Re: Star Wars - General Discussion Thread

Rumors are that we'll see Temura Morrison playing Boba Fett and that we'll see a live-action Ahsoka Tano in Season 2 of the Mandalorian, and I think Katee Sackhoff has been confirmed to be playing Bo-Katan. It will be good to see some of these formerly animation-only characters make the transition t...

Re: Comics are Awesome III

Nice to finally get some new comics this week, though I haven't had time to read them all over my lunch hour. Two issues of Justice League, Hawkman and Green Lantern, where someone finally remembered that Cowgirl hasn't been seen since around the mid-30s of Geoff Johns' original run on the title. It...

Re: Retro Comics are Awesome

A few weeks ago I bought the three Green Lantern: Sector 2814 tpbs, which between the three volumes collects Green Lantern 172-200. I'm about halfway through volume 2, and after reading these I can understand why some GL fans characterize Hal Jordan as "whiny". He's certainly at his most entitled "m...

Re: Star Wars - General Discussion Thread

Now THAT felt like a series-ending storyline. Some of thsoe episodes were just about perfect. Well done to all involved with Clone Wars, they recaptured the old look and feel of the series very well. Thoughts: - it was very effective storytelling to show the events of "Revenge of the Sith" from Ahso...

Re: Star Wars - General Discussion Thread

The Mandalorian ended well. The show looks great, it fits nicely into the Star Wars universe and wisely sticks with small scale stories and stakes. The chaos of the post-Empire, early New Republic galaxy allows the writers to use familiar villains like Stormtroopers, etc., while not having them be a...
