    • With Phasma #1 out we finally learned how Phasma escapes.
    • Page 1: Page 1 was the most difficult page to do. I did it at the end of issue 1. We started with a big splash of Phasma and I wanted put in a little Easter egg: The door behind her is exactly the same door we saw in the trash compactor of A New Hope.”
    • Page 2: Page 2 was my first page of this miniseries. I watched The Force Awakens many times — I love it — to give these pages the same atmosphere as the movie. I used it to study a lot of elements: Phasma, backgrounds, and also the new stormtroopers.
    • Page 3: The story by Kelly Thompson is so intriguing and the script is so well written that it draws itself. On this page we can see that the Phasma’s cape is very useful, and not just an accessory. (Phasma uses cape to block blaster shots)
    • Page 4/5: “Kelly has a great taste for spectacular scenes and knows exactly when the artist needs space to open the scene. In these pages, I was asked to draw Poe Dameron’s X-wing. When I want a precise atmosphere, I usually color some parts of my pages, as in this case, to help the colorist do an easy job.”
