George Lucas/was blinded by ego and fame and greed/on his giant ranch in Marin County/where all the people who don’t vaccinate their kids live/when he sold Star Wars to Disney/who hired Sith Lord J.J. Abrams to reboot yet another beloved franchise based on explosions and CGI/where sad farewells were said.

Wayne Douglas Barlowe wrote and illustrated the influential Barlowe’s Guide to Extraterrestrials (1979), which lots of you remember and probably still have.

    Yep, still have it, and it’s a classic. Beautifully illustrated. I also had a Popeye one that somehow got away from me over time!
