Strange new Darth Vader comic series hitting in March from Marvel Comics

Replacing the recently cancelled run is Star Wars: Vader – Dark Visions. And this new mini-series sounds all kinds of strange. Vader as a… hero?

The Dark Lord returns

Is there a villain as celebrated in Star Wars as Darth Vader? No, probably not. There’s good reason for that of course, since Vader is pretty easily the coolest bad guy in the Galaxy Far, Far Away. No Star Wars villain has even come close to being as all-around awesome as Anakin Skywalker’s Sith persona.

Though now, it seems we’ll be getting an alternate look at the big guy, and seeing him in something of a new light. Replacing the planned-then-cancelled, seemingly more traditional book, will be Star Wars: Vader – Dark Visions. And this new mini-series is set to show a potentially very different side of Vader.

Even calling him an anti-hero is a stretch, but the new mini from Dennis Hopeless and a rotation art talent goes one step further. Vader as “someone’s greatest hope”? Huh?

Have a look at the official preview below

Who is Darth Vader? You’ve known him as a symbol of power, a villainous commander, and a Sith Warrior. But this March, get ready to see a side of Vader you’ve never seen before – and a side that the galaxy has never seen before!

Writer Dennis Hopeless (Cloak and Dagger, Jean Grey) invites you to experience all-new twisted adventures of the Dark Lord. With rising star artist Paolo Villanelli (Star Wars: Lando Double or Nothing, Star Wars: Rogue One Adaptation) taking on issue #1 and break-out artist Brian Level (Thanos Legacy, Amazing Spider-Man: Renew Your Vows) joining for issue #2, STAR WARS: VADER – DARK VISIONS takes readers to the darkest parts of the galaxy. Places where even the mysterious anti-hero known as Darth Vader can be someone’s greatest fear, and even…someone’s greatest hope!

The limited series begins this spring, in a story that will shed a new light on the many sides of the galaxy’s greatest villain.

Don’t miss STAR WARS: VADER – DARK VISIONS, in comic shops this March!
