    Part of me wants to continue on and on about this issue and this series in general, but I really think that you should just read it. It's the best Star Wars comic I've ever read and I'm not exaggerating that point. Hopefully Sidell and crew will be back for more Vader "the early years" because they've reignited a passion for this character that I thought was dead. If you missed out on this series then do yourself a favor and grab the issues from Dark Horse's digital story or hit the back issue bins at your local shop. This series deserves your support so check it out. Read Full Review

    Overall a great series with some pacing issues here and there. This issue delivers all the answers you'd want and comes complete with a very well rendered moment between Darth and the Emperor. The art has always been of a bombastic nature with great lighting and pace too. Read Full Review

    Darth Vader and the Ninth Assassin #5 is a good conclusion to the five part comic series. The Emperor proves once again he is the master of deceit and Darth Vader is his lackey, for now. Read Full Review

    This series is not good. It's too many issues of poorly cultivated ideas. This particular issue ties up a lot of the loose ends that helps to make some sense of what came before but there is too little of it and it comes much too late. If you like beasts and action then this issue might be enjoyable. If you are particular about your Darth Vader then you are going to find this issue to be out of character on many fronts. The ideas are here somewhere they just don't get executed very well unfortunately. Read Full Review
