Yeah...the assassin is not so impressive. But I dug the Vader stuff. Between this and his action in the Free Comic Day Star Wars issue, he's got some good stuff going on. Cool to see him find a trap that even the Emperor didn't notice, especially since some of the other Vader series recently have been about the Emperor making Darth feel like a putz so he learns his subordinate role in the Empire.
And I'm interested to see what role magic plays in the Star Wars universe.
