It's taken over a decade but Browncoats will finally get their wish in January when the second season of Firefly debuts.

It won't be on TV.  Instead it will be on the pages of Dark Horse Comics.

The second issue of the much hyped series, The Star Wars hit the shelves of your local comics retailer recently. Continuing the story of George Lucas's first draft script for his 1977 blockbuster, the second issue of the Dark Horse series ups the ante.

Helmetgirls-thm

March brings us more things I love, and our first Meh review. Actually, it’s a healthy helping of Meh (hey, they can’t all be winners, can they?). But we review and share anyway, because just because it didn’t work for me does not mean it won’t work for you. So, let’s roll.
