See The Dark Lord At His Deadliest In ‘Darth Vader: Black, White & Red’
by Tony Thornley
He’s the greatest villain in science fiction. In April, Darth Vader: Black, White & Red reveals a new side to Darth Vader.
The latest in Marvel’s Black, White & Blood line, which has included anti-heroes like Wolverine, Moon Knight, Elektra and Deadpool, this miniseries is the first to head to a Galaxy Far Far Away. It’ll be full of some of Vader’s most brutal and violent battles yet. And maybe if this one is a hit, we’ll get a follow-up with Darth Maul or Kylo Ren.
The first issue will feature stories from Jason Aaron and Leonard Kirk, in a four part story that will stretch through the entire limited series, Peach Momoko’s first Star Wars interiors, and the Star Wars debut of Torunn Grønbekk.
“‘All I am surrounded by is fear. And dead men.’ That moment from ‘Vader Down’ is still one of my favorite things I’ve written during my time at Marvel,” Aaron told StarWars.com. “I loved getting to let Darth Vader cut loose with all his power in such an epic way. And I couldn’t pass up the chance to revel in the dark side again and put Vader in an even more perilous situation… and then see how he carves his way out.”
“This is a project we’ve been waiting to do for a while and we’ve got more amazing talent lined up that I can’t wait to announce,” Editor Mark Paniccia said. “It’s such a thrill to use this unique storytelling approach on one of the greatest villains in the galaxy.”
