The Weekly Scoundrel Presents – New Year’s Update

swlogo
Happy 2017, everyone! I had a great time writing for The Galactic Roundtable and Channel Star Wars here last year, and really appreciate all the likes, follows, and comments, but, as you may or may not have noticed, the site is no longer working and I don’t anticipate it ever getting fixed.

Have no fear, though, friends, as I intend to carry on writing my insightful and witty (I think they’re insightful and witty, anyway) Star Wars posts on my regular blog, Me, Myself & Star Wars, and my Star Wars comic discussions on a new blog I’m going to start for The Weekly Scoundrel. Hopefully I’ll be able to get all the old posts exported over, but, worst case scenario, I’ll just copy and paste them, so they’ll all be over there eventually, and I’ll be making a group post soon for the issues I’ve missed recently (since I’m sure you’ve been patiently waiting to know what I think about them).

In addition, I’ll be adding a podcast to my Star Wars repertoire early this year:  the Hyperspace PodBlast! It’s going to be a 30-minute, weekly show that’ll focus on characters and story, as well as tons of speculation and theories about the future of the Star Wars universe. Initially, it’ll be myself, a life-long Star Wars über-nerd, and a female co-host that’s only recently become a fan of the galaxy far, far away, so there will definitely be two distinct points of view, but I’m also going to be inviting other Star Wars fans to come on and pose questions or topics so we can talk about them together; I want the podcast to be interactive and more about what other people want to talk about since my blog is, as the name implies, all about what I want to talk about. So, if you’d be interested in joining in with a question, topic, or being on, send an e-mail to hyperspacepodblast@gmail.com and we’ll get the ball rolling.

So, while last year was a tough one in many respects, I enjoyed my blogging portion of it and am looking forward to carrying that on this year, as well as adding the new podcasting element. I hope at least one person reading this is keen on keeping up with me, and I hope to be talking to that person (and several more ’cause, I mean, c’mon, let’s be honest, I’m great…okay, I know, I’m average…I was trying self-confidence…it didn’t fit) on the Hyperspace PodBlast! sometime soon! Huzzah exclamation points! Anyway, all the best this year, and may the Force be with you (even if you don’t keep up with me…see, I’m nice, you should totally check out my other Star Wars offerings)…

TWS: Thinkin’ ‘Bout Ink – Poe Dameron #9

Marvel Star Wars
Ladies and gentlemen:  it’s not only comic book day, but it’s also Rogue One Eve, which, I daresay, is more exciting than Christmas Eve will be…yeah, that’s right, I went there…and I don’t take it back. Star Wars > Christmas. That’s where my head is…who’s with me? Anyway, this week we catch up with Poe Dameron and his strange side adventure with C-3PO & Oddy that has some very interesting developments that pertain not only to this series, but also to The Force Awakens, so let’s not prolong the inevitable anymore and get started!

TWS: Thinkin’ ‘Bout Ink – Doctor Aphra #1

Marvel Star WarsOkay, okay, I know, it’s been half a week since comic book day and you’ve been sitting behind your computer or phone screen frantically refreshing this site, anxiously awaiting my post about Doctor Aphra…I sincerely apologize (yes, I know nobody was actually doing that, just let me have this one for my self-esteem, geez)…anyway, this week gave us the triumphant (sort of) return of Doctor Aphra! I’ve been really looking forward to this comic since the announcement for two reasons:  1) I miss the Darth Vader series so I’m pretending this is a sequel (since it sort of is…sort of). 2) I love Black Krrsantan. So, what could go wrong?!?! So far, the answer is nothing. Now, let’s dispense the pleasantries and get to the action!

The Weekly Scoundrel Presents – Star Wars Battlefront: A Year(ish) Later

swbtlfrntTo commemorate the release of the Scarif expansion for Star Wars Battlefront, I thought I’d write up a little review of sorts concerning where the game is now versus where it was when it came out just over a year ago. Cards on the table, I hadn’t played the game for a very long time before I started logging more hours over the last week or so when I decided this would be a cool idea for a post. When the game came out, I enjoyed it, it was Star Wars and it was beautiful, how could I not? Unfortunately, after the initial excitement wore off, the game turned out to be lacking in content and overall underwhelming. So, what do I think now, a year later? I guess you’ll just have to click below to find out…(+1 clickbait)

TWS: Thinkin’ ‘Bout Ink – Star Wars Annual #2

Marvel Star WarsComic book day, oh yeah, livin’ the dream, dreamin’ in color…I’m not sure where I was going with that, plus it’s actually the day after comic book day…anyway, we got the second annual, uh, annual Star Wars comic and it was pretty decent. Definitely love, love the new character, Pash (Bash), and really hope to see her again, but wasn’t head over heels for the overall story. That said, though, it was a good read, and worth the price for Pash’s introduction alone, so how ’bout you click that link down there and we kick this review into maximum overdrive! (That’s right, Stephen King reference, boom.)
