Flashback: 14-year old Dave Lowe’s Revenge of the Jedi fan comic from 1980. There’s Luke/Leia kissing and sleeveless Vader! (via) In a more professional capacity, he also did some work for a Sci-Fi Channel Star Wars marathon back in 1993.
- Fan sites: MizzeeOh, we we know as a contributer over at EUC, has launched a new KOTOR site, Carbonite Dreams.
- Howto: A cheap custom lightsaber at Instructables.
- Lists: Topless Robot places Boba Fett in the #1 spot in their list of the 10 most awesome characters ruined by fans. Can I get an amen? (The real shocker of the article: Sonic the Hedgehog has fans?)
The Mando bug has never bitten me, but for those of you into the whole Boba Fett thing (or just want a brief behind-the-scenes look at the 90’s EU) check out this blog entry by Daniel Keys Moran reminiscing about Star Wars, as well as a two-part interview over at bobafett.com. Moran wrote a handful of SW shorts, most notably The Last One Standing, aka the Fett piece from Tales of the Bounty Hunters. (Warning: Some language, bitterness.)
And for the hardcore Fett fans who’ve already seen this all – Moran showed up yesterday in the TFN thread I nabbed the links from. (Thanks, Trip!)
Although there’s no price noted in the official release, it appears that Barnes & Noble has it retailing for $3.50.
The starwars.com item also gives fans a look at the Fettastic finished cover for Legacy of the Force: Bloodlines, which is due out in September.
At a recent ROTS press junket, Rick McCallum leaked a bit of information about the live-action TV project. Comments from him and Ian McDiarmid lend a lot of credence to the theory that fanboy-favorite Boba Fett will somehow be involved. Coming Soon has the best round-up I’ve seen.
