Weekly Webcomic Wrapup hopes the Force will be with you

S. Prell, @SamPrell

Regular readers will know we here at Joystiq love our puns. Thus, we heartily endorse and support the holiday that is May The Fourth - a day that not only celebrates one of pop culture's greatest nerdy creations, but is also a fine play on words on its own! On top of those reasons, I personally hold a deep love for Star Wars, so it's a win-win-win for me.

My love for George Lucas' universe is vast and varied - I own prop replicas, movie stills, video games, board games, roleplaying games, comics and novels, and when existing materials didn't tell the stories I wanted to hear, I wrote my own fanfics. One year while in college, I dressed up as a Sith for Halloween and went to class only to find my professor dressed as a Jedi. We walked into the classroom at the same time, saw what the other was wearing, paused, then promptly drew our lightsabers and dueled before class started. And yet, despite all of the above, I'm sure someone else's love of the franchise dwarfs even my own. Maybe that's you?

What fond memories do you have of Star Wars? Do you celebrate May The Fourth? Tell some stories that show your love. Alternatively, if you're not a fan of Star Wars, tell us why and what you do enjoy! After you vote for this week's webcomic, of course.
