Frazetta's "A Princess of Mars" painting sells for $1.2 million at auction

A Princess of Mars (1970) is one of Frank Frazetta's most famous works. He painted it for the 1970 hardcover edition of Edgar Rice Burroughs' first John Carter of Mars novel.

It sold this week at Heritage Auctions for $1.2 million. "Frank Frazetta always felt that his art transcended genres," said Nadi...

An Ode to Souvenir Pint Glasses, the Most Nostalgic Form of Movie Fandom

As far back as I can remember, I always wanted to be a Goonie.  To me, being a Goonie was better than being President of the United States. Even before I first wandered into the theater for an after-school job, I knew I wanted to be a part of them. It was there I belonged. To me, it meant being somebody in a neighborhood full of nobodies. They weren’t like anyone else. They did whatever they wanted in the Goon Docks. They’d double-park their bicycles in front of Lower Columbia Bowl and nobod...

Get an Up Close Look at Leia’s Lightsaber from ‘Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker’

For many, Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker wasn’t exactly the thrilling conclusion to the Skywalker saga that fans had been waiting for. But if there’s one element of the finale that was satisfying even to those who disliked the movie overall, it was the flashback to Leia’s Jedi training with Luke Skywalker, where it was revealed that the Princess turned General had built her own lightsaber, making her a full-fledged Jedi. We only briefly see Leia’s lightsaber in the movie, but thankfully, a ne...
