Review: Issue # 1 of The Star Wars, by Dark Horse Comics

I hold in my hot little hands (okay, my cotton gloved little hands) a shiny new comic book--the first issue of Dark Horse Comics' adaptation of George Lucas' orginal script treatment "The Star Wars." This would be re-written to become the movie that launched a thousand ships. It takes place longer ago, in a galaxy even further away...

In popular media, the people who own and frequent comic book shops are often depicted as fat, nerdy and uncoordinated. This is, of course, a generalization. It may well be a correct generalization, but it is a generalization, nonetheless. As rebuttal to this picture, I would like to call the reader’s attention to a story that recently came to us from “across the pond”. No, not Lake Meredith, the big pond, the Atlantic. Or, possibly, the Pacific. No, no, I’m pretty sure it’s the Atlantic.

OPINION:Batman dies; Obama shakes Spider-Man's hand...

Last week in the comics, Batman was murdered by evil itself and Spider-Man got to meet Barack Obama. So, three guesses as to what gets all the attention: Batman’s smoking corpse (yeah, they have a body. Yes, it’s really Bruce Wayne. Yes, he is quite dead by comic book standards) or Peter Parker’s brush with His Majesty, the most beneficent King Barack the First?

If you have to ask, you haven’t been hanging out here long enough.
