The Daily Waffle: Episode Thirty Two


NEW "FEMALE CENTRIC" STAR WARS SERIES IN DEVELOPMENT

I always wonder why studios use terms like "female centric" in press releases because it doesn't really mean anything. Would you describe The Mandolorian as "male centric"?

Anyway. More Star Wars, which we're always minded to regard as a good thing. Leslye Headland, the creative brain behind the hit Netflix series Russian Doll is at the helm, and that's pretty much all we know - Lucasfilm/Disney are being unsurprisingly silent about any details of characters or plot, which allows the fan community to have some fun discussing (OK, it's Star Wars fandom, so arguing) which corners of the Star Wars Universe would be best explored.

THE DAY COMICS GREW UP

This was a British documentary about comic books, the writers and artists, from 1988 or '89, that was shown on the Australian ABC network back in mid-1990. Back in the late eighties the comics community was obsessed with being seen as "serous and grown-up". I remember watching this as a teenager, and it'snow an interesting look back at a very different time.

The documentary looks at British and American comics, and touches on Manga, and the then relatively new subject of video games. There's also a look at the convention scene and there are interviews with some of the creators [some of whom have since passed away], such as Archie Goodwin, Alan Moore, Jim Baikie, John Byrne, Tom Veitch, Cam Kennedy, and others.
