Look, It’s Wired’s “Star Wars” Issue, Featuring Chris Hardwick

You might, just might, want to pick up the new issue of Wired magazine, March 2013, seeing as how the cover features none other than our very own Chris Hardwick with a bevy of Star Wars characters. See?:


The key article in the issue is “74 Things Every Great Star Wars Movie Needs,” and it is epic — in fact, it’s a collection of short articles and lists, kicking off with a longer piece in which Chris discusses the saga in general and why it matters, and you can read that by clicking here. It’s great, and I’m not just saying that because he’s my boss. No, you have to give major props to any article that name checks Leia Organa, Frank Stallone, R5-D4, Tiffany, and our own Nerdist Industries. Other pieces in the article come from people like Damon Lindelof, Reggie Watts, Carlton Cuse, Jane Espenson, Jake Tapper, Rian Johnson, and several more fine writers. You can read it all here, but you should buy the print version, too, which has plenty more Star Wars goodness for you. Oh, you want it on a tablet? Click here. Buy both.

Here’s a video about the making of that cover:
