    Palpatine mentions in the first issue of the arc that Jocasta, as librarian of the Order, was privy to “not just secrets of the Light Side of the Force. The Dark Side, as well. Secrets that were not [hers] to keep. Secrets even of the ancient Sith,” which seem to have been lost to Papatine and his immediate predecessors.

    Oh, right. I forgot about that line. There's my answer then, Palp's wanted to learn as much as he could about Jocasta's secrets, and the list of children was a bonus.

    A Jedi fomenting rebellion on Mon Calamari and causing Vader to invade the planet? This series just keeps delivering. Amazing. Maybe it'll be Bultar Swan or Quinlan or Coleman Kcaj. Hoping it's not somebody completely new, though it probably will be to make them aquatic.

    Any chance you could let us know why Jocasta wasn't in the Temple during Knightfall?

    Accipiter was making a joking response to Star for that pun ("marvelous"), not saying Star has bad taste in art.

    Yikes.

    Still not getting it. The GIF of Cary Grant has nothing to do with the joke.

    Who publishes the comics?
    Marvel.

    What was said?
    Those covers are “Marvel”ous.

    The pun was the compliment. There is zero comment on the quality of the art itself.

    It’s not funny when it has to be explained.

    Jocasta Nu may have succeeded in wiping the Jedi Archives clean, but there are a large number of Force artifacts and repositories left in the Temple. We saw a few of them in the Vault and I'm certain that's not the only secret chamber in that Archive. Jocasta may have wiped the computers clean but knowledge remains in the Temple. And the information in the databases may not be gone forever. After all, Anakin Skywalker was brilliant with all machines. What Jocasta erased, Darth Vader may be able to retrieve.

    Jocasta had to cover up all the crimes of the now defunct Jedi Order. A modern day paper shredding.

    Going back to this topic again about the upcoming character Heather was referring to that we havn't seen before in the DV comics. I'm beginning to think she wasn't referring to the girl in the preview images. I can't think of any character we have gotten so far that would fit the look of that character. I have a feeling the character in the previews is an entirely brand new character and Heather was referring to somebody else.

    I'd love to see him get frustrated with the computer and slash it with his saber like Kylo Ren.

    Shouldn't someone create a new thread for the two-issue mini-arc that's coming out this month?

    I can't tell if this or Aphra is my favourite series... they are both so good.

    Favourite ongoing series btw, the original Vader is up there too.

    I don't know why but I love the trend of inquisitors trying to make small talk with Vader and him remaining silent. It's so hilarious, especially compared to how they act all so serious around him in Rebels.

    ninth sister huh? Did we know her name before? I don't think we knew her name before. But the image of her getting surgery in the previous book made it look like she lost a lot more than an eye. And the way she said "Dying to Die" gave me the creeps. I can't tell if she is just reading Vaders own self hatred, or maybe plotting something herself. Either way this looks awesome.

    I think it's actually her who places the bounty on Vader's head.

    I remember reading that the Dowutin was female some time ago. Might have been speculation, but doesn't seem that way.

    At this point it wouldn't surprise me. But it could just as well be a bait and switch. Get us suspecting her, until it is revealed to be someone else. Only one way to find out.
