Preview Pages of New Vader Comic Released

Coming next month is Darth Vader #1 (again!) from Marvel. But don’t worry, it looks like there is plenty of PT-era feels to go around:

    i don’t remember vader grabbing palpatine with the force in the film maybe it happened off screen but you would think marvel would be faithful to the original scene in the film looks good though

    There is a action figure variant cover with Hayden on it, but I’m not as interested in Marvel’s take on Star Wars as I use to be. I enjoyed the Anakin & Obi-Wan comic, as well as the Kanan graphic novel. But with both of those comics, Marvel was delving into new territory either through exploring the history of a new character or examining area of a character’s backstory that Dark Horse had not touched upon.

    With the Darth Vader and Star Wars comic series, I keep comparing them to the Dark Horse comics and the conclusion is always the same: Dark Horse did it better. Dark Horse could examine and expand George’s characters and still be respectful of his vision.

    With Marvel, the stories feel more like fan service or a thinly veiled attempt to justify the poor decisions made in TFA regarding the Big Three. The latter mainly applies to the main Star Wars comic series. The preview scene from the new Vader series appears to be re-writing a scene from ROTS, which would fall into the category of fan service. Specifically, PT hater fan service: they thought this scene was corny, so let’s rewrite it.

    I do like the PT references in the comics. However, I would prefer Kennedy & Co. to actually be respectful of the PT and its fans through press junkets and merchandising campaigns rather than just the occasional scenes or story line in the comics.

      vader only said no once in the movie and didn’t try to kill palpatine this disrespectful to lucas and the fans and those haters can go f**k themselves

        Nah, I wouldn’t say that. A little artistic license in a comic is okay.

    I will headcannon this as such: The first four “no’s” are him thinking. The final “no” comes after the “no” in the film. He screams it first, then offscreen says it angrier, and then this scene ensues. Still hope to enjoy the comic, though.

    There was an article about this on MovieWeb and it was typical in its wording, citing the original scene as an ’embarrassment’ and the second most hated thing about the prequels (I’m sure you can guess what they cited as number one) and how this comic improves it. However, I was pleasantly surprised to see a number of angry face emoticons on the Facebook link and many comments stating they didn’t hate the scene, didn’t realise the scene was hated at all, how would you feel if you had lost your wife and had all of your limbs severed off etc. so not all bad.

    and now screen rant has done a piece on the comic resorting once again to prequel bashing saying the scene in the film was cringe worthy and the usual crap these people need to f**k off i don’t know why i still go to that site sorry for the rant
