    This is what you show people to get them to follow Star Wars comics. An excellent read with a split story following the Sith and his prey. Read Full Review

    Darth Vader has a very solid installment in this arc that definitely has that feeling of wrapping up various threads that Kieron Gillen has had in here from early on. With a larger story arc for the series as a whole, there's a lot to like in seeing it all come together here, even if it is mostly third act material of action/closure. Vader's story is solid here and Larroca gets to play with some great locales and characters while Aphra's story is just as engaging but with the necessary lighter elements to make you grin and laugh all while feeling very, very, apprehensive about her future. Great stuff all around once again. Read Full Review

    This series is rapidly moving towards its climax, and there's a definite sense of finality to the conflict as Vader makes his move against Cylo and Dr. Aphra realizes she'll never be able to escape her master's clutches. Read Full Review

    Darth Vader #21 is an action-heavy issue as both Vader and Aphra's storylines contain extended actions sequences. Although Aphra has reason to fear what Vader wants her for, she has no choice to comply. Worth a look. Read Full Review

    It's not a good sign for a book when the supporting characters are more compelling and their stories more interesting than those of the title character. In addition, it's just too hard to root for Vader, because he's the bad guy in the universe (and is only sympathetic in hindsight from the events at the end of "Return of the Jedi'). This may be my last story arc with the title, as other books, including the main Star Wars book, are holding my interest far better than this one. Read Full Review
