  1. This is awesome stuff for this months collection. Would really like to see some fan-made collection and reviews especially for latest star wars episodes.

      Hello! If by episodes you mean the movies, sorry, but that’s not my focus here. My focus is on the animated shows, and I’ve included plenty of fan-made content in relation to the animated shows. Hope that cleared things up.

  2. What a wonderful collection of information, articles and fan contributions!

  3. Thanks so much for including some of our pieces in this roundup, Johna!! :)
