DARTH VADER #7 – MARVEL COMICS – (W) Kieron Gillen (A) Salvador Larroca
This title has drifted a little from the early connection it had with the main Star Wars book, but this issue ties things back together with Vader visiting the childhood home of Luke shortly after Luke’s fight with Fett. The Fett Fight. He uncovers a little more about the son he never knew (spoilers) and proceeds to destroy all evidence of his existence. Moving on, Vader confronts and exterminates a rival smuggler, handing control of his territory to the Hutts. Vast quantities of credits are seized and sent on their way back to the Emperor, but Vader has a task for Aphra which may or may not involve leaking the transport details to some old friends. Hint: it does involve that. That’s exactly what she does.
