The Good:It's Darth Vader. We all know he was the real star of all six Star Wars movies. This is a more raw Vader. He'll get in there and get his hands dirty rather than just sit back and use his force powers. We're seeing Vader still determined to wipe out all the Jedi. We're seeing a Vader that will jump into a situation without really thinking things all the way through. What it comes down to is we get to see Vader being the badass he's supposed to be.
I enjoyed Haden Blackman's story and was blown away by Chris Scalf's art. My complaint with sci-fi comics is usually that the colors are usually too bright. The painted nature here is just amazing. I would love to see all Star Wars comics done this way.
