Anakin Skywalker is dead…as far as the galaxy knows. He died with the rest of the Jedi, and now there is only Darth Vader, the Dark Lord of the Sith!
Marvel’s new Star Wars: Darth Vader series takes place in the immediate aftermath of Revenge of the Sith, and the fall of the Jedi. Vader’s former brothers and sisters have almost been eliminated. But if he wants to take his next step and claim a lightsaber then Vader is going to have to find a Jedi who managed to escape Order 66.
In CraveOnline’s exclusive preview for Star Wars: Darth Vader # 2, a few clone troopers take inventory of a Jedi outpost as they slowly realize that their usefulness to the Empire may be over. But if Darth Vader is coming to pay them a visit, they may not have much time left before he slaughters them all.
This issue was written by Cullen Bunn, with art by Giuseppe Camuncoli, inks by Cam Smith, and colors by David Curiel, with a cover by Jim Cheung. Here’s the official description from Marvel.
The most fearsome villain of all time returns with an all-new series! When Anakin Skywalker fell, both to the pull of the dark side and to the blade of Obi-Wan Kenobi, he rose back up, more machine than man. Having lost everything that was once dear to him, the former chosen one must take his first steps into a darker world…as Darth Vader, Dark Lord of the Sith! Join Vader as he learns a new way – the way of Darth Sidious and his newly formed Empire…the way of the dark side.
Star Wars: Darth Vader # 2 will be released on Wednesday, June 21 in comic book stores everywhere.
