It is probably safe to say my love for comic books is only rivaled by my love for Star Wars. I primarily collect only comic books. My weekly books are nominal compared to my CGC graded comic book purchases. I stopped collecting Star Wars action figures a few years ago. Space grew limited and the prices of action figures started to jump too high. I still look for bargains, or that one Star Wars item that I must have, and when I heard the Blue-Ray discs would be released in September, well let’s just say I plan on having a marathon. Who needs work or sleep for a day?
I was at work when I decided to check my e-mail, something I am not supposed to do, but it was slow. I looked at the e-mails from my fellow contributors, from e-bay letting me know an auction on a comic book I wanted was ending, some spam, and a few Facebook notifications. One was from StarWars.com. I tried reading it on my phone but the only thing it really said was “All will be revealed May 4th” they also had a blue-ray disc insignia. Are they pushing up the release for the Blue-Ray’s? Is that live action show they were talking about coming out? Is another movie in the works along the lines of “Vector Prime”? I don’t know. Could I get out of work early and go home to jump online and try to find out more?
When I finally got home I turned my computer on, made some coffee and jumped online. I accessed my e-mail and hit the link to the Star Wars website and the only thing I saw was a clock ticking down, but ticking down to what? It looks like I will just have to wait until May 4th and wonder if I will be insane enough to watch the final minutes give way to whatever news they wish to reveal. Or, should I just wait for another e-mail and read what everyone will know May 4th 2011?
Thanks for reading
