Finally we have a name for Jeff Grubb’s upcoming Star Wars novel. Scourge will be a paperback novel (scheduled for release in April 2012) featuring Hutts and will take place before the NJO, and according to Star Wars Books it will cover the murder of a Jedi and “the investigation into the Hutt’s criminal enterprises.” Oh, there will also be a male human Jedi Knight named Mander Zuma. If you’d like to find out a little more about Jeff Grubb, then be sure to check out his blog Grubb Street.

Nicholas Hyde is an artist who enjoys taking classic Star Wars characters and reinventing them with a touch of modern flare. Whether it’s Jabba the Hutt as a pimp, Chewbacca flashing gang signs, or an Ewok with an AK-47, all of them share a “down in the Hood” theme. Influenced by 90’s skateboard graphics, the 32 year old Oregon artist isn’t worried about copyright infringement and has dozens of pieces for sale in various media, be it posters, prints, or cards. Feel free to take a look at his work and let us know what you think of these creative variations.

Why? Because sharks are the BAMF’s (umm… Biggest And Meanest Fish?) of the sea. When you go swimming at the beach and see the lifeguard running toward the water, you don’t suddenly strain to hear if he is yelling at some teenagers for excessive horseplay. You are listening for one word. “SHARK!” That lifeguard could be yelling at you that the doctor called and said you have a brain tumor and it would be a relief, as long as he wasn’t yelling “SHARK!”
Sharks are nature’s perfect biological murder machine. They are the Pac Man of the sea and everything else in the ocean is an energy dot. From their flesh shredding face daggers to a digestive system that can pass a license plate they are built for one thing, kill it and eat it.
So without further preamble I give you:
