Charles Soule achieved true greatness with his run on Darth Vader. Conceived of as “baby Vader,” Soule sought to pick up the story of the newly armored Dark Lord directly after Revenge of the Sith. He hasn’t been Darth Vader very long; in fact, at the beginning of the story, he’s still more Anakin Skywalker than Sith Lord. This is the story of how Vader finished becoming Vader. The story arcs of Darth Vader: Dark Lord of the Sith tell crucial moments in Vader’s history in original and epically creative ways. The first volume tells of his quest to create his own red-bladed lightsaber, taking advantage of the new canon lore regarding taking a Jedi’s lightsaber and conforming the crystal to his will by “bleeding” the crystal. From there, we find Vader on a mission to find the remaining Jedi on his hit-list who escaped Order 66—including an incredibly compelling clash with none other than the Jedi librarian Jocasta Nu. The final arc is the continuation of Vader’s quest from Episode III to save Padmé from dying, as he looks to open a portal to Rebels’ World between Worlds to bring her back to life. It’s also the story of the origin of Vader’s Castle, introduced in Rogue One. Not to mention the introduction of another Sith, Lord Momin! This series is one you don’t want to miss.

Publisher's Summary
