As promised, feel the force of the best material of the new EU. In this arc, Vader faces down the Empire's version of Sherlock Holmes, kills lots of people and experiences a few subtle feels.

Nope. OC. Did Thrawn ever appear in TCW? Otherwise, I'm thinking he's no longer canon.

Mileage may vary on the art, but it's Larocca doing an existing IP, so I don't mind the occasional tracing.

Anyone think Vader will appear as an antagonist in Rogue One? I'd be into it a small role, depending on how well-written it is. He's got to be unstoppable and mysterious.

My favorite thing about this series (other than the Vader characterization, obviously) is how it has reconstituted the Prequels and brought them into line with his portrayal in the OT.

"Mary sue"? You mean Vader? He begins the series by getting dressed down and losing his station. He's also constantly getting caught up in lies by Aphra and Thanoth. He's conflicted. How is he a Mary Sue?

I think the closest analogy I can make for this series is it's Star Wars as a "Difficult Man" cable drama. All these scenes with Thanoth work off the same tension that was present in sections of Breaking Bad, Mad Men and The Sopranos where our anti-hero tries to manage and conceal his various deceptions and compartmentalize his dealings.

Thanks for the storytime. It's a great book. Thanks for taking the time.

>>77947000
>Vader realizes this might be the son he never knew he had
>the dialogue in Empire contradicts this
Great, now they aren't even trying.
>>
>>77951010
He was the one guy on the Death Star who spoke out about it being venerable and then left before it went off to Yavin and got blown up.

He has a history of not being retarded up to this point.
>>
>>77950266
Yeah, I would go ahead and do the issues, but in typical crossover fashion, not much has happened yet. I'm also not a huge fan of the Deodato art in the "Vader Down" one-shot and the SW title.
>>
>>77951026
He calls him "Skywalker" in the first act of Empire. Vader is also clearly established as working to undermine the Emperor in his dialogue with Luke...
>>
>>77951026
In TESB Vader already knew full well that Luke was his son long before he and Sheev had their little chat.

The thing with Vader is he considers his past self to be dead, but Luke is still his son, so in front of the Emperor he'll play up the "my past self is dead" and say Luke is Anakin's kid rather than "my" kid to make the Emperor think he's still loyal.

He also acts surprised, but it was pretty clear he wasn't during that chat in TESB, otherwise he'd have been far angrier in that scene.

It's basically sith games where they all know everything but pretend they know nothing until one of them says something.

>>77951184
This. If anything, the comic rebuilds the ESB scene ever since ROTJ added the element of Sheev lying the entire time to Vader. Now that Vader knows about Luke before ESB, his reaction in the movie comes off as more quietly scheming than, well, this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6L8b1zPE0-Y

Imperial credits apparently look like little strips of gold.
>>
>>77955636
Weird. I always thought they would look more like computer chips or something, rather than gold pressed latinum.
>>
>>77955654
I think TCW showed that republic credits looked like that.

That was the first time I can remember credits ever being shown as a physical thing.
>>
>>77948693
She's torturing some innocent guy just because she's curious about Padme's past?

Bitch needs to die.
>>
>>77956064
Vader's orders.
He needs her to confirm that the baby survived.

And that guy is a pretty tough old man, he told them what they wanted to hear and left out any hint about Leia.

I bet Vader would've lost his shit big time if he found out how close he came to killing both his kids multiple times.
>>
>>77947194

Missed a page OP
>>
>>77948342

and bumping for later

This was great, thanks.

all the tracing is a little distracting

Okay guys, I'm going to be watching all star wars movies with in the next 2 weeks (1-7 + Clone Wars.) so I expect a full on "Read List" of the Star Wars comics by the end of the marathon
>>
>>77958118
I'd say just read the current ongoings Disney is putting out and the Old Republic series. Post movie stuff is mostly weird and/or bad like Luke's son being a mary sue most powerful jedi ever.
>>
>>77951184
In the context of the events of ROTS, there's no way Vader wouldn't be hella pissed after that conversation if he didn't know. The way that scene is acted and directed, it's clearly meant to be read the way you describe. Everyone knows what's up.
>>
>>77958108
I hate it. You can always tell which scene they're stealing it from.
>>
>>77952249
Lots of great callbacks to the PT. It effortlessly weaves in explanation for seeming discrepancies (the context he creates for the ESB scene with Vader and Sheev actually makes that moment sing in a whole different way) and his OC's and concepts nicely marry original trilogy and prequel trilogy designs/sensiblities. See the Akbar-Grievous mash-up, for example.

Moreover, I would argue that the Vader of his first six issues feels closer to the demonstrative and extroverted zealot of A New Hope while after the Luke revelation in issue 6, he goes cold and laser focused, like the robotic, unstoppable force of nature that is Vader in Ep 5.
>>
>>77956177
Good point about Leia.
>>
>>77956064
>She's torturing some innocent guy just because she's curious about Padme's past

If the droids aren't a big enough giveaway. She is pretty much in sjw/tvtropes terms a dark Padme expy.
>>
>>77959558
>>sjw/tropes
That's basically what the new Star Wars is becoming. It isn't for fans, it's for anyone Disney can sell to. They want money and they don't care who it comes from.
>>
>>77958696
Yeah, Vader was just a big ball of anger from the time of Padme's death to finding out his son is alive. Like he just didn't care about anything anymore or had no real motivation and was just angry all the time without really focusing it wholeheartedly.

Then BAM he finds out he has a living son and all that anger became more focused than the Death Star firing off a planet destroying round.
>>
>>77948443

Aphra is the mary sue character. Clearly a chracter that some fangirl who likes Vader and Han Solo would come up with, not very creative.
>>
>>77962045
>>77956064
>>77959558
She's going to die, theres no swj or mary sue here. There have been too many death flags for her, its over
>>
>>77962045
She is not a Mary Sue. She is a reflection of Vader and the shift in Anakin/Vader. Much like Obi-Wan/Padme/the Droids were his companions in the PT. Palpatine/Aphra/BBT/000 are their dark reflections in the dark times of the OT.
>>

Is the rest of Marvel's SW as good?

>>77947817
[fucks internally]
>>
>>77975130

Lando books were good, Lobot is the ultimate Bro.
>>
>>77975130
I would ignore Aaron's SW because it's adequate at best, but Lando is grandiose, Leia is just okay (feels like an 80's feel good movie), Chewbacca isn't spectacular but fairly readable, and Kanan is just great.
