You might have heard that Dark Horse is publishing a limited series of Star Wars comics based on George Lucas’ first draft of Star Wars:
I bought it and it’s fine, but as far as non-movie Star Wars goes, I think my favorites are still the Genndy Tartakovsky Clone Wars cartoons. They’re beautifully drawn, the stories are great and nicely paced, the acting is better than the prequels, and there’s just a whiff of Samurai-Jack-ness about them.
So when I found this collection of Topps cards on Ebay, I had to pick them up and share them. Here’s just a taste (you can see the rest over at Flickr):
Oh these are classic! Classic I tells ya! DON’T MISS THESE! Click now and enjoy!!!
I suspect these cards were trying to make the old Bazooka Joe comics hip and/or edgy, but pretty much these just confuse me.
In any case, they’re a good way to waste a few minutes over at Flickr. Enjoy!
There’s a nice piece on the latest in the Topps tussle in the Chicago Tribune.
But what really stood out to me was the fantastic accompanying illustration! (Click the image for a nice large look.)
Kudos to Rust and Gelb at the Trib for capturing the vibe just right!
