    1. Taking place not too long after the destruction of the Death Star, this comic book series follows the point of view of Darth Vader as he struggles with falling out of the good grace of Emperor Palpatine due to his failure, and his search for the mysterious Force-strong teenager who became the hero of the rebellion.It's such an awesome idea to tell a Star Wars story from the Empire's side of things (the new Star Wars Battlefront II video game does something similar), and I loved seeing Vader set [...]


    2. To check out my reviews: dancinginth3dark.wordpressThis is my first omnibus I have ever read and own in my life and it is hard to conceptualized two volumes worth of plot and dialogue to be contain in a single review so I will try my best to provide enough details to satisfy those who are curious about the Star Wars comics and the expanded universe. I am grateful that the day that I wanted to start on the Expanded Universe, Disney announced that everything that has been published up to now will [...]


    3. A fun, dark read. I love seeing more of Vader, and it's great to see him outsmart and outwit those who oppose him. The reveal that the Emperor has been planning replacements for his apprentice was a bit shocking, but I loved that Vader managed to prove himself better than his competitors. Also totally love the introduction of Dr. Aphra. She's a lot of fun, and I love how she interacts with Vader. Her missions for Vader are personal, and the trip to Naboo to find out about his son is actually rat [...]


    4. Actual rating: 4.5 stars.This was a really fun book, but I wish it had focused more on Vader (there were some scenes that focused on Dr. Aphra, which is fine because she's an interesting character, but as I've said before I mainly only care about star wars because of the Force and Jedi/Sith/Force-users). Hopefully Vader Down/the next hardback volume will follow him more closely (to be clear, I want Vader (or at the very least a Force user) on every page).


    5. For the hardcore Star Wars fan that wants to know what Darth Vader was up to after the Death Star was destroyed, this volume collects 12 issues of the comic into a lovely graphic novel.While I liked the beautiful artwork, Vader's machinations in trying to locate Luke Skywalker just didn't interest me that much. Going against the wishes of the Empire, he enlists the aid of a mercenary thief and a couple of killer droids, all while deftly deceiving the Imperial watchdogs that are sent along to ove [...]


    6. Pretty fun. It’s got to be hard to write a series where the main character needs to be a man of few words. It pulls it off though. Love the droids and Doctor Aphara too.


    7. I've not read a comic in a long time, and A Star Wars comic in even longer but I quite enjoyed this. Probably a more detailed review once I finish the second hardcover.


    8. Star Wars the Expanded Universe (EU) is dead. Long live the new expanded universe this book captures the proper feel of what I've come to expect of the Star Wars universe. Characterization seems to be on point and both story and art were interesting and fun. Well done and I will be picking up the second volume. Gillen's best work so far (IMHO) is his kid Loki run in Journey to Mystery. Still hoping that get a hardcover collection.


    9. Let me preface this by saying I am a huge Star Wars fan. I definitely don’t mean to brag, but when it comes to Star Wars I know more than anyone else I’ve ever known. I’ve read comics, novels, I’ve spent too many hours on the Star Wars site, just reading articles about characters, creatures, history, planets, events. I am a huge Star Wars fan. I’ve mentioned this in other posts, but growing up there were three franchises that I obsessed over. The Lord of the Rings, Star Trek, and Star [...]


    10. Darth Vader Omnibus Vol. 1 is a great way of exploring those missing times between the Star Wars movies and answers some of the those nagging plot points such as why Vader is so sanguine about Luke's existence especial when you consider that his child was supposed no to have been born! :D At the same time is set up a number of new plot points and adds elements to the ongoing battle between Master and Apprentice! :D This really ramps up every scene throughout the book as Vader is busily playing h [...]


    11. Yo soy fanático de Star Wars, asi que los comics me llaman la atención pero me da cosan muchas cosas con las que pueden jugar pero también no se puede hacer mucho, además de que pueden dañar cosas yte no es el caso.Kieron Gillen sabe de esa cosa que necesitan las historias, y nos plantea un comic muy bien armado, dándole a Vader un aura de poder, de maldad y desesperación, además de agruparlo de un grupo de secundarios muy potentes, en el que destaca la Doctora Aprha y sus droides, que s [...]


    12. Star Wars fanboy checking in, so the five-star rating should not be a surprise. Nonetheless, this omnibus does deserve it. The art is pleasing to look at (although the Emperor looks more pruney at times, but that's just me), the story (Vader loses his standing with the Emperor after the events of A New Hope and has to climb back up) is intriguing and the new characters especially Doctor Aphra, BT-1 and Triple Zero have become fan favouriteswhich is not an easy task to accomplish in this day of f [...]


    13. Holy sith! I picked this up on a lark, not expecting much more than just a popcorn comic between novels. Deceptively deep, this comic—set between the events of Star Wars and Empire Strikes Back—explores Darth Vader's difficult climb back to power after landing on the Emperor's shit list because of the Death Star's destruction. It somehow makes Vader terrifying and sympathetic all at once. It puts Anakin's tale as told in the prequel films to shame (which, honestly, isn't hard to dobut still, [...]


    14. For my boys They might really enjoy this book! The illustrations were awesome and the short dialogue bubbles would be a great entry point for my boys who don't like to read. The pictures really supported the text to help with a deeper understanding of the storyline.


    15. I really expected to like this after reading to Aaron's Star wars omnibus but sadly the story was kind boring. Surely it had its moments but i wanted more badass moments from my all time favorite villain, Darth Vader.


    16. You know I wasn't ready to like this, but it had some really interesting turns in the story. Definitely intrigued to see where the story goes.




    17. A comic I enjoyed so much I actually bought the hardcover special editions.It is nice to have my love of Star Wars back, after many decades in the doldrums.



    18. If you're ever curious as to why Vader is considered the greatest villain of all time, read these two volumes. As someone who is a filthy casual Star Wars fan and possesses a pitiful knowledge of comic books, I can still say that this story is without a doubt one of the best Star Wars things in existence.


    19. One of the most visually stunning versions of Darth Vader I have ever seen. This particular book can be judged by its cover, and if you do that, you won't be disappointed. Interior art is fantastic and reminded me of the work of classic Star Wars comic book artist Al Williamson. The story is tight, and well-crafted, it would make a wonderful addition to the current version of movies that will be happening between episodes seven eight and nine. Highly recommend it!!!


    20. I remember reading somewhere the difference between various interpretations of Vader, and comics!Vader was presented roughly as "mostly silent but with great lines, usually during battles". And of course it turned out to be 100% true, and I loved it.Kieron Gillen seems to be pretty consistent in his greatness. Even though this is not exactly what I'm used to reading from him, he did a brilliant job both with the plot and the characters, their motivation, the way they're written. (sort of spoiler [...]


    21. I'm not sure if what I am going to say about this comic will really do it justice, but here goes.It's only been recently that I've delved deeper into the Star Wars universe than watching the movies and the TV shows. The more I read, the harder I fall. I really appreciate what they are doing with all of the various comic series, and this one might be my favorite so far. They are nailing the character, creating new characters that entertain and blend in nicely, and using consistently great artwork [...]


    22. A very entertaining book indeed. A look into what's going on between A New Hope and an Empire Strikes Back, all from the view of Darth Vader. He is just as menacing in this comic as in the movies. It was interesting him going through this, and bringing up a lot more connections between the prequels and the original films. Can't wait to read the next one!


    23. This was a pretty fun book. I think I'll continue with this series and maybe get into sine of the other Marvel Star Wars series.




    24. Ok, so this one was cool. A twist that actually made sense, brought new ideas to the story, and was a fun read. This is how it's done.
