Marvel’s Darth Vader No. 5 Arrives Sept. 16
Vader Searches The Galaxy For Skywalker Secrets
There’s no getting around spoilers as we discuss this chapter of Marvel’s current Darth Vader run.
Frankly, the series is amazing and full of secrets.
So, if you are spoiler averse… Move along. Move along.
Still here? Good.
Not too long ago, MickeyBlog.com posted news about chapter four of the series:
That issue was spectacular, as Vader encountered many familiar faces on Naboo, as he searched for the tomb of Padmé Amidala.
Really, if you are not reading this series you are seriously missing out.
So, let’s fast forward. Recently, the StarWars.com team posted:
The Sith Lord, obsessed with discovering the truth about the fate of Padmé Amidala and exacting revenge on those who hid Luke Skywalker from him, has come to Naboo in search of answers. There, he finds the tomb of his wife from a life long gone — as well as her loyal handmaidens. In StarWars.com’s first look at Marvel’s Darth Vader #5, Vader finally stands before Padmé’s final resting place.
Check out the below teaser image:
Seriously, kids. This is a weird, spooky storyline, which is really heart rendering for anyone who intently absorbed the prequels. It’s also wonderful to see the cohesion between the books and the comics (a la E.K. Johnston’s Queen’s series).
