Rowena Cory Daniells has an interview with another Star Wars writer, this time the incredibly talented comic writer Tom Taylor. There is also the opportunity to win a free copy of Tom’s graphic novel The Deep. The interview covers a range of topics from Tom’s good old days in school to Star Wars canon, comedy, and his other projects.

Q: Rombies (written by Tom Taylor, illustrated by Skye Ogden, Colours by Mikiko Ponczeck) is a historical paranormal tale set in ancient Rome. What inspired you to set a story in ancient Rome? Have you always been fascinated by its history?

Skye Ogden inspired me. Honestly, this was originally his idea. I just ran with it, and I’m very glad I did. Gestalt actually asked me to write this very early on in our working relationship and I said no. I’m not a massive horror fan and I wasn’t sure this was the project for me. The night after I said no, I had a dream about Gladiators fighting zombie lions beneath the Coliseum. I called them the very next morning to say yes. I wanted to see Zombie Lions come to un-life. We made that happen. Where we plan to go next is epic.

I highly recommend checking this interview out. It includes some pretty fun humor, and the part that covered The Example was enough to convince me to go out and buy it. Click here to read the full interview and for a chance to win The Deep.
