Talking With Mike Mayhew A Long Time Ago In A Comikaze Expo Far, Far Away
By Cameron Hatheway The Star Wars was not only one of the best reads from Dark Horse of the past year, but also one of the best unofficial What If?'s of recent memory Mike Mayhew was the artist extraordinaire of the series, and excelled at walking the fine line of 'nostalgia' and 'fresh take' on one[...]
39 Thoughts About 39 Comics – Interesting Drug, Trees, Batman, Nightwing, Suicide Squad, Chew/Revival, Sex, Crossed, God Is Dead, Thief Of Thieves, Skullkickers, The Star Wars, Peanuts, Elephantmen, Sheltered, Futures End, C.O.W.L., Midas Flesh, Deadly Class, Tanpopo, Batman Eternal, Southern Bastards, Dr Spektor, Nightbreed, Doc Savage, Bravest Warriors, Twilight Zone, Star Wars, Ghostbusters, Samurai Jack, My Little Pony, Transformers, Harbinger, Shadowman, Gozilla, 24, City, Dejah Thoris, X-Files
Not in Chew/Revival. Well it worked for Indiana Jones didn't it? Oh, no, wait, it didn't… sorry Skullkickers, your days are numbered. Even in George Lucas' first draft for The Star Wars, with very different looking characters, this still seems wrong. The bad guys in Thief Of Thieves betray themselves with their stomachs. In God Is Dead, Avatar Press[...]
Thirty-Three Thoughts About Thirty-Two Comics – Painkiller Jane, Captain America, Batman/Superman, Batwing, Green Arrow, Mighty Avengers, The Movement, Superman Unchained, Red Sonja Legends, Detective Comics, Action Comics, Iron Man, Longshot, The Star Wars, Victories, East Of West, Amazing X-Men, Ten Grand, Spawn, Grindhouse, Occultist, Fatale, Uber, Absolution, Drumhellar, Alex + Ada, Baltimore: Infernal, Cobra Files, Dark Cybertron, Morning Glories And Classic Dredd
I do hope she approves… Stormtroopers in The Star Wars #3 seem pretty much of the same mind as the Stormtroopers in the final Star Wars scripts Nazis the lot of them And how do we deal with Nazis? Victories #6 has a more energetic solution. In Baltimore: Infernal #3 we get the need for all peg[...]
Bleeding Cool Bestseller List – Forever At Number One
We salute you, and the keenness you bring to your passion! Forever Evil was the favourite from almost all stores, but Green Lantern's Light's Out and the second issue of The Star Wars beat out the usually higher All New X-Men and Detective Comics. Forever Evil #2 Green Lantern #24 The Star Wars #2 All New X-Men #17 Detective Comics[...]
Thirty-Four Thoughts About Thirty-Four Comics – Uber, Grindhouse, Garfield, Spawn, Mara, Lazarus, Mind The Gap, Fantomex, Action Comics, All New X-Men Special, Mighty Avengers, Infinity Hunt, Movement, Earth 2, The Star Wars, CBLDF Liberty Annual, Hinterkind, Witching Hour, Hit, Robocop, Todd The Ugliest Kid On Earth, Crossed Badlands, Superior Foes Of Spider-Man, Mighty Avengers, Detective Comics, Iron Man, Hunger, Bushido, Spera, Quantum And Woody, Shadowman, Suicide Risk, Bedlam And Occultist
Just saying.     In The Star Wars #2, based on Lucas' original screenplay for the film before it was totally rewritten, it's interesting to  see that George Lucas still seems to be directing the action.   Kelly Sue DeConnick seems to be channeling her recent trips to the UK quite a bit in The Witching Hour[...]

Here we go folks, The Star Wars #1 from Dark Horse Comics, an adaptation of the original screenplay that would, one day, become Star Wars Everything is different, has been redesigned, but there's a familiarity throughout. And how does it begin? Rolling yellow text on a dark starry background… Here[...]
