Earlier today at New York Comic Con, Lucasfilm hosted a special panel focused on their upcoming books and comics.  The panel was moderated by Michael Siglain, the creative director of Lucasfilm publishing, and featured eleven authors who had written Star Wars books and comics.  The authors discussed their history with Star Wars and shared some behind the scenes stories about working on Star Wars.  Below are my tweets from the panel.

Ben Blacker, co-writer of the Join the Resistance young readers books and the upcoming Marvel comics one-shot tie-in to The Last Jedi, titled Storms of Crait,
Christian Blauvelt author of Star Wars Made Easy from DK Publishing,
