Comic Book Review: Darth Vader #15 - Marvel Comics (2016)
Written by Kieron Gillen

The conclusion of the Vader Down story line pits Darth Vader vs. Commander Karbin. Luke is looking for Princess Leia. Chewbacca and Han Solo are emboiled in a fight with the Wookie warrior Black Krrsantan.
I love how, despite the story line coming to a conclusion, everything continues. Fans of The Force Awakens will be speculating about these comic book issues as we still have lingering questions from the film and the comic series may give direction to answer our queries. It may not be anything either, but these are some of the best comic books being written right now.
If you find yourself more of a fan of the original Star Wars trilogy, you may want to pick up Darth Vader and Star Wars. Pick up the Vader Down story line in comic book form and see if there are trade paperbacks to catch up. Better yet, try out the Marvel Unlimited service as it is one of the best subscription services available.
These comics feel very much like you are watching the films. The way the characters talk and interact with one another is done so remarkably well. Darth Vader is one of my must have series each and every month.
