Teased at the recent Comic-Con International, StarWars.com presented today the cover art. Karen Traviss’s e-novella, A Practical Man, comes out next month from Del Rey.
Here’s what Traviss had to say about the book during a publishing panel at Comic-Con International:
“Why did the Mandalorians side with the Yuuzhan Vong? What were they thinking? They’re not stupid, they had to have their reasons, and that was the gap I wanted to fill. It’s actually not what it seems. And the title, A Practical Man, is a reference to an obscure song that I’m not very sure few people would have heard in the UK. It’s about sticking to what you believe.”
The cover artist is Steven D. Anderson; the illustration is based on a recent publicity still.
