The Praying Jewbacca

Jeff Carter is continuing his depiction of sci-fi and comic book characters in poses and frameworks of religious iconography. Here’s his latest, which he calls “The Praying Jewbacca” since it is based on Marc Chagall’s painting “The Praying Jew.” It is good to see that he is expanding to include other religious traditions, since the images [Read More...]

Expressions of Vader

A colleague has this shirt, and I liked it so much I had to share the image from it. If you’re looking for his expression when romantically dejected, then click here… [Read more...]

Mason uses Doctor Who to reflect [Read More...]

Longing for Magic and Miracle (Is Science Fiction Simply Fantasy?)

A question to which I keep returning is whether science fiction is fundamentally different than fantasy. Both have worlds very different than our own, battles between good and evil, monsters, heroes, and usually even energy weapons of some sort.

Darth Vader’s New Voice

There has been a lot of discussion of George Lucas’ alterations to the classic Star Wars films for their Blu-Ray release. This parody is the one that I think is the funniest: If nothing else, watching the parody will make you feel better about what George Lucas actually did. [Read more...]
