DarthVader3

What do you do with Darth Vader? What story do you tell with him outside the main arc of the original Star Wars trilogy? Kieron Gillen’s answer appears to be to set one of the most prolific villains in fictional history off balance and then to set him on his own mission. This isn’t about Vader doing missions for the Emperor. It isn’t even about him rooting out and destroying the rebels. So what is it about then?

GuardiansOfTheGalaxy25

The cosmically-enhanced heroes have been driven back from Hala, the elder Beast has begun to crumble under the weight of his life choices and Cyclops, Iceman and Groot have been captured by Mister Knife and the Slaughter Lords. All that, and we’ve only just reached the halfway point of The Black Vortex with this issue.

PrincessLeia1

Picking up right from the final scene of the original Star Wars film (Episode IV: A New Hope for the rare person out there who isn’t aware) is a good way to immediately ingrain this story in star wars lore, but it doesn’t take Mark Waid long to strike out on his own path as he endeavours to fill in the gap between Yavin IV and Hoth, at least in Princess Leia’s life.
