What a year it has been. It seems like a mere 82 years ago I was looking forward to Star Wars Celebration 2020… Amidst all the hardship and days filled with distance learning, saying goodbye to my daughter as she went off to college, and cancelling all kinds of plans due to a global pandemic,… Continue reading Sal’s Favorite Star Wars 2020 Moments!
ANOTHER forty stories set during The Empire Strikes Back giving us new people and circumstances to enjoy! I mean, c’mon. You already know I’m here for this. My excitement and over eagerness are probably as apparent as Admiral Ozzel coming out of hyperspace too close to the sixth planet of the Hoth system. It’s a… Continue reading From a Certain Point of View: The Empire Strikes Back Review!

The Clone Wars series grew and so did the kids. There are so many stories and we have followed all the way through, from the Battle of Christophsis to the Siege of Mandalore…
Set immediately after the Battle of Yavin, Star Wars: Princess Leia follows our favorite princess’ adventures after losing her home planet. The story is well done and I LOVE the Dodsons’ art style! There are some great locations and lots of excuses for Leia to punch people! … And blaster people, and knee people, and… Continue reading Star Wars: Princess Leia Comic Series Moments!
