First look: StarWars.com gives us a peek at The Art of Star Wars: The Clone Wars. I continue to wince at the appropriation of McQuarrie art in the name of designs based on those awful puppets. (Not that people were exactly Ralph’s greatest either, but if one must choose…) Your mileage may vary, but this is probably one Art of I’ll be sitting out for.
TFN has two separate interviews with the creative team behind Dark Horse’s upcoming New Jedi Order comic, Invasion. The first is with writer Tom Taylor, by former staffer Mike Cooper on their message boards. The second, on TFN proper, is with artist Colin Wilson, who’s also worked on the Star Wars titles Legacy and Republic.
And don’t forget about our Invasion poll!
News out of New York Comic Con! Dark Horse is launching a new ongoing series based in the New Jedi Order era, Invasion… It follows the Yuuzhan Vong and will feature main characters like Luke and Jacen. It’s scripted by Tom Taylor with art by Colin Wilson, and will launch with a web-only preview issue on StarWars.com in May. (via)
UPDATE: Dark Horse is not adding a another book; Rebellion is getting the ax and Invasion is replacing it. Check out a full report from NYCC’s Dark Horse panel at Newsarama.
