MATT-AT: New Journeys and Tales for the Star Wars Universe, Marvel Style

Marvel Comics Editor Jordan D. White is keeping busy this fall, and its not just his work on Deadpool causing that to happen.

When you’re tasked with shepherding three separate “Star Wars” comics and ensuring the license’s return to Marvel Entertainment nearly 30 years since Star Wars No. 107 StarWars107was published, ending the original series’ 10-year run that started with the release of A New Hope in cinemas, it’s only natural to have a lot to do.

The work White is doing as editor on the new books — Star Wars, Star Wars: Darth Vader and Star Wars: Princess Leia — is remarkably similar to the publisher’s other titles, yet he and the creative teams are not just crafting new tales set between Episode IV: A New Hope and Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back, they are engaging in and becoming part of something far more vast in scope, taking the first steps of creating canon for a saga whose reach is global and evergreen.

Star Wars Weekends Week 4 Recap

Mickey's Jedi Blend

So we have made it to week 4. First I want to apologize for the delay in the recaps of week four and week five. As soon as Star Wars Weekends ended, my private life became extremely busy between work and family. I know I have heard from several of you and want to thank each of you for your support, thoughts, and prayers. The encouragement my family and I have received is incredible and I’m so humbly grateful.

Now down to business. Star Wars Weekends 2014 week 4: the most anticipated weekend of the year. Some of the biggest names in Star Wars were there. This week brought us the coolest cat in the galaxy, Mr. Billy Dee Williams (Lando Calrissian) himself. He was joined by the great Ray Park (Darth Maul) and Taylor Gray (Ezra Bridger from the upcoming Star Wars Rebels), both who were here for their second consecutive weeks. Yet these great stars were not the main draw on the busiest and hottest weekends of the year. It was Luke Skywalker himself, the great Mark Hamill making his SWW debut!

Melinda’s Brew : Stepping Into A Larger World

Blog Logo jpeg

The lengths to which I will go for Star Wars and a blog. ;-)

I recently returned from a trip to the UK — set up a long time ago “to collect” our youngest padawan, Caitlin (you met her in a couple of previous blogs I wrote for CWK), who spent her junior year at the London School of Economics and Political Science (a mouthful for any school! No wonder the Brits shorten it to LSE.). Let’s face it … this was going to be a (much needed!) vacation, too. I never had been to England, and always wanted to go. This was the chance I had been waiting for! :-)
