My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The Prelude to the War of the Bounty Hunters continues, and as is the way with preludes, nothing of great significance really happens. But that doesn’t mean this comic isn’t great, because it is.

Instead we get a lot of insight into the way Vader sees Luke. We see him wondering if the pain he caused him on Cloud City has made him stronger, and concluding that it hasn’t because Luke’s reliance on his friends makes him week. Thus Vader’s seeming obsession with Han Solo, because his friendship is weakening his son…so he can’t use his son to defeat Palpatine.

Indeed, Vader has now concluded that due to what he’s seen on Exegol, Palpatine cannot be defeated, and therefore Luke needs to die. Of course, we know that he ultimately comes to a different conclusion and is redeemed (spoilers for Return of the Jedi!).

The writing is, as ever, phenomenal, and the art is great. Darth Vader continues to be the evry best when it comes to Star wars comics.
