Nothing says "Happy Valentine's Day" like Darth Vader. 
 
Vader Down! The SWNU crew break down the first Marvel Star Wars mega crossover series by Jason Aaron, Kieron Gillen, Mike Deodato, and Salvador Larroca. In this episode we'll focus on the last 3 issues of the series; Darth Vader #14, Star Wars #13, and Darth Vader #15. Then we read listener feedback and respond to several more Force Awakens fan theories, arguing on the podcast, and much more. 

This podcast has tons of spoilers. 

Overall Synopsis: 

Stemming directly out of the Darth Vader comic, Vader Down gives us Vader flying to **** to capture the rebel who blew up the Death Star "Skywalker". It turns out that Karban, a mon-cal cyborg/agent of palpatine, had set Vader up to either be killed by Rebels or to help Karban succeed in HIS mission of finding the rebel who blew up the Death Star. In a truly comic book style crossover, all the characters from Vader Down and the Star Wars book mash up on this planet to duke it out.
