Comics With Kenobi #38

It’s an extra-special special episode as we sit down with Alex Ray and Jim Mello, co-creators of the wildly popular and strikingly imaginative A Star Wars Comic to mark the completion of a year’s worth of stories and tales from a galaxy far, far away in our respective head canon.

For us, it’s been a shared road, given our love for Star Wars comics. It was in January 2017 that we spoke with them ahead of the first comic and having Jim and Alex’s effort has been exceedingly satisfying month in and month out.

They’ve taken us — and you — from one end of the Star Wars galaxy to another, introducing new characters alongside with old favorites.

For Fans Jim Mello and Alex Ray, Their ‘A Star Wars Comic’ Promises New Tales, Intrigue and More Every Month

While their time on screen was short, it was impressive, but the screenplay allowed for scant detail about the egg mates’ origins, thinking and devotion to the Rebellion.

That’s changed, thanks not to just the assorted books, from the official novel adapting the film or the excellent Rogue One: A Visual Guide.

For Jim Mello and Alex Ray, it wasn’t enough. The pair were so intrigued by Benthic Two Tubes that they seized upon the idea of a six-page comic about the Tognath and, in the process, have created a fan-made ode to not just the character, but to Star Wars, too.
