EUCantina posted an interview yesterday with Random House Art Director Scott Biel. We’ve seen Scott’s name mentioned recently with the cover designs for Scourge, Mercy Kill, Choices of One and The Essential Reader’s Companion.
Why did X-wing: Mercy Kill undergo a cover revision?
Scott Biel: For Mercy Kill, we looked at what was originally the final and felt it looked dated. We wanted the design to harken back to the old Bantam X-wing novels but it was missing the mark. While discussing redesigning the cover we saw these great posters for Star Wars done by Olly Moss. I used this as inspiration for the cover and I’m very happy with the final product.
