Been away for a while. A little R & R. Personal reasons.
Got Guardians of the Galaxy Art book, and Star Wars: A New Dawn books yesterday. Really looking forward to reading them.
This decision of Lucasfilm to start from scratch with the EU has every fan voicing their opinion it seems. After the initial shock, (read some of the books, mainly the Rogue Squadron series) I know it's a sign of the times. Marvel and DC both have revamped their titles to 'start over' as well, with thier Marvel Now and New 52 series. Disney/Lucasfilm seem to be just going the same route, making sure the new kids (at heart or otherwise) do not feel swamped the the wealth of stories. The old books and stories will always be there. The characters that are in those stories will always be there, as long as people from my generation especially, keep it alive. You can't undo what's already been done. But you can make a concentrated effort to make it simpler and in some ways better.
And, what do you know, maybe their might be some artwork from yours truly coming out regarding it.
