FCBD STAR WARS issue returns!

FREE COMIC BOOK DAY is coming back and after 2 years of NO special STAR WARS piece (after all these great issues) DARK HORSE is finally back with a new (maybe exclusively, but that´s not a given) comic. As you all hopefully know, FCBD ist a great way to make some noise about comics (in the US and more and more in Europe as well) - check out the FCBD website and be patient: The comic will be published May 2nd!

First STAR WARS Cover of 2009 ?

Just found this magazine on ebay UK -nice!!!! I´m not sure if this mag has been published at the end of 08 or really is the first of 2009 BUT with STAR WARS covers like this, it´s a pretty good start anyway ;-)

Happy New Year!

Ooops, here goes 2008 - welcome 2009! I´m not sure what to expect from 2009 STAR WARS magazine wise, but I´m sure we´ll see at least ´some´stuff ;-)
After all, even 2008 wasn´t too bad, though I´d really hoped for more coverage of THE CLONE WARS TV series (which is a pleasant surprise by the way) - let´s face it: WARNER BROS is doing a lousy job on the marketing front! Despite some good and friendly reviews the CLONE WARS isn´t really a hit series and is hardly expanding the viewer base. However considering the production budget which isn´t too high (the series is completely produced in Asia) the revenue out of comics, DVD sales and all other stuff will very likely give the series a longer run...good thing!
