Darth Vader #20

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.

Star Wars #18While the Han and Luke‘s story is held to a minimum as nothing more than a comic interlude, the majority of Star Wars #18 focuses on Leia and Stana Starros getting stuck in the middle of the hijacking of Sunspot Prison while attempting to get some useful answers from Aphra. With all hell breaking loose, including dozens of killer robots shooting up the place and a masked man with ties to Leia’s past calmly executing prisoners, the three women must put aside their individual differences and find a way to work together if they have any hope of survival.

Darth Vader #19Darth Vader‘s mission on Shi-torum comes to a close as the Dark Lord of the Sith is able to fight off the attack of the force-sensitives Morit and Aiolin before returning to the front lines and offering Trios the Imperial support the new queen needs to put down the anti-Imperial rebellion on the planet.

The manner in which Aiolin falls is surprising, although it works as a callback Vader’s lightsaber battle with Obi-Wan Kenobi in Revenge of the Sith. With the battle already halted, and knowing he can’t possibly best Vader on his own, Morit’s actions to sacrifice his sister are perplexing. Whatever his true motivations, I’ve little doubt we will see the him return before too long.
