And sorry but the fact that they drew Poe as if he was a divorced father of four with two mortgages doesn't help matters with any supposed ReyPoe vibes. No offense to any ReyPoe friends though.


ETA: btw Riri you have an unread PM, check it out.
@Darth Rowan

Lol! You put it perfectly! He's showing off about piloting skills when those 2 mortgages and 4 kids force him to drive a 92 Ford Escort. :D

Seriously though,  the illustration is terrible.  
@SoloSideCousin

My thought when I first saw it was "Rey is forced to listen to Steve, the annoying Marketing Manager at the after-work team building event at Chili's" but it's the same guy. I remember long ago a discussion about what would happen if they compared their respective experiences and Rey's like "it wasn't so bad" and Poe realizes that he didn't get the same treatment she did. And she never answered Finn pestering her about "did he hurt you?" He's gotta be curious and want to pester her about what happened now that they're stuck together on a small ship to nowhere.

@snufkin agreed. If Rey compares notes with Finn and Poe about her treatment at the hands of Kylo Ren, it will become apparent to everyone (and hopefully to some viewers who still haven't gotten the memo *eye roll*) that Ben was actually *gasp* attentive with Rey, his war prisoner at the time.

@SoloSideCousin, I Googled what a 1992 Ford Escort looks like and:
Damn, son:
General Discussion: Canon Novels/Comics/Short Stories - Page 7 Screen43
lol!

But seriously though, Poe looks rough in this comic. He looks 20 years older than he's supposed to be. What is up with that?

This artstyle exaggerates every real life line in the actors' faces and it makes them look not so great. Not sure why they thought that was a good idea.

Yeah, that art isn’t flattering at all. From the comic preview we got a few days ago, I thought the Beautiful Friendship Gang vibe seemed rather dull. Now that the comic is out, it’s as boring as I thought it would be and Poe comes across as a bit of a showboat. I hope their vibe in Episode IX is better.

@Darth Rowan His whole weirdo “you’re my guest” line, the traditional meaning of that word is that somebody is under your protection. And well, he did end up killing the guy who was threatening her. Very different experience than Poe s.

@Riri - Thanks for sharing! Rofl he does like to repeat that he is a great pilot. Aie!!! Rey’s reaction is priceless!
Yeah you are right Riri, it would have been too spoilery to see Rey react to Poe’s tales I guess!

@Riri @Night Huntress @SoloSideCousin @ISeeAnIsland
Yeah we can see the broken saber very clearly. Indeed the kyber looks split in two.
It makes sense to me too as the pull between them appeared ‘equal’ and the kyber is the centre of the saber’s decision making.. Whatever you think may be the actual cause of that equality in that moment. I hope we see this crystal and Kylo/Ben's crystal both be healed in IX. will be wonderful!

Even though the book and comic confirms the split, I hesitate to see it as confirmed.. could be just me.. and I’m super interested in the lightsabre story in this trilogy!
I’m willing to leave this as a wait and see.. I’d usually give more weight to something with two canon sources saying the same thing. Lol. I wonder why I’m not this time! Hmmm probably because I’m certain we will know for sure in IX – so it will have the final say and trump the books and comics.
There are so many things in SW we seek answers to but can’t be certain we will get them – at least for a while! With Rey’s kyber crystal though we are sure to find out as it is central to the Rey and Kylo/Ben story, and Rey’s identity as a jedi.
I also don’t see this comic as terribly accurate as Rey doesn’t even have a scar on her upper right arm. Lol.

Love the cackle!!! And Love this image of Poe you describe! Whahahahaaaa!!!

I agree – not loving the art style in this comic. It’s the same artist as the legends found Poe Dameron series.. but I guess they are trying to go stylistically for a different look here. Hmm not lovin it!

Poe doesn’t seem terribly interested in what Rey and Finn have to contribute haaaaaa… (okay in all fairness to Poe this is his comic/story!)

I can’t believe how quickly Star Wars comics story channel on youtube got this comic up. Kudos to them. Here’s the link if you want to read it and haven’t: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KjRtiaS7R9M

More than a few random comments from me:
I was not on the edge of my seat like I was hearing from LST! I'm curious to see how the crawl from IX shares the same info – without doubling up.
‘Now the remnants of General Leia Organa’s resistance flee…’ – whooo I love that word. Can we call the few survivors now the remnants?!

