When Richard Kelly started to build the eventual template for the Southland Tales universe, be it intentional or not, he borrowed a huge play from the old school Star Wars playbook. The story consisted of six chapters, and much like George Lucas had in his heyday, Kelly started telling the story of Boxer Santoros, Krysta Now and Ronald/Roland Taverner’s whacked-out world with the final three installments. But the big difference between that galaxy far, far away and this particular universe was that, from the beginning, those first three episodes did exist on paper. And thanks to filmmaker and all-around geek Kevin Smith, this trilogy of graphic novels was printed, allowing for the foundation of Southland Tales‘ ultimate version to be built.
