This Summer Darth Vader returns in an all new series from Marvel Entertainment and Lucas Films. This new ongoing series is written by writer Charles Soule and artist Giuseppe Camuncoli.
“I’m so excited that we get to tell more stories about the best villain of all time…and this time, we get to show his very first steps into the Dark Side,” said series editor, Jordan D. White. “I was blown away by some of the stuff we plan to show in this series…and I think readers will be, too—from hardcore Star Wars fanatics to those who want to see more of that deadly threat from the end of Rogue One. Charles has an evil streak in him that readers might have seen whenever he’s written Palpatine in the past. Now, that comes front and center.”
This series starts with Darth Vader #1 this June. The series will follow key parts of Vader’s past, including the construction of his red lightsaber, the aftermath of Order 66, the start of the Inquisitor Program, and the beginning of the Empire. Darth Vader starts after the events of Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith.