Rey: ‘If there’s one thing I’m beginning to learn, Poe, it’s that you can’t dwell on changing the past. Concentrate on the present, work with what you have.’
I love this line.. fits well with Rey having made peace with her past in VIII, and hints she will not be letting the events of TLJ hold her back in IX!

Love Rey’s take down of Poe.. if you are the best pilot in the galaxy why are so many of your ships crashing?! Good call!

Loved the shout out to the freezing the blaster bolt moment – hmm a little reference to it as it will show up again in IX?! Hope so!

Poe’s description of Kylo is so dripping in irony as he tells Rey and Finn ‘delightful guy, real charmer’ – Oh he issssssss!!! [As Maz would say haaa]

I like the drawing of Kylo Ren! Is it just me or is it super exciting to finally see Kylo in a comic?! (I guess other than TFA comic).
General Discussion: Canon Novels/Comics/Short Stories - Page 7 Kylo10
‘A little light torture’ – if you saw what he did to Rey - Poe, you wouldn’t say that haaaa!

Naka is pretty brutal.. and he’s one of the nicer people on Jakku?! poor Rey growing up there all alone!!!

How Poe got off Jakku? I agree with Rey -  ‘So that was it?’! Yawn. Rey has a much juicer story to tell haaaaa

Love all the references to Jakku – this little exchange especially feels like foreshadowing to me for IX:
Poe: So it was bye-bye Jakku hope that’s the last time I see you. [famous last words]
Finn and Rey respond:
General Discussion: Canon Novels/Comics/Short Stories - Page 7 Jakku10
but... they could be leading me down the garden path to nowhere! (hey, Jakku is nowhere!)

The multiple references to this ‘Ohn Gos’ and giving Poe a ride, supporting the resistance, even letting Poe drop him somewhere and pick him up later? Sounds like this is someone who may be able to help the remnants of the resistance in IX! They made a point of stating the guy was trusting and believed in their cause. Interesting..

I really enjoyed seeing Han at Maz’s again..

General Discussion: Canon Novels/Comics/Short Stories - Page 7 Empty Dr.Aphra interview with creator and co-writer on Starwars.com

Post by DeeBee on Thu 26 Apr 2018, 10:30 pm

Hi all, there's a new interview on starwars.com which is fantastic: Doctor Aphra creator Kieron Gillen, co-writer Si Spurrier discuss what's next for the fan favourite rogue.
Here's the link: https://www.starwars.com/news/doctor-aphra-creator-kieron-gillen-co-writer-si-spurrier-discuss-whats-next-for-the-fan-favorite-rogue

I've not read all the Dr Aphra comics, I'm about half way through..Really interesting to learn how popular the character is. I didn't realise she was this popular. though lol with 19 comics out I um probably should have guessed lol!
There is loads here in this article/interview - really interesting insights about star wars universe in general - So even if you are not into Dr Aphra you could read this interview and get something out of it. [There are likely a few spoilers though if this concerns you.]

Here are a few quotes:
"Kieron Gillen: I normally say Aphra’s a lesbian. I’ve never written her with any romantic interest in men. There’s definitely some people who think Vader and Aphra were flirting but I’m not going to get into that.
Si Spurrier: Literally flirting with disaster.
Kieron Gillen: I’ve written her primarily romantically interested in women. I think that would be fair to say. Star Wars doesn’t really have the terminology that we do either. One of the things we wrote inside the first arc was that homophobia as we know it doesn’t really exist in the Star Wars universe. No one raises their eyebrow, no one seems surprised when it happens. It’s kind of just something that’s there, so the way that they process sexuality has got to be different anyway, and how they choose to identify, as well."

