First question out of the gate: where does the first volume of the X-Wing Omnibus lie in the timeline? Nathan has singles whereas Mark has the Omnibus collection. Apparently there are some minor differences along the way. They talk about the different art styles used in the various stories. They discuss a movie character’s death in Rogue Leader.  Apparently Sullustan are the Red Shirts of the SWEU.
Mark points out that we see a different side to Tycho in Rogue Leader. Nathan and Mark both felt the second story in the Omnibus felt so off in style it was practically off-putting. Nathan mentions Derek Hobbie Klivian, which leads to a correction in printing. As well as some crazy in atmosphere flight tactics. They talk story arcs, character progression, fighter combat, and much, much more.
