    AOTC is catching up the Mass Media attention a lot so there gonna be lots of magazines publishing the SW Story. So let us post all local sightings here, okiday?

    TEEN Magazine May Issue got a page on AOTC and a center fold poster of Hayden labelled as Anakin Skywalker (he's in normal clothes).

    And an article uses Anakin and Padme's "Frobidden Love" as an example but unfortunately, they mislabelled Padme Amidala Naberries as Princess Amidala. :(

    I'm a good Spiderman fan too, but would like to see some AOTC

    DE - These 'ignorant' magazines always misspell names wrongly, or they give wrong information. Very irritating. :mad:

    Nope still waiting, they r still having the Zoe Tay photo one, but i check out the website (http://www.time.com/time/covers/1101020429/) and they appear to report quite a lot on AOTC so those who dont want to get spoilers better keep the magazines first :)

    Star Wars is also in the kid's central magazine. Just saw it today but i guess its just a small section because the front cover is our friendly neighbourhood "spider-man".

    Attention everyone..

    today (29-4) I saw the TIME mag with Yoda on the cover, at Orchard. I didn't buy it cos my family subscribes and I still haven't received it in the mail.

    for the others, go get them! :D

    I got my copy of TIME magazine with Yoda on the cover today from Borders.

    The main text itself can be read online, but there were a number of sidebar columns that I think can only be found in the hard copy.

    My fav line from the article: "All democracies finally turn into dictatorships". And it's a GL quote, no less!

    If the OT had mythological underpinnings, the PT certainly is beginning to exhibit underpinnings of political depth. The political subtext definitely raises AOTC above the level of mere entertainment.

    And to think that 3 years ago the same TIME reviewer gave TPM such a negative review! I still have the magazine.

    I gotten TIME Magazine today from a shop at AMK. :) Pity it was $7 per magazine or I will had buy more (heehee, you all should see how my SW Insider with Wesell & Jargo Cover looks like now!).

    Also saw the new issue of Newsweek but not sure if it got the SW article like said in the first post here. Anyone can verify this? :D

    Just bought a magazine "Galaxie", published in Malaysia. Their May cover is Hayden Christensen. S$2. The inside story and pictures are not new. But 2 dollars is ok to just buy a cover. Have anyone seen it?
