HANDMAIDEN NO MORE? Few bonds in the galaxy are as strong as the sisterhood of the former handmaidens of Padm? Amidala. But all that was threatened when Sab? entered the service of Darth Vader, the man the handmaidens always believed was responsible for Padmé's death. Now Dormé, Saché, Rabé and Eirtaé are determined to save Sabé - or stop her, no matter what. But the influence of the Dark Lord is strong and dangerous - and not just to Sabé. What path will the handmaidens choose? And how does all this play into Darth Vader's true plans?

    Amid action-packed scenes of triumph and betrayal, characters make complex and heartbreaking choices in Star Wars: Darth Vader #32. Heroes seem a little less heroic, and villains a little less villainous, as each strives to protect those they care about and make the galaxy a safer, more equitable, and better place. Place a box of tissues close by when you read this issue. Don't risk water damage with a comic this good! Read Full Review

    The Handmaidens, Sab included, proved to be complex characters in their own right, and while some fans might only be interested in the ways that Vader's journey is impacted, we hope that these figures get the spotlight in future adventures to add more exciting reveals of what else was going on in the galaxy far, far away in the time of the original trilogy.

    This has a been a fun enough storyline overall and I'm curious to see what they'll do with Sabe overall going forward and I'm weirdly hopeful for a post-ROTJ look at what the Handmaidens are up to. That said, it was a little convoluted as a whole in what was trying to be done but that can be smoothed over just in the enjoyment of seeing these characters resurface and some of the things that they touched upon with it. It generally read well, dealt with some outstanding subplots that have been dangling for an age, and gives us a bit of closure while still allowing for a way to poke at it again should someone have an idea. It's definitely been an interesting experience overall. Read Full Review

    Vader is disappointed and angry. He put his faith in a proxy for his only love, mother of his presumably only child. She has failed him, which is akin to betrayal. Future events are unclear. Ask again later. Read Full Review
