What the new Star Wars trilogy means for the new generation.

My Very Own Nerdvana

There are very few moments in life where people can remember where they were, who they were with and even little moments like the weather and the food you ate. If you ask any die-hard fan of Star Wars, they would be able to describe the day they saw the first film from a galaxy far, far away.


Talk to any fan, really, and they would be able to tell you what it was that got them in to Star Wars, whether it was a particular film, TV show or a book.

The Makers Of ‘Bayonetta’ And ‘Transformers: Devastation’ Are Working On A ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’ Game



Once upon a time, Ninja Turtles games used to kick some serious shell, but unfortunately those days are long past. The last truly great Turtles game was probably 1992’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Turtles in Time, with most games since then being fairly standard licensed schlock.

It’s the first of the month, we’re looking at the demographics of people who “like” comics on Facebook. This data is compiled using demographic data from Facebook, and is limited to the United States. This is not individuals who purchase comics, this is the potential audience and possibly the general breakdown of comic fans.
