Marvel Star Wars Comics Review: Darth Vader #5

This review of Darth Vader #5 contains minor spoilers.

Now we know the truth about Mustafar.

The rocky and molten planet is far more than we ever thought it was and could be.

It’s name forever enshrined with not just Anakin Skywalker’s first mission for Darth Sidious, but as the fulcrum that destroyed who Anakin was and turned him, completely, into Darth Vader Dark Lord of the Sith.

You’ll be reading a lot of hyperbole about this issue — written by Charles Soule, penciled by Giuseppe Camucoli, inked by Cam Smith, colored by David Curiel, lettered by VC’s Joe Caramagna and edited by Heather Antos and Jordan D. White.

It’s true, all of it, to paraphrase Han Solo in The Force Awakens.

Darth Vader #5 may well go down in Star Wars lore as the most pivotal tale of how Vader forever cast off any trappings of whatever good lay buried deep within him. Read more

The result? Pain, horror and revenge.

Darth Vader — not yet ascendant in his quest to capture and bleed the lightsaber of Jedi Master Kirak Infil’a — falls deeper into the abyss of his own making. Yet, at the same time, readers see how much power he truly has and how callous he will soon become.
