John Jackson Miller, comic writer for the upcoming Knights of the Old Republic: War, did a couple interviews to cover the new KOTOR arc. On MTV he talks about how KOTOR: War will be like a new beginning, and fans that haven’t read the previous KOTOR comics will still be able to jump on board and enjoy the series. He also reassured existing KOTOR fans that we will see familiar faces and some old plot threads that didn’t get wrapped up. John also talks a little about the setup and what kind of challenges Zayne is going to be facing going forward, as well as a mention that we’ll see some first person narration from Zayne. You can read the full interview here.

John also did a podcast interview with Review Fix which you can listen to here.

UPDATE: John also did an interview with Nerd World News which you can read here.
