Comic Book Review: Vader Down #1 - Marvel Comics (2015)
Art by Mike Deodato
Darth Vader is on his way to Vragos Vos to find Luke Skywalker. Once there, he meets a rebel fleet and takes them on by himself.
The Darth Vader series has been one of my favorite comic book series going and now it has moved into the Star Wars series as well. Vader Down is the beginning to the ultimate six issue tie-in. I know I normally complain about any comic book that is over $3.99 in price. This doesn't seem to be an ongoing title so I'll forgive the one-off ridiculous price.
Seeing Vader taking on a fleet of rebel X-Wing fighters was awesome and his eventual take down was remarkable. The entire rebel army on Vragos Vos get word that Vader is down and Princess Leia sends everyone after him. You can imagine how Han Solo feels about this.
Luke is down as well and it should be interesting to see if/when he and Vader cross paths. I'm also looking forward to seeing other characters from each book such as Aphra, BeeTee and Triple Zero from Darth Vader's book interacting with Han Solo, Princess Leia, C-3PO and R2-D2 from the Star Wars books.
