THE LOST COMMAND takes place shortly after Anakin's transformation in Darth Vader, and the psychological damage Vader suffered in the aftermath of the death of his beloved Padme is fully on display. The tortured Dark Lord is sent on a mission to find a missing Imperial expedition (The "Lost Command" of the title....) headed up by Garoche Tarkin, the Son of Vader's rival, Moff Tarkin. The mission does not go as planned, and as things go south, Vader frantically plots and maneuvers, desperate to reach the outcome desired by his Master, Emperor Palpatine.
Writer Hayden Blackman and Artist Rick Leonardi deliver a Vader I've never seen before: Driven, desperate, tortured by his actions, but stuck in the position those actions have put him in. This is gripping stuff, and any Darth Vader fan will find a lot to enjoy in STAR WARS: DARTH VADER AND THE LOST COMMAND.
On a side note, Dark Horse continues to drive me nuts by not including a cover gallery in their collected editions. There is one cover from the original mini-series featured. That's just a disgrace, especially considering the price of this book. I was especially disappointed that they saw fit to leave the 25th anniversary variant of the first issue out. Please, PLEASE, start including a cover gallery, Dark Horse!
Dark Horse delivers when it comes to the art on this one and the single panel pages continue to take the readers breath away. There seems to be a trend with Dark Horse to use cold blues and stark whites for many of the background colors and then switch to warm earthy browns and tans for flashback sequences. I understand that colors played a big part of the first three Star Wars movies, but they might give it a bit of a rest in the comics.
There are a few frames that show just how messed up Vader is after his run in with hot molten lava and a light saber. Vader's shell of a body is truly symbolic of the shell of his physic. We see that while racked with physical pain, that pain is nothing compared to the mental torture he is feeling over the loss of the love of his life. But behind all of that pain is the mind that would make Machiavelli think twice. I enjoyed the way Vader used the mission the Emperor put him on, to appease his master, undermine his rival and up his stock as a right hand man. Not a small feat considering who he was up against.Read more ›
Don't get me wrong; this is a good story, but what makes this comic special is the characters created by George Lucas, namely Darth Vader and the Emperor. Still, while reading it, I could hear the Star Wars theme in my head. That sort of synergy between the comic and the original movies doesn't come easily. And yes, I was interested to see more of Vader. He's a cool character, and Darth Vader and the Lost Command remains faithful to that character. Recommended for fans of Star Wars. ***3/4
