Writer: Rob Williams
Artist: Dustin Weaver

Darth Vader successfully lures Luke Skywalker and Princess Leia into a trap that could cripple the Rebel Alliance, as "Vector"-the most important Star Wars event of 2008-concludes its third arc, setting the stage for the final galaxy-shaking showdown in Star Wars: Legacy!
On the dark surface of a desolate moon, Luke and Leia meet their first Jedi since Obi-Wan Kenobi, only to realize too late this Knight of the Old Republic is far different than their fallen friend--twisted by the Sith's Muur Talisman and enraged by Darth Vader! Together, Luke and Leia must make a choice with far-reaching consequences, not just for themselves, but for the fate of the entire galaxy!

There you have it. Rebellion #16. It's the last issue of Rebellion for a while so check it out... after checking out #15 of course.

So I got back home to Portland from the San Diego Comic Con the other night. What a great show it was. It was crazy as usual. Most of my time was spent face down doing commissions, which I wouldn't have any other way. I really wanted to thank everyone who stopped by my table. I really enjoyed talking comics and art with everyone. I also wanted to thank Christina Strain for being an awesome artist alley neighbor, and of course my lovely fiancee, Lauren, for helping me at the table.
While I was busy trying to keep up with the commissions a guy came up to me and asked for a quick head sketch. I was in between commissions and I knew I could do a quick head sketch before starting the next commission so I said sure. Then he busted out a video camera and told me he would post it on youtube. So no pressure right? I was torn the whole time I drew it with how finished I should to make it. I also wanted to do it pretty quick so that it was watchable on youtube... Anyway here it is.
I've also done an interview with EU that you can check out here: EU Cantina Interview
... So there you go. Lot's of stuff:)


  1. Hey, Dustin, I'm a huge fan of your artwork, especially KOTOR-related :)
    I wonder, could you please confirm that the two-suns world in the flashback is in fact Ossus?

  2. I can nether confirm nor deny it. But I will say that it did not specify in the script that it be Ossus. I think the script called for an "alien world" that should be beautiful to show the contrast between now and then. I think the 2 suns thing is just something I did to echo the scene in A New Hope, because it's beautiful, and because it nicely contrasts with the world she is now on with no sun... But, some continuity happens by accident and really it's up to future writers to decide.
