ForceCast: Special CEII Artist Interviews Episode one includes some really nice interviews with Star Wars Celebration Europe II artists Joe Corroney, Hugh Fleming and Lin Zy. All three artists are interviewed by fellow artist Spencer Brinkerhoff III. Definitely worth listening to.

Special CEII Artist Interviews Episode two covers Star Wars artists Brian Rood, Chris Trevas and Jerry Vanderstelt. I’m really enjoying these special interview episodes. Spencer does a great job and I’m looking forward to listening to more.

Full of Sith: The Story of Star Wars Special Release episode is something fans may or may not want to skip. Mike gives a brief intro and then plays The Story of Star Wars (which was a record released in 1977) in its entirety. It’s basically the audio for A New Hope but with narration so listeners can follow along with the action. Definitely cool to have it out there if you ever want to give it a listen.

Darth Maul: Death Sentence comes to a close today with Death Sentence #4.

As more Jedi—Obi-Wan included!—and clone trooper reinforcements arrive to take Savage Opress and the crooked mine owner into custody, Darth Maul convinces the locals that the Jedi are in league with the mine owner who exploited them. If the Jedi fight the natives, they’ll be killing innocents. If they don’t, they’ll be killed themselves! It’s the perfect distraction for Maul to find and release his brother!

On Writing Maul

October 30, 2012 at 9:00 am | Posted in Art, Comic Books, Dark Horse, Star Wars News | Leave a comment
Tags: , ,

With the Darth Maul: Death Sentence mini-series coming to an end tomorrow with issue #4, comic writer Tom Taylor decided to share his thoughts on writing Maul.

“This week, Star Wars – Darth Maul: Death Sentence comes to an end every bit as nasty as the Sith lord himself.

I have to say, I’ve absolutely loved writing Darth Maul.

Before I started, I had a few people ask me how I could write a character like Maul. Many saw him as little more than a scary face and a few flips but what I discovered was a complicated, tortured, calculating and Machiavellian character who was a whole lot of fun. I loved testing him in this series, watching him pull through and, finally, watching him pull the strings. I’d love to get the chance to write him again some day. It was also nice to create the Jedi Judd and Salmara, and go back and show some of the childhood of Dray, a character I created in Star Wars: Invasion.
Of course, there’s no way that Maul would have been half the character he was on the page without Bruno Redondo. Bruno’s work on this series has been fantastic. His facial expressions, his action, the small moments and the big, he’s conquered them all along with the brilliant Michael Atiyeh. And all this wrapped up in those gorgeous painted covers by Dave Dorman. Cheers to all of these guys along with Michael Heisler, Randy Stradley and Freddye Lins.

Thanks to everyone who picked up the series and to everyone who tweeted, shared, and reviewed it. Hope you like the ending.” -Tom Taylor

Tom also included a sneak peak at Darth Maul: Death Sentence #4 which you can check out here on his official site.

While an injured Darth Maul recuperates from his recent battle with a team of Jedi, he plots his revenge—and the rescue of his brother Savage Opress (now in Jedi custody). But it isn’t simply the Jedi that Maul must face; it’s a powerful mining magnate with forces of his own! Luckily for Maul, the mine owner has made a career out of exploiting the local work force, and the natives are . . . revolting!
