Star Wars: Vader Down #1 | Writer: Jason Aaron | Artist: Mike Deodato | Colorist: Frank Martin | Publisher: Marvel Comics | The Road to Episode VII at Forces of Geek.com
Vader Down takes us on a journey where we seek to find the answer to an intriguing question; What happens when Darth Vader is all alone against the entire might of the Rebel Alliance?
There have been a lot of comics over the years that show an outgunned Dark Lord overcoming insurmountable odds with the swipe of his crimson blade. Some of his victories in these situations have been extremely creative and worthy of the Vader’s ruthless reputation while other incarnations left a lot to be desired.
When putting Darth Vader in any canonical situation, you have to respect the mythos and pathos of the character while being very selective in when, and if, he loses a battle.
