    November 6, 2017 6:28 pm Ron I can take or leave, but those time codes are absolutely critical! I skip books that I'm reading in trade, and jumping around 15 seconds at a time always seems to land me right at the "He's Luke's father" moment. And just kidding about Ron- enjoy your upgraded life, and know that you will be terribly missed by the iFanbase- at least until we disagree with one of your special edition reviews.
    May 9, 2016 1:41 pm Back in the early nineties, I purchased a book of Lando stories titled "The Lando Calrissian Adventures". It was a weird read, mostly because it used typical Earth euphemisms (i.e. "can't teach an old dog new tricks") and lacked SW universe references (i.e. "scruffy looking nerf-herder"). Years later, I learned that it was originally written as a non-SW sci-fi book. The publisher had simply added an overlay of SW characters and ships to take advantage of the then-boom in SW printed material. So whenever I see a lazy usage of Earth terminology like "brandy", it takes me back to a place where the authors are largely ignorant of the finer points of the SWU, and may in fact not have SW in mind at all while writing the material.
    May 9, 2016 1:26 pm Only that matters is that it's an absolute jam, and has been playing in my head since I listened to the podcast yesterday.
    April 24, 2016 11:59 pm Wanted to bring your attention to a couple of new series that premiered from Dark Horse this month. -House of Penance dramatizes the construction of the Winchester Mystery House, and the descent into madness of its owner. Issue 1 of 6 was very promising, combining a Peter Tomasi story with beautiful, macabre artwork from Ian Betram and colors by Dave Stewart. -Dept. H presents an Agatha Christie style murder mystery in an undersea research lab. The story and setting so far have presented a compelling case to follow. The highlight is the artwork by Matt and Sharlene Kindt, which features watercolors and rough panels. These give the page a damp, moldering look that marries perfectly with the subject matter. It's a bit of a ongoing debate as to how relevant DH is as a publisher, so it's nice to see what they can do with their best foot forward. Not sure if you guys are sleeping on these titles or if they just didn't make the podcast- but you should give them a look!
