Star Wars The Force Awaken teaser

It's kind of weird that I haven't mentioned my love of Star Wars much if at all on this site. I think that has to do with not liking a lot of the Expanded Universe material (mainly the  stuff after the OT.) My thoughts on the teaser are below.

Thoughts on Starfire in R.E.B.E.L.S.

Mainly about the problem I had with this portrayal.

Try Out Storm #1 Free

Storm #1 is currently free digitally with the code stormchasers until December 1st. I'll be giving it a try because Storm is awesome and it's free. Good thing too because I'm still not over Marvels' $3.99 price tag.

Scarlet Spiders #1 Preview

Ben, how I missed you! And having Kaine team up with Ben is a big plus. This could get pretty emotional. After reading the preview this mini series and the Spiderverse Team Up #3 are the only Spider books I'm getting.

R.E.B.E.L.S. #22

I'm not sure what happened but originally Starfire was supposed to be on Robinsons' Justice League book. Plans fell through and she ended up in R.E.B.E.L.S. instead. I'm not exactly thrilled with everything that was done with the character in this series. This issue however stood out because it dealt with her past, had her doing something about an injustice she saw and had one of the greatest moments with Vril Dox I've ever seen. That said it does deal with the issue of sexual abuse against women so be warned.

Starfire Statues

I did say I was doing a Starfire month in November which might not have been a good choice because of the season. Still I wanted to do something for one of my favorite characters that often gets neglected or worse. For this post I'll be showing some of the products based around her comic book design. Which means this will not include anything from the cartoon.

I've already done a review on the Mattel figure along with figures of the characters' sister and alternate reality daughter as well as the new 52 Starfire done by DC Collectibles. While I never bought it (because it's too expensive) there's also the Tonner doll.
We'll be looking over some of the statues and busts in this post.

There needs to be more information of course but this looks interesting.

Spider-Girls' Ron Frenz Interview

Wherein Ron gives his two cents on how Mayday Parker is being written, Spiderverse and the current killing in comics. Even if you're not familiar with the character it's interesting insight on creative choices, character voices', continuity and the trying to figure out the point of events that kill off so many characters.

The Big Event After the Weeklies

Could DC just post what issues Booster is in? Because I'm not buying that many issues. I'm not sure I want to get any at the moment. Looks like I might be skipping DC for a couple months unless something catches my eye. The only series I know I'm getting in April is a Star Wars book so it might be some light reading.
