Can you hate the creator ?

That is just one headline of many really interesting articles fom the GALAXIS magazine no.3 December 2012 with a fantastic Boba Fett cover.
This issue of Galaxis is... let me quote ´the magazine of science fiction and science. Complete episode guide to the original Battlestar Galactica, a visit to CERN, SpaceX takes off, classic short fiction, our epic Prometheus review, wuxia and Star Wars, SF authors Charles Yu and Lev Grossman, presidential SF politics, and much more´
It is certainly a good read and - did I mention it - it´s just 2.99 US$ cheap (Actually it dropped to FREE)!  You can read the digital copy right here via ISSUU - worth checking out. Of course - as a collector - I prefer the print copy which is also available! I can only recommend supporting the printed Galaxis mag with an order of a printed copy, as good Sci-Fi publications are fading fast in these digital times...but that´s just MHO.
Thank you John Zipperer for sharing your passion with us!

It will be a day long remembered...

You´ve heard or read it probably everywhere, but this is just too good to be not posted again...

George, thanks for all and congratulations for this DEAL OF A LIFETIME! I have a pretty good feeling about this. Disney will make sure, that STAR WARS will be HUGE again! I can´t wait until 2015 and enjoy EPISODE VII.
After all this years, we will finally enjoy the third trilogy of STAR WARS. And what a clever move George did by selling the complete Lucas empire to Disney !? It surely is in good hands and will live there forever - well, at least for my lifespan and the one of my family.

            May the force be with you - always!

STAR WARS meets economy

Talking about pop culture influence, a Darth Vader lookalike graces the cover of a new business magazine in Germany. Nothing about true STAR WARS coverage here, but the evil spirit of our favorite Sith Lord is truly suitable for a comparision to some bad broker / businessguys.

Good news indeed! The news is out for a little while now, but I just read the deatils that the classic, really, really nice UK Sci-Fi magazine STARBURST is about to return this January 2012! Ceased in 2008 it was one of the few loooooong time running mags to exit the publishing market. I still remembering reading those first copies covering STAR WARS (though I have even better memories of FANTASTIC FILMS - but that magazine won´t return for sure). Back than, the UK was really far away and getting a copy at our international newspaper stand was a tough challenge. If you have the proper age you know what I mean, if not - well, let´s just be happy with the return of a lost friend! WELCOME BACK STARBURST!!!

1st STAR WARS Cover of 2012

It only took 18 days and we have our first STAR WARS related cover! I´m surprised and impressed! After the weak media news and marketing efforts for Episode One I´m really not expecting much this year. But Total Film did it! Funny enough it is the German edition, which is a licenced and translated version. Nevertheless I ´m happy ;-)
