Ugh. WHY!? For an ironic trip to Tosche Station to pick up some power converters, with a pit stop for a little blue milk along the way? Maybe they'll have to rescue Boba Fett from the sarlacc pit since he's the only man who get can them out of whatever galactic jam they find themselves in? Is Luke going to teach his kids to shoot womp rats in the old T16 in a way that will evoke maximum nostalgia?

Or maybe they just need to pick up the still-smoking skeletons of Aunt Beru and Uncle Jim Nabors (I can't remember his real name). Actually if Han insisted they mount them on the Millenium Falcon it'd be pretty rad.
I'm sorta like that with comics too sometimes, burning through dialog and not really getting the complete picture, but I just gotta recommend this set because so far these books are REALLY good. You can drop the minimum and still get a few fantastic books. Or not! It's just such an insane deal money wise it blows me away.

There was already a picture from turkey or wherever they shot the tatotieen stuff with JJ there, so enjoy!

That's an intriguing bundle for sure... although I have so little time and so much other stuff to read, I'm a little hesitant to pull the trigger. I'm an idiot at reading comic books anyway. I read all the words while barely looking at the pictures and then wonder why I had so much trouble following the story. * idiot *

I'm tentatively hopeful about S7ar Wars. I mean, I want to believe again, but Abrams seems like a dude who excels at pastiche and individual moments more than being an actual storyteller. I hope it's great, I don't think it will be as bad as the prequels, but in my gut I think it's going to end up like the Marvel movies and be fun to watch while browsing the Internet on your phone, but forgettable. I want to be wrong!

I hope they skip fucking Tatooine for once. That was not a place we needed to visit in 5/6 of the Star Wars films.

| Humble

The new Humble Bundle for Image comics is KILLER. The only book I'm familiar with other than Walking Dead is LAZARUS and it's a fantastic comic. I recently bought issue one on comixology and was about to buy the rest but lo and behold here's the first collection for $1+ (I went $10 to unlock the higher tier titles other than Walking Dead - read a bunch already so don't need those volumes). Holy shit, get it for Lazarus if nothing else. (It's a dystopian near future post economic collapse- rad book!)

| Star wars

I'm actually excited for the new Star Wars.

I dig the new Star Tracks and fuck ya Larry Kasdan.
