The Dan Shamble, Zombie P.I. books are a joy to read but over the years Kevin J. Anderson has written quite a few short stories to go along with them. Unfortunately those stories have been scattered about, some as individual eBooks, some published in anthologies with other authors that I’ve been hesitant to pick up. But now with Working Stiff, all of those stories have been combine together in one anthology dedicated completely to Dan Shamble and his unnatural adventures. Click here to read our full review.

Monday Funny: Licks of Justice

Jean Claude Van Damme filmed a bunch of green screen footage for the “Jean Claude Van Damme Make My Movie Challenge”. While this one isn’t the winner, it’s my favorite. For anyone who remembers the old tootsie pop commercials, this one brings back the nostalgia.

Be sure to check out the rest on Funny or Die.

Newly announced today: Kathleen Kennedy and J.J. Abrams will be at Star Wars Celebration Anaheim for a Thursday morning kick off on April 16th. They’ve also revealed previews of all the art prints by the featured artists which you can check out here. Plus there’s some new collecting panels. I have to admit, I’m tempted to check out the one on Ewok collectibles.

Return of the Jedi Luke is part of Wave 5 of Hasbro’s 6-inch Black Series figures. The slim figure comes in his ominous black clothes with just a lightsaber and an optional chest piece (to pull off the open tunic look). The initial figs that hit the pegs came with the usual array of paint apps, and none of them really caught my eye.
