Ahead of its release in March, Marvel Comics has confirmed that pre-orders of the first issue of its five-issue Princess Leia mini-series has surpassed 200,000 copies, a significant milestone.
Marvel, which publishes ongoing monthlies Star Wars and Darth Vader told Comicbook.com’s Lucas Siegel about the milestone, while the line’s editor, Jordan D. White, gave some hints and teases about what is going on and to come in the other titles, including Star Wars and Darth Vader and Kanan: The Last Padawan.
Within the films, Star Wars has given audiences the Force — the mysterious energy field that binds all living things together. Those who can tap into that energy field either serve benevolent purposes (the Jedi), or they embody the selfish and deleterious evil of the dark side (the Sith)…“The Mortis Trilogy,” from Season 3 of Star Wars: The Clone Wars, is a story in which the anti-hero, Anakin Skywalker, may learn that maintaining the muddiness of the ethereal waters is essential to preventing the galaxy from ripping itself apart — rather than engaging in a sojourn of purification aligned with what the Jedi believe to be destined for the “Chosen One.”
“Does anyone have a Coca-Cola?” Those were the first words from Carrie Fisher during her surprise spotlight panel at Salt Lake Comic Con Fax Xperience after she walked onto the stage to a standing ovation. The audience loved it, and if the rest of the fans were like me they expected someone who worked for the Salt Palace (where FanX is held) to bring her a Coke. But one of the fans was more prepared and brought an unopened can of Coke up to Ms. Fisher. To thank him she gave him a full hug and a kiss on the lips, and later thanked him for the “make-out kiss and the Coke”. Even Wookiees aren’t that lucky!

I don’t think I’m the only Star Wars collector that has been aching for a great new line of die-cast. When you consider the Vintage die-cast mini vehicles, Micro Machines, all the way to the Titanium line, we’ve had some pretty good runs in die-cast.

Spoilers for Star Wars Rebels — “Vision of Hope”
In tonight’s episode of Star Wars Rebels, the Ghost crew met up with Senator Gall Trayvis when he arrived on Lothal to seek out and encourage those who would oppose the Empire. Trayvis had been an inspiration – to Hera and Ezra in particular – as they anxiously awaited each new transmission from the voice of hope.
