    The story of Jennir and his lover should have important ramifications once Vader reaches him. That is what I'm excited for, but the story is being unveiled for a different reader, one who has grown attached to the cast of characters and has a good sense of what has come before it. That reader isn't me. I can still appreciate this issue though and it wasn't a total loss for me. I think anyone going in fresh might have the same trouble I had, but a couple issues in should rectify this as there's a top notch comic to be read here. Read Full Review

    A propaganda ad pitches how busy and vital Darth Vader is to the Empire. While much of that seems better suited to Brian Wood's current "Star Wars" series than "Dark Times," it anchors this first issue of the new series nicely, promising an inevitable conflagration. It's a bold first strike, but so much of this issue is told in flashback that readers will anxiously await the story after Darth Vader lets go of the perch he clings to early in this issue. Stradley and Wheatley have teased Vader throughout their run on "Dark Times," it's hopeful that this series will finally deliver in full. Read Full Review
