Last year, we had a lot of fun exploring the horror tales unfolding inside Vader’s Castle. Now, IDW Publishing is taking us back to the Halloween event with Return to Vader’s Castle, a five-week event kicking off in October.

Shipping weekly throughout October, this five-issue story pairs Star Wars Adventures mainstay writer (and returning Vader’s Castle scribe) Cavan Scott with Eisner Award-winning artist Francesco Francavilla (Afterlife with Archie) for the story of torment deep within Fortress Vader, one that frames five tales of terror to thrill young and mature readers alike!

“I am over the moon to be returning to Vader’s Castle for another helping of Halloween horror from a galaxy, far, far away. And what better way to celebrate the scariest time of the year than by focusing on the villains of the Star Wars saga?” says Scott. “The response to our last visit to Mustafar was phenomenal, and I hope fans will join us once again, embracing the dark side in the company of Sith, warlords, and crazed Imperial scientists.”

Each issue focuses on a different villain, each story written by Cavan Scott and illustrated by a renowned comic creator:

#1: Darth Maul, illustrated by Megan Levens: “Maul is the counterpoint and nemesis of my
favorite character from the saga, Obi-Wan Kenobi, so getting to tell a part of his story (and draw
those fabulous tattoos) was something I didn’t hesitate to sign up for!”

#2: Grand Moff Tarkin, illustrated by Kelley Jones: “Although I rooted against him, I always had
a sneaking admiration for Tarkin, as he was – in all honesty – the real evil of the Empire: cold,
calculating, and all too human!”

#3: Asajj Ventress, illustrated by Nick Brokenshire: “I can’t wait to show you the super-creepy
shenanigans we’re getting up to in the Star Wars universe!”

#4: Jabba the Hutt, illustrated by Nicoletta Baldari: “These are the comics you’re looking for!”

#5: Darth Vader, illustrated by Charles Paul Wilson III: “I told IDW that I’d draw the Kessel Run
in less than 14 parsecs if they could get me on this book again, and they told me I could do it…
but only if it was in under 12.”

Can not wait! This is going to be another fun adventure for Star Wars and comic book fans.
