I have nothing to say on the new Star Wars DVDs, as I haven’t seen them yet, as I haven’t got that kind of money lying around. Yes, really. By the time I see them, however, the smoke of fandom-at-large will have cleared, so I will say this now:
I like all the versions of the movies (I like the prequels too, but that’s another story for another time). I know what’s been changed from the Special Editions to the extra-crispy editions and it simply does not destroy my world. Yes, the loss of Yub Nub and Lapti Nek is tragic, but I still have my pre-THX remastered versions to watch and, being I’m easily entertained, the fact that the Rancor on the tape is of a completely different hue than his surroundings does not make me puke. Not as much as watching my old home videos. Boy, I could not aim a camera directly at anyone for more than .04 of a second back then.
Where was I? Oh, yeah. Red Leader dies. He never gets there. Not like Porkins. Porkins has been there. That is all that matters. Remember that.
That and I’m enjoying making my comic way more than talking about Star Wars.
