Comics from Around the Galaxy: August 8, 2018

It is a light week in Star Wars comics but with only one book coming out Darth Vader looks to make the most of it.

Darth Vader #19


‘FORTRESS VADER’ BEGINS! A JEDI makes a desperate deal. THE INQUISITORS’ mission evolves. DARTH VADER discovers a theft.

It is finally time for the start of the much anticipated Fortress Vader arc that Charles Soule has been teasing for a few months now. This comic is already one of the strongest month to month Star Wars comics and this arc looks to step up the game. We are going to finally be treated to the origin of Vader’s castle from Rogue One fame.

As most Star Wars fans would agree Vader stole the show of Rogue One. The first time you as a fan realize that Krennic has found his way to Mustafar to confront Darth Vader your mind runs wild. Your mind begins asking a question that this book looks to answer, “Why would Vader build a castle at the site of his biggest defeat?”

I am ready to see how Soule tackles this question as this book further dives into Anakin’s early days as the Sith Lord. This has been promised to be a huge story so I think we will have plenty to talk about as we head further into this story.
