    Ah, I remember that comic and definitely a solid tale despite it initially coming across as a simple fan service story. It really captured Vader's characterization of self-loathing better than most other Legend stories.

    Which is an aspect of Vader I always found fascinating. Despite how much he loathes Obi-Wan and his Master, his own self hatred seems to fuel his rage and resolve more than anything else.

    I love pixel art. Makes me wish for a Super Rogue One game.

    Speaking of old video games, I can't tell you how much I love the Dark Forces series. Why our Lord was portrayed in this particular cover of Jedi Knight (the one I owned had Jerec in it) I can only guess, but he did show up in the first one!!

    I consider the Dark Forces game series to be the best from Star Wars, outside of maybe KOTOR.

    Jerec would have been an interesting Inquisitor for Vader to work alongside of. Though I can imagine Jerec's conniving and ambitious nature probably would have gotten him force choked.

    He was later retconned to be a High Inquisitor indeed! I just loved when authors like Abel Peña worked to connect the villains of several sources into a cohesive guideline within the Empire. In Jerec´s case, he appeared having different relationships with many interesting characters, like Blackhole, Thrawn, or Ardus Kaine.

    It was said that Jerec hated Vader, though, since he would have been the prime candidate to succeed him as Sith Lord. Vader stood in his way to power, yet with all his might, Jerec never dared to challenge him. That just tells us how powerful our favorite Sith Lord was by the heights of the Empire reign...

    When I was little, I used to think that one of the most amazing things you could do if you were in the GFFA was to work with Darth Vader. Oh I felt people like Tremayne, Blackhole and Lumiya were amazing just for being able to follow his lead. And then, years and years later, I saw the issue of the Darth Vader comic were he is training the Inquisitors, and, I mean... there is harsh training, and there is the one you get to work for our Sith Lord!

    So, last issue of the Vader comic had our favorite Sith Lord facing famed bounty hunter IG-88!! Not only that, but the droid was equipped with the same device that Cylo had to shut down Vader´s cybernetics! How did this go?

    Yes, this about sums it up...

    The preview of the latest issue of current Vader comic has this line:

    I've said it before, but one of the things I like the most about canon is the way Vader is treated. Yes, he has his defeats, but everything about him seems legendary again, like it was during the times of the OT. I'm finding myself quite interested in this comic, and I've been eager to get to see this issue in particular, where Sly Moore will somehow attempt to undermine our favorite Sith. Can't wait to read it!

    I honestly love Vader’s entire arc, and how he transitions from menacing villain to redeemed father.
    I feel like TESB in particular is Vader’s chance to shine, he is not operating on behalf of Tarkin or the Emperor, but his own agenda. True, he is acting on Palpatine’s orders, but the plot to ensnare Luke and rule the galaxy is all his own.

    The comics capture the balance of Vader being vulnerable but strong. He's a survivor. It's his will that makes him legendary.

    I've said it before, but Vader's various comic runs have been some of the strongest pieces of media to come out of the Disney buy out.

    They truly show the inner character of Vader as a dark, brutal and tragic figure. I also enjoying how these comics can go from brutally dark and then brutally goofy at the same time. :p The comics strike that right balance IMO, that the best of Star Wars can usually achieve.

    Plus, the covers are always delightful.

    Vader is an angry man. But it shows his genius comes from moments of contemplation.
