Marvel and IDW have three new Star Wars releases today.

Star Wars #2 (2020)

Writer: Charles Soule
Artist: Jesus Saiz
Cover Artist: R. B. Silva

“No…I am your father.” In the wake of the events following The Empire Strikes Back, it is a dark time for the heroes of the Rebellion. The Rebel fleet…scattered following a disastrous defeat at the Battle of Hoth. Han Solo…lost to the bounty hunter, Boba Fett, after being frozen in carbonite. And after being lured into a trap on Cloud City and bested in a vicious lightsaber duel against the evil Darth Vader, Luke Skywalker…learned the horrible truth about his past. Vader did not kill Luke’s father Anakin–Vader is Luke’s father! Now, after narrowly escaping the dark lord’s clutches, and wounded and reeling from the revelation, Luke, Princess Leia, Lando Calrissian, the Wookiee Chewbacca and the droids C-3PO and R2-D2 must fight their way back to the Rebel Alliance-for the fate of the entire galaxy is at stake! After so many losses is victory still possible? But, what Leia, Luke and their ragtag band of freedom fighters do not realize is that they have only traded one Imperial trap for another! Enter the cunning and vengeful Imperial Commander Zahra, at the helm of the Tarkin’s Will! Writer Charles Soule (DARTH VADER) and artist Jesus Saiz (DOCTOR STRANGE) are taking us all to the galaxy far, far away next year! With covers by RB Silva (POWERS OF X)! THE GREATEST SPACE ADVENTURE OF ALL TIME BEGINS THIS JANUARY!

Max Reebo’s Pick of the Week: “When I Paint My Masterpiece”

January 27, 2020 at 6:38 pm | Posted in Max Reebo Pick of the Week, Music, Regular Feature | Leave a comment

Max Reebo’s pick this week is “When I Paint My Masterpiece” by The Band.

The sixties and seventies were decades before my time, however, I’ve always been a lover of music regardless of when it came out. Surprisingly, I went a long time without ever know who The Band was. Yes, The Band. When a musical group can simply call themselves that, they better bring it.

The group started out as a backup band for Ronnie Hawkins and later Bob Dylan. In 1970 they went off on their own as The Band and started a career that stretched into ten studio albums. If you’ve never seen the band, I highly recommend checking out the documentary that Martin Scorsese did, The Last Waltz.

There are a lot of good songs to choose from, classics like “The Weight”, “Up On Cripple Creek”, “The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down”, and “Don’t Do It.” And let us not forget, “When I Paint My Masterpiece” from Cahoots.
