One of the most captivating characters from Star Wars: The Clone Wars, and a source of heated rumors, Asajj Ventress is a figure that has latched on to the imaginations of Star Wars fans. From her rich personality to her striking looks, Ventress is person worth further focus.

Asajj was given birth on the page during the creation of Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones. Concept artist Dermot Power designed a female apprentice for Darth Sidious. While Dooku was used instead, the design for Ventress didn’t go to waste. She was picked up for the Clone Wars. Leland Chee named her Asajj after Lady Asaji Washizua, a character from Akira Kurosawa’s Throne of Blood. She appeared in the Dark Horse comics, in video games,  in Genndy Tartakovsky’s Clone Wars, and later, Star Wars: The Clone Wars.

Whether she’ll live to see the light of a day in future films or television series, one thing fans can look forward to is her appearance in Christie Golden’s upcoming novel which will be out next summer. Until then, let us enjoy the wonderfully dark and complex beauty that is Ventress. Continue Reading The Asajj Ventress Gallery…

Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

501stCast: Episode 83 has some Star Wars news and rumors on Star Wars Episode VII, Phineas & Ferb, and the Lucas museum. The rest of the episode is devoted to troop reports. If you’re wanting to catch up on what the 501st Legion is up to, they’ve got you covered.

Bombad Radio: Episode 157 is a nice movie discussion show that stays spoiler free but interesting. Hosts James and Jeremiah are joined by guests Steve C. (Disney Infinity Cast, The Mousecast) and Adam D. (Drogemeister Blog, Blue Box) as they cover Godzilla, The Amazing Spiderman 2, The LEGO Movie, Transformers: Age of Extinction, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, Guardians of the Galaxy, X-Men: Days of Future Past, Edge of Tomorrow, and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. From the best movies they’ve seen this year to the worst, and what they’re looking forward to next, they cover a lot of films.

Coffee with Kenobi: Coffee Chat with Mark Dodson is a good interview, though the audio can be pretty rough. The interview is courtesy of James Howell, unfortunately all of James’ side of the conversation is really crumby sounding, however Mark’s side of the audio is excellent. Mark talks about working as a laborer for Industrial Light & Magic, being fascinated with voice actors as a kid, doing all the voices for the gremlins in the movie Gremlins, and how doing the voice of Salacious Crumb got him that part. He covers how his audition for Ackbar led to Salacious Crumb, being an extra in Howard the Duck, and talks about tips for voice over. If you don’t mind the silent gaps and static riddled questions, Mark’s side of the conversation is well worth listening to.
