C2E2 - Friday
First day of the convention was AWESOME! The crowds have been pretty good, and over-all, people who've stopped by have been really cool. Here's a couple of pictures from the convention.
While listening to the Star Wars Radio Dramas, I was struck by what is perhaps the most intense scene in A New Hope; Darth Vader's interrogation of Princess Leia Organa. The scene, which explicitely conveys the sick and twisted evil that had overtaken Anakin by that point, foreshadows some of the pivotal events that would leave us aghast in forthcoming episodes.
"'Hamburgers for One' is one of the centerpieces of the book," Kirkbride described of Stockton's contribution. "At 24 pages, it stands on its own and could be a one-shot. Frank has an amazing style, and this one surprised me after his very action-packed and humorous contribution to volume three, 'The Swordsman.' 'Hamburgers,' to me, is a great illustration of pacing. It's all very deliberate, and as a reader and writer myself, I learned a lot from it. A very subtle and interesting character piece with great visuals — Frank knocked it out of the park."
