BONUS REVIEW by Kevin Healy

There's nothing in Kieron Gillen's body of work that suggests he's your go to guy for licensed science fantasy. His work is intimate, character driven, even spread on a giant canvas like 'Journey Into Mystery'. It's this square peg/round hole balance that has made 'Darth Vader' so much fun as a title so far. This issue, we get 'The Full Gillen'. I really don't want to give too much away, but I really need you to know that there's a protocol droid who specializes in torture and an astromech who's been certfied as homicidal. Mix them in with Gillen's answer to Indiana Jones, a rogue archeologist who talks like a Bendis character, who speaks before she thinks and has with a penchant for historical weapons based crime, and you get something special. I can't say its better than the first two issues, but I can say its different in a very good way, because Vader is Vader during all of this, playing the straight man in a comedy of the absurd. Looks great, reads better.

I give it 9 out of 10 Grahams
