Paul McQue

    North Sea Correspondent (Jedi News)

    When Paul isn't working on a ship in the North Sea he likes to travel to as many Star Wars (and LOST) events and locations as possible.

    He's often found roaming convention floors cosplaying as Bad Robot. His love for J.J. Abrams' Bad Robot started when he became addicted to the TV show LOST and when his two fandoms collided to make The Force Awakens he had to pinch himself. When he wore his Bad Robot costume at Star Wars Celebration Essen for the first time Kathy Kennedy stopped a Lucasfilm meeting to have a picture taken with him. Kathy then told Paul that she was going to email the pictures to J.J. Abrams. Paul may or may not have wet himself a just little bit.

    The sight of Bib Fortuna still freaks him out the same as it did when he was 6 years old watching Return of the Jedi in the cinema. Only these days he doesn't need to run out of the room and miss all of the first act.

    His love for R2-D2 (the true hero of the Galaxy) and now BB-8 influences what clothes he puts on each day.

    There's nothing that makes him happier than enjoying a few drinks with friends he's met through social media at conventions and events. If you see him at a bar tell him you read this and he'll buy you a blue milk.

    Brian is an obsessive collector of Star Wars books, comics, and magazines. With a collection extending into the tens of thousands, he is obsessed by variants, and the more obscure a publication the better! Brian was the Literature Editor for Jedi News, and was also host of the podcast Take Cover on the Jedi News Network until August 2017. Brian stepped down from Jedi News in August 2017 for personal reasons. At the end of October 2017 he was part of the team that launched Fantha Tracks.
