    Default Screaming Citadel

    Any thoughts on this current storyline? It sort of feels a bit like Dark Horse's Vector storyline a little bit, in the sense that it's Star Wars meets some horror elements (although in this case, the action is limited strictly to the OT instead of spread through the different eras like that was), with the characters dealing with a vampiric Queen.


    The Yoda story that ended recently seemed a bit "meh" to me, but this one seems to be a bit more fun, especially with the Aphra/Luke interaction.

    Yeah, this one is pretty good. I like the Aphra/Luke team up too. And Checchetto's art is very good.

    I liked Vader down, which was the only other crossover so far if memory serves. This one is just ok for me so far. I'm starting to wonder why any of them trust Dr Aphra with anything at this point.

    Have we even got an explanation how Aphra found Luke to begin with at that bar?

    Han's "wife" told her because apparently she owes Aphra something.

    This story had a strong start, as I really liked the subtle horror elements but the recent entries have just felt like action set piece, after action set piece which gets boring fast.

    It didn't get any better sadly, I loved the start but it got worse as it went.

    I think Vader Down and the first Vader series set the bar REALLY high. I get that they're trying something different but it's not working very well. It's not bad but it's not good either.

    It could have worked, I liked the horror mood they created in the first part but they lost that moodiness and didn't give us anything to replace it with, and they didn't stick the end either. I mean, we all knew Luke wasn't going to get any serious Jedi training out of this as he was still a relative amateur in Empire before meeting Yoda but it should have been more insightful than it was.
