While it's great to see cameos, the character of Doctor Aphra and her murderous droids quickly became favorites. The parallels to C-3PO and R2-D2 are a bit too close perhaps and I think there was room for a bit more originality, they were still enjoyable to follow
Volume 4 opens after the end of the Shu-Torun War featured in Volume 3. Vader is back in the Emperor’s good graces, and Cylo has been branded a traitor to the Empire. Vader splits his efforts between tracking down Cylo and Dr, Aphra, delegating the latter to the assassin droids Triple-Zero and Beetee.
It’s all very cool and literally every panel is gorgeous. It, I think, does the best it can in a limited run wedged between movies decades old. The fatal flaw is that nothing that happens and no new character, alien, or planet featured can be all that important—otherwise why don’t they show up in The Empire Strikes Back, Return of the Jedi, or The Force Awakens? Darth Vader is a complete bada** throughout, but his approach to things is already pretty predictable by Volume 4. Triple-Zero and Beetee are mildly amusing, if derivative and really predictable. What the Vader do accomplish, on the other hand, is to show how Vader avoided falling out of—or, more accurately, regained—favor after the Death Star disaster, his relationship at that time with the Emperor, and how he reacted to learning of Luke.
One STRONG recommendation. Listen to the Imperial March in some headphones as you read it. It take it up a notch. Your welcome. 😉
The Darth Vader series is a perfect example of the way Disney and Lucasfilm are handling new canon. Both the writing and illustration in this collection are fantastic! As a Star Wars fan since it all began in 1977, I love how this comic series has added to the overall lore.

The physical product itself is very satisfying, as is the ending of the wider story arc.
Buy and read this Vader series instead so you can see Vader as he should be.
Ruthless, terrifying and mixing it up with the galaxy's scum and villainy.
