Jason Aaron and Kieron Gillen join forces for a Star Wars crossover event! From Marvel Comics This November, Darth Vader faces his biggest challenge yet: going solo against the entire Rebel fleet in Vader Down, a six-issue crossover event between the ongoing STAR WARS and DARTH VADER series. Writers Jason Aaron and Kieron Gillen will combine their might to crush an epic tale that rolls out over two issues each of their respective Star Wars titles, plus a special VADER DOWN one-shot to kick it off.

Wonder Woman (1976 - 1979)(ABC / CBS)

Image
Lynda Carter will be forever remembered for her four years on American prime time television as Amazonian goddess turned defender of freedom known as “Wonder Woman”. The half Native American/Hispanic actress with her tall buxom frame would be the perfect fit to play the character that first appeared in DC comics in the 1940s’. It would have stood to figure that the presence of the former Miss World-USA 1973, Carter, herself would have equaled television gold. Several factors including a network change and a change in local, time, and philosophy ultimately would work against the series. Oddly enough it was a mid-season replacement on rival NBC called “Diff’rent Strokes, which starred Gary Coleman, that forced the shows network, CBS, to rethink and re-shuffle their schedule. Wonder Woman and its star Lynda Carter ended being the odd ones out. Although the network had plans to bring the show back, Carter soon would star in a very popular Las Vegas club act and record her first album.
