By: Cynthia A. Grimm Fairy Tales: OZ #6 Part 6 (of 6): Death in the Emerald City I did not see that coming.  The Tin Man was the bad guy while the Scarecrow was the good guy!  Of course, the writers made it a bit too obvious to suspect him so that made it obvious that he wasn’t the bad guy, but really, the Tin Man! Now, as good as this adaptation was, it left many questions unanswered.  What made Dorothy so []

By: Cynthia A.

Star Wars #10 — I love Star Wars and I love reading this series.  This is the way the Star Wars saga should be continued if they are not going to do the movies right.  Don’t get me wrong, I trust and love J. J. Abrams but let’s face it, right now the only reason Star Wars has been able to stay afloat is because of the books, the comics and the loyal fans who continue to have a new hope.  Because []

Star Wars #9 The Rebellion Darth Vader knows where his son is! Let’s recap, Boba Fett is hunting down Han Solo, well the hunting is done, the dude has him in his sights, ready to shoot and capture.

Espionage time! It was a slow issue that focused more on someone who Lord Vader has faith in. It’s difficult though to see who the traitor in the Rebellion is. But we know that the woman who Lord Vader has faith []

Week 24 2013 | Pt. 3

Star Wars #6 This story takes place after Episode IV: A New Hope and before Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back. Han Solo is missing in action with Boba Fett hunting him down (no surprise there) on Coruscant, and Imperial Planet. But more on that later.
