Catching up on some Star Wars interviews we missed, there’s a few with comic writer John Ostrander covering his new series Agent of the Empire. John reveals the action will kick off in the Corporate Sector and provides some general info on the feel of the series in an interview with Nerd World News. In another interview with Angry Koala Gear, John covers some broader ground with his influences, his favorite comics, his favorite Star Wars character, and he touches on Agent of the Empire and Dawn of the Jedi. Although the interview warns of spoilers, there weren’t any to be wary of. There is one last interview John did with TORSyndicate in the form of a podcast which you can listen to here. The podcast interview covers a lot of territory, but doesn’t delve into Agent of the Empire too much.
Agent of the Empire: Iron Eclipse #1 will be released on December 14.
Star Wars author Drew Karpyshyn also did a podcast interview recently with Fictional Frontiers. The interview focuses on Drew’s latest novel The Old Republic: Revan and reveals some interesting things. First off Drew revealed that Lord Scourge will be available as a companion character for some players in Star Wars: The Old Republic. He also touched on how he avoided internal monologues in Revan in order to focus on telling the story through the action of the characters, which was something that I had wondered upon when reading the novel. Through the course of the interview, some out-of-universe connections were discussed and I found Drew’s mention of Silence of the Lambs to be an insightful one. Drew also discussed Mandalorians and his own interest in writing more Revan stories. Fair warning, the interview does contain some spoilers. You can listen to it here.
Fictional Frontiers also did an interview with Star Wars author Paul S. Kemp covering his novel Riptide (I know, a bit late, but better late than never). This was a pretty fun interview that stayed spoiler free. I especially loved the comments Paul had on the cover. You can listen to the interview here.
The Fictional Frontiers interviews are nice fifteen minute podcasts, however the TORSyndicate interview is much longer running a little over a half hour for the Ostrander portion (which is at the beginning).
