Star Wars: Darth Vader #7 Review

The Polt

After receiving his punishment from Palpatine, and being left with just one arm, we find Vader on a familiar looking shoreline on Mustafar, the same way he was left by Obi-Wan Kenobi. There he must find a way to rebuild himself, but ordered by Palpatine not to use the force. So in much pain he drags himself to the ruins of the Techno Union Installation. But, this isn’t the only problem Vader will face while there. He learns quickly that Palpatine sent him another challenge, a assassin of the Sith… Ochi of Beston. If that name sounds familiar think The Rise of Skywalker. There is another character revealed at the end of this comic. I wont tell you who it is, but if you read the Rise of Skywalker Novel you will know who it is.

The Art

Artist Raffaele Ienco, colorist Neeraj Menon, and letterer Joe Caramagna did an amazing job of telling Greg Pak’s story. The colors used throughout the comic made it so you could see Vader’s pain and anger. And like in the previous Vader comics the red flashbacks make you feel compassion for Vader, as they take you to his memories of past events. Even the text placement is great throughout this comic, and even helps more of the art reach out to you.

My Thoughts

I can not get enough of the Star Wars: Darth Vader comics. With this series taking place right after The Empire Strikes back, it shows a Darth Vader that is conflicted and vulnerable, and still may have some good in him at the time. I really don’t have any complaints with the issue at all. Greg Pak does a amazing job with the storyline and does not take anything away from it with the flashbacks. Well, now that I think about it I do have one complaint, why has this not been made into an animated series? If you have not read this comic or the series yet, go do it now!
