I return to Star Wars comics in IDW’s STAR WARS ADVENTURES ANNUAL 2018!

Jedi are trained diplomats, but farmboys? Not so much! But Luke has to learn in a hurry as he’s forced to pinch-hit for Leia on a diplomatic mission of major importance to the protocol-obsessed Sarkans — and even Threepio might not be enough to save him from starting an intergalactic incident! Will Leia have to bail him out? I share the story in Star Wars Adventures Annual 2018, releasing April …

Deal the cards — STAR WARS: CANTO BIGHT hits the shelves!

Star Wars: Canto Bight is now on sale, in hardcover, ebook, and audiobook! Four interconnected novellas describe the casino world from Star Wars: The Last Jedi, where the wealthy and powerful go to escape (and ignore) the galaxy’s troubles. All stories set the same night!

Winter is in full swing here in the wilds of Wisconsin, along with a pretty hairy ice storm that’s hours old as I write this. Fortunately I’m inside, writing away — and speaking of hairy, I have new reading material in the new Planet of the Apes: Tales from the Forbidden Zone anthology from Titan Books! Edited by Rich Handley and Jim Beard, the book draws upon the original five …

Of royalty lost: Remembering Carrie Fisher

We all learned a few hours ago that Carrie Fisher passed away today, following a heart attack on Friday. Photo by Riccardo Ghilardi My initial response — on social media and off — was that I had no words. In fact, I probably have too many. I will try to organize a few now. It probably won’t help, but it’s better to do something than nothing. This has been a …
