    While there aren't any great big plot points going on here, we get the continued arc of Vader realizing more of his past and who was involved in shaping it being realized and the flashbacks handle it well. They're powerful moments in the small sense but deliver an intriguing sequence of events as you try to parse how Vader is interpreting them himself. The bulk of the issue is all about the action and with Zed under the control of the Scourage it comes across quite well with so many good moments as the fight unfolds. I continue to just delight in watching how Ienco handles the movement and design of Vader as there's just something so powerful about it that works in a very distinctive way. Read Full Review

    With the overall Dark Droids event largely being superficial, this installment in the crossover event is one of the most exciting yet, even without the direct implications it has over the invading Scourge. Read Full Review

    Star Wars: Darth Vader #39 continues the battle between Vader and the Scourge which has a new droid body to fight with. The story and art really work in tandem here and while the Scourge's new possessed droid provides the physical challenge, the real meat of this story is resolving the inner turmoil within Darth Vader. That's where the art writing and art really pop in this comic and it feels good seeing Darth Vader go all out against the Scourge's possessed droid. Read Full Review

    The arc of Vader finding the Force again has been of more interest to me than the never-ending supply of droids for him to kill. Read Full Review
