February 2015 Preview

DSC_0063February brings us more Star Wars Rebels, another month closer to Celebration Anaheim and The Force Awakens, and much to discuss at FANgirl.

Star Wars and the Power of Costume – At the very end of January, I had the chance to attend the grand opening of the new traveling exhibition at the EMP Museum in Seattle. Created in collaboration by the Smithsonian, the Lucas Museum for the Narrative Arts, and Lucasfilm, it showcases the original costumes from all six Star Wars films.

Saga Read-Along – This month we’ll continue with FANgirl’s read-along of the acclaimed comic series Saga by Brian K. Vaughn and Fiona Staples. The discussion has already been fabulous, and we have much more to talk about.

Valentine’s Day – Like years past, I have a surprise in store for this year, too.

Here are a few of the other things we’re looking forward to in February:

New Star Wars Comics

  • Star Wars #2 – February 4th
  • Darth Vader #1 – February 11th
  • Darth Vader #2 – February 25th

New Movies
