    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge May 3, 2023

    The use of the black/white/red thing over the past several years doesn't mean as much as it once did but what I get from it are generally good anthology books. And those are hard to come by. Getting the first of four parts of an anthology Star Wars series here focused on Vader is definitely welcome and they're tales that you can either keep or toss away as part of canon and not worry about it. What you want is to just enjoy what these creators can do in playing in short form with the property and either going wild in their way or rich and deep in others. All three stories have great points to them and have that labor of love feeling that delivers. Read Full Review

    The Comicbook Dispatch - StoryBabbler Apr 27, 2023

    Star Wars: Darth Vader Black, White & Red #1 brings Vader fan three new tales featuring their favorite Sith Lord. While anthologies from Marvel Comics are not alway that great, even in the Black, White and Red series, this issue at least is okay. Two out of the three stories in the comic are good. The first story is an ongoing story that's good and will carry over into all four issues. Then there's the second story written and drawn by Peach Momoko, and this one steals the show as the best in this issue with its cool and surreal Darth Vader imagery. Hopefully the next issue of the series will keep up the pace. Read Full Review
