    Personally, for me–Vader and Luke is THE most important relationship in Star Wars. Full stop. I love that the story group is clearly all about it. I really appreciate in general how geared towards the universe of the films the main title comic and the Darth Vader one are in particular–as somebody who only really dipped her toe into the EU (and didn’t like most of what she found because it didn’t seem to bear much resemblance to the FILM SERIES) it’s rather refreshing.

    Vader and Luke don’t actually get that much time on-screen together, considering how their relationship is really what the two trilogies hinge on; I think showing the parallels and how they’re two sides of the same coin in many ways is a nice way of thematically connecting father and son.

      Hi Ieyre – you bring up a great point about how Luke and Vader really don’t have much time onscreen together, and yet the two of them are the emotional center of the original trilogy. I’m like you, I didn’t get very deep into the EU at all, though mostly because I couldn’t keep up with it. But I don’t get the sense that much of the EU at all touched on their relationship, or put them “onscreen” together the way that we’re already getting with the rebooted canon. Thank you so much for your comment!
