As many SW comic fans know by now, Knights of the Old Republic is ending at issue #50. Some one over at Dark Horse made the announcement earlier this week. I know it's going to be sad for some people-- after all, we've lived with these characters for nearly 4 years now. But I don't actually see the end as a bad thing. I think that stories should have an end, that all series should be finite. Our characters deserve stories that aren't re-hashed ideas where we're just trying to fill 22 pages every month.

I was fortunate enough to have started the series, designed most of the characters, vehicles, etc., and hopefully evolved as a storyteller during my time on KotOR. I may not have drawn all the issues but I always felt like Zayne and co. were my babies. Actually I think the 4 of us all felt this way-- Jeremy Barlow, Mike Atiyeh, and of course JJM (who has spent more time with these characters than anyone!).

I finished isse #49 earlier today and hope you guys don't mind me sharing a little teaser with you.

On to #50!
