Marvel’s ‘Star Wars’ Comic Delves Into Period Between ‘A New Hope’ & ‘The Empire Strikes Back’
If you’re hungry for new Star Wars stories to hold you over until Rogue One and Episode VIII, you should look into the new comics that are being produced by Marvel. The storylines are interesting and the artwork is often striking. Some of them focus on a single character like Darth Vader, Lando and Chewbacca while others focus on a time period such as Marvel’s Star Wars which plunges into the period of time between A New Hope and The Empire Strikes Back.
Here is one of my favorite moments from Marvel’s Star Wars. After striking down his arch nemesis Obi-Wan Kenobi aboard the Death Star and narrowly avoiding being destroyed along with it, it is no surprise that Vader would begin searching for answers. What never occurred to me is that Vader may have followed the clues all the way back to his home planet. Then it makes sense that he would have ended up on the planet’s most notorious gangster’s doorstep, right?
Here’s what a part of that meeting looked like according to Star Wars Vol. 2 #4. It turns surprisingly poignant at the end. (The page scans are from ComicNewbies.com)
