The Wisconsin State Journal posted an interview with Star Wars author and comic writer John Jackson Miller that covers his upcoming novel Lost Tribe of the Sith: The Collected Stories, as well as some general sci-fi stuff.
Is there one character from “Star Wars” that you identify with?
JJM: From the movies? I always liked Lando. When I did the “Knights of the Old Republic” comic series, the two main characters were a young Jedi student accused of a crime he didn’t commit and this little alien con artist guy who involves him in all sorts of swindles. That allowed us to reimagine “Star Wars” as like the movie “The Sting.” I guess I can trace that swindler character back to Han Solo and Lando Calrissian being shady types who end up becoming heroes in spite of themselves.
