[Solicitations] Marvel launches new Darth Vader series in June

Just when you thought the adventures of Darth Vader were over, Marvel is relaunching the popular Star Wars series with a new #1 and a new creative team.

Joining the Dark Lord of the Sith will be writer Charles Soule and artist Giuseppe Camuncoli.

“I’m so excited that we get to tell more stories about the best villain of all time…and this time, we get to show his very first steps into the Dark Side,” said series editor, Jordan D. White in a press release from Marvel. “I was blown away by some of the stuff we plan to show in this series…and I think readers will be, too—from hardcore Star Wars fanatics to those who want to see more of that deadly threat from the end of Rogue One. Charles has an evil streak in him that readers might have seen whenever he’s written Palpatine in the past. Now, that comes front and center.”

When Anakin Skywalker fell, both to the pull of the dark side and to the blade of Obi-Wan Kenobi, he rose back up, more machine than man. Having lost everything that he once held dear, the one who was prophesized to bring balance to the Force instead chose a darker path. Now, in a story set directly after the events of Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith, he must take his first steps into a darker world as…Darth Vader, Dark Lord of the Sith!

Darth Vader #1 is set to arrive in June 2017.
