“The story of the mandalorian ticks so many boxes of things I’m passionate about,” Barnes told StarWars.com. “I love westerns, fantasy, sci-fi, comedy, drama…this is a dream gig for any writer. I’m just happy to have been chosen for this mission!
“I’ve always thought that an artist’s style was very much like writing in shorthand. It’s very subjective. What I bring to star wars is my detail and my love for a galaxy far, far away,” adds Jeanty. “star wars, especially when it comes to bounty hunters, is a messy landscape. I love drawing all the little details. My look has always been about the details, and with The Mandalorian there’s so much going on with the character and behind the scenes, and I can’t wait to visually add to the already rich tapestry that makes up this universe!
