PiercingMetal Thoughts: While I realize that this final installment in “The Skywalker Saga” left a lot of fans for want, I have to admit that I really enjoyed it. I felt it was a proper closing to a group of characters that were as much as part of my childood as my adulthood and kept my geek interests fed properly. Now as far as the comic book adaptations of these films, I’ve not purchased any of these for myself since “Star Wars: Return Of The Jedi” and nowadays I will just grab a collected edition of the mini-series since that is where I am on them. Maybe I will snag this one just the same but June is a bit of a ways away and there is no sense in deciding right now. I’ve got a lot of Toy Fair items to finish up so will end this particular announcement with the question of “what do you think about this news?” Are you planning on purchasing and for that matter, did you enjoy the film? Chime in down below and I will see you next time.

With that in mind – and in spite of ourselves – BAD IDEA is going to produce an intentionally limited number of series at any given time: no more than one to two single issues per month. Single-issue, monthly comics are the fuel that keeps BAD IDEA’s engine running – and, over the past year, we’ve been making a ton of them in secret with some of the industry’s best and most respected creators.
