    An action packed issue with a terrific cliffhanger. Vader is out for payback, and it's good. Good for fans and the curious of Star Wars. Read Full Review

    The end is rapidly approaching for this series, and that's very evident in the scope and tone of the conflict in this issue. Kieron Gillen and Salvaodor Larroca deliver some of their biggest and most epic moments yet in this chapter. Read Full Review

    Darth Vader has been firing on all cylinders from the start and has been one of the most polished and smoothest books that I've seen. I can't imagine the work that goes into it because the end result is just so fantastic. This installment gets us closer to the end and brings some arcs to a close while beginning to reach back more into the past in a great way that has me eager to see what's next – even as I'm fearful of the end of the book. Kieron Gillen has definitely captured the right tone and style for this book throughout and Salvador Larroca has been a pitch perfect artist for it. Installments like this just reinforce it and has me excited for some sort of massive full series hardcover omnibus at some point to have as coffee table book. Read Full Review

    With a darkly funny script and high personal stakes for Vader himself, Kieron Gillen and company look to send the Sith Lord off on a high note. Read Full Review

    It would seem DARTH VADER has faltered a bit in its last few issues. While the meat of the book is still well done, the potatoes seem to be a little undercooked. With just two issues left, the series could end on a high note or let its readers down. Considering this creative team, it is a safe bet it will be a finale to remember. Read Full Review

    While offering us our first deep-space lightsaber battle of the series, Darth Vader #23 also finds a use for Aphra and the bounty hunters offering a short subplot involving their search for the Emperor aboard the crippled Star Destroyer. Worth a look. Read Full Review
