In my circle, my disdain for broccoli is pretty well known. I call them “tiny trees” and I don’t like their smell, their taste, or their texture – but I have eaten them. That’s how I know I don’t like them.
Recently, Dark Horse Comics finally announced the new Star Wars project that Jan Duursema and I are working on.
