2020.02.05 – Greg Pak signs STAR WARS: DARTH VADER #1 and JHU Comic Books in NYC!

I’m signing STAR WARS: DARTH VADER #1 at JHU Comic Books in NYC on Wednesday, February 5 from 6 to 8 pm!

Hugely excited about this one. The story follows the Dark Lord in the wake of EMPIRE STRIKES BACK on his mission of vengeance to find everyone who hid his son Luke from him. The book’s drawn by Raffaela Ienco, colored by Neeraj Menon, lettered by Joe Caramagna, and edited by Mark Paniccia and Tom Groneman with covers by Inhyuk Lee. Everyone’s working at the top of their game and I think this one’s turning into something very special — hope you enjoy it!

Check out previews for Issues #1 here and Issue #2 here — and see you on February 5!

Mando grape

Some goofy fun: I found a grape that reminded me of the Mandalorian. Posted about it on Twitter. Hundreds of people shared it. And ComicBook.com wrote about it. Now I’m completing the circle by writing about that. Enjoy.

It’s spring in the normally quiet town of Hawkins, Indiana.

As tensions rise and fractures begin to form in the group, a new kid shows up to AV club with a Betamax Camcorder and a vision. The new Spielberg-wannabe friend, Joey Kim, wants to make a zombie horror movie based on Will’s drawings, and in the process they come to terms with the real horrors they’ve already faced.

Comics Written by Greg Pak Darth Vader Star Wars

STAR WARS: DARTH VADER #1 coming this February, written by Greg Pak with art by Raffaela Ienco!

I’m beyond thrilled to reveal the cover and solicit for STAR WARS: DARTH VADER #1, a new series starting in February 2020, written by yours truly with art by Raffaele Ienco and covers by Inhyuk Lee!

It’s been a massive joy to work on this book. We’re tackling what I think is the most compelling and unexplored period of Vader’s life — the moment after EMPIRE STRIKES BACK when he grapples with Luke’s refusal to join him on the Dark Side. We’re getting the chance to dig into some shocking corners of Vader’s past and present — taking this story to some pretty astounding places. And Raffaele’s interiors and Inhyuk Lee’s covers are already blowing my mind.

Please do ask your local retailer to add it to your pull list if you’re interested!

AS FATHER AND SON!”

THE TRAGEDY OF DARTH VADER CONTINUES

In the shattering climax of The Empire Strikes Back, Darth Vader infamously reveals his true relationship to Luke Skywalker and invites his son to rule the galaxy at his side. But Luke refuses — plunging into the abyss beneath Cloud City rather than turn to the Dark Side. We all remember Luke’s utter horror in this life-altering moment. But what about Vader? In this new epic chapter in the Darth Vader saga, the dark lord grapples with Luke’s unthinkable refusal and embarks on a bloody mission of rage-filled revenge against everything and everyone who had a hand in hiding and corrupting his only son. But even as he uncovers the secrets of Luke’s origins, Vader must face shocking new challenges from his own dark past.

Writer Greg Pak and artist Raffaele Ienco unleash Darth Vader on his dark quest of vengeance and discovery this February! With covers by InHyuk Lee!

Agents of Atlas Comics Written by Greg Pak Ronin Island Star Wars

2019.11.13 – STAR WARS #74, RONIN ISLAND #8, and AGENTS OF ATLAS #4 in stores today!

Big day today! I’ve got three books in comic book stores — STAR WARS #74, RONIN ISLAND #8, and AGENTS OF ATLAS #4!

STAR WARS #74, drawn by Phil Noto with letters by Clayton Cowles, is the penultimate chapter in our run. The three different threads of our story come together as our heroes scramble to entrap Vader himself! Featuring the Wookiee/Sith fight you’ve always wanted!

RONIN ISLAND #8 features art by Giannis Milonogiannis, colors by Irma Kniivila, and letters by Simon Bowland. This remains one of my favorite projects I’ve worked on this decade, and the emotional stakes ramp up again in this issue for Hana and Kenichi. In a rave review, Fanbase Press says:

In issue number 8, a character is faced with having to make a difficult choice, and they don’t just continue on unaffected by it; they stop, and the reader is allowed to live in the character’s emotions. It’s a beautiful moment, and one of the reasons I love Ronin Island.

You can read the whole review here.

AGENTS OF ATLAS #4 features art by Nico Leon and Pop Mhan, colors by Rachelle Rosenberg, and letters by Joe Sabino. I love the little character moments that Nico and Pop are rendering so beautifully in this book. Don’t miss Wave and Sword Master finally getting paid and Isaac flirting with Raz! And yes, we’re getting up into major cliffhanger action here — with big ramifications for the upcoming ATLANTIS ATTACKS series!

Ask your local comic shop to hold all these comics for ya! Thanks so much!
