Here is some info from the CBR website about the new Dark Horse series, "Star Wars: Dark
Times – Fire Carrier":
"CBR News has learned that starting that month,
Dark Horse will launch the new five-issue mini series "Star Wars: Dark
Times – Fire Carrier" by Randy Stradley and Gabriel Guzman under covers
by Doug Wheatley. Set in the bleak era of Empire rule between the two
film trilogies, this particular comic will focus on Jedi Master K’Kruhk
– a surviving warrior on the run from Darth Vader who must hide two
Padawans from death on a planet under the boot of the Empire.
I´m a huge fan of maps. Almost anything that you can chart, here I am, ready to check it! I recently discovered that Dan Wallace and Jason Fry have made a pretty good job mapping the most famous galaxy of all times, and I would like to recommend this wonderful book to all maps, planets and of course, Star Wars fans.
Every planet name, system or nebula will now be easy to spot. As any book as its limitations, the authors had the excellent idea of making an appendix, available for download here, where you can find all known star systems in the Star Wars galaxy.
I hope you enjoy the journey! Click the pictures for more info.
Dark Horse has decided to bring it all back into the beggining. Together, writer Brian Wood and artist Carlos D´Anda put effort to bring us back the first days of the Star Wars universe. As they say:
"This is Star Wars as you remember it . . . and as you have never
seen it before! We’re taking you back to those heady, adventure-filled
days following the destruction of the Death Star—when the Empire ruled,
the Rebels were on the run, and the galaxy was a dangerous place where anything might happen!"
I don´t know if all the series covers will be Alex Ross´ making, but the first one is a thumbs up!
Let´s wait for the 9th of January to check how the new action will be going.

Sideshow announced recently the pre-order of a new Premium Format Figure for the Star Wars line, Master Jedi Shaak Ti. Here are some pictures of this amazing statue. You can check more pics in the Sideshow blog, here.
"Star Wars Detours™ is an animated comedy that explores what daily life
is like in a galaxy far, far away. There are no Empires striking back or
attacking clones here. Instead, Star Wars Detours focuses on the
universe's regular folks and their everyday problems... which, to be
fair, do frequently involve famous bounty hunters, crazed Ewoks, and
even a Dark Lord of the Sith."
Welcome to Star Wars: Detours: the other side of the stars, between the wars."
Sideshow launched a new line of Star Wars statues etitled "Mythos". For the moment, we can delight ourselves with the wise and nomad Ben Kenobi, the mysterious Darth Maul or the brute Gamorrean Executioner.
The only thing I can add is UAU! The sculptures are very detailed, they have a sense of movement that captures your eye, and the chosen palette combines in perfection with each character.
"A resurrected hover vehicle won’t fly through dense forests as effortlessly as the speeder bikes from Return of the Jedi, but its intuitive controls could someday allow anyone to fly it without pilot training."
It´s always good to change, and dear old "Star Wars - Jedi Academy" needed a big, big change...
Here I am, almost 5 years after the first post, with lot of Star Wars stories, images, memories, gadgets and so many other things.
I hope I was able to bring something new to the knowledge of Star Wars fans around the world through this journey and I promise will keep it for the years to come.
My only wish right now is to make the comment box grow... in comments! I check in my Clustrmap account from time to time, and I see that people from Sweden, Venezuela, U.S.A., Brazil, Thailand and Canada, visited the Academy, just yesterday! For me, this is an amazing statement. So, I would like to invite you all to comment, maybe we can learn new ways in the Force and make it even more powerfull between us padawans.
See ya soon, in a galaxy far, far away....
É sempre bom mudar, e o velho "Star Wars - Jedi Academy" precisava de uma grande, grande mudança... Aqui estou, passados mais de 5 anos desde o primeiro post, com resmas de histórias sobre Star Wars, imagens, memórias, gadgets e tantas outras coisas.
Espero ter sido capaz de acrescentar algo de novo ao conhecimento dos fãs de Star Wars de todo o globo ao longo desta jornada e prometo continuar nos anos vindouros.
De momento, o meu único desejo é fazer a caixa de comentários crescer... em comentários! De quando em vez espreito a minha conta do Clustrmaps e vejo que pessoas da Suécia, Venezuela, E.U.A., Brasil, Tailândia e Canadá, visitaram a Academia, e isto só ontem. Para mim, esta é uma constatação fantástica. Assim sendo, queria convidá-los a todos a comentarem, talvez possamos aprender novas nuances da Força e torná-la ainda mais forte entre nós padawans.
Até breve, numa galáxia muito, muito longínqua....
"La célèbre marque d’eau minérale se fait remarquer tous les ans avec un design de bouteille, souvent original, à l’occasion des fêtes de fin d’année. Le buzz de la semaine, ce sont ces bouteilles imaginées par Mandy Brencys, à l’effigie des cultissimes personnages de la saga Star Wars : R2D2, C3PO, Chewbacca, Dark Vador et un stormtroopers. Malheureusement, ces bouteilles ne sont pas commercialisées et ne sont pour l’instant qu’un concept créatif… Espérons que la marque se laissera convaincre par le buzz et commercialisera vite ses superbes bouteilles qui ne manqueront pas devenir collector!"
