience

November 2, 2012 Grand Admiral Sean 0

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
