    I will never look at librarians differently. Soule gives us a fantastic story of betrayal and shows that even the old librarians know how to kick ass. If youre not reading Darth Vader but are a fan of Star Wars, this is a series you should definitely pick up. Soule has demonstrated that he knows these characters and he knows what makes Star Wars so enduring. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Dec 12, 2017

    It's taken a bit for me to get into this groove of this incarnation of Vader and some of that is shaking off assumptions and realigning views. Charles Soule does some solid stuff in this arc with what Palpatine is up to and some of the fallout on Corcuscant after Order 66 and the things that needed to be done. I definitely like, much to my chagrin, the expansion on the Grand Inquisitor while also getting to see more of Jocasta's capabilities and quick thing. Camanucoli and Orlandini put in another solid issue here that flows well with the action and works some good designs for the temple, leaving me wanting a deeper look at it all as well.

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison Dec 11, 2017

    Despite not moving the ball very far, Darth Vader #9 is an exciting and high-octane issue. It has spent a lot of time building up to this showdown between Vader and Nu, so one could understand why the book may want to savor the confrontation. It is an overall fun read, and Camuncoli puts some great work in this issue. I can recommend it, and you should feel free to check it out. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Dec 7, 2017

    This story arc has taken some interesting turns, between the focus on setting up the relationship between Vader and the Inquisitorius and Jocasta Nu emerging as the unlikely hero of the tale. Unfortunately, this issue doesn't do much to propel that narrative along. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Nathan Koffler Dec 12, 2017

    Once I got to the last page, I felt like the issue was lacking so much needed story development. I'm sure once put together, I will enjoy it a lot more, but I don't know that I feel this amount of substance in this issue is the worth the $3.99. People who are much bigger Star Wars fans may feel differently and feel that the artwork is more than enough, but I personally think the collections offer a much better reading experience and is a much better value.
