FANgirl Blog posted an interview with Star Wars author James Luceno covering Darth Plagueis and with some nice insights into Palpatine.

When you started with Palpatine, was it easy to get into his head? Or did you really have to think about it?

James Luceno: I had been thinking a lot about Palpatine going back as far as Cloak of Deception. I got to explore him a little more in Labyrinth of Evil, and again in Dark Lord. So by the time I began writing Darth Plagueis I felt I knew Sidious better than I knew almost any character that I’d written. Not necessarily everyone’s choice of the character you want to know a lot about, but that’s how it was.

New Release: ‘Bart Simpson #76’

For those willing to branch out a little, Star Wars author and comic writer John Jackson Miller has a new story called “Fund-Razing” out in Bart Simpson #76 which hits comic stores today.

“As with most of my Simpsons stories, there’s a real-life inspiration to “Fund-Razing.” I was in an interminable fund-raising assembly in high school where a speaker was ticking off all the lame prizes that could be won for sales — and one of the guys in the audience yelled out “Ten thousand dollars in cash!” at the appropriate time, causing the assembly to collapse into laughter. That kid was likely punished — but his efforts go rewarded years later, as Bart pulls the same stunt with chaotic results!” –John Jackson Miller

John will be back next month with another story in Bart Simpson #77.

Dark Horse Comics has several new Star Wars releases, all of them trade paperbacks.

Dark Times: Out of the Wilderness TPB

Everyone wants fugitive Jedi Dass Jennir. An assassin is hot on his heels, Darth Vader is also in the race to find him, and even the outlaw crew of the Uhumele are searching for their former companion. But for Jennir and his “partner” Ember Chankeli, those are distant concerns as they endure a scorching desert trek and an attack by deadly land pirates!

Even under a blazing sun, these are dark times! Collects Star Wars: Dark Times—Out of the Wilderness #1–#5.

Agent of the Empire: Iron Eclipse TPB

Imperial power is at its height. With Palpatine on the throne and his chief enforcer, Darth Vader, leading fleets of Star Destroyers and legions of stormtroopers across the galaxy, the Empire is an unstoppable force for order and peace.

But not every political problem requires military might; not every negotiation depends on a show of force. Sometimes all diplomacy needs to succeed is the right man, in the right place, with the willingness to get the job done. No matter what it takes.

Collects Star Wars: Agent of the Empire—Iron Eclipse #1–#5.

Knights of the Old Republic: War TPB

The Republic and the Mandalorians are at war, and some of the Jedi are joining the fight! One Jedi, peace-loving Zayne Carrick, has found himself on the front lines against his wishes—he’s been drafted . . . And when Zayne is captured by the Mandalorians while storming beaches with his fellow Republic troops, he suddenly is forced not only to fight, but to fight alongside the enemy! Collects Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic—War #1–#5.
