Newsarama did an interview last Friday with comic writer Tom Taylor covering the recent release of Blood Ties: Boba Fett is Dead #1. They talk about Fett’s family, revenge, westerns, and I really liked the last answer Tom gave in the interview. It’s worth checking out.

It says it all in the title: “Boba Fett Is Dead”. How did it happen, and where does that lead this story?

Tom Taylor: For starters, the most infamous bounty hunter in the galaxy isn’t the most universally-loved guy. Boba Fett probably doesn’t receive a lot of holocards on Valentines Day, he probably has a quiet one with the Sarlacc pit.


If you leave that many bodies behind and cause that much pain, eventually you’re going to find someone with the money and resources to take revenge, and that’s exactly how our story begins, not with a whimper but with a bang… a lot of bangs. Well, not ‘bangs’… blasters don’t go bang. More ‘Choom!’ ‘Choom!’‘Fwwooom’ and ‘Agghhh, I needed that limb!’ ‘Rrrrrrrnnnn… Thud!’

Zombie Fett? Tom Taylor Talks with CNN

Tom Taylor is still making the rounds for Blood Ties: Boba Fett is Dead #1. CNN posted this interview earlier in the week covering Boba Fett,Tom and Daniel Logan’s Twitter war, the possibility of a zombie Fett, and a cameo by Vader.

What other Star Wars favorites, if any, will put in an appearance in this book and series?

Taylor: I can tell you that Darth Vader does make an appearance amidst a whole lot of fire and explosions. Artist Chris Scalf first came to comics prominence illustrating Vader, and it’s great to see him illustrating the Sith Lord again. There’s another smaller character, too, but I don’t want to spoil that one for the readers.

Jedi Journals Interview with Tom Taylor

Jedi Journals interviewed Tom Taylor for the release of his new Star Wars comic this week: Boba Fett is Dead #1. Tom talks about all his comics both Star Wars and non-Star Wars, his work process as a comic writer, and of course Darth Maul: Death Sentence.

You had the opportunity to write several characters from the films (Luke [at two points in his life], Vader, Boba & Jango, Maul); which of these characters is the most challenging to write? Is there one that you “get” the most? Who’s your favorite original character you’ve created?

Tom Taylor: Maul is probably the most challenging, simply because he’s undergone this incredible transformation since we first saw him many years ago. His character has been changed completely and it’s a little difficult to roll with that. Having said that, I’m having a great time writing him, and I think Darth Maul: Death Sentence is going to be a great read.

Big Shiny Robot Interviews Tom Taylor

Big Shiny Robot posted an interview today with comic writer Tom Taylor. The interview covers Blood Ties: Boba Fett is Dead which will be out this week.

BSR!: Over the years, there have been a lot of Fett stories that were more or less standalone adventures in the classic movie era, but your Blood Ties work brings in some elements never before seen: Boba’s relationship with those who helped shape him, like his father. How do you get into the mind of one of the galaxy’s notorious bounty hunters?

Tom Taylor: Boba Fett is a man of mystery but he IS a man. We’ve seen him as a child. We know how he felt about his father. We know that he does have a sense of honor. He’s not an impenetrable bad guy or an optimistic hero. He’s not black or white, he’s a character of grays. I look at his past, I look at his future, I look at all the hits his armor has taken and I just run with it.

I don’t think you can tell a story about Boba Fett though, I think the people around him are how you tell his story because, despite his rich history, he’s still pretty impenetrable… well, impenetrable until page 1 of Boba Fett is Dead. Then he’s not impenetrable at all. He’s all full of smoking holes.
