Welcome to the Oblivion Bar where the first round is on me and the pretzels are free! Be warned: like the pickled eggs at the bar, this issue is going to get SPOILED rotten.

Im a DC guy. I’ve been following DC so close for the last 2.5 years reading so much. But throughout the past couple months, I’ve been catching up on my Marvel and one thing I’ve come to enjoy; it’s Thanos! more

The ultimate dream of liberal propaganda merchant must be to get people to buy their own propaganda. Here is an example. A very average story with (as usual) white people portrayed as evil racists and the liberal media lap it up. It's just not very good, but the barrage of hype surrounding the comic is such that weak minded liberals buy it.

It's a pretty solid first issue, I thought. The boyfriend isn't muslim (ie the person closest to Aisha), and he's portrayed positively. It's not that every white person is portrayed negatively, it's that you're fishing for a reason to avoid accepting other cultures.

Meh.

Nothing special about it in my opinion. Not at all a bad story, but also not an amazing one.

It's not supposed to do anything phenomenal; it's just to establish a relationship between Laura and Amber, which it doe well.

It's alright.

This series is awesome. But this issue is breaking what I deem to be continuity. Why would the troopers turn on Vader when a Jedi names him as Anakin? Why would Vader destroy the list of force sensitive? Dude, killed younglings in episode 3! Shit, he destroyed a whole village 3 issues ago. Maybe someone else can set me straight and explain why he'd destroy the list. Otherwise, this issue gets a lo more

I believe he destroyed the list because Jocasta said Sideous wanted to use it to make more apprentices, Vader already doesn't like the Inquisitors because he wants the only sith in the galaxy to be the both of them, so he decides to destroy the list so Sideous couldn't get it. At least that's my take away from it.

Sav - Mar 18, 2018

@VGCinema that seems the most reasonable and I hate it. I want to believe that Vader doesn't want to share Sideous because he views him as a source for true power. But, to me, Vader's always had this misplaced sense of loyalty. I fear he doesn't want to share Sideous because deep down he's still that whiney bitch, Anakin, and Sideous is a father figure to him.

The story is still nice, but this issue failed in my opinion. It definitely adds to the overall story and thickens the plot, but it's just poor; this is mainly because the dialogues/monologues come across as annoying, simply because they tell what we can already see, making it read like a children's book.
