    Default Star Wars forum

    With the end of Miles Morales: Ultimate Spider-Man and just the Ultimate End mini series remaining, which is tied to Secret Wars, the line is pretty much dead by now.

    I'm wondering if that sub-forum wouldn't be better used for Marvel's Star Wars comics, which is a growing line not directly related to the rest of the Marvel Universe and which is becoming a bigger deal with new series coming out like the prequel for Episode VII.

    Any chance that can happen? The Ultimate Marvel sub-forums just feels like a waste sometimes and Star Wars could use the space for focused discussion.

    There does not appear to be enough Star Wars traffic on the Marvel forum to support a Marvel's Star Wars comics forum at this time.

    Default Please create a Star Wars comics forum

    This would be the place to discuss Star Wars comics, regardless if they are original Marvel, Dark Horse or current Marvel.

    Having them lumped in with all the other Marvel comics is the wrong way to do it.

    Kind of interesting because I was wanting to ask a question about an old star wars comic and wasn't sure where to ask.

    Default Dear CBR please give us a Star wars forum here.....

    I dont know about all you guys and girls but I think its time we got a Star Wars forum so we can talk about the comics here. I know there are other places that we can talk about Star Wars but Id like one here so we can talk about other marvel titles without having to leave the CBR website. These titles are selling so well. There is so much positive stuff to look forward to (Shattered Empire # 1 due 2nd September, Vader down crossover) in addition to more stories in the SW. Kanan and DV Ongoings.

    Please a SW forum here would be great.

    Thank you

    Why would you have to leave the CBR website to talk about other Marvel titles?
    Aren't people talking about Marvel titles on the Marvel sub-section (http://community.comicbookresources....-Marvel-Comics) of the Forums? And aren't there threads in that section devoted to Star Wars titles (which are now produced by Marvel)?

    More people talk about the Star Wars movies than the Star Wars comics, IMO.

    If you want something even resembling a chance for a Star Wars forum, you need activity to back it up. Marvel Star Wars comics can currently be discussed on the Marvel forum.

    Yeah, not sure why we kept an "Ultimates" forum with CBRs relaunch, even before it was decided to fold it into the 616 activity was way down (and a lot of that traffic seemed to be the off-topic thread.) A Star Wars forum (or even a return of the separate Avengers forum) seems to be a better idea to have on the boards than that.

    I don't know if there's really a benefit to a separate Avengers forum sub-section . . . how do you decide which characters should be discussed there instead of in the general Marvel section? (Hell, how many current / recent Marvel characters who haven't been X-Men have never been Avengers, either?)

    Well you could limit it to the ones that have the word "Avengers" in the title, Marvel churns out enough of that product as it is. (New, ANAD, Secret, World, etc. etc.) and perhaps founders and long time members (Cap, Wasp, Hawkeye. etc.)

    But it doesn't have to be "Avengers," I'm just pointing out that bringing back the "Ultimates" forum when the board was reset was rather pointless. Those titles could have been just as easily folded into the "Marvel Comics" sub forum. (Or Spider-Man, since Miles book was really the only thing sticking anyways.)

    It's just a shame that Star Wars posts as well as other non-Marvel Universe stuff (Stephen King's Dark Tower, etc.) tend to get completely buried under the hundreds upon hundreds of character "appreciation threads." If someone does post about something non-MU, chances are it's on page 2 or 3 within an hour.

    Hell, get rid of Ultimates and bring back the X-Men appreciation board, free up some of that forum for actual discussion that doesn't revolve around how great "Chamber" is.

    Not sure where some people are getting the idea that a set number of forums are needed at all times, and that if one disappears another must rise to take its place.

    I would love it if we had a designated Star Wars forum. Sometimes, individual Star Wars threads get lost on the main Marvel board and I just kind of give up looking for them... :/

    Subscribing to threads would help you keep track of them.
