Darth Vader #1 - #5

24989111From Goodreads:    The original Dark Lord of the Sith stars in his first ongoing series! Ever since Darth Vader made his first on-screen appearance, he became the one of the most popular villains to ever haunt an audience's dreams! Now, follow Vader straight from the ending of A NEW HOPE (and the pages of the new STAR WARS comic book) into his own series, showing the Empire's war with the Rebel Alliance from the other side! Writer Kieron Gillen (Uncanny X-Men, Journey Into Mystery, Iron Man) and artist Salvador Larroca (Invincible Iron Man, X-Men: No More Humans) bring us a peek behind the mask of evil!

My Thoughts:

-    I love this series just as much as the Star Wars one! Great writing and illustrations! Hats off to Marvel's team!

-    Ha ha! I'm glad Huttese is being translated for us! 

-    I love that this is the exact same story line as Star Wars but from Vader's perspective.

-    Vader really hates sand people. He has the worst kind of grudge.

-    Some of those scenes with Darth Vader and Jabba gave me chills! So awesome!

25018758Nothing from Goodreads

My Thoughts:

-    I don't have much to say about this issue as well. 

-    The story is mostly about Vader's situation and he is scheming something.

-    The last line is SO true!

25415083Goodreads Says:    When a Dark Lord needs help, who can he turn to? Meet Aphra—the galaxy’s foremost raider of lost weaponry! Plus: could these be the deadly droids she’s looking for?

My Thoughts:

-    Aphra is SO awesome! She is techie, snarky, and a bit Han Soloish.

-    Those droids that mimic R2D2 and C3PO are pretty creepy. 

25762976From Goodreads:    Revenge of the Battle Droids??? Vader returns to Geonosis to build his army! The Dark Lord’s ascension continues!

My Thoughts:

-    Since Vader is returning to Geonosis, we get a little flash back panel from the movies. It is kinda cool how they tied that in.

-    Evil droids are awesome!

-    Why is Aphra so willing to follow Vader? I don't get her motives.

-    There is some crazy stuff going down on Geonosis! Wow!

25762985Goodreads Bit:    Vader continues his investigation into the Emperor's secrets...Not everyone wants him to find out the truth. Who are Vader's mysterious new rivals?

My Thoughts:

-    I never really understood how fragile Darth Vader's relationship with the Emperor was. 

-    These wannabes are no match for the really force! 

-    What is the Emperor doing? He is crazy!
