    Jedi Paper Tricks

    Fumiaki Kawahata’s amazing Origami Yoda is a very busy paper Jedi. There is usually a pretty steady stream of people discovering him and then tweeting their friends: “Someone make me one of these!” Or “Hard to fold this looks!” And every once in a while the stream turns into a flood, as happened a few weeks ago when George Takei posted a photo of one of @yoyoferro‘s versions of the Kawahata Yoda.

    Darth Wader

    Enjoy this quick cartoon based on a joke a little boy told me at San Diego Comic-Con. He was pretty proud of the pun and told me I should draw it (pushy little guy!). Katie Cook is a cartoonist and writer. She is kind of a big deal… to her cat. You can find her art and comics at katiecandraw.com, gronkcomic.com and find her mumbling like a raving lunatic at on Twitter @katiecandraw.

    What’s Inside Star Wars Insider #135

    The new Star Wars Insider is out on newsstands this week. As one of the folks who helps determine what’s inside each issue, I figured I’d best be blogging about issue #135. Figuring out where to start was easy – the cover – but I just realized this issue is more than just the videogame issue. Quite stealthily, it’s also the wedding issue. I’ll explain as I rattle off ten highlights of Star Wars Insider #135.

    Introducing… Jonathan Rinzler

    Editor’s Note: Even though it has been 35 years since Star Wars was released in theaters, and almost 30 since Return of the Jedi, we remain fascinated with untold stories and unseen assets that take us inside the production of the movies. Few people are more devoted to unearthing and telling these stories than Lucasfilm’s J. W. Rinzler. With an unprecedented level of access to the Lucasfilm archives, and to the cast and crew who helped create Star Wars, Rinzler has authored definitive accounts about The Making of Star Wars and The Making of Empire Strikes Back, and is now hard […]

    What is the Holocron?

    For those who have never heard of the Holocron Star Wars continuity database, it is a database I was hired to create back in January 2000 for Lucas Licensing’s Publishing department.

    Introducing… Leland Chee

    Editor’s Note: One of the biggest strengths of the Star Wars expanded universe – and something that sets it apart from similar franchises – is the fact that in its 30+ years of existence there’s never been a need for a reboot. Continuity has never become so out-of-whack that writers have been forced throw in the towel and start over and that’s largely due to the efforts of our newest contributor, Leland Chee – the Jocasta Nu of the real Jedi Archives. Leland is an easy contender for the “coolest job ever” award, in fact, his job is so cool […]

    New Star Wars Books and Comics Revealed at San Diego Comic-Con

    At San Diego Comic-Con, I got to host a pair of panels this Star Wars Day that looked ahead into some of the publishing projects for the remainder of 2012 and into 2013. They revealed, among other things, that the chronicles of Vader’s fatherhood will continue, a pop-up acklay is a real showstopper, the classic heroes return to comics in all new adventures with an old school feel, and the Big Three return to a landmark novel that could perhaps be called postapocalyptic (see what I did there?) …
