That's everything, but if you look for one shots then there are the c3po special and the two cross overs each start with their own issue; Vader down and screaming citadel...

Although not marvel, I also count darth maul son of dathomir as that is new cannon...you can buy it on the marvel app and is a good read

I've picked up all the action figure variant ones and read them all up to # 30, # 31 just arrived but as mentioned it's the second part of the Screaming citadel with 3 for due after it. I've enjoyed them all for the most part but the Yoda arc in the last few issues have taking me over the edge with it all and I'm now calling it a day with these.

For me it was mainly the action figure covers I was interested in and only really wanted the first 30 like my release carded figure collection. Of course it ended up being a few extra ones due to the extra variants they did but the Empire figure covers aren't quite the same as the first 10 released ESB figures on Palitoy cards so I can see that they're just going to keep going and some of the stories and artwork aren't quite what they used to be.

On the whole a fun series and I may buy the odd one just to get the mentioned covers to match the first 30 released figures but as I've had to have these all shipped to me it's to much money to spend each month for the fun I'm getting out of them now. If I want to carry on reading I'll just get the graphic novels form the library.

I agree the yoda arc was a huge disappointment and way over the top.... I hope we don't have that again! Usually I wouldn't get every issue and wait for graphic novels but as the comic comes with a free digital code for each issue its perfect. I get to read the comic on my tablet without having to worry about damaging the paper comic

I agree that the main Star Wars book has been very good by and large. I thought the leia and Han mini series were also very good.
Doctor Aphra has been excellent as much for the psychopathic droids as the main character.

Looking forward to the new Vader series which is out in June.

Marvel did stop the free digital download for a little while, I think Star Wars #28, 29, & 30 were missing them, they bought it back again recently for #31.

Also a few issues of Poe Dameron, Dr. Aphra and the first issue of Rogue One, bur Marvel have now reinstated the free downloads :D

Also for any Dr. Aphra fans who haven't seen this, there was a fan vote recently for an non-movie action figure to be made and she won the vote. Hopefully she'll come with the droids!

I need to read, Maul and Poe as well as the screaming citadel arch along with the 2 movie adaptions but I'm pretty impressed so far.

Ok guys that went well for a good start. Suggest we switch to Princess Leia mini-series before coming back to main SW title. Get reading! Love to read your thoughts.

To be clear, when I say I saw it, it was on a forbidden planet email... Not quite seen but I assume it is out tomorrow as those mailers always come out before comic book Wednesday releases.

Just gave in to a moment of weakness and bought two of the 'legacy' volumes (Rise of the Sith & Clone Wars), slippery slope as i will now be tempted to get the Old Republic and Legacy ones as those three together were the best Dark Horse runs. Of course i have all of them already but i am a sucker for a nice bound volume and i've been want to re-read the clone wars stuff since reading Dark Disciple a few weeks back...

Marvel really know how to package stuff up and milk the market :)

I've got a few of the Legacy TPBs. Some of the DH stuff was stellar. Some was crap though. Check out Crimson Empire and Dark Empire when you can
