A new Darth Vader series is set to debut next month and Marvel Comics has shared an early preview of the first issue. Written by Greg Pak, illustrated by Raffaele Ienco, and colored by Neeraj Menon, the comic is set just after The Empire Strikes Back as Darth Vader heads out on a new mission. Along the way he’ll confront his past as he searches for information about his son, Luke Skywalker.
Editor Mark Paniccia says:
The new Darth Vader series explores some very important events from Anakin Skywalker’s past and shows a side of the Dark Lord we’ve never seen before. We’ll be uncovering secrets right along with him including a last-page shocker that’s guaranteed to have Star Wars fans talking.
Marvel also revealed this sweet variant cover by Mike Del Mundo. Main covers for Star Wars: Darth Vader will be handled by InHyuk Lee.
Star Wars: Darth Vader #1 is set for release on February 5th, 2020. The final order cutoff date for comic shops is Monday, January 13th, 2020.
