Knights Archive spotted a comment made by author Christie Golden over on Facebook regarding the Sword of the Jedi series. The trilogy was announced back at Star Wars Celebration VI and Christie Golden was set to be the author.

“The very talented Shea Standefer wearing the art that was used to announce my Jaina Solo trilogy which may or may not happen (don’t know yet.) I think I better get one of these shirts…” -Christie Golden

So, we can now official add Sword of the Jedi to the unknown pile along with Kemp’s mysterious duology. Hopefully will get some more news early next year on what we can expect in the way of new Star Wars books, especially as the script for Episode VII is completed.

TFN Interview with ‘The Star Wars’ artist Mike Mayhew

TheForce.Net has an interview with Mike Mayhew, the artist behind Dark Horse Comics eight issue mini-series The Star Wars.

You’re responsible for the majority of the work that goes into designing the entirety of this alternate Star Wars galaxy. What does that process look like?

Well, that was something that was so daunting. And, the book was basically solicited before I came on, so any “extra” time I took to take the care and attention one would imagine that this project might need from a design standpoint was not a luxury. Pages were needed from day one. So, in essence, I needed to design everything, while doing penciling and inking chores on a monthly book. It would be like George designing Star Wars while he filmed it with the actors.

To make matters worse, I came on the book and agreed to a schedule, under the instructions that an “army” of artists was designing everything for me! This fell flat quickly for several reasons, some beyond anyone’s control, and because I actually wanted to control the design process, mainly so I wasn’t “stuck” drawing something that was difficult for me.
