Lucasfilm's new feature-length cartoon, Star Wars: The Clone Wars, has a light heart and a spring in its step. It's not exactly thrilling, and it doesn't cover much new ground. But young audiences will lap it up like ice cream, and its good humor and faith in the Force will put adults in a Saturday-morning frame of mind even at midnight showings. Ever since Luke asked Obi-Wan, "You fought in the Clone Wars?" in Star Wars: A New Hope, fanboys (and, let's face it, fangirls too) have wondered what the cataclysm would look like on the big screen.

It's . . .250 channels!Yes, it's satellite TV, strange visitor above our own planet, with powers that far outstrip those of ordinary cable.It's a tube-lover's dream, that's for sure, as I discovered during my first wander through the back roads of the sky. Recently, with a satellite descrambler remote in my hands for the first time (at my sister's house in the cable-less countryside of rural Michigan), I sat down to take a quick look -- and ended up glued to the sofa.

Randy Myers might technically be in the business of selling books, but he says he doesn't fret the impact the Internet or e-readers is having on the business, recently opening his second Collector's Corner comic book shop in February in Harford County. “People want to hold [comics] in their hand,” Myers said. “It's the tactile nature of the comic book that gives it more of a chance at surviving the digital age. It's not just the words, but it's the illustrations.” The shop prides itself on its selection of popular titles, such as the widely known series-turned-hit-TV-show “The Walking Dead,” the classic DC and Marvel Comics brands and small stapled comics from obscure indie brands such as Microcosm Publishing.

Which came first: Puffy AmiYumi the J-Pop duo? Or Puffy AmiYumi the manic cartoon characters who quibble and reconcile and surf and rock around the world?

With its catchy blend of bubble gum/surfer/punk-lite rock, the singing duo of Ami Onuki and Yumi Yoshimura has held the attention of Japan's trend-driven pop fans from their first recording, True Asia, in 1996.
