Zack Giallongo Interview – SWBW #19

Play

It’s the one year anniversary of our podcast, and we want to celebrate! For our celebration we are not only giving away free books (learn more here) but we also have two new episodes of Bookworms this week.

Last episode we reviewed the comic digest Ewoks: Shadows of Endor. This episode we interview the writer/artist of the comic, Zack Giallongo.

  • Are Ewoks cool again? We talk about why Ewoks aren’t just for kids anymore.
  • Originals or Special Editions? It may surprise you what we all picked.
  • Is magic the same as the Force in the Star Wars universe? Hear what Zack had to say.
  • Zack gives us some behind the scenes info on different aspects of the comic and a teaser for the future.
  • Of course we had to ask him what his hopes for the Sequel Trilogy are.
  • Did we really spend the last 10 minutes talking about Tiny Death Star!?
