"He’s stoic and operatic. You know that bit in the introduction to Dark Knight Returns which talks about how Batman doesn’t whine, and his passions are operatic, etc? That’s very much how I see Vader. Keeping his grandeur and fundamental tragedy is what drives me." -- Kieron Gillen

'I’m not that patriotic, so don’t feel any need to side with the Imperial powers. The opposite, really. However, I do feel a need to understand him and be fascinated by him. “Why do people do bad things” is one of those core things that bubble along in my writing. The sins of Empire fascinate me.' -- Kieron Gillen

"The Shu-Torun War is basically us doing a proper war comic. So far Vader has been working on a relative small scale. Shu-Torun is about getting the AT-ATs out." -- Kieron Gillen

This comes from Vader's Quest #1. It's now under the "Legends" line which basically means it was thrown out of continuity after Mickey Mouse took over but it's still a neat scene IMO. 

Warning for some blood/violence.

"Bar the movies, my main influences when thinking about the series are The Godfather and House Of Cards. In other words, I’m looking for compelling, fascinating, horrifying and understandable – but not necessarily sympathetic. With all our cast, I want people to not be able to look away – and still, in it recognise something true about us as living creatures." -- Keiron Gillen

One of the questions created by the prequels is how come Darth Vader never recognized C-3PO in the original trilogy if he was the one who created him? This comic answers that question.

"Generally speaking, me doing a Darth Vader book is something that does make a worrying amount of sense. One of the more common critiques of my Superhero work is always that I spend too much time with the bad guys. Well, here, this isn’t a problem." -- Kieron Gillen

26 out of 82 (yes I actually counted up the two page spreads this time cause, suprising to myself this is the post where I used up the most pages).

I'm going to throw up 5 more pages of Vol 2, and 19 pages of vol 3 (out of 85+). Since the Jedi were inspired by the Samurai movies of Akira Kurosawa (especially The Hidden Fortress) it's only fitting that in the manga adaptation some Samurai tropes and Kenjutsu stances are used.

In this installment:

-Obi-Wan is bad-ass
-Naughty tentacles
-Female Advice

7 pages from Star Wars #3 and 4 pages from Star Wars #4

That means there are some big explosions, some political discussions of the post-Death-Star-kablooey! situation (They don't call it that, but you know they would if they could) and also rather a lot of Luke in a vest doing Jedi training. (Look, no one else has posted from this issue, so I get dibs on what pages get posted!)

Big explosions and blond farmboy angst! )

Since Neko was kind enough to share with us what Star Wars might have been, and since not too long ago we saw the early Marvel adaptation, let's see how it gets handled in another country.


*note this is more or less just pages I liked... most of us know the story, I might post from the later volumes, but If I do it'll probably just be to see stuff like Alderaan's destruction*

Also I don't have an accurate page count on this book since Comixology counts two page spreads as a single page, and I will admit I'm too lazy to count those all up... It's over 80 though, so I got lots of room.

I quite liked the latest issue of Darth Vader, which I picked up today.  I thought I'd share my favorite moment from it:
