Jedi Journals Interviews Randy Stradley

Jedi Journals April podcast include some really cool stuff including a very nice interview with Dark Horse Comics editor and writer Randy Stradley. Randy mentioned that artist Doug Wheatley is currently finishing off issue #2 of Dark Times: A Spark Remains. He also touched on the recently announced The Star Wars. I thought it was cool to heard that George Lucas is giving the okay on the costume designs for the characters. In less exciting news regarding Agent of the Empire, “there are no plans for anymore.”

In better news, Randy said that while Dark Horse has no plans to reveal when their contract with Star Wars ends, they do have comics planned will into 2014. Randy also talked about how he got started in comics with the original Marvel Star Wars series, and his use of pseudonames over the years. It’s definitely worth listening to (the interview starts at 00:13:50 if you want to skip right to it).

The Weekly Crisis Interviews John Ostrander

The Weekly Crisis posted an interview with comic writer John Ostrander. The interview covers the Agent of the Empire series, Dawn of the Jedi, Legacy and more. I particularly liked John’s comments about forcesabers.

“For example, it was a given that the hyperspace drive that later ships – such as the Millennium Falcon – used originated with the Rakatan hyperdrive that used the Force as a power source. Extrapolating from that, we asked how lightsabers were developed and came up with Rakatan “forcesabers” which were forerunners in terms of the overall technology but used the Force itself as a power source. We thought that since a forcesaber would be an aggressive weapon, it would pull on the dark side as its power source. All of which seemed to make sense to LFL as well as us.” -John Ostrander

A young boy—the heir to the title of Count Dooku—is kidnapped, and it’s Jahan Cross to the rescue! When the kidnapper turns out to be a sexy female spy with whom Cross has worked before, and when her motives turn out to have the boy’s welfare at heart, Cross is faced with a decision: should he disobey his own orders from the Empire? But first there’s a little matter of breaking out of a supposedly inescapable prison . . .

The three young Je’daii who first encountered Xesh are teamed with Je’daii Masters to locate the prisoners and return them to Bogan . . . and prevent them from bringing about the mad vision that Lok has obsessively held to during his years of banishment . . .