"Si Spurrier: I would say for me that there’s this funny thing when you look at Star Wars as a big, overarching [intellectual property] that as consumers, as geeks, we find ourselves uncomfortably drawn for a multitude of reasons to the wrong characters. There’s a reason that Vader is amazingly popular, and it’s probably because he’s such an incredible design, an incredible icon. There’s a reason that people love to cosplay as stormtroopers and maybe it’s the same. Maybe it’s because it’s such a great costume, it’s a sense of partaking in this incredible, visual world. But these are space fascists. And then you get Aphra and she’s all of those things that are problematic, but there’s also just this tiny, probably doomed, forlorn glimmer of redemption precisely because she’s smart enough that she understands conventional morality. She knows that Vader is probably not a nice person. She’s aware that space fascism is not necessarily a good thing but it may be the right thing for a chaotic universe, and so she’s sort of able to navigate all of these… The better way of putting it is that most of what we’ve seen so far in Star Wars is goodies versus baddies. And Aphra ain’t that. And I would suggest that the reason people respond — I’m generalizing, but the reason people respond more to Han Solo than they respond to Luke Skywalker is because he’s not just playing the goodie. He’s a little more complicated than that. And Aphra is 100% the same but from the other direction, if that makes sense. That’s my feeling anyway.
Kieron Gillen: In my head, I’ve got a list of ethical grayness in the Star Wars universe. You’ve got Han Solo who’s here, and slightly more gray, you’ve got Sana, and even more gray, you have Aphra. I’ve got this graph of rogueness."

This kind of reminded me of Rey and Kylo/Ben:
"StarWars.com: Tolvan’s obviously back in a very big way. When she first appeared in the first Doctor Aphra arc, was it always the plan for her to return and… I don’t know how else to phrase this, so… Are she and Aphra for real?
Kieron Gillen: When I invented Tolvan, I was explicitly thinking… This hard-bitten, kind of very serious kind of person chasing down this more whimsical person and the sexual tension. That was the thing. I wanted to have this sexual tension between the person being pursued and the person who is doing the pursing. And, of course, the flip of it is, Aphra’s the person who’s also pursuing Tolvan. Kind of like, I want to arrest you but also I’m crushing on the person trying to arrest me. That struck me as a really cool dynamic. When I was thinking it up, that was definitely a plot I’d like to do. So I’m glad it’s working."

And a super interesting insight into how the SW story group works..:
"Si Spurrier: It’s funny you say that. I’ve just been writing the latest Aphra Annual and I too have received a bunch of strange notes from the Story Group, many of them which add a great deal of stuff to the story, but there’s these funny moments when they’ll say, “Oh, you can’t do that.” And there’s no explanation for why you can’t do something, which seems very, very innocent, except that you’re immediately thinking, “Aha! Something like that is coming down the pipe in the next movie,” so you’ve always got this sort of half-prediction going on about what’s coming up next."

I guess this is a future non Dr.Aphra spoiler but to what SW content we don't know:
"StarWars.com: Shifting topics a little bit, how does it feel for both of you to see the ever-growing legion of Aphra cosplayers out there?
Kieron Gillen: It’s delightful. I mean, it’s good, isn’t it? Any time anyone dresses as any of your characters is great because it means they — obviously, the amount of craft that people put into it. I think someone actually has the Aphra tattoo. Now that’s amazing.
Si Spurrier: That’s something coming down the pipe as well… An actual use of the electric tattoos serving some function. Yeah, to answer your question, it’s always astonishing. I think it was Wil Wheaton who said cosplay is the purest expression of fandom that one can conceive of because you’re literally borrowing a character’s skin. I think that’s wonderful. There’s nothing better than seeing a character you created, so Kieron gets the biggest smile for that, but the character you are working with coming to life in front of you, that’s a hell of a moment."
I haven't come across anything about the electronic tattoos yet. Other than seeing it on her arm..

Interesting to hear the next Dr.Aphra arc is called 'Broken Inside' - isn't that a song that inspired Rian about Kylo/Ben?

Just wanted to give a shout out to this vid on youtube:


Really well done, and a bit mind blowing to see so many different sources brought together in one timeline like this.. Looks like some of the sources are pretty obscure ones I'm never going to read anyway.. but.. enjoy!

Moderators sorry I’m advance if it’s been posted. I do remember in one of the threads Batuu coming up but not in a book

https://www.starwars.com/news/exclusive-new-flight-of-the-falcon-book-series-to-debut-this-fall

Bazine Netal, the spy seen on Takodana in The Force Awakens, is on the hunt for the Falcon, and her intel leads her across the galaxy to Batuu, a remote outpost on the galaxy’s edge. In order to find the Falcon, Bazine must learn all she can about the infamous YT-1300 freighter—the ship that countless bounty hunters and Imperials have almost caught over the years.

“These tales take us from a time just before Solo: A Star Wars Story, when Lando and L3 had the Falcon, through the original trilogy, and into the new trilogy, ending on the incredible world of Batuu,” says Michael Siglain, Creative Director, Lucasfilm Publishing.

