If you're a Star Wars fan you saw this over the weekend. I was worried it'd have spoilers, but it turned out pretty good:

Star Wars Wednesday No More

Well, sort of.

I'm not going to try to keep up regular postings of Star Wars. At least not for a while. I need to focus on finishing Bid the Gods Arise illustrations as well as starting some other art projects. I'm sure I'll have an itching to create some new Star Wars art, but I'm not going to attempt to get it out every week. I will still be taking commissions.

I am going to link to Star Wars news and stuff  I find interesting each Wednesday so tune in for that. Also, feel free to let me know of any significant news or interesting finds.

From Spinoff Online: No new footage. I'm fine with this. And I hope that all future trailers are about as cryptic as the ones we've had so far.

Vader in the first anthology film? Makes sense to me. (via Spinoff Online)

The big news of the week. Man, I hope they get the casting right!

And a pretty cool Boba Fett film:


If you're into Star Wars merchandise, I've started selling some on ebay. Most of the items are more recent but I'll eventually put up my older Kenner toys. I'm going to try selling art there too, so make sure you put my ebay store in your favorites. http://www.ebay.com/usr/lynmiclyn

Star Wars Wednesay #46: THE EMPIRE


I almost had this up last week, then the power went out. I was among those who lost power for a couple of days here in South Jersey.

This is kind of a cmpanion to the last Star Wars Wednesday. I pulled the text from The Empire Strikes Back title.

News and Stuff

I'm not sure I'll have new art up today for Star Wars Wednesdays, I'm linking to some Star Wars related stuff for now.

Rumor: The second Star Wars anthology film will feature both Boba Fett and Han Solo. They better get the right actor for Han or this movie fails. 

I can't explain why this video is so funny, but it had me in tears! Thanks to The Star Wars Expanded Universe Chronology for directing us to this. 

And I've got my first old toy up for sale on my comics for sale blog. I apologize for not including pics. They'll be up soon.

Star Wars Wednesday #44: THE BOUNTY HUNTER ON ORD MANTELL

Skorr. India ink on cardstock.

I have a feeling the new Marvel comics are getting ready to overwrite this character, but I'm hoping they bring Skorr back as the bounty hunter on Ord Mantell that Han refers to in The Empire Strikes Back. It would be a great homage to the stories told by Archie Goodwin and Al Williamson in the Star Wars newspaper strips. 

While looking up a link to the story, I came across Nathan Butler's Star Wars Library #40 which deals with the story I'm referring to. At around 5:10 he explains the story I'm referencing. Then goes on to explain how other authors tried to tell the same story. I wasn't aware of these other stories, so I thought it was kind of fascinating. (By the way, Nathan is the author of the Star Wars Timeline Gold.)
