From the official solicit:
THE SHADOW IN THE FIRE! For decades, Sabé, Handmaiden of Padmé, schemed to assassinate Darth Vader, whom she believed murdered her queen. But Sabé has learned Vader’s greatest secret, and now she fights at his side, believing that someday, she may prove there is still good in him. What happens when the Handmaiden finally comes face-to-face with the Emperor, who knows all of her secrets? The Queen’s Shadow enters the crucible! Will Vader let her burn?
DARTH VADER #27 hits comic shops today! Written by yours truly with interior art by Raffele Ienco, colors by Carlos Lopez, letters by Joe Caramagna, cover by Rahzzah, and editing by Mark Paniccia, Danny Khazem, and Mikey Basso.
Here’s the solicit!
• The alliance between Darth Vader and Sabé has always seemed destined for disaster.
• After all, how long can the Dark Lord of the Sith and the idealistic handmaiden of Padmé Amidala find common ground?
• So as Vader and Sabé enter the final battle against a corrupt Imperial governor, something’s going to break.
• Will it be Vader’s cold resolve or Sabé’s true heart? And how long until Ochi of Bestoon finally makes his move?
And here’s a tease of an interior page in which Vader gets an assist from a robot buddy!

I’ve been dreaming about this one for a long time, folks — it’s a heart-wrenching exploration of the emotional experience behind Anakin’s notorious line about sand from ATTACK OF THE CLONES, and I can’t wait for you to read it.
Here’s the official solicit:
INTO THE SAND! We all know about Anakin Skywalker’s aversion to finely ground particulate matter. But what does sand mean to the Dark Lord of the Sith? When Sabé, Vader’s unlikely new ally, goes missing, Vader must confront his own dark heart in the maelstrom of a terrible sandstorm – while tapping into one of his earliest skills in a wildly unexpected way!
