Comic Book Review: Darth Vader #16 - Marvel Comics (2016)

"The Shu-Torun War"

Written by Kieron Gillen
Art by Salvador Larroca

Darth Vader has defeated Karbin and now he has been ordered to return to Shu-Torun to ensure the empire is able to get all of the resources from the planet.  Vader is also looking to get Aphra back from the rebels who captured her.

Darth Vader returns to the planet he recently visited(read the review to that book here).  The queen he put into power is having a difficult time wearing the many hats that she must so Vader brings in his own brand of how to handle civil unrest.  Kieron Gillen is adding so much to the mythos of Darth Vader and the way he has fleshed out this character is absolutely astounding.  I look forward to purchasing this book every month.

Aphra wasn't really in this book but I'm really looking forward to seeing what happens with her.  I've speculated in other blogs about her being Rey's mom and I think that could make for really interesting storytelling and could make people want to go through and read these comics if that were to be the big reveal.

Salvador Larroca is doing a splendid job with all of the artwork for Darth Vader.  He has the task of drawing all the different worlds and capturing facial expressions very well.  This comic book series is a must have.
