Grant Gould broke the news last night (at least online) that he, Tom Hodges, Katie Cook, and Jeff Carlisle will be working on a The Clone Wars web comic for StarWars.com to accompany the tv series. Hodges revealed more this morning on the TFN boards:
The quick version is each week, we’ll be given a story leading into that weeks episode. Now it could be a direct tie-in or peripherally connected from a distance because some episodes have story arcs not connected to each and every episode. Keep in mind, the series will not always be about Anakin, Obi-Wan and Padme. It will flesh out characters we’ve only seen bits and pieces of.
This will also NOT be “web-strip” format. It will be full color, comic format and each story will be 5 pages in length.
More as we get it!
- Art: Katie Cook drew a Luke and Mara sketch card. Also check out her stormtrooper baby shower.
- Comics: Legacy scribe John Ostrander is O in Comics Should Be Good’s Alphabet of Cool.
- Previews: Legacy #22, Dark Times #10, Rebellion #13.
- E-books: The folks over at NJOE spotted a listing on Random House for the first eight Legacy of the Force books due out April 29th. At only $40, it’ll save you more than $20 than if you were buying them all in paperback, so if you haven’t started LOTF yet, this is a great deal. (Sacrifice sees PB release the same day.) The last book, Invincible, comes out May 13th. (via)
With blackjack! And hookers!
- Hot rumor mill action! Jim Hill wonders if Lucasfilm and Disney are plotting something. Oh, oh! A land war in Asia!
Elsewhere in the media…
- David Lynch (briefly) talks about George’s offer to direct ROTJ. Sadly lacking in wacky Lynch-ness. (via)
- Star Wars-inspired shoes much less Star Wars-looking than expected. I am underwhelmed. Really, you could throw a SW logo on pretty much anything made of shiny black leather and call it Vader-inspired.
- Video of George Lucas at the D5 conference.
- I bet Phil knows this guy. Also every time I see the headline I think it says Mary Franklin.
- Star Wars namechecked in column on movie soundtracks, surprisingly absolutely no one.
- Artist re-envisions critic as a Hutt. Naturally. (via)
