    In conclusion, this comic is absolutely great. For those of you whove seen Rebels or Clone Wars, it should be incredibly satisfying and entertaining, and for anyone else, it is still a great insight into understanding one of the most iconic villains of all time: Darth Vader. Read Full Review

    Vader shows restraint as he's hot on the trail of Jocasta Nu. The characters are written sensationally and the visuals are outstanding. This Darth Vader is fantastically frightening. Read Full Review

    The plight of Jocasta Nu becomes even more fascinating as she returns to her former home and struggles to balance the needs of her quest with her rage at seeing the Jedi Temple perverted. Who would have thought that such a minor character from the Prequels could suddenly become such a compelling protagonist? Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Nov 21, 2017

    Though there are still a few areas that feel a touch wonky to me in a way, both in character/story points and artwork, Darth Vader feels like it's coming into its own with this arc as it starts to explore a post-Order 66 galaxy. I'm hopeful we'll see some connections in Imperial characters from the novels such as Catalyst since that can tie in well to the films themselves as well as Rebels. The Vader material has some intriguing moments but for me it's all about the Jocasta storyline with what she's doing and the seeds for the future that can exist here for something larger. Though she frustrates me just a bit toward the end there's so much good stuff with her in both story and art that I want a miniseries for her already. Read Full Review

    Despite being a slower issue, Darth Vader #8 is an engaging issue with good moments. It still earns a recommendation, and you should read it. Lord Vader is a compelling protagonist, and he is enjoyable to read about. Read Full Review

    Putting Vader and Jocasta Nu front and centre, Vader #8 manages to balance both characters well and does a good job at making them both compelling figures. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Nov 29, 2017

    Even a Jedi librarian isn't immune from emotional reactions as we see in the issue's final panels when Jocasta chooses to confront the Inquisitor rather than make her escape foreshadows much more action in issue #9. As for Vader, I'm sure he'll relish the attempt to face off against another Jedi (although we might have to wait an extra month for that confrontation). Worth a look. Read Full Review
