50 in 50: The Phantom Menace 3D Character Countdown: Day 45: Vos Populi
Yesterday's character, posted today because Imperial Slicer Droids attacked my holo-transceiver, focuses on a character that appears in the background of Star Wars: The Phantom Menace.
Comic book bad boy and TCW surfer dude Quinlan Vos, the Kiffar with a flair for the Dark Side makes a fleeting appearance in Mos Espa.
While the portrayal of Vos in The Clone Wars animated series seemed a little weird, fans of the Dark Horse comics are pretty strong in their affinity for the character. It is interesting to see how the comic creators Ostrander and Duursema to the appearance of a random background character and used it for the character they were developing.
For more on the creation of Vos and his characters interesting past, visit Wookieepedia.
Today's character countdown will appear later tonight. Stay tuned as we visit the rest of the top 50 characters leading to the film's release.
