On Saturday at New York Comic Con I went to the panel I'll Take Dementors for $500, Obi-Wan: A Fan Game Show with (left to right) Marc Thompson, Delilah S. Dawson, Sylvain Neuve, Ryan North, and Chuck Wendig.



Here is the gist:
Quote:
Do you know the whole DC universe by their legal names? ID a Star Wars villain from a single wicked line? Name every kind of Bertie Bott’s Every Flavor Beans? Test your knowledge, competing alongside bestselling authors in categories like The Dark Side, Bad@ss Chicks, Winter Is Coming and more, using clips from Star Wars, Game of Thrones and Harry Potter audiobooks. Narrator Marc Thompson hosts in character as Obi-Wan Kenobi and will select a few lucky audience members to compete onstage.
While Marc was dressed as Obi-Wan, he didn't do his voice the whole time. The game was played like Jeopardy! and the categories were The Dark Side; Expecto Patronum; Winter Is Coming; Fierce Females; I Can Be Your Hero, Baby; and Nerd-Tastic.

It was really fun to watch. My favorite categories were The Dark Side and Expecto Patronum. For some reason they weren't picking Winter Is Coming until nearly the end. If none of the players knew the answer the audience would shout it out and the first one to buzz in got to answer it. In the end Delilah's team won.

There was a short Q&A afterwards. The part that interested me most was when Marc Thompson was talking about the process of recording an audiobook. He'll get the book and make notes, and also record some new voices on his phone to refer to. As he gets more into the recording process he will be so used to doing the new voices he won't need to refer to his voice memo.

Marc doesn't talk to the authors because he has a director and doesn't want to go over the director's head by saying, "Well, the author said this."

He was complemented on how great he sounds but Marc gave the credit to the editors who piece it together when he makes mistakes, as well as the music and sound effects they add when it's a Star Wars novel.

As for the voice of Thrawn, I guess he did a different voice for the anniversary edition of the Thrawn Trilogy, because that was before Rebels. I still have to listen to it. But for the two most recent books he really captured the his voice from the animated series.

I can't remember this other question or full answer now, but Chuck said that Palpatine's first name "Sheev" is like "Steve" in AGFFA. That made me laugh.

After the panel there was a signing with the authors right outside the room, which was super convenient. We didn't have to run and push our way to another part of the Javits.

This time I brought From a Certain Point of View with me. I told each author how I plan to slowly collect every author's signature until I am old.

First Chuck Wendig signed. He wrote "We Don't Serve Their Kind Here", which is about Wuher, the bar tender at the cantina. He is very much the grump he appears to be in the movie, and his hate for droids is not just economical, it's personal.

When I said that Chuck agreed and said that is probably what they were thinking back then, that droids can't buy any drinks so they are not allowed in, but in light of the Prequels and the there was something to delve deeper into.

Delilah S. Dawson wrote "The Secrets of Long Snoot", about Garindan ezz Zavor, the snitch who tells the stormtroopers which direction the droids headed. But we find out what his motivations are. This story's character building was well done.

I told her how I still want to read Kill The Farm Boy. She suggested I listen to it on audiobook. I responded that I am more into audiobooks now and have been listening to Deathly Hallows, and that I loved that category. She said she felt she knew the most about that one.

Marc Thomson signed both FaCPOV and Thrawn: Alliances. I asked him more about the recording process and was amazed how fast the turn over is. He gets the book about a week or two before he goes in to record. They record the whole book in about 3-4 days, from about 10am-6pm. This is about a month before the release of the book so there is time to edit it. These days with computers it all happens really fast.

Signatures: Delilah is above the title, Marc is to the left. Chuck is below the title and above Pierce Brown's. I decided to keep this book not personalized so that it doesn't say my name 40-something times.

I like the Obi-Wan one.


Star Wars Adventures: Tales from Vader’s Castle creative team wanted Dooku to look like Dracula

Quote:
From StarWars.com:

"From the cave on Dagobah in The Empire Strikes Back to visions of Sith spectres in The Clone Wars animated series, Star Wars has long been strong with the spooky side of the Force. That’s never been more apparent, or more beautifully celebrated, than in IDW Publishing’s current five-issue comic book miniseries Star Wars Adventures: Tales from Vader’s Castle. The story follows a rebel crew that crash-lands on maybe the creepiest of all Star Wars locales: Mustafar, the lava planet that’s also home to Darth Vader’s towering castle on a (molten) hill. As the ragtag group tries to survive the world’s harsh conditions and make their way into the imposing structure, they share scary stories from across the timeline of Star Wars. It’s perfect for Halloween season, and something that fans of all ages can enjoy. Issue #3 arrives today, and StarWars.com is celebrating the comic series’ midpoint in spooktacular fashion — we’ve asked series writer Cavan Scott to take us inside Vader’s Castle, as it were, showing us the process from script to finished page, complete with his own commentary and a first look at what horrors await in issues #4 and #5. Enjoy…if you dare! [...]


Tales from Vader’s Castle #2: “Count Dooku: Prince of Darkness” – Page 10

[...] “I have always loved Kelley Jones’s Batman art, so when Mike [Siglain of Lucasfilm] told me that Kelley was providing the art for issue 2, I was over the moon. This is the issue that started it all. Mike and I are both big Hammer Horror fans and so he knew what he was doing when he suggested doing a Halloween special featuring Christopher Lee’s Star Wars character. Originally, we thought about riffing off Frankenstein, but looking back it always had to be Dracula. The script includes the description: ‘DOOKU has never looked more like Dracula!’ to which Mike added a note ‘Go to town, Kel!’ That last panel is pure Hammer.”

Frightening fun facts:

“The planet Bray is named after Bray Studios, Hammer’s legendary studios where many of its most famous horrors were filmed, including Dracula: Prince of Darkness.”"
