    Charles Soule has delivered once again. Everyone working on this book is stepping up their game, and creating an instant classic. Easily, one of the best titles at Marvel along with Spectacular Spider-Man, Fantastic Four, Venom and Amazing Spider-Man. Darth Vader 23 once again defies expectations and goes for the unexpected. If you're not reading this book, then you really must ask yourself "Are you a true comic book fan?" Read Full Review

    Some dark humor punctuates the construction of Vader's castle. The conclusion of this chapter is never really in doubt, but it sure is fun getting there. The visuals continue to be superior in every possible way, creating new fans and thrilling veteran readers. The tales of this Dark Lord continue to brighten my day. Recommended. Read Full Review

    I'm lamenting the impending end of this series as Charles Soule has worked some great expansion in the Star Wars universe through it as we get to know the Sith and their machinations more. Vader is establishing more of himself in this arc in a way that really cements his growth in power as he's reaching for things that the Emperor is capable of. At the same time, it's all driven by something far more personal than what Palpatine is operating under and that colors it in these early days of the dark lord of the Sith. This installment works great and I love that it looks like the artists were supplied with prototype designs for the Fortress to use here as the various failed designs of Momin's. It's a nice little nod that lets us look at what could have been in a fun way. Read Full Review

    The issue itself wasn't exceptional, though the stage could be set for a surprising finale to the storyline in the next book that could have made the whole journey worth it. Read Full Review
