Who was more essential in Luke's Jedi training?
Time

In the Original trilogy Young Luke is instructed by two of the most Famous Jedi in the Order's history. Yet if you had to choose between Ben Kenobi and Yoda, who taught Luke the most pivotal lessons and who was more essential to him becoming the Jedi he would be? Was it his first kinship with Kenobi and his relationship with his father, or was it his experiences with Yoda, his training on Dagobah, and his more expanded teachings in the force? How would Luke have turned out if he was training by one instead of the other

Design failures (and successes) of the PT
Time

Some of the environments during the scenes of Order 66 are amazing, especially the planet where Aayla Secura was gunned down. What I noticed in TPM during the scenes where Qui Gon, Jar Jar, and Padme are walking around Mos Espa was how poorly layered and how much the textures clashed with the spacers. They look like they stick out so much, and the when the Neimodian's speak how their words don't correspond to their mouths.

What do you HATE about the EU?
Time

I don't know if I agree on that one. Even in the earliest of EU works in particular Truce at Bakura, that's more or less exactly what the Rebellion sought to achieve after Endor. I understand that it would inevitably descend into decadence with opportunists like that Borsk F'eyla character, but what exactly were the planets supposed to do for governance afterward? Wouldn't the fabric for storytelling be a bit more difficult to tell with only sovereign planets? I don't know but the concept for the New Republic seems to go back a long way.

Vader need to fight someone who can elevate him since the retconning of the EU. I'm tired of hearing people in debates say Dooku or Mace is more skilled due to fighting more known people (Kenobi, Yoda, Anakin) due to the PT overexposure and repetitive fights he had in the TCW series. He needs to kill Ventress or Maul or someone..

That Black R2 astromech was amazing, and that duo of the torture droid and that evil astromech is a good parody. Next issue Vader encounters the two rivals Palpatine has in a potential duel, is it because of the decrease in trust between the Sith? Palpatine in all depictions of the EU seemed to tire of Vader towards ESB-ROTJ.

ESB Obi Wan scene
Time

In the scene where Luke is about to leave to Bespin, Obi wan says he doesn't want lose Luke like he lost to Vader on Mustafar. But did he really mean that as he more or less abandoned Vader to burn up and die instead of killing him for good? He also says he wouldn't help Vader fight Luke, which is odd as he helped Luke destroy the first Death star. How does one interpret that scene given Ben's inconsistency in essentially abandoning Vader to die a slow roasting death?

I think the new Vader comics will have a nice bridge between OT and maybe some newer things added to the mix. I saw a promo art earlier and its rumored Vader might end up fighting Ahsoka Tano, and overall at least my impression from the first issue is they're trying to stay faithful to the OT. The settings and stuff are all familiar, and the writers are at least attempting to show the rift between The Emperor and Palpatine that was hinted at int he movies. I'm eager to see what happens.
