Comic Reviews: Darth Vader and Justice League!

COMIC REVIEWS!!

cleanStar Wars: Darth Vader #1 (Marvel Comics)

Since Star Wars is back with a new volume, it only makes sense that big bad Darth Vader should get a new volume as well. The third volume in the Dark Lord of the Sith’s untold comic book story fills in the time between A New Hope and Empire Strikes Back, and finds Vader attempting to discover how Luke Skywalker’s existence could have been hidden from him. After some truly stunning runs from creative teams Keiron Gillen and Salvador Larocca and Charles Soule and Giuseppe Camuncoli, there’s a high bar for any new series bearing the name Darth Vader. Luckily for us, new writer Greg Pak and artist Raffaele Lenco deliver a truly great opening issue that adds new layers to not only the original trilogy, but the Prequels as well.

Starring: Felicity Jones, Diego Luna, Ben Mendehlson, Alan Tudyk, Riz Ahmed

Directed By: Gareth Edwards

More so than The Force Awakens, Rogue One needs to succeed. As the first of the anthology Star Wars films, there’s a lot at stake for the future of the franchise riding on the shoulders of director Gareth Edwards’ film. If it fails, we’d still get Star Wars movies, but ones that would strictly be within the “saga”, which would be a waste for a franchise so rich with potential. As much as I love Star Wars, I don’t want to be watching adventures of Finn and Rey in “Episode 19”. With Rogue One, the possibilities exist for the franchise to continue on outside of the Skywalker family and those around them, and Rogue One is a pretty damn good start for this area of the franchise.
