Held responsible for the loss of the Death Star by Palpatine, Vader is angered by his Master's decision to pit him against an array of rivals for his position at Palpatine's side. In order to redeem himself, Vader has discovered the partial identity of the Rebel pilot who destroyed the Death Star. Now, armed with a name, Vader is forced to return to his home planet and face the demons from his past...

This story occurs between six and twelve months after Episode IV: A New Hope.

Review by Darth Kondorr, Poland, 2017:

"Vader continues to be the one true achievement for Marvel's Star Wars comic books. While Aaron's “Star Wars” book is great, it is also completely mad with big events and way to bloated. Vader manages to be more sublime. We still get epic moments and interesting twists, but all is more down to “earth” in Star Wars terms. I could imagine the Vader book to function alongside the movies, or animated shows. Aaron's Star Wars comic on the other hand, I doubt either Lucas himself or his padawan Filoni would actually consider adapting (at least not without major rewrites). Gillen's Vader is a careful extension of what we know from the movies and shows, while Aaron's book seems to me like if someone gave Robert Rodriguez to much freedom. Both are worth your time and money, but hands down Vader takes the top spot!"

Rating: 5 / 5
