Darth Vader and the Cry of Shadows #2

Clone trooper Hock has been through much since being left for dead by his Jedi leaders in the Clone Wars. Now, Hock believes he has found a truly great warrior who deserves loyalty and commands respect—Darth Vader! If Hock can impress the Dark Lord as a stormtrooper, he will have earned respect of his own from the leader he admires most.

I'm hoping this one is better than the last one. Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed 9th Assassin, but it was a massive step down from Ghost Prison and I'm hoping this jumps up to that caliber again.

^ lol awesome, and I agree 9th was not as good as GP but that was probably the best series in years and years. I just hope it keeps up the high quality artwork of the last few Vader series.

Gabriel Guzman is the artist on this series. He did the artwork for Dark Times: Fire Carrier. He's pretty good, but I think Stephen Thompson and Alessio are better.

Dark Horse has a preview of issue #1 on Facebook

Darth Vader and the Cry of Shadows #4 (of 5)

Release Date: March 19, 2014
Details: FC, 32 pages, $3.50, Miniseries

Writer: Tim Siedell
Artist: Gabriel Guzman
Colorist: Michael Atiyeh
Cover Artist: Felipe Massafera

Fighting at the side of Darth Vader in an air attack against a group of inspired, cause-driven Separatists, stormtrooper Hock has an opportunity to show his value. When he is captured, learning of the enemy’s cause—and who they’re working with—only reinforces Hock’s belief in the Galactic Empire.

Anyone check out issue #3 yet? Pretty cool issue. Even though it relies heavily on narration, I like it a lot. Both the story and the artwork are really good.
