The Way We Were: Star Wars Edition

For A More Civilized Age

Bobbie Wygant’s Empire Strikes Back Special from Atombomb.tv on Vimeo.

Journey back with us to days of yore, when Mark Hamill thought there was going to be a Star Wars prequel with an eight-year-old Luke, Harrison Ford thought he wouldn’t have to appear in Return of the Jedi, and you could be casually racist about Billy Dee Williams and get away with it while everybody was instead really upset about The Empire Strikes Back having a cliffhanger ending.

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.
