Morning Roundup: Princess Leia is the Best Star Pilot in the Galaxy

Princess Leia will be taking to the skies as an X-Wing pilot in a new Star Wars comic book. We saw this wonderful image on The Mary Sue and were shocked that it wasn’t the cover of this new series, but instead comes from artist Adam Hughes (responsible for the awesome cover for last year’s Batgirl #1) In anycase, we think it’s about the most inspiring thing we’ve seen in ages.

The rest of your daily offsite links will inspire you, catch up on nerd news and more.

Highlights Include:

  1. News from SDCC, including The Hobbit and Elysium
  2. First shot of Bond’s new “Q”
  3. A real robot, who can really skip stones.


Stubby the Rocket is the mascot of Tor.com. Stubby knows a few maneuvers.

Actually, that's a Y-Wing (in the picture here. There's a page on the Mary Sue that shows Leia flying crashing an X-Wing).

(She has canonically flown Y-Wings before, in "Splinter of the Mind's Eye," where she apparently had to ferry herself around.)

The actor playing the new Q is actually named Ben Whishaw.

Also, the phone number in the Bill Murray flyer goes to the Westboro Baptist Church.
