Star Wars #10 Written by Brian Wood Art by Carlos D'anda, Gabe Eltaeb Cover by Hugh Fleming Dark Horse Comics Release Date: October 09, 2013 Cover Price: $2.99 Ten issues in and Brian Wood’s Star Wars persists in delivering the goods, and while this issue comes across as more of an effort to position our characters for the events of the next chapters, it was still a delight to read, with some beautiful artwork to complement the writing. On an undercover mission, Luke Skywalker and Wedge Antilles are hidden aboard an Imperial Star Destroyer – one tracking down the location of the Rebel Fleet. Whilst awaiting their inevitable upcoming battle, the two share a private moment that is both distant yet touching, highlighting the developing friendship between them. It is during this moment the moniker “Rogue Squadron” is raised, adding an origin element to the famous X-Wing squadron. [...]

Love a cassette? You might well fancy this Mixed Tape wallpaper your walls. Not to be confused with the similarly-themed Mixed Tapes paper we have featured (which seems to use a smaller cassette patterm), this one is available at Rebel Walls and again uses the humble 'tape' imagery and turns it into a bold statement for your walls. As you can see, it's quite a statement too, with a variety of different cassettes making up a sheet of the paper.The kind of thing that would work on a feature wall rather than for a full room, it costs £33 per square metre.Find out more at the Rebel Walls website

The 16-second teaser for Disney's upcoming animated TV series, Star Wars Rebels, doesn't reveal much, but it does paint a basic plot outline for the series. As a Star Destroyer passes overhead — the same opening from the original Star Wars movie, just without the Rebel blockade runner — a youthful voice says, "To battle the Empire, a Rebel Alliance will form, the Jedi will rise, and you will know the power of the Force." See also: Star Wars Rebels! Animated TV Show to Hit Disney in 2014 The show takes place at some point between Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith and Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope, a span of 19 years. The "Jedi will rise" part is something of a surprise, since the Jedi were decimated at the end of Episode III, and we are told in Episode IV that they are all but extinct.

A first teaser has debuted online for Star Wars: Rebels, giving us the briefest taste of what to expect from the forthcoming animated series. Set between the events of the prequel and original trilogies, the new series will focus upon the first stirrings of the Rebel alliance and its early skirmishes with the Empire. "To battle the Empire, a rebel alliance will form, the Jedi will rise, and you will know the power of the Force," booms the voiceover in this 14-second trailer, as that theme tune supplies the goosebumps… Take a look below: Taking that annoyingly "woah dude" narration style out of the equation, this one should keep fans occupied until J.J. Abrams gets the next movie installment into cinemas. Featuring voice work from the likes of David Oyelowo and Freddie Prinze Jr., Star Wars: Rebels is expected to arrive on US screens in the third quarter of 2014, with a UK air date to be confirmed.

“I was pissing my shorts having rich nigga thoughts Wish I had a pistol before all the friends I done fought Over night I seen a nigga go get a Carrera Two weeks later I had to be that boy pallbearer Young king bury me inside a glass casket Windex wipe me down for the life after Crack dealer living like a hoop star Black marble, white walls in my new spot Four chains, big studs, a nigga too fly Top down, tank top, I think I’m 2Pac So I’m labeled the rebel, nigga get on my level We were born to be kings, only major league teams Chasing my paper, couldn’t fathom my wealth Built a school in Ethiopia, should enroll in myself God body and mind, food for the soul When you feeding on hate, you empty, my nigga, it shows Follow the codes, ain’t no love for these hoes If you slip and you fall I got you my nigga, hold on If you right or you wrong, if you riding come on By the end of this song, can’t be hiding for long I seen children get slaughtered, niggas’ grandmothers assaulted Throw a gang sign, dare you do something about it Fuck copping them foams, when you copping the home Cop a kilo and have them people on top of your home…” How many cigs Pusha’s My Name Is My Name ultimately ends up with remains to be seen. One thing for sure, it is pretty damn good album. “King Push” is some next level shit. Words can’t explain the rush that comes with listening to that song at extremely loud volumes. And we’ve already basically declared “Nosetalgia” one of the songs that will be featured on our year-end roundup of 2013′s best songs. Having noted that, Rick Ross’ feature on the melodic “Hold On” ranks as a definite high point from the LP. For all the flack The Fat Man catches – some of which deservedly so – he tends to deliver moments on occasion, especially alongside G.O.O.D. artists, that show just how capable of a MC he can be. Between this, “Millions” and 2009′s “I’m Good (Remix),” Ross and Pusha T’s chemistry is wildly underrated.
