Jedi Journals Interviews Corinna Bechko and Gabriel Hardman

Jedi Journals did an interview with the creators behind the next installment of Dark Horse Comics’ Star Wars Legacy series: Corrina Bechko and Garbriel Hardman. The interview covers a little bit of their background, how they got the offer to do Star Wars, their creation process and more.

Gabriel, could you share a little about your art style and technique? How long have you been drawing Star Wars (since you were a kid? 2 Months? Whatever! :)

Gabrial Hardman: Well, I’m sure I’ve drawn Star Wars pieces here and there over the years but I started drawing on the series in earnest a few months ago. Much like drawing Planet of the Apes, it’s a great feeling to have a fully developed sense on the world going in. If something doesn’t feel like Star Wars, it doesn’t go in the book. Most of the ships and planets in our Legacy are new or evolutions of previous designs. When designing for Star Wars, I’m always asking myself if it will fit with the work of Ralph McQuarrie, Joe Johnston and Nilo Rodis.

If you’re near Roanoke, VA this weekend, be sure to stop by SheVaCon. Star Wars author Aaron Allston will be there and to maximize your Allston experience, Aaron has posted his full schedule here.

With all the rumors going about on who will be starring in the Star Wars spinoff films, author Timothy Zahn weighed in with Hollywood.com. He also talked a little about Scoundrels. You can find the full interview here.

Also in interview news, Corinna Bechko and Gabriel Hardman, the creators behind the upcoming Legacy comics, spoke with Geek of Oz on Legacy: Prisoner of the Floating World. They give some hints on what readers can expect from the new ongoing series as well as talking about Ania Solo and her mysterious heritage. It’s definitely worth checking out.

In other news, Tom Taylor killed Lois Lane while a helpless Superman looked on. If you haven’t been following Injustice: Gods Among Us, you can catch up here. IGN interviewed Tom to get his opinions on killing Lois Lane, torturing Superman, and blowing up Metropolis. Hmm, maybe Tom’s threat to build superweapons wasn’t just a jest after all.

The Who song “Pinball Wizard” may take on a new meaning now that Star Wars is getting a pinball game. Just announced this week, Star Wars Pinball will be launching this month as downloadable content for several platforms. The game will kick off with pinball tables modeled after Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back, Boba Fett, and Star Wars: The Clone Wars. There are also seven more themes in production and will all be announced this year.
