    I am far more invested in this series than I expected to be, and I'm finding that I can't wait to see both where the next issue goes and where the series in general goes. This issue had twists and turns that I very much was not expecting and I don't know where the series could be going next in the big picture. I'm worried about some of my favorite characters whose fates are up in the air and I'm very interested to see where Pak ends up taking this series in two or three arcs from now. Read Full Review

    Issue three of Darth Vader is my favorite issue of this series thus far. That's quite an accomplishment considering the long period of time between issues. While Pak could have stayed in the vastness of Star Wars history, he didn't. He picks up the story and moves it along with some familiar faces, vehicles, and locations for sure, but what he's added makes this an even better Star Wars experience. Read Full Review

    So to recap, that 2 wins out of 9, with a win percentage lower than the Miami Dolphins winning percentage in 2019. Not really scourge of the galaxy stuff there! That is probably as good an analogy for this book as anything; the idea, much like Vader himself, is built on reputation rather than actuality. Read Full Review
