•  DARTH VADER may be the most feared man in the galaxy. But to the proud Grand Moffs of THE EMPIRE, he's just the Emperor's apprentice - below them in the hierarchy.
•  But what fury burns in the heart of a SITH with such overwhelming rage when a mere Moff dares command him?
•  And at what point does Darth Vader show them his true power?

    Vader is a force to be reckoned with in this awesome finale to this series. He only speaks thirteen words in the entire issue, but the characters " and the reader " never forget the power that he wields and it's shown several times. The visuals are excellent, with me wanting to see more from Bachs in the future. Read Full Review

    The build up to the grand lesson, the hidden anecdote of the story, is well crafted and well thought out. It's not entirely new or surprisingly, but it is comfortable. It still elicits a smirk when the title of the issue clicks into place, and while we don't get anything new " the ride is fun. The Age of Rebellion stories have the difficult task of providing more stories for familiar character, but Pak continues to try and find an interesting perspective to mull around it and provide with a short, neat little tale that, alongside Bachs' artwork, still gives us a worth while read.

    As a closing installment to the Age of Rebellion and the recent spatesof Vader books this is a fitting issue. It stands alone, but remindsus of the tenacity, ruthlessness, strength and terror that are combined in this villain. Another fine issue, and adds to Pak's growing body of fine work for the Star Wars Marvel line. Read Full Review

    Honestly, this is a case of I like the story, I've seen some aspect of this story before, and I'll likely forget this story. It's well done, scripted just right and illustrated with some great designs and a good flow to it, but it's not a memorable piece in the end. Pak captures Vader well with the dynamic he has with the Emperor and we see, once again, how Vader is used as an effective tool to remove the problematic parts of the Imperial military machine. If one hasn't read a lot of Vader stories I imagine it'll go over better and make more of an impact but for me it was just another familiar piece when I was hoping for something a little more unique.

    Fans of Vader are sure to get a kick out of the book, as it even offers a hint of his dark humor without having to make him crack jokes. Read Full Review

    An overall underwhelming attempt to understand one of the most iconic figures in pop culture history. Read Full Review

    Mildly fun, hardly entertaining, dry Vader action. Greg Pak's stuff is starting to feel enslaved by the Disney machine. Read Full Review
