Star Wars: Darth Vader and the Lost Command

This is a graphic novel by Dark Horse comics. It tells an interesting story of how desperate Vader is to comply with his master's wishes.

When Grand Moff Tarkin's son goes missing with an Imperial Fleet, it's is up to Lord Vader to locate and rescue the important boy.

As with all things Star Wars, things don't go according to plan and Vader finds himself at the mercy of his blistered and psychologically-damaged intellect.

The artwork is up to par with what you would expect from Dark Horse and the story is something that helps fill in gaps of Anakin-turned-Vader's character.

You'll find his mind haunted by the death of his wife and desperate to be close to her once again.

This is almost what Star Wars fans would have liked to see on the big screen instead of the whiny, pathetic excuse of a man/boy of the prequels.

Either way, this is a find addition to the Star Wars lore.

This book was provided for review, at no cost, by Dark Horse Comics.
