The Burning Seas tells a rather epic tale. It is the Imperial Invasion of Mon Cala where the Calamari reside (Admiral Ackbar).

Vader and Tarkin participate in the start of the Empire's moves against planets deemed too independent. An Imperial Star Destroyer bearing Tarkin and an Imperial Ambassador come to Mon Cala to speak with the Calimari King. However, the Ambassador's assassination gives Tarkin the pretext he needs to invade. Vader, meanwhile, seeks out a former Jedi who is helping the Calamari form a resistance. An instructive look at the way the Empire conducts diplomacy. The Vader-Master Barr confrontation was also instructive.

Without too many spoilers- Vol 3 continues the strong story and quality of the first volumes. Vader is developing into a powerful Sith Lord and the Empire's tendrils are spreading. The artwork has been excellent in all three volumes. If the new Disney Star Wars depresses you then come read some Darth Vader. Star Wars as it was meant to be. The identity of the Inquisitors was also interesting since one of them I found in another comic mucking about as a Jedi during the Clone Wars. Interesting. Anyways if you are a Star Wars fan then you will like this. Any Vader fan will love it.
