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.
Well, the cat is out of the bag… The New Essential Guide to Alien Species is coming out later this year, and our own Helen Keier is one of the authors. Let’s raise a frothy blue cocktail to her!
Sadly, TFN is more interested in who’s doing the cover than noticing that one of their former staffers is getting her first book.
In the latest issue of Bantha Tracks, Union is topping the comic Top Ten list, with Tales of the Jedi trailing behind. Not being Dark Horse’s biggest fan (Tales! Tales! Damn my non-voting self!) I blame our very own Paula, who got quoted. Or maybe not. ;)
Not that Union is the worst thing DH has ever done or anything, but… well. Maybe it’s just my knee-jerk reaction to the series’ awful, awful covers. You can pander to the females without making it look like a romance novel folks – it’s okay.
That and more smushy stuff in the latest edition of Bantha Tracks.
The top-secret Dark Horse project is Star Wars Legacy, a series set 100 years after the New Jedi Order.
It’s way too early for April Fool’s , but part of me is wondering what the hell!
Well, looks like Dark Horse is getting more cash from me than I thought – among the Spring 2006 releases is Tag & Bink Episode I – Revenge of the Clone Menace.
According to the International Digital Publishing Forum, the Revenge of the Sith script was the best-selling eBook of 2005, beating, among others, The Da Vinci Code, Michael Crichton, and the Bible.
Sue Rostoni has posted the character list for Aaron Allston’s Betrayal, the first book of the Legacy series. There’s also a (very) short excerpt.
