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 tone is definitely in the Darth Vader vein, a bit darker and more serious than most comics I’ve written, since Phasma herself is a bit darker and more serious. It was a nice challenge for me and I hope I rose to the occasion!"

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

The letterer for Groo, the illustrator for 47 Ronin, the creator/writer/illustrator/letterer/inker/authority supreme for Usagi Yojimbo, Stan Sakai has found the time to do some one-offs too. According to the man himself, he worked on a short Hulk story called "Oni", a "Peanuts" strip, an interlude in "Queen and Country". I also found a Star Wars story, and somebody in a forum mentioned a Rocketeer and a Grendel story.

I was unable to find the "Queen and Country", "Peanuts", "Grendel" and "Rocketeer" excerpts, but I do have the Hulk and the Star Wars stories to share below.

I wanted to post this for May the Fourth, AKA Star Wars Day. It is a page and a half from the "Treasury Edition" of Marvel's adaptation of THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK. And I'm posting it because I have a question about Yoda's original opinion of Luke Skywalker.

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

In 1998 two things happened in the Star Wars universe: Natalie Portman was cast to play the mother of Luke and Leia, and Darkhorse was at work adapting Timothy Zahn's Thrawn books. In issue 5 of "The Last Command," the opportunity arose for Padmé to make her first official appearance.

Here is that one page, penciled by Edvin Biukovic, inked by Eric Shanower, and coloured by

'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 was sort of thinking about Aphra, the core of it was, Star Wars is about these archetypes. Archetypes, if you write them very badly, they become cliched. These very powerful, direct characters. You know, you’re not writing Proust. That’s not the point. The point is to be these big figures. A lot of my work was, 'Okay, in terms of Star Wars, what sorts of characters fit well into that universe?' And it was, 'Oh! The Indiana Jones archaeologist archetype.'" -- Kieron Gillen
