Darth Vader hunts down a Jedi librarian and someone else is trying to assassinate him – just another day in the life of the Dark Lord of the Sith!

Charles Soule is really floundering for purchase on a solid storyline with his second Vader book. What’s interesting about hunting down a Jedi librarian or yet another nobody assassin when Vader is such an invincible, unstoppable force? There’s absolutely no tension in the narrative, no-one can stand up to him and he always gets what he wants. At leas
These are so good. This could be a movie or TV show. The only problem is it's hard to see Jedi die. This story focuses on Jocasta Nu and I do like that cranky old lady as she is the librarian. She is trying to save information to restart the Jedi. She snuck back into the Jedi Temple where the empire was waiting for her.

I really don't understand why Darth Vader would let himself be enslaved by Palpatine. He could do anything. I guess he really is lost, we'll obviously. He is such a broken man. Th

Two arcs in to this new “Darth Vader” series, and I think I can confidently say that I actually prefer Charles Soule’s take on Darth Vader to Kieron Gillen’s. Which, believe me, I couldn’t be more surprised about.

I loved Gillen’s 25-issue run – it told a great story, introduced cool new characters like Doctor Aphra, Triple Zero, and BT-One - and it even had the temerity to have thematic depth. In terms of artistry, it was nothing short of immaculate, and while perhaps a tad emotionally cold at t

Charles Soule's Vader series continues to be very entertaining, and a big improvement over Kieron Gillen's stagnant and drawn out series. In Legacy's End, Vader keeps on his path of eliminating any Jedi left in the galaxy, meanwhile trying to uncover a conspiracy against his life. Just like in the first volume, there are enough twists and turns to keep the reader interested, as well as several intriguing connections to other Star Wars titles, like The Grand Inquisitor and the rest of the Inquisi ...more
Great story. Charles Soule really gets Vader and his relationship with the Emperor. Art is damn good as well.

Just when I thought the Darth Vader comic couldn't get any better it got much better. This comic takes everything good about the first volume and improves on it in almost every way. The story focuses on Vader killing the remaining Jedi after Revenge of the Sith. In this volume he’s hired by the Emperor to track down his former Jedi friend Jocasta. (view spoiler) ...more

There are so many Star Wars graphic novel series now, I can't remember details of each one from volume to volume. With the current Darth Vader series, however, that doesn't matter. It's just Vader cruising through the galaxy killing people. That makes it sound like I'm about to write a negative review, but in fact, I really like this series. Charles Soule gets Vader's character right, and the interactions between Vader and Palpatine are interesting. Because the ongoing plot arcs are not complica ...more

This is a collection that takes place after Revenge of the Sith. In this one, Darth Vader is in pursuit of a Jedi that was a minor character in the prequels. This collection also incorporates some Star Wars Rebels into its story.

I had to give this a collection five stars just in the lone fact that it made me care about a character from the movies that I never even thought about. I enjoyed her story so much and I loved the connection to other stories. Once again, the artwork is top notch and ther

Soule is doing a great job with the new Vader. To be honest I liked the Gillen stuff too. This volume Vader is tasked to hunt down more Jedi ( gasp!) and in particular one of the old Jedi archives guardians. It starts off sort of slow but there are some cool moments 1/2 way through, all I will say is you get to see that Vader is not a one dimensional killer, he has memories and feelings that play a big part of his reasoning. The second story was another mission that Vader is sent on and he is ac ...more

"Legacy's End" has it all:

- Space Librarians!
- Space Librarians fighting bad guys!
- Darth Vader acting mostly bad!
- Darth Vader sometimes acting...good?!

Another solid entry in a solid series.

Spectacular! Charles Soule and Giuseppe Camuncoli have put together a well told set of issues to this latest Darth Vader series published by Marvel. Soule has really capture the flavor and dialogue for everyone's favorite Lord of the Sith. Vader's got a situation that has to be taken care of swiftly and without fail. First he will have to deal with the threat of a certain Jedi librarian and then take down a few bounty hunters who have been hired to assassinate him. What is a Sith Lord to do? The ...more

With his new lightsaber in tow and the power of the Inquisitorus behind him, Darth Vader has a new mission - find and capture Jocasta Nu, the head of the Jedi Archives, before she ruins everything for Emperor Palpatine.

Charles Soule's Darth Vader is very raw; since it's so recent after his transformation from Anakin into Vader, you can feel the anger oozing off of him, and his drive to not just prove himself to the Emperor, but to himself as well. The ultimate conclusion to the first arc of this

Public library copy.

I would not recommend this title and have no intention of buying the book later. The stories were better by the prior writer. Beyond having characters from Star Wars Rebels appear alongside Vader. this was a plot retread of Vader duped by the Emperor who keeps testing him on suicide missions. It's good enough to read for free, however.

Y esta serie no hace más que mejorar y mejorar con cada capítulo. Es genial ver como nos dan a un Vader en su estado más puro y oscuro en sus inicios como Sith, alcanzando las expectativas de los más fans.
Si siguen así hasta el final, valdrá la pena comprar toda la serie. Porque, señores, esto es canela fina.

"You have done well, Lord Vader." And soon Skywalker will be one of us. A very interesting new comic, where we focus on what you would believe is a very weak Jedi, the librarian Jocasta Nu. But no. She is old and awesome and kicks ass. I really like this new volume, where we get to see Vader in his prime again. You can also see the remnants of Anakin Skywalker in him still, which is some of the best about this. The art is still incredible and it doesnt use this hyperrealistic art form which I do ...more

This again surprised me since it shows that despite the brutality in him, he can still make some choices that aren’t as evil as usual. It’s weird.

Wonderful continuity

I love where this story is going! The use of certain elements is fascinating and I also cannot wait to see who else connects with Vader/Anakin. I can't get enough of this and can't wait for the next issue!

This is probably the most disappointing SW comic I've ever read. The story was uninteresting, the characters weren't themselves, and a host of other problems.

If you want a good SW story, don't bother.

The series under Soule continues to be fantastic. The writing and art is some of the best in comics right now. I especially appreciated that they somewhat redeemed Jocasta Nu, whose attitude in Attack of the Clones is dreadfully stereotypical of librarians. I mean, she's still a Jedi, but that can't be helped I suppose.

Brilliantly links Vader to characters from The prequel movie trilogy, and introduces characters from Star Wars Rebels into The Sith Lords back story and strengthens his motivations when we see him in the original movie trilogy. Tremendous artwork which fits perfectly into the tone of the Star Wars Universe.

Strong Art and scripting as the Marvel Star Wars tales continue to fill in the gaps between the movies. This 2nd Volume of the second Marvel Darth Vader series takes place between Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope.

Soule and Co., handle a Young Darth Vader's ambivalence with Palpatine's "Lessons" as well as his hatred towards the disrespect pointed his way by a bevy of lesser Empire officials.
Soule does tackle something I've found to be troubling throughout the SW universe, namely, the Empire's
