Star Wars: Darth Vader #13 (Star Wars: Darth Vader by Greg Pak
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Greg Pak continues to do an excellent job of tying all three trilogies together while offering us some real deep cuts into the existing continuity and serving up bit of extreme fan service in Vader vs IG-88.
This was not a fight I thought I needed to see, but here we are, and it was epic. Vader’s continued search for Han Solo, because he believes he’ll lead him to Luke, winds up in a confrontation with the Droid Crush, who just so happen to be working with IG-88. Once again I find myself wondering about the time gap between that little scene with all the bounty hunters on the bridge of the Executor and this. But, as I said before, the time it would have taken the Falcon to fly from the Anoat system to Bespin probably accounts for that (and, don’t forget, Luke did ALL of his Jedi training with Yoda in the same time gap).
Anyway, as fun as this is, the real meat was saved to the end. Who would have thought anyone would have ever done anything with Sly Moore, eh? I can’t wait for the next issue…
