The first issue of Star Wars: The Clone Wars Magazine launches on Tuesday, October 5th and will include the 8-page comic strip "The Droid Deception," featuring Mace Windu and Obi-Wan Kenobi. Starwars.com chats with writer Robin Etherington and artist Andres Ponce about "The Droid Deception" in a Q&A that you can check out here. Excerpt below...
Who's your favorite character in The Clone Wars universe to write for?
Robin Etherington: I'm a big fan of supporting characters and I like mixing things up. I've now written stories featuring every main cast member but it's the clones themselves that keep winning me over. Not Just Rex and Cody but the grunts as well. Their constant bravery in the face of overwhelming odds and their ongoing struggle for individuality are extremely compelling characteristics.
Have you found that there's a particular character that you most enjoy drawing?
Andres Ponce: I think that I'm in love with Ahsoka. I really enjoy drawing her fighting with droids.
What would be your ideal Star Wars: The Clone Wars story to illustrate?
Andres Ponce: I'd like to draw Anakin and Ahsoka on Hoth, the ice planet, or on some weird jungle planet.
