    Vader is certainly a presence in this issue, though he occupies only a handful of panels. Instead, readers are given an exciting display of what the fear of the Sith Lord could cause an Imperial to do, ultimately delivering an action-packed story. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Mar 27, 2019

    A highly effective second issue is a lesson in how to tell a great story without requiring a complicated back story, canon, or overly thought out plots. It's high octane Star Wars entertainment -- can Darth Vader fans really ask for more? Read Full Review

    This book brilliantly shows how Vader inspires terror among the Imperials. The story is extreme, the action massive and surprising, and the ending fantastic. The visuals are striking for the horror and unbelievable situations created. This is a fantastic, frenzied tale. Read Full Review

    The issue is an entertaining one that's a quick read but had me laughing throughout. It's a less serious take on Star Wars in a way poking fun at what is a serious matter. While not as good as the first issue, it's still succeeds in delivering an aspect of how others view Vader, in this case fear of his wrath. For those that want a laugh or are Star Wars fans, this is well worth checking out. Read Full Review

    There's a certain kind of fun that a book like this has as we get to see Vader from someone else's perspective and the kind of fear that's inspired. It may be what Vader wants on some level but at the same time it pushes certain people to such dangerous extremes that it becomes counterproductive. As a side story that you don't take seriously, Tylux is amusing to watch as is the way everyone watches what's going on unsure of just how serious he is. You do kind of want someone to remove him from his position but things move too quickly for that. Brian Level brings the story to life well and I really like the way he captures the utter fear from Tylux in just about every panel and I definitely enjoyed the absurdity of bursting through the space worm, even if I kind of hope to never see such a sequence again.

    Comics: The Gathering - Kaasen Koy Mar 28, 2019

    Dark Visions #2 really falls short on the promise of the debut issue. The camp is still here (and lots of it) but there isn’t much purpose or style to go along. It’s short on charm and — for a series with the goal of showing us new perspectives on Lord Vader — it comes up short by showing us the very familiar perspective of Imperial Officers within choking range.
