Happy new notes

Travel concluded, I've finally posted some thoughts on Knights of the Old Republic #36. Enjoy!

Happy new year to all. Resolution #2009-247 was to blog more, but I am alerted that this was also Resolution #2008-132 in the previous session. Well, it was good enough for last year!

More SithFire action figure coolness: Demagol

On my old site, I had posted some of Sith_Fire30's home-brew action figures from the KOTOR series: Here's the latest, the demonic Doctor Demagol from Knights of the Old Republic #8.

Check out the rest of the images over on the Dark Horse thread for this figure!

Holiday greetings from Knights of the Old Republic #36...

...a comic book you can find this Christmas Eve at your local comic book store. Zayne and company are off to new challenges in the Coreworlds in our latest issue, part 1 of "Prophet Motive."

It'll be a few days before I can get any notes online about the issue -- I'm out of position and don't have the issue myself yet. But coming at this time of the year and following a major extended storyline, this two-parter has some similarities with "Reunion" a ways back -- showing us a brand new place and setting us up for adventures to come. It's also in some sense a reversal of how we opened 2008 -- where we didn't know what the supporting cast was doing when the year started, now it's Zayne who's been away. It'll all be unfolding as 2009 progresses...

I'm also pleased to report the solicitation of Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic Vol. 6: Vindication, which is our largest trade paperback yet and brings the series up to date all the way up to #35. (Recall, Volume 5 was part of the "Vector" hybrid edition with Dark Times.) I'll have a page online for it on the site soon as well, but in the meantime you can check out the details on the DH site at the link provided.

Happy Life Day to all -- may all your Wookiees sing in perfect harmony!

A fresh start for the Old Republic

...or that is the title of my latest IGN interview now online. Enjoy!

Programming notes, etc.

Just a few notes today: I'll be on the Fictional Frontiers radio show this Sunday — it airs 11:00 AM to 12:00 Noon EST on WNJC 1360 AM-Philadelphia. A few days after, the podcast goes online here. My segment is prerecorded and was an enjoyable interview to do — covering both both my past and future Star Wars work with an interviewer who knew the series really well. It's part of a larger SW show, they said — super-collector Steve Sansweet is also slated to be on the program.

I am finally back in Comics Buyer's Guide, after a long hiatus getting my webcomic going. The topic in this month's issue (#1650): getting a webcomic going...

And I was sorry to read about the passing of Van Johnson. I admit that I wasn't aware he was still with us — he's been out of the public eye for many years — but he's in a lot of great movies, including some of my favorites. Check out Battleground, a wonderful retelling of the Battle of the Bulge (and, yes, that is Ricardo Montalban out there in the snow). He also did a lot of TV later on, including at least two spokes of the NBC Mystery Movie "wheel" from the 1970s that I can recall. (I wonder if anyone did the "full wheel"? Nah, there weren't that many episodes of Hec Ramsey to be in...)

"Dueling Ambitions" -- and dueling the weather

OK, I really didn't mean to go so long between posts — but there have been large assignments to get out the door, plus relearning how to get snow off a driveway. (Someone in the weather department seems to be unconvinced that Wisconsin has enough. Believe me, it has.)

I can also alert you to the solicitation for Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic #39, the first part of the "Dueling Ambitions" arc. I've already seen Brian Ching's great art on the issue — for now, you can check out the cool cover by Daryl Mandryk (his first on the series).

Some more updates — my first "Dark Times" era work appears as Episode 9 of the Dawn of Defiance campaign for the Wizards of the Coast's Star Wars Roleplaying Game. I don't know when it'll post, but it should be in the next several weeks. It's free to check out, and it was a lot of fun to work on. I'll post the link when it becomes available. (And I swear, I'll have some notes online about the KOTOR Campaign Guide before the turn of the calendar. Fingers crossed for less snow!)
