  • On a side note, for anyone who has read the Doctor Aphra comics and is a fan of Winloss and Nokk, there’s been a question I’ve been waiting for someone to answer, so I finally put it to Si Spurrier to get to the bottom of it. You see, Winloss and Nokk are a couple, but Nokk is a Trandoshan, and it’s really hard to tell from the artwork whether Nokk is male or female. Plus, so far, the dialog hasn’t given it away. Well now I finally have an answer.

Movie & Television News

  • Lot of trailers out this week, but not too many promising ones. There’s Lucky Day which does not have a US release date yet, but could be worth a watch.

  • And if you like horror, there’s Haunt which will be out in September.
