Catching up on some Star Wars interviews we missed, there’s a few with comic writer John Ostrander covering his new series Agent of the Empire. John reveals the action will kick off in the Corporate Sector and provides some general info on the feel of the series in an interview with Nerd World News. In another interview with Angry Koala Gear, John covers some broader ground with his influences, his favorite comics, his favorite Star Wars character, and he touches on Agent of the Empire and Dawn of the Jedi.

Sure, there’s a lot of stories about Jedi and Sith, but there’s just as many tales about non Force-sensitive characters. Tales about characters who are just as important to the fabric of the EU.

And with that, I was committed to the most hallowed of blog posts: the Top Ten List.
