On a remote world, Darth Vader chafes at the assignment given to him by the Emperor: guarding an Imperial manufacturing facility from the anti-Imperial natives. Vader feels the duty is beneath him-until he learns that a Jedi Master and his Padawan are in league with the natives!

Now the game is afoot, and Vader is on the trail of his favorite prey. No ambush, no local monstrous lizards, will deter him his pursuit. Woe be to the Jedi when Vader catches up with them! This issue follows events in Revenge of the Sith!

    Bottom line, I loved this comic. Whether it was seeing Darth Vader kicking butt or that we haven't seen too many stories that take place in between Episodes III and IV, this was a pleasure to read. It may not have huge repercussions in the overall grand scheme of the Star Wars Universe but it shows us that just because Anakin put on the armor, he still has his fighting skills. The combination of the writing and art is something I would love to see more often in Star Wars comics. This is easily a 5 out of 5. Read Full Review
