The first issue of our new Darth Vader series, written by Charles Soule and drawn by Giuseppe Camuncoli arrives in June, promising to tell us about the earlier days of Vader and the “epic rise” of the legendary villain.
Marvel says that the “pull of the dark side” and of Obi-Wan’s influence will be part of Anakin Skywalker’s experience, but “having lost everything that he once held dear”, he chooses a darker path. The events in this comic will pick up right after Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith, and Vader must become “Dark Lord of the Sith”.
Our covers on issue #1 are by Jim Cheung, Mark Brooks, Adi Granov, Skottie Young, Phil Noto, and John Tyler Christopher:
