Every fan of Star Wars novels most likely has a list of books they have always wanted to see. For me the book on the top of that list was a novel featuring my favorite Expanded Universe character, Quinlan Vos. With Del Rey’s recent announcement of a novel featuring Asajj Ventress and Quinlan Vos, it seems like I got my wish. In Summer of 2015 we will be getting a novel based on unused scripts from The Clone Wars animated series.
I remember when Dave Filoni posted his sketches of scenes from the unused scripts. I was happy to see images of Vos, but extremely sad at the idea I would never get to see those stories on screen. With the recent release of the Son of Dathomir comics I knew there was a chance I would see these other stories in comic form someday, but I never expected a novel. To me a novel is an even better option because it will allow us to really get into the character’s heads.
So you may wonder why I am so excited for a novel featuring a character who only had a significant role in one episode of The Clone Wars. That may be all he is to fans who have only seen the animated series, but to those of us who have been following the comics, he is so much more.
On this episode Mark and Nathan discuss the comics and characters from the Star Wars expanded universe in 2011! And also howling wolves, the movie Saw and omnibuses vs omnibi. (I’m only partially kidding.)
They look forward to new series of comics, and enjoyed learning new things about characters.
All sorts of comics get discussed!
How do different art styles affect comics? And a battle between a Hutt and a Jedi!? Do you like Hutts being in the Star Wars universe?
How do tie-in comics and novels affect each other, and the characters and stories involved?
How do characters and your ability to relate to them affect comics?
Should characters fall to the Dark Side, and stay there? Not be redeemed?
