  • Your comment on Star Wars: Clone Wars was a bit hmm, slanted but unless you've been watching it with what I would call, a lenient eye, it's actually not a bad show. It's technically balanced, though yes made for children it's a wonder. Compare the show TECHNICALLY to other 3D childrens' show and the difference is huge in quality and marketing. I know story wise it may be dull to the senses but in some way it captures Star Wars essence including feel and mood. Give it a chance and realize that Star Wars is no longer for those that grew up with it--it's now for a different generation as well.

  • Hey! Just listened to the show. There's an interview with Cecil "Plain Janes" Castelluci at Girl Wonder and she mentions that "sporty" Jane is Latina (because of the unibrow?) and "drama" Jane is Asian.
    People were a bit annoyed because neither the art or the story showed this diversity and the author seemed not very interested in being specific about race. Latina...Prican? Costa Rican? Dominican? Asian...Japanese? Mongolian? etc.
