Today I recommend: Star Wars: Darth Vader Vol. 1: Vader by Kieron Gillen.

Follow Vader straight from the ending of A NEW HOPE (and the pages of the new STAR WARS comic book) into his own solo adventures – showing the Empire’s war with the Rebel Alliance from the other side! But when a Dark Lord needs help, who can he turn to? As Vader pursues a very personal vengeance against the Rebels and investigates the Emperor’s secret machinations, he clashes with weapons scavenger Aphra and deadly Battle Droids, and returns to Geonosis to build an army. But some very powerful people don’t want him to learn the truths he seeks!

So I borrowed this volume of comics from Hoopla (use your library card to access this e-book database) based on a strong recommendation from a friend and I wasn’t disappointed. This is perfect for anyone who wondered what Darth Vader was up to during the original trilogy of movies, and is full of action and a huge dose of humor in the form of two murderous droids full of sassy quips. If you like this then you can binge read all the way through volume 15 by borrowing the comics from Hoopla!
