Star Wars SDCC Behind the Scenes Trailer Observations

Hi everyone! Anii here! I designed this site for Tim & we collab on Ode Comic (oh and we’re totally gettin’ married this fall ^_~) Tim is letting me guest post some stuff here.

Alright so at SDCC this weekend, Star Wars debuted this amazing behind-the-scenes peek! If you haven’t seen it, here is the video.

There are a TON of behind the scenes clips and you could pour over it for days, but below are some of my personal favorite stills and things that caught my eye. I will say I’m stoked to see the use to puppets, physical film, and Han Solo, Rey & Finn together~~! I thin…{READ MORE}

Sorry I’m late, I was reading comics.

So first off, I’d like to apologize for being away for so long. I’d like to say I got distracted (which is true, and we are about to get into that), but the main reason I didn’t finish my Rebels reviews was because honestly the mass amount of spoilers kind of ruined the end of the season for me. Now that I’ve removed myself from that by a few months, I plan to go back and rewatch those episodes, and hopefully post something insightful about them. We’ll cross that bridge when we get to it. In the meantime, I was telling you about how I got distracted.

It was November 2014, when…{READ MORE}

Rebels Review: Idiot’s Array

Hello, what have we here?

On this week’s episode of Star Wars Rebels, we see the return of Lando Calrissian. “Idiot’s Array” reintroduces the smooth talking scoundrel with a classic case of “lost him in a card game” when Zeb loses Chopper to Lando while playing a high stakes game of sabacc. After a few of the heavier ‘fate of the galaxy’ themed episodes, “Idiot’s Array” was a welcome side story that showed us some great insight into many of the core characters as they were exposed to someone that the audience was already familiar with. We’ve already had a bit of this from Vade…{READ MORE}

Rebels Review: Path of the Jedi

Rebels returns this week with “Path of the Jedi”. This is an episode that focuses entirely on Kanan and Ezra trying to find their footing again after Ezra’s brush with the Dark Side in “Gathering Forces”. To do this, Ezra must face a challenge, much like the challenge Luke faces in the cave on Dagobah. To echo themes that have been brushed upon in previous episodes, “Path of the Jedi” is as much a trial for Ezra as it is for Kanan, as he is more unsure of his ability to teach Ezra than ever. From the opening music sequence of this episode, which fades in softly rather than bursti…{READ MORE}

16 of My Favorite Things from 2014

As the hours tick by and the fact that it’s 2015 begins to finally set in, I can’t help but reflect upon all of the great things that happened over the course of this past year. This article began as a list I was just making for myself, but I figured what better way to share a ton of my interests with all of you? It’s a good way to get to know each other better.

Forgive me if this just becomes an excuse to talk about a whole bunch of things that I love. I tried my best to place these in order, but some are hard to arrange. We’ll see how it goes. Let me know what some of your f…{READ MORE}

Midseason Rebels Review

When tossing around ideas for a blog, one of the first things I wanted to be able to do was write reviews for Star Wars Rebels. I always love seeing what everyone has to say right after each episode airs, and it’s interesting to watch the opinions and theories develop right alongside the characters as Rebels plays out. Sadly I missed the boat on reviewing many of those episodes, but since the new episode debuts today, I thought it would be a good time to sum up my feelings on the series so far. So before delving into “Path of the Jedi”, here’s my Midseason Rebels Review.

Dark Horse Comics:
A Retrospective

I grew up with the Expanded Universe, and I have a deep love for its stories and characters. While the novels that constituted the bulk of the EU aren’t going anywhere (they will continue to be printed by Del Rey under the Legends banner), it’s unclear whether or not we will ever see new Legends stories. The Star Wars comics once printed by Dark Horse are a different story.

Beginning in 2015, Dark Horse will relinquish all publishing and reprint rights to Marvel, ending a 23 year run of Star Wars comics. Not only will Dark Horse Star Wars comics be pulled for sale, but they wi…{READ MORE}

Welcome to Port Nowhere!

Someone once told me that the best way to start a creative project was to “just do it”. He was actually talking about webcomics at the time, and his advice has served me well on many occasions. Starting a blog, however, feels different. This is a place where I’ll be putting myself up into the public lens, rather than just my concepts and ideas. Coming up with a name took forever. Writing this introduction took even longer. I put a lot of time and thought into what I would say here, but in the end, I decided that “just do it” doesn’t have to apply to only comics. So here we go.
