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!

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!
