Interviewed on starwars.com about Star Wars Adventures

New interview alert! Artist Derek Charm and yours truly talk to Dan Brooks over at starwars.com about our shiny new Star Wars Adventures comic.

I start off by talking about Rey, the star of our first arc:

She’s a survivor, but a survivor who hasn’t sacrificed her sense of right and wrong while trying to scratch out an existence in the harshest of conditions. I think some of the most powerful moments for me came right at the beginning of the film when we see her alone in her wrecked AT-AT walker. You can see her resilience, but soon find out that, even though she’s lived a difficult life, she still wants to help people, putting their needs ahead of her own.

It was so much fun to go back to a time where she has yet to meet BB-8 and Finn. Jakku seems such a well-rounded world in The Force Awakens, so I wanted to delve more into the life of a scavenger and the community at Niima Outpost. And when you deal with Niima, you have to deal with Unkar Plutt who plays a big part in Star Wars Adventures’ first arc.

Plus, I also got to sneak in my favorite Niima resident — Bobbajo. I love that little crittermonger. I can’t believe we haven’t got an action figure of him yet. I need one to go with the Rey and Plutt toys in my study!
