ok so for a minute there we thought Maul might shift and help the poor sods on that planet – but no such luck.

though hey he does go back for his brother so he must have some empathy, though Maul himself just says ‘he has his uses’ (about his brother).

Overall this has been a fantastic series with lots of action and brilliant artwork.

Nice to see that the ‘demon in the light’ wasn’t Maul too and the Jedi, selflessly sacrifices himself.

Thankfully, Maul will live on and that means more action. This time he cut off some arms and unfroze his bros from carbonite.

wonder what he’ll do next time..


Lucas Originally Planned for 12 Star Wars Movies November 2, 2012

Really interesting blog up on Star the other day – the short version is that Lucas as early as 1976 planned on doing at least 12 Star Wars movies.

He even asked Mark Hamill (aka Luke Skywalker) about having a role in Episode 9.

You know, when I first did this, it was four trilogies,” Mark Hamill recalled in 2004, speaking of their conversation in 1976. “Twelve movies! Out on the desert, any time between setups… lots of free time. And George was talking about this whole thing… ‘Um, how’d you like to be in Episode IX?’ ‘When is that going to be?’ ‘2011.’ […] I said, ‘Well, what do you want me to do?’ He said, ‘You’ll just be like a cameo. You’ll be like Obi-Wan handing the lightsaber down to the next new hope.’”


Disney CEO Promises New Star Wars films ‘Every Two Years!! October 30, 2012

Disney is serious about Star Wars – sure they announced in the press release that we’d get Star Wars Episode 7 – but during a call with press and analysts, Disney’s CEO promised:

Star Wars Episodes 8, 9 AND 10!!!


“The last Star Wars movie release was 2005’s Revenge of the Sith and we believe there is substantial pent up demand,” Robert A. Iger, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of The Walt Disney Company said during the call. “In 2015 we are planning to release Star Wars episode 7 , that will be followed by episodes 8 and 9 and our long term plan is to release a new star wars feature film every two to three years.”



Star Wars Episode 7 VII Set for Release in 2015. Lucas Sells to Disney for $4 Billion October 30, 2012

George Lucas ‘ THE MAKER’ has sold out LucasFilm to Mickey Mouse for $4 Billion.
Not totally shocking that the sale was made to Disney given that Lucasfilm and Disney have had a relationship for nearly two decades.

The price – only $4 billion is a shocker. We have previously written that Star Wars was worth approx $30 billion over its lifespan so the $4billion figure sure seems cheap.

Aside from the ownership change though the bigger news is that


That’s right there is life after Anakin Skywalker’s death.

For the past 35 years, one of my greatest pleasures has been to see Star Wars passed from one generation to the next,” said George Lucas, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Lucasfilm. “It’s now time for me to pass Star Wars on to a new generation of filmmakers. I’ve always believed that Star Wars could live beyond me, and I thought it was important to set up the transition during my lifetime. I’m confident that with Lucasfilm under the leadership of Kathleen Kennedy, and having a new home within the Disney organization, Star Wars will certainly live on and flourish for many generations to come. Disney’s reach and experience give Lucasfilm the opportunity to blaze new trails in film, television, interactive media, theme parks, live entertainment, and consumer products.”

Star Wars Darth Maul Death Sentence #2 – Maul is a Good Guy?! September 26, 2012

ok so Maul is back – he’s out with his brother and he’s looking to get revenge…

simple plot?

Not Quite.

You see the dude that wanted Maul dead isn’t so nice, even though the Jedi support him.

So in one of the greatest twists we have seen in a Star Wars comic in some time….


Maul is now going to help the displaced inhabitants of a planet against their Jedi backed overseers.

Nice twist.

Well executed plot, stunning graphics and an overall vibe made this a comic that we impossible for us to put down before reading cover to cover…



Star Wars Dawn of the Jedi Force Storm – Is Xesh Really Evil? Great series… September 25, 2012

Posted by showmescifi in
Tags: , , , , , , , , , ,

Ok we’ve finally finished ready the first five issues of the next great Star Wars story – Dawn of the Jedi.

