CBR Interview Rinzler Plus Art From #0 Issue

CBR has a nice interview with J.W. Rinzler covering The Star Wars. He made some interesting comments…

“This is the raw form and it’s just a fun adventure, a fun romp — the characters develop but it’s very organic — so it’s not even really clear who the central character is until you get to the fifth and sixth issue.” -J.W. Rinzler

“But there’s more story left than Annikin’s story. The Wookiees are going to come into it too. George never slows down his inventiveness so I think the story keeps getting better and better. What I like about “The Star Wars” #4 is that you get a “Dirty Dozen” team assembled and now they’re going off on their main adventure, which is to get to the princess to safety. And it’s kind of started already but it’s also basically a romance between Annikin and Leia while Annikin tries to succeed in his mission.” -J.W. Rinzler

“You’re going to see a bunch of Wookiees.” -J.W. Rinzler

“[General Luke Skywalker] is the mentor to Annikin, definitely. But he’s also more like Patton. “I don’t care who is up against me, I have a very short temper and I am going to cut off heads, legs, whatever it takes. I will even cut people in half.” Jedi in “The Star Wars” are take-no-prisoners. They’re almost like samurai. Once they take out their lightsabers, they are lethal. They’re not going to put it back in the sheath because a few people are missing arms, legs and heads.” -J.W. Rinzler

Dark Horse Comics have released their solicitations for March 2014. Here is the Star Wars rundown. One thing that caught my interest is the new art team on Star Wars #15. Stéphane Créty and Julien Hugonnard-Bert both worked on Agent of the Empire: Iron Eclipse, which included a cameo by Han Solo. It’ll be interesting to see how their art style will look for the other classic characters.

What happens when you combine the writer of Darth Vader and the Ninth Assassin with the artist from Dark Times: Fire Carrier? You get a great looking comic and an intriguing story that reinforces the mythos of Darth Vader and sets forth a ex-clone soldier on a dangerous path of revenge against the Jedi.

A Spark Remains ends with issue #5 and the big showdown is ready. While we keep the review spoiler free, fans will want to check out the issue to see who lives and who dies. But the real question is the payoff. For a five issue arc all leading up to a climatic confrontation with Vader, can they pull it off when we all know Vader will be the one who survives?
