Star Wars: Darth Vader
Ongoing series
Writer: Kieron Gillen
Artist: Salvador Larroca
Starting February 2015

Kieron Gillen: “The high-level concept is that it picks up very shortly after the destruction of the Death Star. Vader is the sole survivor of the greatest military disaster of all time. A disaster he isn’t entirely to blame for, but at least some of the blame is his. He completely let the Rebels escape with the plans. So this kind of comes back to him.”

“Then there’s a lot of stuff that touches on the underworld. When Vader’s reaching out to people to try to get stuff done, he can’t really do it in front of the Empire. One of the things I’ve always found fascinating is the bounty hunter briefing scene in Empire. It tells you two things. One, Vader really is a micro-manager. [Laughs] And two, he knows them. He specifically says, “No disintegrations,” [to Boba Fett]. He knows enough about this dude, and these dudes, to brief them in specific ways. So we’re digging into that relationship a little bit — how Vader knows this stuff.”

I've done that already, do not you. It is true, I'll get it, do not you think it.

I think it's a riddle. In that case my answer is wind.

It's nearly always wind.

Okay, I read Darth Vader #6 last night. So awesome. Seriously, the payoff was well worth the six issue build up. They totally nailed it.

I've been loving this series. I love Kieron Gillen's work (people should try his Image series "The Wicked + The Divine", as it is brilliant) and I like this idea of Vader putting together his own special ragtag group that moves forward his own machinations.

Reminds me of The Force Unleashed, but better executed Smile
