An amazing book


If you're a fan of STAR WARS, you should really check out the new coffee-table book The Making of Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back... it's loaded with incredible behind-the-scenes photos of the filming of EMPIRE, like this:

And this:

CHECK OUT THOSE MATTRESSES! TOO COOL!

Read all about it HERE!

Just plain amazing. Whenever I marvel at the longevity of STAR WARS and remember how being a fan in 1978 often brought ridicule upon my head, I just smile and think: THE GEEKS WON! Star Wars is deeply entrenched in our popular culture and that couldn't make me happier!

BONUS: An interview with Boba Fett himself, Jeremy Bulloch, who once visited Comix Connection along with David Prowse!

Phenomenal book!

More inspiring for a person creating a fictional world than nearly any other book.

Boba Fett! Kandosii! I want you to know, Bill, that I am fangirling all over the place right now. Let me give you a Mandalorian emoticon in thanks: T

Also, I can't believe they were here and I wasn't, yet...sigh. Stupid timing.

It's on my Christmas wish list! Empire was the best Star Wars movie!
