'Star Wars: Darth Vader - Black, White & Red' #1 First Look Embraces the Dark Side

A special first look at 'Star Wars: Darth Vader - Black, White & Red' #1 offers a glimpse at stories by Jason Aaron, Peach Momoko, Klaus Janson, and more.

Learn the power of the Dark Side with this first look at STAR WARS: DARTH VADER - BLACK, WHITE & RED #1, an anthology issue crafted by an all-star lineup of comics talent.

The latest in Marvel’s BLACK, WHITE & BLOOD line, STAR WARS: DARTH VADER - BLACK, WHITE & RED #1 boasts stories by Jason Aaron, Leonard Kirk, Peach Momoko, Torunn Grønbekk, and Klaus Janson. The issue sees Aaron team up with Kirk for a rousing saga that will span all four issues, while Momoko contributes her first-ever interior work to a STAR WARS comic. Likewise, acclaimed writer Torunn Grønbekk will make her STAR WARS debut in a story with Janson.

"'All I am surrounded by is fear. And dead men.' That moment from STAR WARS: VADER DOWN is still one of my favorite things I've written during my time at Marvel,” Aaron told StarWars.com. "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 said. “It's such a thrill to use this unique storytelling approach on one of the greatest villains in the galaxy."
