New ‘Star Wars’ Comic Coming From Matt Kindt and Dark Horse

 

SWREHE-TPB-CVR-4X6-SOL-f39f5Matt Kindt creator of the psychic espionage comic book series Mind MGMT, will be writing a new Star Wars mini series from Dark Horse. Titled “Star Wars: Rebel Heist”, the series will premiere in Spring. Comic Book Resources has the scoop.

Excerpt:

CBR News: Much has been made out of your busy writing schedule as of late, so presumably a “Star War” miniseries was something you were uniquely interested in. Are you a big Star Wars fan?

Matt Kindt: Yeah, I was like 4 or 5 when the first one came out. That was one of my earliest memories, seeing it in the theater, and people being dressed up in the theater — the theater workers were actually dressed up. It’s kind of a scary memory, because I was pretty young, but it definitely stuck with me. [Laughs]

I’ve always been a fan. [Dark Horse] asked me if I wanted to do something, and I was like, “I don’t know” — partly because I’m so busy. “Man, I really don’t have time, as much as I want to do it.” I need to learn how to say no. I was like, “This is going to be a good test for me, if I say no to writing a Star Wars comic, which is ridiculous,” because growing up with it I was like, “Man, that would be my dream come true.”

I got myself into such a busy schedule this summer, so I told them no. Then, the next day, I was taking a shower or something, and I just had an idea. “That’s what I could do!” I wasn’t trying to think of an idea for it; an idea just popped into my head. So I called them back the next day. “If it can’t be this, I don’t know if I have time to think of another thing.” They were really great about it.
