    Vader rises! This run is different than the previous with the same title, also by Marvel Comics, moreover it?s set in a different time period too. This run is set right after the end of ?Star Wars: Episode III ? Revenge of the Sith?. Creative Team: Writer: Charle...

    I very enjoyable additional to Star Wars lore. This picks up right after the end of Revenge of the Sith (NOOOOOOOOOO!). Vader has his new robot body and needs to get a lightsaber and prove himself to the Emperor. This involves some Jedi fighting and general badassery that is not to be ...

    It's Darth Vader being a bad ass. If that's your thing, this is a book for you. Lucky for me... it is my thing. Its a really fun book. There isn't a heck of a lot of overarching plot depth. I mean, this story takes place between Ep.3 and Ep.4 so we already know that no matter what h...

    Good balance of old star wars and new, and by new I mean maybe less than 1/4 if you count that new Jedi. So this takes place right after episode 3 for the most part and it deals with Vader hunting down a red light saber. The Emperor is pulling the strings on Vader making sure he stays ...

    This comic picks up right where Episode III left off. Like directly. There's the whole "Noooooooooo" thing and everything. I liked seeing Vader when he is new to being a Sith. It really is Anakin under there still. Throughout the comic, that Anakin begins to fall away. I liked the ...

    Entirely different from Kieron Gillen's excellent Vader series, this is still a good book. It's basically a Vader Year 1, but far more cinematic and less intrigue oriented than the last series. The only complaint is that it's a bit straightforward: Darth is angry, people will die. But ...

    You know, when Marvel announced they were doing another Darth Vader series, I rolled my eyes a little. Did we really need another so soon after Gillens excellent run? But I took advantage of ComiXology having the first volume on sale for 69p to give the first volume a read and it is...

    How did Darth Vader get his red lightsaber? Better question: who fucking cares?! That said, while this may be the flimsy plot of Charles Soule and Giuseppe Camuncoli?s first volume in the rebooted Vader series, Imperial Machine surprisingly wasn?t that bad. I liked that Soule di...

    The Iron fist of the Empire rules the galaxy & Charles Soule on a Star Wars quite simply rules. I was not sure what to make of this series since Marvel had already published a great Vader solo series. Even more I was not a fan of the idea of getting year one take on Vader. Boy was ...

    This takes place immediately after the end of ROTS, and first of all... I am slain. Him doing all his Darth Vadery things in pursuit of a kyber crystal to make his new red lightsaber is great as usual. I am always completely weak for the "hey it's just one guy in a starfighter" gag....

    How do you follow Kieron Gillen's amazing Darth Vader series? By going back to the beginning of the journey and filling in the blanks, of course. Starting right from the end of Revenge Of The Sith (complete with NOOOOOOOOOO), these six issues follow Darth Vader's quest to find his f...

    AKA Vader: Year One. This takes up immediately after the end of Revenge of the Sith, and chronicles the early days of Vader, as he is getting his lightsaber, dealing with imperials who have no idea who he is yet, and is introduced to Palpatine's extended family of Sith (in a nice conne...

    This is a collection that takes place right after Anakin becomes Darth Vader. In fact, we get the infamous (not in a good way) scene of Vader yelling "NOOOOOOO!" when he finds out Padme is dead. That is the beginning of this collection. I liked this collection and it is a nice story...

    This is solid! It's not the brilliant Charles Soule I remember from before his Marvel days, but it's still a solid read. The art is great, and the book offers us a look at Vader from a different perspective. Soule fills in some blanks, and adds some fun action to the mythos. It's reada...

    This series shows Vader as he's just starting out and he's mad as hell. This is a fun blockbuster-style action romp with little exposition and a fast pace. Camuncoli's art sells the action scenes and Soule throws some new lore into the mix. As a fan of the Clone Wars/Rebels tv shows, I...

    Love this series...more background on Vader's early days. Not easy being an apprentice to the Emperor, who happens to be a Master Sith. This is my 2nd Vader collection that I have read this past week. I will look for more. ...

    I've been a huge fan of Star Wars ever since I was a child but it's weird that this is the very first Star Wars graphic novel I've read. I'm glad though, because it's amazing and I want to read more. Darth Vader will always be one of, if not the most, iconic figure of Star Wars. Thi...

    even though i think Charles Soule is actually a middle school kid who pretends to be an adult who writes mediocre fan fiction, the art (which is truly impressive) and the fact that it?s a fairly solid skeleton of a story taking place within a narrow timeframe helps this little Star W...

    Kieron Gillen's Vader graphic novel series started strong and then fizzled out completely by the end. So I wasn't especially hopeful about the new series by Charles Soule. But I actually quite enjoyed this story. Soule introduces some new elements to Jedi/Sith mythology, and they all w...

    Charles Soule has a hard act to follow. Keiron Gillen's Vader series was aces. One thing he has going for him is Giuseppe Camuncoli. His art is divine. It looks amazing (as in Spider-man) in a Star Wars book. For this series, we're looking at when Anakin first becomes Vader, right afte...

    This is how I wish Kieron Gillen?s series would have started. Not just rehash and nostalgia, but introspection and aggrandizement. Anakin Skywalker finishes his dark journey to become Sith Lord Darth Vader. And it?s amazing. Vader embraces the pain and suffering to test, increa...

    4 ? SPOILER ALERT: if you haven't seen or read Revenge of the Sith, don't read this review. In fact, don't read the comic either because you're going to be spoiled BIG TIME. I was really excited to read this comic. There is a lot of time between Revenge of the Sith and A New Ho...

    Finally, a Marvel Star Wars comic set in a much more interesting time period between the prequels and the original trilogy, instead of that beaten to death space between episodes IV and V. And it?s a surprisingly good comic, too! Starting immediately after the end of episode III, it ...

    When news first broke that we would be getting another Darth Vader series to follow up Kieron Gillen?s amazing run with the character, I was nervous. Gillen?s series did SO MUCH to flesh out Vader as a character, and I was skeptical about the prospect of ANOTHER series centered sol...

    so.... according to the front cover this story arc is called "imperial machine". yet it's also called "the chosen one"? wierd, but either way, late review because apparently goodreads decided not to save my review after I wrote it, so this is a rewrite that I really didn't feel like do...

    The First issue in the second comic run of Vader and a new story arc for a favourite character. This arc known as "The Chosen One" picks up right at the end of Episode 3 and after the horrid "No!" that haunts our dreams it dives straight into the new canon lore regarding lightsaber kyb...

    My friend loaned this to me. It's how Darth Vader got his lightsaber. He basically climbs up a mountain to fight an old Jedi. He gets beat up and left for dead. Then he gets back up because he never gives up because he's Darth Vader. Then he kills Oldy McOldy Jedi dude and takes his li...

    I wasn't at the edge of my seat reading this book, but I was satisfied afterwards. The only thing that was lacking to me in this book, was more of a story. I love how this book explains more deep things about the sith. For instance:This book explains why sith lightsabers are red, what ...
