This episode your hosts discuss:

  • 3 acts to the story
  • Fragmented- but not in a terrible way
  • gorgeous art – but sometimes hard to follow
  • enhancements vs Force – Flames from hands eh?
  • the light vs the dark – Star Wars vs Star Wars Darth Vader one seems to follow the rebels and the other vs the empire
  • does Vader suffer as a standalone?
  • interwoven stories to sell more?
  • be sure to read Vader 2nd, with the ongoing Star Wars line being your primary read
  • The decor of the imperial palace is impressive
  • the skeleton of the republic is gone- they have lost control…. which leaves Palpatine pissed.
  • Tagge lives!
  • Sidious brings in new baddies- Vader keeps things to himself at this point.
  • Vader demoted- doesn’t this diminish the Sith as an order to the empire at large?
  • Aphra -IS Indy Jones- check out her intro- even has the ball droid chase her like in Temple of Doom
  • A Tagge by any other name…. a look at past Marvel lines and Tagge


Once more your hosts cover entirely too much Skywalker as Vader action this episode. But don’t worry, give it a go; you’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you might even get a little education on Star Wars while you’re at it. But no matter how you slice it and dice it, you’ll be having another adventure Beyond the Films. So sit back, hang on, enjoy the show, and may the Force be with you!
