Oh awesome! I'm really curious to see how you interpret the Keshiri actually.

Huge fan btw, awesome to see you show up on the forum!

I emailed JJM to see if he could settle the Keshiri debate for us. I wasn't expecting him to show up! Very Happy

I had a huge fan-boy moment, he's one of my favorite comic-book authors! Him, Scott Snyder, and Grant Morrison are my top 3!

"Can you perhaps tell us if this occurs during or after the LTOTS short stories?"

After -- and after the novella, too. But both the novella and the comics occur in the lifetimes of the characters in "Secrets."

Appreciate the kind words. Would be around more, but it's been crazy for the last... well, geological era!

A very good e-mail for you to have sent apparently!

I've found that almost all the Star Wars authors are great at replying when you ask them about their work. Its really great to have that level of access and accomodation (and I'm sure its no easy task getting bombarded by the fanboys/girls)

Thank you Mr. Miller. That's really great to know (I'm a timeline/continuity nerd).

It really is great to see you take the time to interact with the fans, I'm sure we can all understand the workload (well, or at least imagine).

1) Thanks for the clarification!

2) Kind words will always flow for you man, KotoR was an outstanding read and I love your Star Wars contributions in general Smile

Thanks for the answer! Looking forward to more sneak peeks in the future.

There is a lot more coming from the Keshiri point of view in the "Pandemonium" novella -- which makes sense, if you've read the last of the short stories.

I read Lost Tribe of the Sith: Spiral #1. First off, I like the art. It's not stunning (like the art in Ghost Prison), but it's good. Plus I really like how Andrea Mutti squeezes in pictures of odd alien animals in every comic (he did this in KOTOR: War too). The alien fox looked pretty cool.

As for the story, it's a bit odd when everyone is a badguy and they're all trying to kill each other. I loved seeing Grand Lord Hilts in the issue. The new Doomed ones are interesting. One of them even looks like a Wookiee.

I'm reserving judgement on this one until after I've read the entire first arc. This was an interesting first issue but it didn't blow me away. KotOR blew me away with the first issue, Knight Errant did to, but it seems on this one that JJM is using a slow burn to build to something. I think this will be a far more interesting series than KE but it'll take time. This first arc is just establishing something, not really utilizing the bigger aspects yet. In KotOR you knew immediately the stakes, what the result would be, and who the two major players on both sides were. With KE and KotOR War I got a bit of a JJM 'eh' feeling going on but this feels better.

Having high hopes for this one. Only time will tell, but unlike most of the recent SW ....I have a good fealing about this one. Time will tell.

I really enjoyed this. I liked how similar it was to the novel.

I'm excited to see where it is going.

I have to give this one a miss. Can't even afford to continue buying KE issues. Still, I've heard good things about it. Nothing too spectacular, as was said above, but good nonetheless.

Comic artist Andrea Mutti did the artwork for KOTOR: War and he's doing the art for Lost Tribe of the Sith: Spiral. You may or may not have noticed that he likes to draw animals. I gathered all of his images together for a neat little post if you're interested in checking it out.

That's funny. I hadn't even noticed.
