New Darth Vader comic story begins in June

10th March 2017 |

As exclusively reported on IGN.com, Marvel are to release a new Darth Vader comic book story that will tell the origin of the Dark Lord of the Sith's lightsaber. Penned by Star Wars comics stalwart Charles Soule (Lando, Obi-Wan & Anakin, and Poe Dameron) and with art by Giuseppe Camuncoli (The Amazing Spider-Man) the story will begin at the end of Episode III: Revenge of the Sith when Vader joins his master Sidious in viewing the construction of the first Death Star.

"The book begins one second after the end of Revenge of the Sith. Darth Vader is in the armored suit that we see throughout the rest of his life, most of his life," Soule explained. "He is just awakening to that moment and that realization. So he has shouted ‘No!’ in the way we see in the film, and then it picks up immediately after that point. So we see him adjusting to that. We see him learning to be more machine than man. We see him going through some really, really cool early moments of his early mythology and history."

“The first arc is going to revolve around Vader's construction of his red lightsaber, because at the end of Revenge of the Sith, he obviously loses his blue saber when he gets all chopped up and Obi-Wan takes it to eventually give to Luke down the road. So we end up with a character who is known as having this iconic sword, like his magical red sword, but he doesn't have it yet. So what better way to start a big huge series than with a quest for a magic sword?” Soule said. “We're going to explore the mythology around lightsabers to some degree, which will be very fun. I'm really lucky that I get to tell that story. Seems like a big piece of the puzzle for him.”
