Brian Wood Talks Vader

September 14, 2013 at 1:25 pm | Posted in Comic Books, Dark Horse, Interview, Star Wars | Leave a comment

Suvudu posted a brief interview with comic writer Brian Wood on the Star Wars series. Brian teased a little bit of what’s to come with Vader.

Anything else you want to share with our readers?

Brian Wood: This first story, the first twelve issues, has been long and very heavily focused on the rebel side of things. That Vader story that starts in #13… read that, its an entirely different angle on things and definitely shows a side of Vader that most haven’t seen. I’m very proud of it.
