After being steeped in Star Wars during the lead-up to The Force Awakens, especially during my recent playthrough of Knights of the Old Republic, I made an impulsive purchase and picked up a copy of Star Wars: Tales of the Jedi: Omnibus vol. 1 (featuring cover art by my boy Steve Ellis) for an uncomfortable amount of money. I remember flipping through the comics when I was but a youngling, and thinking that it "didn't feel like real Star Wars." But the couple of issues I looked at stuck with me, and after a couple of decades, it merited a second look.

I can now say with confidence that Star Wars: Tales of the Jedi: Omnibus vol. 1 is amazing. I don't think I've ever loved the character and environment designs more in a comic book. I might even like this more than Hellboy, which I didn't think was possible. Well worth the $/redacted/ that I paid for it. Now to save up for volume 2...

I'm a Rogue Squadron and Legacy fan myself.

Can I borrow some money? Like 30% of your future income?

I'm a Rogue Squadron and Legacy fan myself.

I like the comics, and buy SW series when I have the $ (So, not often) ;P

My two favorite books/novels of the (now defunct) Expanded Universe are "The Courtship of Princess Leia" (The title is just the beginning of the awesome. It captures the characters from the movies nearly perfectly. Very enjoyable) And "I, Jedi" which takes a character from the Rogue Squadron Novels and puts him front and center of his own story.

These 2 books are some of the few that I not only purchased in hardback instead of waiting for paperback, but have read multiple times. (Despite my reading backlog of unread books getting bigger each week)
:)
So yeah, Old Wiz recommended and approved! ;)

Hellboy is blasphemous here and there, after all.

I got my Demons and Devils mini package from my old Kickstarter purchase. Took a while, but the minis are kewl


Minis are always kewl.

They would be kewler if I ever had time to paint them or actually use them, but we can't have EVERYthing.

Yes! Built within a huge mangrove by the ocean edge bartended by a grumpy old hadrozee and his flamboyant halfling partner. Oh and they are ex-pirates. Because everything is better with pirates.

Yeah I'm pretty certain that will be my retirement. Painting miniatures and tending a string of senior dog rescues.

You've found me out. Cuff me and take me to ghost jail.

Highlander V: The Source drinking game: drink two bottles of Jack Daniels and pass out while trying to insert the disc into the DVD player.


I'm thinking of playing the Battlestar Galactica drinking game tonight

Well, it's not much of a game- just drinking and watching BSG.

I really should do more productive things.

But we monkeys are evolutionary disposed to enjoying fermented fruit products.

Some scientists postulate it was one way we began to think 'out of the instinctual box'

Hell, look at my cousin Enzo in Brazil. Now that's a genius drunk (but kinda mean)

I'm more of a happy monkey when drunk

Sadly my recovery time is pretty damn long these days.

I hate to say this man, but you might have a problem

Watching Highlander II is such a horrible thing to do to yourself. Have you tried Bad Sequels Anonymous? I'm a Friend of Neo. Call me if you need a sponsor. One day at a time.


I've recently begun watching Battlestar Galactica from the beginning (I've never had cable, yay for internet streaming!) So, I'm curious, what is this drinking game you speak of.


1 person marked this as a favorite.

1) Put on Battlestar Galactica
2) Procure alcoholic beverage
3) Drink while watching
4) Repeat steps 2-3 as necessary

I'm a little disappointed you don't take a drink every time someone mentions the possibility of a Cylon in their midst.

Once upon a time, there was the Smurf drinking game.

Every time someone said "Papa Smurf", you had to chug a beer.

Someone very stupidly used an episode in which Papa Smurf was lost and the entire village went out to find him.

I was not involved, but I did witness the aftermath. Messy.

I don't know the statistics yet. I have yet to inaugurate my binge


FH: any updates on the status of the Mass Effect game?
