Rather than tell you what you already know about Veronica Mars, let’s take a look at some comic books that reflect a lot of what intrigues me (and you) about our favorite teenage private eye.

Antiheroes can make some of the very juiciest protagonists … and if you ask me, the more terrible they are, the better. The kind that make you wonder if they really will step up and save the day, or let everything go to ruin.

It’s our first inkling of what a Star Wars movie release looks like in the Disney era. More than just action figures and posters, the blitz (dubbed Force Friday) features everything from bedding and housewares to remote control robots.

Of all the stuff, here’s what’s hotter than Tatooine cooler than Hoth really, really neat.
