Darth Vader Volume 1 from Marvel Comics

I finished the first volume of Darth Vader (2015, 166 pages) a day after receiving it for Christmas.  Once I started I didn't want to put it down.  It really is a good book that collects the first six comic books in the series.  The books picks up right after A New Hope and highlights Darth Vader and his relationship with the Emperor.  As they are both Sith it isn't surprising that there is conflict. Darth Vader, while loyal, has his own agenda as he tries to figure out all the Emperor's schemes.  That is basically what you'll get from this collection.  Dr. Aphra, who has a key part in the book, is introduced here.  She became such a fan favorite she won a contest and now has her own Star Wars Black Series 6" figure.   She is a good character and not what I expected.  There really isn't much to spoil in this book but I don't need to go into any greater detail.  This book is part of the new Star Wars canon and anyone who like Star Wars and/or reads comics would probably enjoy this book.


  1. Thanks to your review... I headed over to Amazon to see how much it would cost. Found out Prime members can read it on their Kindle app for free. Downloading it my iPad right now.

    1. Glad to hear. I'll be curious to hear what you think.
