    SciFiPulse - Patrick Hayes Jul 13, 2017

    This is a comic that wouldn't have me thinking twice to pay more for, it's that good. Vader has a foe that can give him a run for his money, there's a possible tease of something that could be used in The Last Jedi, and the visuals are perfect. The Force isn't strong in this, it's tremendous. Absolutely recommended. Read Full Review

    As weird as it is to see Darth Vader be overwhelmed, STAR WARS: DARTH VADER #3 does a good job of making it part of his growth. This is his first battle against a surviving Jedi, and it certainly won't be the last. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Jul 15, 2017

    This series is digging into an intriguing area that I'm glad to see being explored like it is and what it's expanding upon in general as this is a neat time period to work with. Coming from novels like Catalyst and New Dawn and other areas that touch upon this period, it definitely is welcome to see what Vader has to go through to truly earn his position. Soule gives us a character that's developing from one form to another and that transition state is awkward and unstable, much like Vader himself in a lot of ways. I do hope more of this comes about in the dialogue and exposition as well as some physical elements of ghost limbs and the like as well as Camanucoli can really do some neat things with this. It's a great looking book that has me curious as to just how important some of these elements may be long term but it's also making for a great story in the here and now on its own. Read Full Review

    Now this is more like it. After a slow pair of opening chapters, the new Darth Vader series really starts to find its groove in issue #3. Read Full Review

    Infil'a and Vader's first confrontation has everything a Star Wars fan could want: lightsabers, Force powers and lots of excitement. Read Full Review

    Darth Vader #3 is an excellent turning point for our Sith's first mission, showing that the former Jedi Knight has a lot still to learn. Throughout this not only do we get an interesting introduction to Kirak Infil'a, but we also see that Vader's confidence may be one of his major weaknesses. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Jul 19, 2017

    By the time the two clash the obstacles have done their work and softened up the Sith leading to a victory for the Jedi. The question now becomes is how long with it take for Vader to regroup and climb the mountain again? Worth a look. Read Full Review
