    While I like the general direction that this book may take for a bit, even if the Crimson Dawn piece may be a bit too overused already, it's a clunky start in narrative terms. I'm already figuring on not trying to really get to know any of the new characters because most, if not all of them, will be dead soon either by Crimson Dawn of Vader's hand. But it could provide a reasons for Vader's lack of focus on Luke at this point makes sense while also driving up a reminder of what defined him back in Attack of the Clones with his desire for real order in the galaxy, from his point of view.

    Star Wars: Darth Vader #18 starts Vader's hunt for Crimson Dawn, and things take a more unconventional approach. We get to see more of Vader's motives for why his fight against Crimson Dawn is more than just fulfilling his imperial duties. The comic introduces some new characters, has some solid action, and begins the next storyline for Darth Vader. Read Full Review
