Between new hope and empire strikes back. When does vader learn that the x wing pilot who blows up the death star is his son?

Yeah, I loved the way they did this in the new comics.

Or have a glass full of spare change near their beds. That they don't have.

The Vader comic is, on a monthly basis, the Darth Vader stories I've always wanted to read.

Been trade-waiting on Vader Down, though.

Anybody else feel like Secret Wars could have been done as six issue mini? Or, hell, even as a 48/64 page 1-shot?

Yes, and just about every other event crossover since Civil War...

The entirety of Secret War:

The universe is going to explode!

Doom saved some of it!

Mr. Fantastic shows up.

Doom: Oh, you think YOU could do better?

Mr. Fantastic: Yes.

Roll Credits.

All the other stuff that happens in the series means absolutely nothing to anything before or after the series. It may as well have been a What If type book. All the tie-in books mean nothing to the overall Marvel Universe and serve to expand a universe that's only supposed to span the duration of 9 (ultra-late) issues.

It's true, but we got some good stories out of it and it allowed the creators to do things without the burden of continuity. I really quite enjoyed Secret Wars.

Me too, although i feel it has kind of cut off some fun stuff mid flow - Uncanny Avengers for example i feel is a far far less interesting title post relaunch.

Or to put it another way: piss off inhuman.

I thought Time Runs Out and Secret Wars was the best event Marvel has ever done, and quite frankly a work of brilliance. (I include everything from Hickman's relaunch of Avengers and onwards as one big, unbelievably complex story)

I actually quit all Marvel Comics as a rite of passage after SW#9 and am now working on a Multiversal super-ultra-mega-poster as a fan-tribute to the story and to the Marvel Universe as a whole - now the story is over, and i cannot read until I have completed the poster...

...Except I soon will, cause this mother-f***er is too painful to work on anymore - bloody h*ll!!

I would say that has more to do with Rick Remender leaving Marvel Comics than anything else - the book is entirely dependent on the story-threads and premise that he set up - without him it's obviously not the same thing.
