Hey there my friends, I just wanted to start the day early with a rousing “Happy Star Wars Day” to you all or to use its much better sounding phrase “May The 4th Be With You!!!”; I have to tell you that I still think that the phrase is a stroke of Geek Genius. Now it’s without question that the “Star Wars” franchise is one of the most popular in all Pop Culture history and I’ve certainly had my hands full as a media in terms of sharing news about films, television shows, comic books and toys and collectibles. If you don’t believe me, just peruse our own “Pop Culture” category since its all there. Over the last few days we’ve learned of some awesome happenings and I’ll link you to them in the highlighted text. There is a special Virtual Event by the ReedPOP folks, an all-day streaming of the nine films in the “Skywalker Saga” on Disney+ and a brand-new Marvel Comics digital edition for a hot character known as Doctor Aphra.
That’s all I have to add about this one but I hope you will manage to have a good day despite what is going on around us in the world at the moment. Be safe, be mindful and stay healthy. Remember, the Force will be with you….Always…. Until we meet again.
The Press Release:
Escape to a galaxy far far away with the ultimate May the 4th Be With You and Revenge of the 5th virtual Star Wars fan experience from Reedpop, the world’s largest producer of pop culture events. Fans of the cultural phenomenon around the world will be able to virtually unite and join events, including talent and creator interviews, live tweeting movies and shows, trivia, quizzes, giveaways and more!
A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away – a great adventure took place…This adventure also gave birth to one of the biggest and most successful financial licenses known to mankind and I am speaking of none other than the mighty juggernaut that is “Star Wars” which came to us from the creative mind of George Lucas. Since that bygone year of 1977, the original film has spawned numerous sequels and prequels, offered the world hundreds and hundreds of action figures and then there are the comic books. Marvel Comics took over the license a few years ago and has been delivering some great stuff since and with this “May The 4th Be With You” day are adding a whole batch of these titles to their “True Believers” line which we have spoken highly about in the past on the website. These titles are the exact same issue that was previously on the stands and sell for the incredible savings of $1. They are the perfect way to get a new reader into comic books and make a perfect present. Check out the covers for these issues and which ones will be coming out this month. Make sure to let your retailer know to save you these for your monthly pull list because at this price they most certainly will sell out fast. Here we go.