The first five issues make up the ‘Force Storm’ story arc and yeah it’s mostly about the ‘storm’ that happens on Typhon when the Force Hound Xesh lands.

Xesh is an interesting character and to be honest, he’s the only one that really resonated with us through the first five issues. There are just too many characters in this series to keep track off, and hey Xesh is central and he’s the bad guy (think Vader).

At the end of issue five, he’s taken to Bodan – some kind of place on Typhon where bad guys can mediate on the light sight of the force…

Since in this era of the Jeedai (no typo – – no Jedi yet!) there are no Sith yet either…well not unless you count the Jeedai journeyman that is a pureblood sith but not Sith in the dark side of the force sense…

Anyways good fun, interesting read as a series. NO this doesn’t compare to John Ostrander last mega masterpiece – Star Wars Legacy (not even close), but it’s still an enjoyable plot line and one that we’re looking forward to reading about for at least another 45(?) issues.


Star Wars Errant Knight Escape #4. Odion Takes the Helm. AWESOME issue September 24, 2012

Yeaah we know we’re a little behind on our comic review (but we’re catching up!!).

Knight Errant: Escape #4 is good solid fun.

Odion – the Sith we all love to hate is at his worst, making ppl kill each other, taunting Kerra and oh yeah – now wearing an ancient sith weapon of great power on his head too.

We also finally see more of Kerra’s parents – in a holorecording…

It’s clear that they no longer live…but there is another…

a brother?

a sister?

we’ll likely find out in the in the final issue coming up.

we’ll also see if Kerra finds her way out of the Odionate and what Damian will do to her…if he catches up to her that is..!

Star Wars Darth Vader and the Ghost Prison Series Finale : AWESOME September 23, 2012

The final issue of Ghost Prison was a really great read. We knew that Vader would return to Coruscant with the Emperor and sure we knew that Gentis would get his arse kicked. We just didn’t know how.
Amazing twist with the Vader teaming up with Moff Tarkin (and hey isn’t he a Vader rivaL too?)

Great story overall – was fun to see how Vader dealt with the Ghost Prisoner in the end…perhaps a bit brutal and merciless but hey ..that’s Vader!!


Star Wars Ghost Prison #5 – Vader unleashes the Ghosts to retake Coruscant September 20, 2012

Only one title that we’re really looking forward to this week.

Star Wars Ghost Prison #5 – This series is almost done…we’ve now got the ‘ghosts’ from Anakin’s past imprisonment on Vader’s side, the Emperor is on the mend..all that remains if for Vader and the Empire loyalist to retake Coruscant…

So far this has been an interesting series. We see Vader on the run, we get a bit of Anakin back story..and we see another side to the young days of the Empire…

an empire that sees the Emperor for what he is and aims to replace him…

Star Wars Detours Set to Debut in 2013. Star Wars goes ‘stand up’ (comedy) September 19, 2012

ok we all love Robot Chicken and sure love the Family Guy Star Wars parodies too..but how about a Lucasfilm Animation developed and produced parody…series?
Yeaah it really is happening…and it’s set to debut in 2013.

Star Wars Detours™ is an animated comedy that explores what daily life is like in a galaxy far, far away. There are no Empires striking back or attacking clones here. Instead, Star Wars Detours focuses on the universe’s regular folks and their everyday problems… which, to be fair, do frequently involve famous bounty hunters, crazed Ewoks, and even a Dark Lord of the Sith.

So far there is the main trailer – which is absolutely hilarious and there are now 6 additional clips too…

Ok – we knew this was coming (and yeah we have the Dark Horse comic waiting to be read too) and sure we’ve been a little behind on the Clone Wars animated series lately too…

but wow.

this new trailer for a special director’s cut of the Return of Darth Maul (Star Wars: The Clone Wars – Season Four) sends goosebumps down all Sith spawn loving spines. Maul was the only good thing in the prequels and now he’s back and oh yeah he faces Obi-Wan Kenobi too (the dude that chopped him in two).

Brilliant stuff and yet another reason why we’ll be spending the next few weeks catching up on the great show that is Star Wars The Clone Wars.

