Vader Meets a Holostar

Two short updates, and some exciting news that many Star Wars fans have been anticipating…

Check out guest blogger Lex’s review of Star Wars Art: Visions.

The concept behind Star Wars Art: Visions is fascinating: invite artists, established talents as well as rising stars, who wouldn’t normally create Star Wars artwork to give their own unique takes on the saga in their own personal techniques and styles. For Star Wars fans who are also students or fans of art of all types, Visions is definitely worth checking out.

After a lukewarm reception from fans to the previewed costume design for NBC’s upcoming reboot of Wonder Woman, it was a pleasant surprise to see the reports yesterday that David E. Kelley’s team considered a redesign.  Changes in the costume include more realistic (and forgiving) pants for running after the bad guys, a return of the stars, and most importantly the Red Boots are back! Gone are the heels, but if the storylines are compelling maybe no one will notice.

Finally, the exciting news! Vader may have a bit part in an upcoming EU book, but things are starting to look up for the ladies in the Expanded Universe.  Take a look at what we found today snooping around the internet.

    Don’t scare people like that. I almost had a coronary.
