The Disney Side Clouds Everything

November 12, 2012 JQG 0

Mixed emotions are what I had when I heard the breaking news about LFL selling up to Disney. I was on Facebook at the time and I saw Jay Petey post a link that it had happened. I quickly thought of the date…. Was it an epic April Fool’s joke?

ID, Please

Identity. It’s important in fandom. For centons I’ve been jealous of yonder Trekkies. Look at ‘em, with their unique moniker and their convenient “Live Long and Prosper” hands held up in victory salute over us Star Wars fans. I mean seriously, in the 35 years we’ve had this wonderful franchise

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.

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

Star Wars Message Boards: A History – Episode II

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

Greedo Shoots First

October 22, 2012 Grand Admiral Sean 0

If you have no life, you may be aware of the heated debate surrounding the fact that Greedo shot first. Note that I said fact. In the 1977 theatrical edition of Star Wars , Han Solo shoots the bounty hunter Greedo in cold blood. In the 1997 Special Edition and

Interview with Barbara Hambly

October 19, 2012 Grand Admiral Sean 0

There’s little to say by way of introduction except that (1.) Barbara Hambly writes the way I’ve always wanted to write, (2.) she personally maintains an endlessly amusing Facebook fan page, and (3.) she is surprisingly gracious about interview requests from strangers with dubious journalistic credentials. (You should subscribe to that
