STAR WARS - PURGE
Gee Whiz - after checking out the artwork of DARK HORSE - PURGE I can only say one thing: OUTSTANDING! I ´m a reader of SW comics - well, since forever (!) - and I really enjoy all kind of styles. But this one - you have to see it for yourself! Imagine a STAR WARS comic where each and every panel is just like a painting! That´s exactly what PURGE is - a comic were all panels are a painting with a very dark and very cool Darth Vader story. The artist behind all this: CHRIS SCALF. Never heard of him ? Me too, but this will change!
Chris seems to be one of those best kept secrets, as he is around as an artist and designer for about 20 years! But it took these nice guys at DARK HORSE to draw him to the world of STAR WARS - and he delivers! Ok, now give this guy a contract and let him tell us new stories ASAP - I can´t wait for the next one!
Speaking of great comic artists: Dough Weatley and Jan Duursema used to be my favourites for years BUT there is a new contender! And a very welcome one!

I love exactly this kind of surprises! All of a sudden - when no STAR WARS event of any kind is around - EW publishes another wonderful cover story on our most favourite movie: TESB! A great rare picture and an awesome article about the new book from J.W. Rinzle: THE MAKING OF THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK. The first book about the making of SW was already outstanding. This one will have a foreword by RIDLEY SCOTT (who is in my eyes another movie genius) This book will rock for sure! As this issue of EW!
