    Star Wars: Darth Vader - Black, White & Red #3 delivers one of the most chilling Vader tales, showcasing the full force of the Dark Lord of the Sith. With one issue left, it remains to be seen how anyone can top this issue. But I hope they try or as Yoda would say, do. Read Full Review

    Speaking of Vader at the peak of his powers, "Annihilated offers just that with the Dark Lord of Sith destroying and entire Rebel convoy and then the Rebel base it was headed to all by himself. It, like the third story, shows the power and viciousness Darth Vader is capable of. My favorite story of this issue is "Diplomatic Immunity where Vader takes a single pilot back to her homeworld where he annihilates the town she grew up in and threatens her family in order to turn the Rebel spy against the Rebellion and work for him. This is easily the best issue of the series so far. Read Full Review

    With only one more issue to go, the series looks to be one of the more consistent Star Wars miniseries in the franchise's recent history. Read Full Review

    The alternate takes on the world of Vader and what he's capable of is pretty fun to watch here if you don't take it too seriously. But that's part of how you have to handle Star Wars comics in general with how much is packed into the timeline for the core characters. Vader's gout some fun stories here as we see the wild power levels at play and it's certainly enjoyable to watch with some creative situations and a sense of anything goes. All three stories deliver well in utilizing the format with the color design and black and white elements to give it an additional hook without overplaying it and I think I like the third one the most just for the way it unfolds and the narration that clicks. Good stuff all around, however. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Jun 30, 2023

    The limited color format is kind the way of a decent anthology. Its not the colorists fault, though. The format needs to be very carefully approached for it to mean anything at all. Otherwise, it just sort of feels...incomplete. Either make it black and white or full-color. Or have a compelling reason for adding the red into the black-and-white. Read Full Review
