Darth_Vader_25_Chiang_Variant

Kieron Gillen and Salvador Larroca's Darth Vader series has stretched the bounds of what was thought possible with a villain-centric comic, and perhaps most impressively of all, it managed to cohesively link the Vader of the prequels with the Vader of the original trilogy in a convincing and compelling fashion.

Over the past two years, the creators have taken Vader on a perilous journey into becoming his own man and learning to slowly defy the Emperor, and in December's Darth Vader #25 everything comes to its epic conclusion. Marvel has sent out an unlettered preview featuring Vader, Aphra, and of course Emperor Palpatine, to whet our appetites ahead of the finale.

We’ve been celebrating Mutant Week all week here at ComicsAlliance, and it’s fair to say that everyone has had a lot of fun. However, now it’s time to get serious and talk about the stuff that really matters, that being: What the heck is Xorn’s deal?!

If you’re unaware, Xorn was a character with a cool design and a cool hook, introduced by Grant Morrison and Leinil Francis Yu in New X-Men Annual way back in 2001. He had a star for a face, he was a healer, and he taught the remedial class at Xavier’s School For Gifted Youngsters. Then, Grant Morrison pulled the rug out from under us with a reveal so drastic that Marvel spent years trying to to undo it in a satisfying way.

Darth Vader — the most dangerous man in the galaxy — crashes on an alien planet and the entirety of the Rebel forces will stop at nothing to take him out.

ComicsAlliance chatted with 'Vader Down' writers Kieron Gillen and Jason Aaron about what makes Vader tick; the promise of sweet, sweet droid fights; and the mechanics of lining up the crossover the galaxy has been waiting for.
