STAR WARS: DARTH VADER #2

(W) Kieron Gillen (A) Salvador Larroca (CA) Adi Granov

The original Dark Lord of the Sith stars in his first ongoing series!

Ever since Darth Vader made his first on-screen appearance, he became the one of the most popular villains to ever haunt an audience's dreams! Now, follow Vader straight from the ending of A NEW HOPE (and the pages of the new STAR WARS comic book) into his own series, showing the Empire's war with the Rebel Alliance from the other side! Writer Kieron Gillen (Uncanny X-Men, Journey Into Mystery, Iron Man) and artist Salvador Larroca (Invincible Iron Man, X-Men: No More Humans) bring us a peek behind the mask of evil!

Did...did that guy just give vader some lip?

Seriously though, the art looks stunning. I kinda drifted away from Star Wars and its EU throughout the years, but I might get into that series afterall. It's Vader afterall.

The first was great. Gillen really knows how Vader ticks. Cant wait to see where this goes.

What is the most intimidating sounding space ship name that we can think of? How about "Super Star Destroyer Annihilator"

This is great. I like how this shows Vader as a "hero" of the empire. Just because he's evil doesn't mean everyone sees him as such.

Love proud/strutting/fabulous Vader on the cover! This looks to be more awesomeness from this series.

A question, a bit of topic, about the first issue from someone who recently read it, how come Jabba is episode VI fat? Wasn't he like the snail human snail-size from Special Edition episode IV like a month ago (in the comic time)? (Or has the SE been altered and gotten rid of the embarrassing Jabba/Solo scene? Havn't seen any SEs since the first.)

@ilgoga: Well seeing as 'The Clone Wars' is now cannon and Jabba showed up a few times in that as a big fat Hutt I guess the SE got retconned.
