Celebrate the Star Wars Decade

The impact of Star Wars on comics (and vice versa) is impossible to ignore. That impossibility leads to an inevitability that there will be Star Wars features at NY Comic Con. And luckily, this year's con occurs ten years after The Phantom Menace was released rekindling the fervent passion for the sci-fi spaghetti western. It would only take seeing that movie to realize that we had all made a huge mistake and George Lucas was a greedy bastard who had no problem milking his own franchise for as much money as possible...but that's a whole other post. According to Medium at Large, on Saturday, February 7, at the IGN theater at NY Comic Con there will be a panel from 1-2 PM featuring Steve Sansweet and some "famous-maybe infamous-guests" to look back at the past decade of the Star Wars brand. The explosive rebirth of the brand is truly astounding and does merit a closer look. There will be a sneak peak from Star Wars: The Clone Wars as well as the chance for attendees to influence a future project. Could the infamous guest be Billy Dee Williams, aka Lando Calrissian? That's what my money is on. It should be a great panel, so check it out if you're so inclined. Oh, and it's not a trap. Celebrate the Star Wars Decade