We’re back!

and to kick things off this week are a pair of what should be really great titles.

Star Wars Knight Errant: Escape issue #4 is out..

this series is now near the end..we know that Kara has been discovered, but will she find her family….we’ll see…

The other big title this week for us is another John Jackson Miller one..(dude is busy..)

Star Wars Lost Tribe of the Sith : Sprial #2 is out this week too.

Having set sail on a prisoner vessel to uncharted territories, a rebel and a stowaway princess find themselves in a losing battle with their crewmates against a society of strange self-proclaimed exiles. When they are taken in by the exiles, new opportunities for power within the civilization pique their interest. The rebel recklessly takes the first opening to go after a guarded weapon he believes could upend the entire tribe of Sith!

Sounds like good fun to us…

Chad Vader Season 4 Starts on June 12th June 4, 2012

We used to love Chad Vader.

The first season was pure awesome – as our Fav Sith’s (brother?) made his way through life as the night shift manager at Empire Food Market.

second season was also fun.

third season mostly sucked – and that was almost two years ago. since then – no chad vader.

Guess What? Chad is coming back. After a two year hiatus Blame Society Films is bringing him back starting on June 12th for a five episode run. We couldn’t be more excited.

And just for old times sake – here’s a link from our fav Chad Vader episode – Episode 6 from all the way back in 2007.

Star Wars: Blood Ties—Boba Fett is Dead #2 – oh wait no he’s not. June 4, 2012

After that first issue we *almost* thought that Boba rly did get toasted.
He is after a clone, and hey lots of his brothers are around.

Now in this issue we get the real story – what happened and how his nice Mando’a helmet had a blaster bolt through it.

No surprise that Boba is going to use his half-brother to help him out, but what was a great surprise was seeing Sintas Vel.

that’s right – Sintas Vel, the woman that Boba Fett (in the books) has a child with. We can’t recall seeing sintas so beautifully drawn – errr painted as she has been in this issue.

Now the real hunt is one as we’ll find out how Boba can track down his own killers. No we don’t really care why they wanted to kill Boba, he is after all a bounty hunter so no doubt he has a lot of marks on his head.

The relationship between Boba and Connor Freeman (his half-brother) is interesting though. As it should be right? That’s what — Blood Ties – is all about.

Star Wars: Darth Vader and the Ghost Prison. PURE GENIUS June 4, 2012

We all know Darth Vader to be a menace. But what we get in this new series is something a big …different.

This first issue is pure genius.

We get our young Imperial Officer just graduating as the core character, we see the Empire through his eyes .

And we see Vader through his eyes — and it’s an awesome sight. In the midst of Chaos it is Vader that restores order. In the midst of rebellion it is vader that stands up to put his lightsaber through those that would oppose him.

This is the Dark Lord of the Sith as he should be – as an instrument of the Empire.

Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic WAR #5. Zayne Goes Home June 4, 2012

The whole Knights of the Old Republic: War series was interesting for a few reasons.

It was neat to see Jedi aligned with the Mandalorians and it was great to see Zayne Carrick not being the ‘bad guy’.

We got to see a different side of Zayne in this series — Zayne the hero and it was a side that we sure enjoyed.

This final issue was easily the best in this mini-arc as the story came together. Jedi can’t be Mando’a after and

Zayne proved that you



Isn’t that what he was just trying to do in the very first issue of this series? go home see his family and his girlfriend?

We all know that Star Wars is huge – but did you know that Star Wars has generated at least $33 Billion in revenues over the last 35 years?!

Yeah we were a little shocked too.

Facebook is a $100 Billion IPO and Star Wars isn’t as big? that’s nuts. No wonder Facebook is tanking

While a new Blood Ties begins – Crimson Empire III ends with issue # 6 of 6 out this week. It has been a good ride but it’s time for Kir to go now.


OOOH but wait Dark Horse has one more awesome ending for us this week with Star Wars: Dark Times-Out of the Wilderness #5 – illustrated by the one and only Douglas Wheatley. Dark Times is an awesome series that has been plagued by publishing delays since the beginning – let’s hope that this final issue is everything we’ve been waiting for!
