    For a series that has had its ups and downs over the course of two dozen issues, Darth Vader goes out with a home run installment that is a must-read for any fan of Vader or the Star Wars saga as a whole. Read Full Review

    Vader goes on a journey to save his love and his future in this finale. The ending is never in doubt, but this climax's journey is staggering. The visuals are hopeful and damned. This Darth Vader will shock, surprise, and stun you. What an ending! Highest possible recommendation. Read Full Review

    A great final issue that puts Darth Vader through a spiritual test that's awe-inspiring. This issue will not only make you think of Darth Vader on new terms, but it'll give you new insight into his journey to be the chosen one. Read Full Review

    I hope Soule and the rest of the team with Giuseppe Camuncoli and Daniele Orlandini get a chance to work on more Star Wars books in the future. This is a solid ending. Read Full Review

    I'm always surprised at how much I enjoy this series every time I read a new issue. I wasn't expecting to like this. Vader is the ultimate villain and it's kind of weird rooting for him as a protagonist. The art and the lore are really great though, especially in this issue. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - NumidianPrime Dec 19, 2018

    It's definitely a very satisfying conclusion to the run that solidifies it as one of my favorites, if not my actual favorite, so far. I think it'll read even better when the entire series is reread from beginning to end, because it's clearly a planned out and plotted story with arcs and bookends. I'm really excited to see what Soule does next. He clearly has some other project in the works and you can see seeds for it throughout the last couple arcs of this series. Can't wait to find out!

    Comic Watch - Kenneth Bowden Jan 2, 2019

    Soule has a talent for balancing sledgehammer heavy action with artful plot seed planting, and the way he uses both here shows that hes truly gets Vader. Not just as a battle-hardened killing machine (although he nails that too) but also as the tragically flawed man underneath the mask. If ever you needed a simple example of why Vader is so great and enduring this run is it, consistent in quality from start to finish. Soule brings an epic run to rollercoaster conclusion that will have any fan needing a minute to truly digest all that hes revealed while also clamouring for the next chapter in Vaders history to see how these things play out.
