Ain't It Cool News (
Animation and Anime


Hey folks, Harry here - Well STAR WARS is 30 years and a day old... and this morning, for Moriarty's 40th Birthday - we have a present for him. The first trailer for the STAR WARS ANIMATED SERIES - TALES OF THE NEW REPUBLIC. Now - this is cool - but it also seems stiff and floaty - like none of the characters have any weight to them. That said - when Thrawn showed up - I jizzed like Forrest sitting with Jenny. It was AWESOME! Here check it out for yourself - and wish Moriarty a happy 40th!

Harry here - I'm about 99.999999% sure that this isn't official. If it is official - wow they need to work on it. If it is fan made - nice work, but you're still not all the way there... though I love the Thrawn - a lot.

Kevin Rubio sent me this - check it out and support the effort, if you see something you like. It's going to a great cause.

May 25, 2007 In celebration of the 30th Anniversary of STAR WARS, I am auctioning off a copy of my Dark Horse graphic novel Star Wars: Tag & Bink Were Here, on e-bay’s charity site – “Mission Fish”. It is the story of two rebel pilots who avoid capture on board Princess Leia’s ship, The Rebel Blockade Runner, by disguising themselves as Stormtroopers. This leads them on an adventure through the galaxy – crossing paths with every major character in the STAR WARS universe, and affecting the fate of all they encounter. The Tag & Bink series was named one of the top five STAR WARS comics of all time, by Wizards Magazine. They also included the graphic novel on their 2007 list of “must have comics for your collection”. In addition, The American Library Association named the T&BWH one of the best graphic novels of 2006. The copy that I am putting up for auction was made available by the generous contributions of Dark Horse Publishing and Lucasfilm Limited. It contains all four episodes in the series and has been signed by myself, the artist Lucas Marangon, my two brothers (on whom Tag & Bink are modeled after) and the creator of the STAR WARS UNIVERSE himself – George Lucas! A letter from LFL will be included in the sale of the graphic novel to attest to the signatures authenticity and all proceeds from this auction will go to NARSAD - The largest donor-supported organization in the world dedicated to supporting research on brain and behavior disorders. Their mission is to raise and distribute funding for the most promising psychiatric research in order to develop new preventative measures, better diagnoses and improved treatments for severe mental illnesses. This is a tax-deductible donation. Many Thanks, Kevin Rubio Here’s the link Click Here To Check It Out!!!
