Greenpeace’s Star Wars Ad Leaves Us Conflicted, Shamed

For A More Civilized Age

Hey! It’s another tiny Vader commercial! *GASP* And there are tiny Jedi! And droids! And walking carpets. Oooh, and they’re all going to fight Vader and he’s… going to activate the Death Star… and kill everyone. Because he represents anti-environmentalism. Because he is the bad guy. And we should take care of our planet. And planet carers join the Rebels… *sigh*

Greenpeace: lures you in with adorable Star Wars kids, and then makes you feel feelings.

Susana Polo thought she'd get her Creative Writing degree from Oberlin, work a crap job, and fake it until she made it into comics. Instead she stumbled into a great job: founding and running this very website (she's Editor at Large now, very fancy). She's spoken at events like Geek Girl Con, New York Comic Con, and Comic Book City Con, wants to get a Batwoman tattoo and write a graphic novel, and one of her canine teeth is in backwards.