Aimed at readers 8-12 but hoping it’ll shed a few more details about Batuu

I constantly bemoan this, but why, WHY do all of the crucial character-building moments happen in materials outside of the films??? Add this to little baby Ben-Ben being without his parents, the traumatic attempted murder by the possessed droid, Snoke being in his head from an early age, his parents sending him away because they were afraid of him, the list goes on. It's a disservice to the character and story frankly.

@californiagirl

And it's not just for the viewers benefit either. This is coming from someone who liked TFA and loved TLJ, but JJ and Rian are honestly just making it harder for themselves too by omitting these details. We still don't have full context on how and why he fell -in the MOVIES- and it's just damaging to interpretations of the character. That context is necessary for people to understand Kylo, even if not to empathise with him, and people at this point are struggling to do even that. These kind of details would go a long way, and yeah I get that they might not want to reveal their hand with a redemption endgame, but all this mystery shrouding the character is irritating especially as he's the fallen son of Han and Leia, nephew of Luke Skywalker and last Skywalker himself, so they know the GA is dying to know more about him, yet they still deliberately withhold all the necessary backstory. I feel like it shows how much of a good actor Adam is, as he's operating on and having to rely far less on a full backstory and whatnot (say like Hayden Christensen as Anakin), and yet he still manages to radiate emotion and conflict in every maskless (and even masked, his body language is amazing and an underrated aspect of his character) scene he's in. He puts very ounce of himself into the character and it shows. I feel like he's being done a disservice everytime I see people call him 'whiny, emo, spoilt brat' and such.

@Kylo Rey Yes, and my worry is that the entirety of IX is just going to come across as retconning TLJ or even TFA, even if it's not, or that JJ came up with its story out of the blue. I get that LF may be responding to the justified complaint that the prequels were way too obvious about things, but perhaps they've swung so far in the opposite direction that audiences are having trouble following what is even happening. Seems strange for a series all about balance.

Hi All,
I can't see this has been shared anywhere.. Starwars.com has a fantastic interview (by Brooks, 2018) with author Gary Whitta - who was recently responsible for the last jedi comic adaption. It's really good!

Gary Whitta on Exploring the Force and Giving Ackbar his Moment in Marvel's Star Wars: The Last Jedi Comic

So many interesting insights I can't list them all.. Just want to recommend this interview as well worth reading!
I'll share below a few quotes..  but this is barely scratching the surface of all that is covered in this interview.
Gary Whitta wrote: Rian went in really deep and added new layers to the Force and new things that we hadn’t seen before.

This could even be a little dig at fanboys...[I couldn't believe I read this on starwars.com!!!]:
Gary Whitta wrote: There’s a really interesting subtext in the movie about how the image of the heroes we that have — the version that you look at when you look up at the statue, the myth that gets built around the man — is often very different to the reality of the man himself, who is often tortured and complex and very different from the version of the mythologized or the idealized version of that character that you’ve built up in your mind. So I think there’s a lot of really, really smart stuff going on there, that kind of commentary. I’m old enough to recognize Luke Skywalker — the old Luke Skywalker — in myself. You know, as you get older, you start thinking more about the choices you’ve made and the regrets that you have. You’re thinking more about the flaws and mistakes you’ve made in your life and I think that’s a very mature and a very sophisticated way to think about the growth of that character, rather than just the super-heroic version of him, the idealized version of him that I think some fans might have wanted to see.  
Hopefully Gary Whitta's comic adaption of that story will help some fans grow to appreciate Luke's arc! I think they would love the Ackbar reference in the title to this interview but lol Ackbar only is mentioned briefly!

Gary Whitta wrote: Nothing I do is going to in any way going to undermine or change the tone or intent or the message of the film. The film is going to be the film no matter what. Each version of that [story], Lucasfilm has encouraged each person who now will adapt it, whether it’s Jason Fry doing the novelization or me doing the comic, to jazz riff on it a little bit. And again, the essential melody is the same. There’s nothing in the comic that would fundamentally change or alter your impression of what you saw in the film. It’s not my job and I wouldn’t presume to go away and say, “Well, here’s how I would have done it!” and do some radically different ending for Luke or anything like that. [Laughs] I certainly feel honor-bound to not stray too far from the essential themes and the message and the intent of the film, and in fact I think it’s gonna be, for the large part, in many ways a very faithful adaptation. There’s a lot of stuff in the comics that you will absolutely recognize note-for-note from the film. There are other things that I’ve tried to slightly reinterpret. We don’t have room in the comic to add a lot of stuff, because it’s a really long film and it’s very, very dense.

