In case you saw the hilarious Vader spoof newspaper today that alluded to the death of Osama bin Laden, but instead used Obi-Wan Kenobi, many of you might have wondered who was behind the joke. Of course going to galacticempiretimes.com didn’t reveal much, but doing a little sleuthing we here at Roqoo Depot were able to find the culprits: VisibleU. You can check out their site and see for yourselves as they admit to the prank. Together with RobertScottArt.com, VisibleU became a pretty big hit with their viral campaign. It makes you wonder if we’ll see anything more out of them.
And in case you haven’t read it yet, you can see the spoof newspaper here.

Tags: omnibus, the complete saga
Earlier we reported the new August solicitations from Dark Horse that were posted by Comic Book Resources, however, TheForce.Net picked up something that CBR missed: Star Wars Omnibus The Complete Saga. At 600 pages, this omnibus will collect Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace; Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones; Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith; Star Wars: A New Hope – The Special Edition (each of these was a four issue series done by Dark Horse); as well as Marvel Star Wars issues 39-44 which cover Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back, and the four issue Star Wars: Return of the Jedi comic series also by Marvel.
All of these comics have already been collected as trade paperbacks (and Marvel issues 39-44 were included in the A Long Time Ago… Volume 2 omnibus), but this will be the first time all of them have been gathered in one collection. The Star Wars Omnibus: The Complete Saga is set to go on sale October 12 this year.
