Those of you not already sick of it can pick up The Clone Wars #2 at your comic shop on Wednesday. But never fear, my fellow Clone apathists – next week finally brings us Millennium Falcon!
Oh, and Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull comes out on DVD. Duh.
StarWars.com posts all of the Star Wars events at San Diego Comic Con: Mostly on Friday, mostly The Clone Wars, with some Indiana Jones thrown in for good measure.
The script for Frank Darabont’s Indiana Jones and the City of the Gods – the one Spielberg and Ford liked, but Lucas rejected – has reportably been leaked online – but good luck finding a copy now.
I kind of missed the pie charts, until I made two of them in a single night. Anyway, here are the results of our two-week polls concerning the two biggest events of May: the final Legacy of the Force novel (fig. 1) and the long-awaited fourth Indiana Jones movie (fig. 2.)

Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull has now been out for almost a week. To celebrate this event, I ate some crispy minty Indiana Jones M&Ms and drank some Indiana Jones Dr. Pepper yesterday. Now that the caffeine headache has gone away, here’s what I learned:

Reuters is reporting that, perhaps unsurprisingly, the new Indiana Jones movie has annoyed members of Russia’s Communist Party.
“Our women don’t look like Nazis, but maybe Cate Blanchett was threatened by unemployment, so … she made this film,” says one. Adds another: “Harrison Ford and Cate Blanchett (are) second-rate actors, serving as the running dogs of the CIA. We need to deprive these people of the right of entering the country.”
Honestly, you just can’t win these days when trying to pick cartoonish villains for your George Lucas movie.
Okay, so I promised to keep the Invincible poll up for two weeks. And I am! But now it has a friend, because the new Indiana Jones movie came out today! Vote below the cut, or on the sidebar… And yes, it will also be there for two weeks. Continue reading
