I don’t really know of anyone who isn’t a geek that isn’t watching The Mandalorian right now. Episode three just dropped this morning and it’s awesome. We see that a Mandalorian can be tough and sensitive and that they have each other’s backs. For eight dollars a month, you really can’t beat the Disney Plus subscription and access to all of the Star Wars, Marvel and Disney properties.
If you aren’t watching it, why not? Let me know in the comments.

his book turned into a movie! One of his earlier works, Gil’s All Fright Diner, was bandied about but eventually passed on.
The synopsis from Simon and Schuster reads:
Constance Verity has been saving the world since she was seven, and she’s sick of it. She sets off on one last adventure to reset her destiny and become the one thing she’s never been: ordinary.
Ever since she was granted a wish at birth by her fairy godmother, Constance Verity has become the world’s great adventurer. She is a master of martial arts, a keen detective, and possesses a collection of strange artifacts. Constance has spent the past twenty-eight years saving the world, and she’s tired of it. All she wants is to work in an office and date a nice, normal guy. And she’s figured a way out. The only problem is that saving the world is Constance’s destiny. She’s great at it, and there are forces at work to make sure she stays in the job.
Then again, it’s also her destiny to have a glorious death.
Awkwafina will also be in the upcoming Marvel film Shang-Chi.
I’ve been aware of Lee and his work since my days with Borders back in 2009. Gil’s All Fright Diner was the first book that I read of his and I couldn’t put it down. Others followed, all great reads and he was cool enough to do a signing at our Grand Opening back in 2014 at A Galaxy Called Dallas Comics.
Here’s to seeing more of his works come to life on the big screen!