Gary Whitta answering the question: So what do you think — without spoiling it — the comic form could bring to the story? wrote: It’s a good question. I think the answer lies in how much fidelity I feel like the comic has to have to the film. Like, I would never do this: For example, when Kylo tells Rey, “Well, your parents are nobody and that’s the end of that mystery.” It would be very easy if I wanted — it would never get through Lucasfilm anyway — but if I wanted to, I could have a little thought bubble of Kylo going, “Ha ha ha! She believed my deception! That’s not really true.” But that example is something that would completely undermine Rian’s authorial intent and even though it exists separately from the film, I don’t think it’s my job to [editorialize], even though I actually personally agree with that decision. I thought it was a brilliant choice that Rian had made to have that be the answer to that question. Even if I hadn’t though, I don’t feel like I have the authority to assert my own preferences as a fan on that and go against his, and go, “No, here’s how I would have done it.” And so, there’s a very, very narrow track when you do an adaptation like this, so you want to be faithful to what was in the movie — and again, Lucasfilm is going to police that, as well, because they don’t want some writer going off the reservation with a radically different kind of fan-fiction version of the film that now has fans asking, “Wait, so what is this? Are they saying it could be this or that?” I don’t want to confuse people, but at the same time trying to find those moments, whether it be adding an existing scene or, commonly, as I’m doing in this one, retelling an existing scene that you saw from the film, but from the perspective of another character. So it’s the same scene, but there’s a point of view shift.  

Lastly, rofl that they joke that Snoke will survive in the comic adaption- haaa!

After reading this interview, I think scenes like the new Rey, Finn and Poe on the MF after TLJ - recently published in a Poe Dameron comic can't be read into - Rey's attitude toward Poe and his ego could just be them trying to have fun with it.. JJ could go in this direction, or not. We'll see Very Happy

Does anyone know if the Padme book that was talked about last year will be released anytime soon?

I'm looking to read Ashley Eckstein's book, It's Your Universe: You Have The Power To Make It for my next read. It looks really good and I love books of the genre.

I bought the new Poe Dameron comic today (#27.) They talked about Kylo.

Rey: I just must have missed you (on Takodana.) I missed a lot. Starkiller base firing, the destruction of the Hosnian System. By the time you landed after the battle ... I was already being tortured by Kylo Ren on his ship.

Poe: He did that to me too! How about that! Torture buddies!

Rey: Torture ... buddies, okay, sure!

Yeah it's mostly just filler and i'm not bothered by the torture comments (as annoying as they are!), they're not going to step on the toes of episode 9 by showing Rey's real intentions and thoughts like "he tortured me but then i shipped myself to him and wanted to run off with him" lol. Also this is Poe's comic so he's getting the hero POV .

I like that Finn finally checks on Rose and Rey is like "yes great Smile", there go the jelousy accusations Wink

What’s funny is, by including that “torture buddies” line, this canon comic is making light of the “torture” some fans are screaming bloody murder about and declaring as being beyond the pale, lol.  Rolling Eyes I guess this proves it’s canon that Poe and Rey aren’t that traumatized by it if Poe is able to make such a flippant comment to Rey, and she’s willing to agree.

Poe comes across as a bit of a braggart in the earlier exchange and the torture buddies comment is a little cringeworthy. It doesn’t help that it looks like he’s about to spill his drink on her when he says it which gives it slight vibes of a cringey drunk guy trying to talk up a girl at a party, lol.

Apparently the 27th issue hints at Leia's possible death/retirement?

For me, this sort of thing just blows a huge hole into the supposed canon consistency across all media, and makes me realise that ancillary materials like this are filler that nobody at Lucasfilm cares enough about to even glance over.

If you think about it, TLJ already rendered the interrogation question moot. It wasn't addressed. It didn't matter to Rey one bit, so obviously she hadn't been "tortured", and she wasn't nursing a terrible trauma about the treeeee either.

Now, if we're supposed to think that she did feel Kylo tortured her, but was still mooning over his pretty eyes and wanting to hold his hand in TLJ, then I'm afraid that that's a level of WTF I'm not prepared to get into in my Star Wars.
