Issue two, out feb 13, cover by Alex Ross
I didn’t have to look up a single thing to write this exchange, for I am more of a Star Wars nerd than I even realized:
As announced earlier today, I’m writing an ongoing Star Wars book for Dark Horse. Not just any Star Wars book, this will be called “Star Wars”, and will be set in the original trilogy, using the classic characters, and will pretend like its 1977 and no other films were every made or books ever written aside from “A New Hope”. Carlos D’Anda is on art, Gabe Eltaeb on colors, and Alex Ross on covers.
There will be more info tomorrow and an interview, but I bet this strikes people as an odd move. Maybe not? But LucasFilm asked for me personally, and I felt it too irresistible a job to pass up. I’m three scripts into it and having fun. The book launches in Dec or January. Oh yeah, Leia’s an X-Wing pilot.
More info and some art here.
