After reading a post by SX Glory at agwc which mentioned Mark Hamill's Black Pearl comic series, I decided to nose around Dark Horse's web site and read up on it. I found an interesting quote from an old interview with Mark regarding a character from the comic... thusly, I'm off to try and find the book itself. Here's the quote: "I always like being on firm ground as far as writing about what you know. The reason I felt emboldened to write about someone who was once involved in the adult film industry was because I worked with an actress who had been a pornographic film star. I did that on Wing Commander. So I was fascinated by the way it could happen to someone who regrets that decision and tries to get on with her life. She seemed much more well adjusted about it than, for instance, the crew, who couldn't get over it!"
