The Incredibles on Blu-Ray DVD
THE INCREDIBLES follows the adventures of a family of former superheroes who are rediscovering the true source of their powers—in one another. Once one of the world’s top masked  crime fighters, Bob Parr (a.k.a. Mr. Incredible) fought evil and saved lives on a daily basis. But 15 years  later, he and his wife Helen (the former Elastigirl) have been forced to take on civilian identities and  retreat to the suburbs. Today they, and all superheroes, live as mere mortals. Bob and Helen lead all- too-ordinary lives with their children, Violet and Dashiell “Dash” Parr, who go out of their way to  appear “normal,” and new baby Jack-Jack As a clock-punching insurance man, the only thing Bob  fights these days is boredom and a bulging waistline. Itching for action, the sidelined superhero gets his  chance when a mysterious communication summons him to a remote island for a top-secret  assignment. Now, with the fate of the world hanging in the balance, the family must come together and  once again find the fantastic in their family life.

Tag and Bink are Dead
Tag and Bink are the main characters in a series of comic books spoofing Star Wars. Tag is from the planet Corellia and Bink is from Alderaan. The two first meet when they are found to have Force potential. The comics illustrate how these two Jedi in training haphazardly cause all the pivotal events in the Star Wars universe. Like other Star Wars comics, Tag and Bink is published by Dark Horse Comics.

    There is a Tag & Bink where they go through Return of the Jedi. It’s called Return of Tag & Bink. It’s in the TPB.

    The restraint Rodrigo is talking about when discussing Tag and Bink are Dead, is what is missing from every Star Wars novel I have ever read. I dislike all of the novels, and I really tried to like them, because the novels attempt to cram ever character possible into them and fail to sell me on the characterizations.

    I would like to give this book a try. This same, floating in the background story, worked well for Lion King 1 and 1/2.

    I like the Rosencrantz and Guildernstern concept… in part because I acted in a production of R&G are Dead in High School. So as a fan of both Star Wars and R&G I’ll definitely order or pick this up when I head over to the LCS next.

    If I recall correctly, by the time of the Galactic Civil War, enough clones have been killed that the Stormtroopers are both Imperial Navy recruits and what is left of the original clone army.
