Star Wars is Poetry has returned!

I doubt anyone will remember the little project I started on this blog called “Star Wars is Poetry”. I started it because I felt that Star Wars itself is a whole lot more than just the movies and people may not really know how poetic a lot of the star wars writing actually is. You don’t really get to experience much of it if any of it watching the movies but the books and the comics are actually full of hidden poetic treasures and I wanted to perhaps unearth and share some of them within my “Star Wars is Poetry” blog posts.

Doctor Aphra Galactic Icons Variant cover edit – Kylo Ren

Darksider Blog Banner

One of the things I love doing is editing comic covers into textless versions. I’m not particularly adept at it, but it’s something I like to do. The Galactic Icons variant covers for Doctor Aphra are pretty neat but when I saw this one of Kylo Ren I just knew I had to edit it. My version is also enhanced because I didn’t like the lighting in the original image and the tones were a little too red for me but other than that, it’s pretty much unchanged.

Star Wars is Poetry – The Emperor’s Warning

Darksider Blog Banner I can’t take any credit for finding this piece which I originally saw on a Reddit post.

SWTOR: Armour Comparison #02 Gav Daragon Armour Set

SWTOR Blog Banner

It’s SWTOR Armour Comparison time again where I take a random armour set from the game and compare it to examples taken from other star wars media such as comics, film, books etc. Did the SWTOR creators get it right or did they make a complete mess of an otherwise perfectly good set of armour? Let’s find out… Continue reading → SWTOR: Armour Comparison #02 Gav Daragon Armour Set

Tales of the Jedi – Golden Age of the Sith

serene

I’ve started reading all of the Old Republic comics. I decided that if I want to understand as much as I can about the Star Wars universe, I might as well start at the beginning. These comics also have relevance to SWTOR (the game that I play) and it’s actually pretty cool getting to see who all of the important characters were and what their roles were in the SW galaxy as a whole. Now I can look at the armour sets in the game and know the background behind the characters that wore it.

My Star Wars addiction knows no bounds it seems. I have now become a member of the Marvel website and I am subscribing to read their comics. I’ve actually always been a huge comic and manga fan so I am happy to be going back to my “roots” so-to-speak.
