John Jackson Miller Talks Knight Errant: Deluge and More

Fictional Frontiers did a really nice podcast interviewing Star Wars author and comic writer John Jackson Miller. They covered a lot of ground including Knight Errant, especially the upcoming Deluge arc, his upcoming novels, as well as the comic book industry in general.

John revealed that Kerra will be returning to her homeworld in the upcoming Deluge arc, but unlike Aflame and the Knight Errant novel, Kerra will find very little assistance from the people on Aquilaris, part of that being due to drug abuse on the planet. However Kerra will be receiving a new ally in the form of a Republic starfighter captain named Jenn Devaad. The importance of this meeting is that Jenn gives Kerra the opportunity to let someone else take over the role of saving people, thus letting Kerra get back to her original mission: fighting Sith. John also mentioned that Jenn will represent a potential role model for Kerra and that the Deluge arc will have a lot of starfighter combat.

Cover of Deluge #1

Newsarama interviewed John Jackson Miller and got some details on Deluge, the next comic arc in the Knight Errant comic series. Here’s a snippet from the interview detailing what Deluge is going to be like…

As Deluge opens, Kerra has returned, at last, to Aquilaris, responding to a distress call. It’s the chance she’s been looking for to score some points and get some personal satisfaction from it. But it comes at a time of increasing frustration for Kerra, too. People living out in the Sith-controlled Outer Rim are completely battered down and downtrodden; it’s not ripe for mounting a rebellion or revolution. Many of the people here have been enslaved for their entire lives, and there’s drug abuse, as people try to forget their hardships. More than anything, she could use some help…

…and we give it to her. Knight Errant: Deluge sees her getting her fondest dream: competent help she can trust. New allies arrive from the Republic in the form of Captain Jenn Devaad and her Devil Squadron, the advance team for the mercy mission known as Grace Command. In many ways, they’re like the allies that Kerra lost in that initial disaster; absolutely what she was looking for. Other allies she’s had, like Jarrow Rusher in the novel, she couldn’t quite trust because they’d worked for the Sith. Devaad definitely doesn’t. For Kerra, it’s an enormously happy moment — a chance to get back on the path she wanted to walk.

The interview goes on to discuss just what kind of Jedi Kerra Holt is, and what the title Deluge refers to. There’s a lot of great info in the interview, so be sure to check it out. You can read the full interview here.
