While I was at the grocery store, I took a spin down the magazine aisle and looked at the latest issues of Legacy and Dark Times from DH Comics.

Legacy issue number seven features a really nice cover of Luke in Jedi robes. Skimming through the issue, I didn't pick up on him being referenced in the storyline, but he's the only one on the cover. You Luke fans will probably want this one.

Now the Dark Times issue I was really pleased with- it's number two, I think. Vader is only in it briefly, but he's a pensive Vader, conflicted by the ethics of the Empire. So much of the official post-ROTS portrayals of Vader have been very two dimensional, showing him as mindlessly evil and angry, as though the character became static for twenty years from Mustafar to Endor. It gave me hope that will see more complex Vader stories in officially licensed stuff and not just in fanfiction.

Check 'em out!

I've never seen SW comics in any store except TFAW. Lucky you! Maybe we should stop at TFAW on Saturday and see what they have...like that pensive Vader.

Check out the comics section at your local Freddy's. I was only at the Sandy Fred Meyer.

But TFAW sounds like a plan!

And...Sunday is the Portland Comic Book Show at Memorial Coliseum. There's not another one until November. Hmm....

I'm snowed in and can't get to the bookstore. Drat! Drat! Drat! But thanks for the heads up. ;) Did you buy it, purchance?

No, but me and erboo are going to lunch tomorrow, and then afterwards we're going to stop by TFAW , which is Dark Horse's retail arm.

Do you need a copy?

I'd love one - but I live on the other coast. :( So is TFAW discount by any chance? *sound of gears turning*

You Luke fans? Do you no longer walk among us?

I'm so envious of you all living so close, and me out here alone in the Midwest. ::sniff::

Do you no longer walk among us?

Err, no, that's not what I meant. But you know that among the Luke-Vader group the attraction is not equally distributed and we each usually lean more to one character than the other. That's all.

Or am I being totally too serious again, and you meant it as a joke? Entirely possible.
