January 2011 Preview
Happy New Year!
The month of January is so full of exciting developments I’m almost at loss where to start. Here are a few things to look forward to:
The Clone Wars: Season 3.5 – The second half of Season 3 starts off with a bang. I’ve been lucky enough to have a head start on the first story arc after attending the Atlanta Screening. I’m sure the next three episodes – kicking off Friday, January 7th, at 8:30pm on Cartoon Network – won’t disappoint. If you want a sneak peek, be sure to check out the January 2011 Star Wars Insider and Clone Wars Magazine, where secrets are revealed.
Fanfiction – the missing demographic – Star Wars fanfiction resources, for any number of legal reasons, have long been avoided by the Powers That Be of the Expanded Universe. As a longtime fanfiction writer, it’s my opinion that understanding the wants and desires of this group may be the key to creating stories that appeal to a broader base of fans.
REVIEW: Legacy: War, Issue #1 – While some of the EU has been struggling, the Legacy comics actually appear to be gaining a significant female following. My review of the first issue of the Legacy: War will offer insights into why this is one story Star Wars fans don’t want to miss.
