Matt Kindt Has a Thing About Paper

Reading last week’s books, I found an amusing bit in two comics released last week from writer Matt Kindt.

From the first page of Star Wars: Rebel Heist #1…


From the third page of Rai #1…


Well, it amused ME, at least.


well anyone who has read Mind Mgmt knows that books is absolutely meant to be read on paper as it takes the fullest advantage of the print format.

I thought that was funny as well. It jumped out at me too since those were the only two comics I picked up last week.

I think it was in the Star Wars RPG core rules book that I got when it first came out, but it said that there was no paper in the SW universe. This was the first instance I’ve seen it in a Star Wars story, so it was a speed bump in the story to me.

Tony, I thought the same thing, too. I had never heard a mention of paper in anything Star Wars-related and wondered if it even existed in their universe.

I’m going to start stockpiling paper in a vault so my descendants will be rich some day!

Won’t help. That was a long, long time ago.

Ah, man. It was appropriate that I almost wrote ancestors then, I guess, although that wouldn’t work for obvious reasons. I don’t even know how I’d get it to a galaxy far far away either.

Right, there is not supposed to be paper at all in the Star Wars universe. In some of the later EU books they’ve moved away from that, but even then, they call it “flimsy” rather than “paper”.

Well, Rai is in, like, the year 4000, so you can stockpile for those descendants, joshschr. (Dammit, your screen name is hard to spell!)

We’ve been over this, Travis. It’s harder to introduce myself. I usually go by Josh, but I introduce myself as Joshua Schroeder, so people don’t think my name is Josh Raider. You can call me j-dizzle, if you feel the need to address me at all.

For what possible reason would you not want people to call you “Josh Raider”? That’s awesome!
