FANgirl’s SAGA Read-Along: Beginnings

Saga comic Volume 1 cover

It’s time to kick off FANgirl’s first Put More Of This In My Star Wars Read-Along, featuring the graphic novel Saga by Brian K. Vaughan and Fiona Staples. I explained the premise of this new adventure for our blog in a post earlier this month:

Each of the stories picked will have some connection to Star Wars and will promote our goals as readers and fans. We’re going to show you what we like to see in our stories, and we invite you to join us on the adventure.

Our winner of the Read Along giveaway copy was Amanda Bond. Thanks for participating!

Linda kicked off the conversation on Twitter after opening the book and being sucked in.

@fangirlcantina Got my copy of Saga today! I picked up to flip through– couldn't put it down. I loved it! #Saga

Kay also offered feedback that the story grabbed her. Mary’s reaction has been more mixed, although one character inspired her enough to contribute an amazing character dissection that will help spur the discussion next week.

To start, let’s talk about the opening chapter:

1) One of the great elements of the Star Wars movies is the use of in media res. The characters and situation are fleshed out but the audience has to dive in. That’s also true in the first chapter of Saga. What did you think?

2) The opening jumps into the birth of the narrator, Hazel. Would you . . . → Read More: FANgirl’s SAGA Read-Along: Beginnings

Who is Fulcrum? Speculating on Star Wars Rebels

On Hyperspace Theories part of what we do is take information we’ve gathered about Star Wars and explore the possibilities of what it could mean and where it might take the story. This form of speculation can be a lot of fun and apparently addicting, because while we’ve mainly been talking about The Force Awakens on the podcast, I’ve found myself doing the same thing for the TV show, Star Wars Rebels.

This led me to coming up with a theory for the Kyber crystals targeted by the rebels in “Breaking Ranks,” which was later confirmed by Pablo Hidalgo and crew in an episode of Rebels Recon. If you’re interested in hearing more about that theory, check out the episode of Disney Vault Talk’s Rebel Yell where I discuss it. Since that mystery is settled enough, at least in my mind, I’ve moved on to a bigger one: Who is Fulcrum?

In the fifth episode of the first season of Star Wars Rebels, we are introduced to a character called Fulcrum by way of a voice who has information for our heroes. “Out of Darkness” implies only Hera Syndulla might know Fulcrum’s true identity. Fulcrum gives Hera background on Imperial targets but also leaves supplies for the rebels at drop points. In “Gathering Forces” we learn Fulcrum is traveling, at least at the moment, in a CR90 corvette with a blue stripe when they come to pick up Tseebo, the Rodian with a head full of Imperial secrets.
