Has he gotten away with it? That seems to be the case as Darth Vader survives encounters with both the Emperor and Inspector Thanoth. The former appears unaware of his apprentice’s machinations while the later will offer no threat to the Dark Lord of the Sith following this issue. While his plans are far from complete, there’s still the missing Aphra to deal with, it would appear Darth Vader has made it through events unscathed.
Vader’s story is truncated here to include a rather lengthy backup story involving Aphra’s robots. While I enjoyed Vader’s confrontations with both the Emperor and Thanoth, personally I found the backstory to largely be a waste of space leaving me with a mixed reaction to the comic’s latest issue. Hit-and-Miss.
