Big Shiny Robot posted an interview today with comic writer Tom Taylor. The interview covers Blood Ties: Boba Fett is Dead which will be out this week.

BSR!: Over the years, there have been a lot of Fett stories that were more or less standalone adventures in the classic movie era, but your Blood Ties work brings in some elements never before seen: Boba’s relationship with those who helped shape him, like his father. How do you get into the mind of one of the galaxy’s notorious bounty hunters?

Tom Taylor: Boba Fett is a man of mystery but he IS a man. We’ve seen him as a child. We know how he felt about his father. We know that he does have a sense of honor. He’s not an impenetrable bad guy or an optimistic hero. He’s not black or white, he’s a character of grays. I look at his past, I look at his future, I look at all the hits his armor has taken and I just run with it.

I don’t think you can tell a story about Boba Fett though, I think the people around him are how you tell his story because, despite his rich history, he’s still pretty impenetrable… well, impenetrable until page 1 of Boba Fett is Dead. Then he’s not impenetrable at all. He’s all full of smoking holes.
