We’re Thankful For …..Movies!

Each and every day of this coming week, we’re going to be telling you what we’re thankful for! We work hard every day to bring you geeky reviews and as we do that, we find our favorites…the ones we are truly thankful for coming across our desks, in our inboxes, at the theatres and everywhere that geeky things tend to sneak into our lives.

Each day will have a different theme and hopefully will introduce you to some awesome that you might have missed as well as us showing our thanks for the amazing creators that are out there.

The Sky Book Three contains Amano’s sketches and

depicting characters such as Zidane Tribal, Garnet Til Alexandros XVII,

unreleased pen-and-ink sketches of the Gunblade, and designs for the gemlike
logo of Final Fantasy IX.

The first two books of the re-release being as wonderful
as I expected, the anticipation for the third and final was certainly
huge.  Not only was this because of
getting to enjoy another Final Fantasy book, but it was the one including the
games from the series that have stuck with me most to this day...

Having previously missed out on the original release,
