The natives of the planet Shu-Torun are revolting. And there's no way the Empire will stand for that. Darth Vader is tasked with leading a military assault against Shu-Torun! Could it be that his rise to glory has begun? But who will follow Vader into war? Would you? Then again, it's better to fight alongside Vader than against him. That's a lesson that the Ore Barons are about to learn...

This story occurs between six and twelve months after Episode IV: A New Hope.
The events of the opening chapter, originally released as Darth Vader Annual #1, occur prior to the events of Vader Down.

Reviews by Darth Kondorr, Poland, 2017:

Darth Vader Annual #1:
"Darth Vader Annual is an interesting one-shot that showcases the essence of Gillen's run to date: Vader's ruthlessness and cuning in dealing with the Emperor's enemies. The art is great, the story interesting if not truly innovative and the evil droids are evil. Worth every penny!"

Rating: 4 / 5

The Shu-torun War:
"As always the art was wonderful, but the story itself was what I consider a filler. The best that came out of this issue, is yet another of Cylo’s abominations gone… these guys were not a good idea to begin with and I cannot wait till every one of them is wiped out of the new canon. At least this one promises an interesting finale."

Rating: 3 / 5
