Impressive. Most impressive.
In this issue, Vader is placed under the command of Grand General Tagge by order of Emperor Palpatine. While Vader obviously resents this, he is such a stoic figure with a tenacious attachment to duty that he follows the orders he deems foolish. All the while, it is clear that Vader has his own hidden plans, but these plans are not made known, which adds a nice level of mystery and complexity to the storyline.
This is rapidly climbing to the top of my favorite comics list. The writing and artwork are impeccable. My only disappointment is I now have to wait a month for the next issue.
Thanks for stopping by, and have a great day!

Man, that cover… is the interior artwork just like that or are the covers getting special treatment?
Yes, the artwork inside is of the same quality! Yesterday Marvel released issue 1 of a Princess Leia 5-issue series. I grabbed a copy. Will let you know how it is 🙂
