The Dark Lord of the Sith Rises! Your New Look at DARTH VADER #1 – Charles Soule & Giuseppe Camuncoli Bring You Darth Vader as You’ve Never Seen Before!
The Press Release:
The most fearsome villain in the entire galaxy returns for an all-new series — Prepare for DARTH VADER #1! This June, superstar writer Charles Soule (Poe Dameron, Astonishing X-Men) will team with chartbusting artist Giuseppe Camuncoli (Amazing Spider-Man) to chronicle the epic rise of one of the greatest villains in all of fiction!
When Anakin Skywalker fell, both to the pull of the dark side and to the blade of Obi-Wan Kenobi, he rose back up, more machine than man. Having lost everything that he once held dear, the one who was prophesized to bring balance to the Force instead chose a darker path. Now, in a story set directly after the events of Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith, he must take his first steps into a darker world as…Darth Vader, Dark Lord of the Sith!
“With the all-new DARTH VADER series, we will finally get the chance to witness iconic moments in the Star Wars galaxy through the lens of one of its most famous characters,” said series editor, Jordan D. White. “With Charles Soule and Giuseppe Camuncoli at the helm, we are going to spotlight the construction of Vader’s red lightsaber, the fallout of Order 66, the beginnings of the Inquisitor program, the rise of an Empire, and many more sinister moments never seen before!”
This June, the Marvel’s smash-hit Star Wars comics venture to a new era of a galaxy far, far away! Take a walk on the dark side as Soule & Camuncoli bring you the must read DARTH VADER #1 – available wherever comics are sold this June!

PiercingMetal Thoughts: You don’t know the power of the Dark Side!!!! I have to be honest with you and admit that I never followed through on my plan to keep up with the enigmatic Darth Vader with the series that we got a couple of years ago (or was it last year? I forget). I was meaning to since I love the character but after the first issue I missed a few of them and with so many comic stores not holding a stockpile of back issues anymore, it was too much of a task for me to complete the proper run. For those of you who don’t know me, when I begin a series I like to make sure I am adding every single issue to my collection. A lot of you comic book collectors are probably the same way but I digress. This new series does sound interesting and after the first issue I will plan on following through by telling my retailer to add it to my pull list. They’ll have me for at least a half year for sure. I say it like that since I like to add the collected editions to my bookshelf as I am running low on space in the long boxes. You diehard Star Wars maniacs can let me know what you think about the new series and please enjoy some preview pages that were sent around to the press channels. “May The Force Be With You”….
