'JOIN ME, AND TOGETHER, WE CAN RULE THE GALAXY AS FATHER AND SON!' THE TRAGEDY OF DARTH VADER CONTINUES! In the shattering climax of The Empire Strikes Back, Darth Vader infamously reveals his true relationship to Luke Skywalker and invites his son to rule the galaxy at his side. But Luke refuses -- plunging into the abyss beneath Cloud City rather than turn to the Dark Side. We all remember Luke's utter horror in this life-altering moment. But what about Vader? In this new epic chapter in the Darth Vader saga, the dark lord grapples with Luke's unthinkable refusal and embarks on a bloody mission of rage-filled revenge against everything and everyone who had a hand in hiding and corrupting his only son. But even as he uncovers the secrets of Luke's origins, Vader must face shocking new challenges from his own dark past. Writer Greg Pak and artist Raffaele Ienco unleash Darth Vader on his dark quest of vengeance and discovery this February! With covers by InHyuk Lee! Rated T

BONUS REVIEW by Kevin Healy


Greg Pak continues his excellent work in the Star Wars universe in this third Darth Vader series from Marvel. He's joined by artist Raffeale Ienco, who seems to be travelling a path somewhere between the photo realistic style used by Salvador Larroca on the first series and the impressionistic Infantinoesque work by Giuseppe Camuncoli on the second. He has a pleasant, scratchy but clean, clear but a little messy line. He's also excellent with his blacks and background. Wherever he came from, he's a winner.

The story is set immediately after The Empire Strikes Back. Vader laments the loss of his wife, his son, his plan, and his future. He's...moody. When you're moody, you go home, right? Where is home for Anakin? Does Vader have that same home? And what is the goal of the visit if there are different answers to those questions?

A couple surprises actually surprise. There's a cool new droid who knows he's not going to survive his travels, and a guest star that would take a miracle for you figure out ahead of time.

Marvel's Star Wars titles have been generally good. Marvel's Darth Vader series have been genuinely superior to those other books. No exception here.


I give it 8 out of 10 Grahams
