Newsarama has been catching up with the Dark Horse folks to talk about the upcoming crossover Vector. First up, editor Randy Stradley (and a peek at another cover) and then creators John Jackson Miller, John Ostrander and Jan Duursema. Interesting factoid: They’ve been laying the groundwork for the crossover for a while now. Intrigue!
Irvin Kershner is coming to Celebration! Along with Howard Kazanjian, Norman Reynolds, and Robert Watts.
More CIV updates
We also get the news that Jan Duursema is scheduled to be at Celebration IV – I believe this makes her the first confirmed guest. (Although more are certainly on the way.)
Many apologies for the delay with issue 3. Sometimes even when you think it’s all covered, there’s that one last unforseen thing that does not fall neatly into place.
We’re exploring some new territory in Star Wars with this one. Personally, I think it will be worth the wait. After 3, we should be back on track with the rest. In the meantime, I keep wondering–when this issue finally hits the stands, will we hear individual screams or will be it more like the sound of a whole planet…
Also, it seems that A Practical Man, the NJO-era Boba Fett e-novella by Karen Traviss, is available now. Won’t be much help for those of us yearning for some post-NJO action, but I suppose Fettheads need love, too.
The preview issue of the controversial comic series that takes place 100 years into the future of Star Wars will be available in a comic store near you tomorrow for only 25 cents. The comic is written by by John Ostrander, with art by Jan Duursema, the folks behind the Republic series that had fanboys salivating.
At least, we can hope it comes out tomorrow, as #0 has been pushed back pretty much every week so far.
In any case, there’s a hefty article up on Newsarama for your perusal.
To further jog your memory, here’s our past coverage on Legacy: Letter from Randy Stradley / The Previews solicitation / Newsarama interviews Randy Stradley and Jan Duursema / The initial annoucement
Legacy #1 is due out the 21st.
Editor Randy Stradley and artist Jan Duursema speak about the upcoming Legacy comic on Newsarama. Some of the comments are culled from the TFN and Dark Horse boards, but even I gave up on the TFN thread after about 10 pages.
