Marvel Comics has revealed plans (via SFFGazette.com) to shed new light on some of Darth Vader's most intense battles and terrifying pursuits in this April's Star Wars: Darth Vader – Black, White & Red.
The latest series in Marvel's “Black, White & Blood” line that's previously spotlighted deadly characters such as Wolverine, Elektra, and Deadpool, the format presents these stories in stunning black, white, and, rather appropriately, red. Now, we're going to see Vader unleashed like never before in tales of terror set throughout the Dark Lord of the Sith's brutal history.
The stories that await in Star Wars: Darth Vader – Black, White & Red will be crafted by an all-star lineup of comics talent, with the title headlined by Avengers scribe Jason Aaron.
The superstar New York Times bestselling writer who helped launch Marvel's current Star Wars comics to huge success in 2015 and penned some of Vader's most iconic comic book moments along the way, returns to a Galaxy Far, Far Away, teaming up with fellow Star Wars mastermind Leonard Kirk for a rousing saga that will span all four issues.
The first issue will also include a story written and drawn by visionary creator Peach Momoko in her first-ever interior work for a Star Wars comic and mark the Star Wars debut of acclaimed writer Torunn Grønbekk.
“'All I am surrounded by is fear. And dead men.' That moment from 'Vader Down' is still one of my favorite things I've written during my time at Marvel,” Aaron says. “I loved getting to let Darth Vader cut loose with all his power in such an epic way. And I couldn't pass up the chance to revel in the dark side again and put Vader in an even more perilous situation…and then see how he carves his way out.”
“This is a project we’ve been waiting to do for a while and we’ve got more amazing talent lined up that I can’t wait to announce,” Editor Mark Paniccia adds. “It’s such a thrill to use this unique storytelling approach on one of the greatest villains in the galaxy.”
