Written by Charles Soule (Star Wars: Poe Dameron, Astonishing X-Men) and illustrated by Giuseppe Camuncoli (Amazing Spider-Man), Star Wars: Darth Vader picks up immediately after the events of Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith, revealing Darth Vader’s first steps into the dark side of the Force under the tutelage of Darth Sidious. The first issue will launch in June.
This spring and summer will be big for Star Wars tie-ins. Jason Aaron and Kieron Gillen’s Star Wars: The Screaming Citadel comics crossover launches in May (see “'Star Wars: The Screaming Citadel'”). May and June will also see the release of booster packs for the hit collectible dice and card game, Star Wars: Destiny (see “ANA Reveals Plans for 'Star Wars: Destiny'”). Disney and Lucasfilm are also resurrecting Force Friday on September 1 to launch merchandise for Star Wars: The Last Jedi (see “'Force Friday' Returns”)
