A while ago J.W. Rinzler mentioned that Entertainment Weekly would have a special Star Wars article coming soon. Well EW has finally delivered with some coverage of The Star Wars. The article shows off some new artwork and includes an interview with Dark Horse’s top management, Randy Stradley and Mike Richardson.

What was the approach as far as the creative team and the design work for the project?

Randy Stradley: We did a lot of searching to find somebody who was right for this and, almost by accident, I stumbled across samples from an artist named Mike Mayhew — he’s no relation to Peter Mayhew, who played Chewbacca by the way. But it just looked right. George really has an affinity toward classic-looking comic books; he’s a big fan of Jack Kirby and stuff from the 1960s and Mike’s drawings and storytelling approach is reminiscent of that, even though the style is very modern. It’s been a nice combination and so far George has liked what he’s seen, so we’re excited. The entire weight of designing this new universe won’t fall on Mike Mayhew’s shoulders; I’ve also enlisted an army of comic and storyboard artists that’s designing vehicles and characters and locations.

UPDATE: Please note that the interview above has been brought into question due to responses from Randy Stradley himself who has stated that the answers in the interview are not completely accurate and do not fully represent the opinions of him and Mike Richardson.

Kevin Hearne’s next eNovella Grimoire of the Lamb now has a cover. The next chapter in the Iron Druid Chronicles will be available May 7th. You can check out all the details on Kevin’s website.

From the author of The Iron Druid Chronicles comes a rollicking, all-new urban-fantasy adventure featuring Atticus O’Sullivan. Atticus has a history of messing with the gods, and in this eBook original novella, he’ll have to outfox a deity at her own deadly cat-and-mouse game.

When he’s not vanquishing villainous gods or dodging demons, two-thousand-year-old Druid Atticus O’Sullivan can be found behind the counter of Third Eye Books and Herbs in modern-day Tempe, Arizona, literally minding his own business. But when an evil sorcerer—and amateur shoplifter—snatches an ancient Egyptian tome of black magic, The Grimoire of the Lamb, Atticus is not sheepish about pursuing him to the ends of the earth . . . or at least to the Land of the Pharaohs.

Unfortunatel,y Atticus already has enemies in Egypt—including cat goddess Bast, who wants her own book of mischief back from the Druid. In the streets of Cairo, she sends a feline phalanx after Atticus and his Irish wolfhound, Oberon. With fur still flying, Atticus must locate the sorcerer’s secret lair—where he will face killer crocodiles, spooky sarcophagi, and an ancient evil Egyptian who’s determined to order the sacrificial lamb special tonight.

Includes a preview of Kevin Hearne’s highly anticipated new novel in The Iron Druid Chronicles, Hunted!
