    Nah, its more like [face_dancing]. ;)

    So, a one-week article? I'm interested in how this will look: will it be in-universe like the Droids and Force, possibly in-universe (could be, but never explicitly stated) like the Mando article, or out-of-universe?

    Here's hoping for some good retcons/references. [face_coffee]

    Sounds like this could be a good one, although I bet wish they'd saved the Grievous cover from #83 for the next issue now lol.

    I hope it tells all the Jedi he's killed.

    Sweet. This should be a good issue. I believe this is also the issue that sees Pablo Hidalgo and Joe Corroney (with Dan Wallace!)returning to do a few more HoloNet News articles.

    Expect it to be more in the style of History of the Mandalorians.

    I?ve been thinking the exact same thing. :p

    This sounds cool. Is there any art in the article if yes who is doing it([face_praying] Joe[face_praying]).

    Hey Bootleg. There will be art, but Joe and I will probably not be working together on this one. Sad, I know. :(

    We did just turn in some new proposals together, though, so we'll be sure to let you know if any of those pan out.

    Take care,
    Abel

    It should probably hit subscribers around late September/early October.

    Well I'll be frinked. Finally a detailed biography on the origins of this being. I wonder if he had a first name, seeing how General just wouldn't work out for a kid's name. ;)

    Yes sir.

    I've given him one. In fact, there's quite a bit of new information on Grievous' pre-cyborg background. It's up to the editors now.

    Take care,
    Abel

    Hey Mr. Pena, long time no talkies :).

    I'm a big Grievous fan so I'm really looking forward to this one. I had to pick up the last few issues of Insider at the local Barnes and Noble when my Hyperspace ran out, but this is the last little push I needed to move resubscribing to the top of my priorities.

    I don't suppose you happen to nail down in the article exactly when the conflict between The Kaleesh and the Huk (I think those names are correct) took place? I've been wanting to know that since Labyrinth of Evil was first released.

    As always, thanks for taking the time to come here and chat with us.

    I hope the article has a timeframe from Grievous' accident and him turning into a cyborg!!! And a first name, wow (now I have to update all Grievous' entries in my timeline!!!)

    From Abel's blog:

    The Story of General Grievous is an origin piece. It will go into the whole Sifo-Dyas blood transfusion as well as the Huk War

    Yeah!!!!

    Hey Reverend!

    My pleasure. :)

    There'll be some clarification about the Huk War that should help nail it down, but no concrete dates this time.

    Take care,
    Abel

    Again, only vaguely. I was so busy trying to iron out the conflicts between Labyrinth of Evil and Visionaries, that I only had time to set up basic timeframes.

    That said, however, there should be a good amount of new info on the general.

    Take care,
    Abel

    So Abel, did you work in any pre-PT references (from like, say WEG or other older sources) dealing with Grievy?

    Was Grievous his real name, a translation of his name, or just a pseudonym he picked up?
