  Darth Vader: Dark Lord of the Sith: Volume 1
Explore Darth Vader’s early history! Picking up directly where Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith ends, follow Vader as he receives his legendary red lightsaber and witness Vader’s rise to power as a Dark Lord of the Sith! When Anakin Skywalker fell, both to the pull of the dark side and the blade of Obi-Wan Kenobi, he rose back up, more machine than man. Having lost everything that was once dear to him, he now takes his first steps into a darker world…beginning by hunting down and eradicating the galaxy’s remaining Jedi! But Jocasta Nu, librarian of the Jedi Temple, is making a desperate effort to gather and preserve whatever she can of the religion’s legacy. Palpatine views her as a particular threat to the Empire – does her knowledge make her a one-woman Jedi Order?
Collects Issues: 1 to 12 & No Good Deed…
