Star Wars: Darth Vader Vol. 2: Shadows and Secrets
Now that Darth Vader knows that the mysterious pilot who destroyed the Death Star is his own son, he’s determined to reach him before the Emperor can. Slowly, he’s amassing his own resources, unafraid to do what he feels needs to be done but determined to keep his own secrets for now. Doctor Aphra continues to work for Vader despite her own personal fears. But the Empire is following the trail Vader and Aphra have inadvertently left behind, and it remains to be seen how Vader will react when his Imperial mission crosses paths with his personal one.
Volume 2 of Marvel’s Darth Vader comic, Shadows and Secrets, picks up where the first leaves off, and readers will find themselves quickly sucked back into the world of the dark Sith Lord. The fantastic art helps breathe new life into this famous villain, while the text perfectly captures him as we all remember him from the movies; readers will no doubt be hearing Vader’s infamous voice–and breathing–in their minds as they read. The only way this trade paperback could be better would be if it contained more than six issues; readers will eagerly be awaiting volume 3!
