'Star Wars: Tales from the Far, Far Away' Anthology Can Be Yours for Free


In pop culture, there may not be a bigger phenomenon than Star Wars. Since the original film debuted in 1977, it has consumed fans from all walks of life in every iteration of the mythology. Movies, books, comics, animation, video games, and more have tried to satiate the hunger of fans for decades. Fans have made their own films and stories too. The Star Wars: Tales from the Far, Far Away anthology is an example of professional writers and artists taking their own fandom and making a passionate volume of stories for absolutely free. 

A blend of comics and prose, Tales From the Far, Far, Away is an 80-page exploration into the nooks and crannies of the vast rich Star Wars universe. Coordinated by writers Tim Daniel and Michael Moreci with artists like K. R. Whalen and Drew Zucker, the anthology spans eras right after Return of the Jedi to right before The Force Awakens

Lovingly told with great regard to its history, two stories, in particular, pay homage to the Clone Wars and Rebels CG animated series. 'Ronin,' by Morgan Luthi, Michael Moreci, and Jim Campbell tells the back story of Rebels’ Grand Inquisitor before succumbing to the Dark Side. Meanwhile, 'Touching Darkness,' by Moreci, Phillip Sevy, Juancho Velez and Dave Baron, gives us some insight into what Ahsoka Tano and Quinlan Vos did after the end of Clone Wars‘ fifth season.

Some of the biggest fans of Star Wars are also professional comic book creators and this collection is as passionate as any fan-fiction you've ever seen. It's not driven by money either as the entire volume is available for download at no cost. You can download it here. See the entire list of contributors below. 

With 'Rogue One: A Star Wars Story' being released today, you can never have enough Star Wars stories. Get your download now.

WONDER WOMAN OF THE DAY: Fitness Model Gia Macool Embodies the Amazon Princess

The closest we'll ever get, probably, to superheroes in real life is through the great work of cosplayers. You see them at every pop culture convention from the very basic to extremely elaborate costume design. However, you don't have to be a cosplayer to enjoy dressing up as your favorite superhero from time to time. Take fitness model and entrepreneur Gia Macool for example. An accomplished fitness competitor and model, Macool is also a big fan of DC Comics' Wonder Woman. She shows her love of the iconic Amazon Princess in her fitness wear, meal prep accessories and even a full blown photo shoot in a Wonder Woman costume. 

For decades comics have featured very muscular superheroes, male and female, epitomizing the human form at its strongest. So when bodybuilders and fitness pros decide to suit up as these costumed heroes, they are the embodiment of those fictional characters in the flesh. Macool looks like she stepped out of the pages of a Wonder Woman comic with a suit …

An Artist Will Get His Revenge in The Post-WWII Original Graphic Novel SIMON SAYS

Image Comics announces an all-new, original graphic novel Simon Says by Andre R. Frattino and Jesse Lee which will paint a post-World War II Europe in a scarlet shade of revenge this September.


Simon Says is a drama-filled, crime noir story that follows a former artist to the Führer who hunts down and seeks justice upon the Nazis he witnessed murder his friends and loved ones during the war. It is an original graphic novel inspired by true events and by a real-world Holocaust survivor, Simon Wiesenthal, an artist who lost his family and took justice into his own hands.
"Simon Says is about an innocent and gentleman, an artist, whose family and life are destroyed by a real-world event. Not something sci-fi or fanciful, but something that has happened and could happen again. In that way, it's the story of any of us, and how we would respond if who we were and what we had were lost,” said Frattino. "The real-life, famed Nazi hunter, Simon Wiesenthal, was quoted as once sayin…
