    Anyway, I think this comic is one of the best links between different parts of the Star Wars canon that weve seen so far. Events in Vaders life and his relationship with Palpatine connect him with Kylo, while events regarding the surviving Jedi and Inquisitorius connect Clone Wars with Rebels. To any fan of Star Wars, casual or intense, this comic is definitely worth reading. Read Full Review

    A great issue, save the lettering. The story reveals Vader's working with the Inquisitorius, while showing a surviving Jedi threatens Palpatine's reign. Exemplary story with wonderful visuals. Recommended reading. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - David Brooke Nov 1, 2017

    This is an excellent start to a new story arc that has Vader chasing down a Jedi with an interesting twist thrown in. Soule has been excellent at infusing Star Wars tidbits and this Jedi will certainly peak your interest. Read Full Review

    This series is developing into a worthy follow-up to the previous Vader comic, even as it strives to tell a very different sort of story. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Nov 7, 2017

    I enjoyed the opening arc to the Darth Vader series well enough as it served an important point in reminding us of the transitional phase for Anakin into Vader and that a younger Vader is going to move differently and act differently. We get something that feels a bit like an older Vader to some degree here but there's also an eagerness to move forward and accomplish things, to distract from what percolates in the back of his mind, but also to serve his master. Soule brings us a lot to sink our teeth into in a really good way here with some strong pacing to keep it engaging all while Camanoculi and Orlandini move us through some great scenes and brings Jocasta to life with more personality than I expected.

    The series so far has done an excellent job of depicting a young Lord Vader finding his way as a Sith Lord. Already in this arc, he has gone a long way towards coming into his own as a force of pure evil. This was clear when he trained one of the Inquisitors and utilized pain as the greatest teacher. It became clear that the Empire will have to make serious investments in robotic limbs with Vader as the head trainer. Read Full Review

    It's too early to say if this chapter is a strong one, but if you like great comics artwork, stick around for more Darth Vader. Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison Nov 5, 2017

    Darth Vader remains a compelling read under Charles Soule and Giuseppe Camuncoli. While the art isnt quite fitting, its still solid work backing up great storytelling. This one remains on my recommended list. Give it a try. Read Full Review
