Peter Mayhew Didn’t Become Chewbacca, Chewbacca Became Peter Mayhew

Star Wars creator George Lucas recently spoke about Peter Mayhew in wake of the Chewbacca actor’s passing. Lucas scrolls through many familiar anecdotes about Peter and Chewie you may have already heard through the years. But there is one touching aspect to all of this that was new to me. Chewbacca was originally intended to […]

Kyle’s Spoiler Review – Solo: A Star Wars Story

You can count me among those who rolled their eyes and moaned “Why?” when Solo: A Star Wars Story was announced. I mean…it’s still a Star Wars film, but at that point, I was convinced Han had been done to death (literally). I wasn’t outright against it, but I just thought there was no need […]

SWNN Review: Marvel’s Chewbacca #4

I’m lost here. I thought we were at the end of our Chewbacca interlude here, but there is still one more issue. Yoda said it best: “…and not short enough, it was”. The sighs and frequent headslaps were a plenty as I thumbed through this. In any series there are always hills and valleys, but […]

SWNN Review: Marvel’s Chewbacca #3

Gerry Duggan, this series’ writer, is really doing the best he can. I’m not going to guess whether or he came up with the story or someone else at Lucasfilm already had it in mind. Either way, I’m starting to warm up to the overall approach of what they are doing. Not every planet in […]

SWNN Review: Marvel’s Chewbacca #2

Today, I want to try and look at the glass half-full in the Chewbacca series. In case you missed last weeks review, yours truly was not crazy about the idea of a series based around a character who has no form of speech other than growling and roaring. I am still scratching my head as […]
