    Star Wars: Darth Vader #18 is one of the most engaging and enlightening Star Wars tales in the franchise’s four-decade history. Since their first issue of the relaunch, Charles Soule and the entire creative team consistently bring nuance and depth to the character of Vader in a way that’s both surprising and rewarding, demonstrating that there are plenty of layers to the Dark Lord of the Sith—and his allies and enemies—to be explored.

    The overall idea of the story has been done before BUT not with Darth Vader. However, Soule's creativity shines through in "how" Tarkin deploys his tactics and what he does in his attempt to kill one of the greatest villains of all time. If that doesn't sell you, then pick the issue up for its fantastic artistic display of Vader in action. If you love Star Wars, you will love this issue. Read Full Review

    I can't recommend this highly enough. If you've never read a Star Wars comic, pick this up. The characters are true, the actions stunning, and the visuals to die for. This could be the most perfect Star Wars comic ever created. Read Full Review

    Soule does a great job of giving us a look inside of Tarkin's mind here and the way Vader deals with combat at this stage while Camanucoli and Orlandini continue to be strong in the visual design. While I'm not looking for a series of one-off stories like this I do want more of them to explore the fringes of Star Wars and these characters more. Read Full Review
