Um, Angie, that may not be a compliment.  Just saying. Continue Reading Around the Web…

Tom Taylor revealed a little teaser about the cover of his upcoming Darth Maul comic…and that Dave Dorman is doing the cover. If you’re a fan of Dave’s work (like me) then this is some awesome news. Click here and check out the comments to see the details between Tom and Dave.

Randy Stradley has just sent me the first cover to my upcoming Darth Maul series. This is, without a doubt, the scariest cover I’ve ever had grace one of my stories. I’m worried people won’t pick it up for fear of being eaten. -Tom Taylor

My First Impression: ‘Assassin’s Creed III’ official photos/screenshots leaked

As of early March, multiple images and information has been leaked about the upcoming Assassin’s Creed III game from Ubisoft. Set to be the next installment in the Assassin’s Creed series after the first 4 games, from the images leaked of the yet-to-be-released game, it is clear that it is set during the American Revolutionary War. After games taking place during both the Crusades and Renaissance Italy, I think this move to America is a very interesting one. A game taking place during Colonial America is fresh and creative, and I can’t wait to see how Ubisoft will choose to insert the Assassin ‘Brotherhood’ into the Revolutionary War. My one concern, however, is since this game’s historical theme will hit so close to home, Ubisoft really needs to get their facts right. I really hope that I won’t be playing the game thinking that Sarah Palin wrote it. That means, Paul Revere better not be going off to warn the British that an assassin is coming to kill them all.

Jaina’s eyes brightened with alarm. Then a sudden calmness came to her face, and Luke knew her Force euphoria was passing. She had only minutes before her body collapsed, literally burned out by the constant flood of Force energy she had been drawing through it.

John Carter is out in theaters today. I plan on seeing this one tonight. Having read the book, I’m looking forward to seeing if Pixar can pull this off. Martians, sci-fi, and brutal warfare is certainly a decent recipe for success.
