What attracted me most to this job was I got to define Aphra as a functioning character in the Star Wars Universe. So the first year is one story. That will be about 15 issues, and it’s kind of, “Here’s Aphra, here’s why she’s a great character, and here is how she impacts the Star Wars universe.” -- Kieron Gillen

Here we basically get to “do” Black Krrsantan's origin. Plus! I get to do my take on His Girl Friday in Star Wars. -- Kieron Gillen

The way I put it in the pitch was that from Aphra’s point of view with Darth Vader she had a tiger by the tail. How can I let go of this tiger and survive? I don’t think Aphra realizes how many tigers she was holding by the tail. -- Kieron Gillen

"There’s also a lot of Uncanny X-Men to Jason [Aaron]’s Wolverine & The X-men. Good guys and bad guys, each telling their own story, each readable by themselves, each feeding into one another." - Kieron Gillen on collaborating with the main Star Wars title

'Star Wars is a setting that’s informed by many genres. There’s all these little bits and pieces here and there. So we’re focusing on this one very specific section and seeing what we can do with it in a Star Wars way. We really leaned into it as well. So by the end of the first episode it’s like, “Oh yeah! They’re totally doing gothic horror.” Than by the end of the crossover, it’s, “They really did Gothic Horror.”' - Kieron Gillen

It’s explicitly a book about fading Empire. M16’s roots are in World War 2, and the core of the plot reaches back to there. What is Britain’s place in the world now? What does being British even mean? In a real way, it is a post-Brexit Bond. -- Kieron Gillen

There is one thing in this story that is based on a very obscure bit of Legends material that I suspect people won’t spot. It’s so obscure that even long term Star Wars fans might not spot it and even then they probably won’t notice it until the end, because it’s a complete reimagining of a concept. I mean, to stress, it’s so obscure that I 100 percent don’t expect people to get what I’m building on. It’s just a good idea we’re giving a 21st century spin on. I expect readers to experience it just as this excellent thing that happens. -- Kieron Gillen

The book’s fundamental Indiana Jones quality come from the fact that it’s about an archaeologist in the Star Wars universe. The thing about the Star Wars universe is it’s really, really old. That’s kind of the thrill of it for me — taking a Star Wars thing and doing something you have not seen before with it. -- Kieron Gillen

'There’s a British TV show called “Fleabag.” Aphra is a bit like “Fleabag,” but in the Star Wars Universe. “Fleabag” is about this woman in her 20s who is just this moral monster. The stuff she does is utterly unforgivable, but also very funny to watch.' -- Kieron Gillen

'When I started writing Uber in 2008, that was coming from a “people are now now treating Nazis like cartoons, which bodes badly for the future, because if we don't remember what the Nazis were and why people supported them, it's more likely they'll be back” place. By now, that's a less hypothetical projection.' -- Kieron Gillen
