The Third Eye Guide to VADER DOWN

The Third Eye Guide to Star Wars: VADER DOWN

The first ever STAR WARS crossover event, blazing a trail through Marvel’s STAR WARS and DARTH VADER comics this winter!

OK, Third Eye Faithful, for the last year or so, we’ve been preaching, we’ve been ranting, and we’ve been raving about how freakin’ awesome Marvel’s take on the STAR WARS UNIVERSE is, and now, well, now we’re not gonna let you resist anymore: you’re gonna start reading some STAR WARS comics, trust us.

And, VADER DOWN is the PERFECT place to start.

Never mind the fact that all the awesome STAR WARS stuff Marvel doing is in CANON with the STAR WARS cinematic universe, and the upcoming FORCE AWAKENS film, never mind the fact that every single STAR WARS release has been top notch quality all the way through, folks, all of these things pale in comparison to one simple fact: DARTH VADER vs. EVERYONE is the coolest story ever.

A Great Place to Start Reading Marvel’s STAR WARS Comics

While we have a couple of ways for you to go back and start from the beginning of each series (with all the back issues for STAR WARS, DARTH VADER, and the other series in stock and available now, along with the graphic novels that collect the first arcs into one volume) — we know that some of you just want to dive into the action, and hey: that’s where November 18th’s STAR WARS: VADER DOWN #1 one-shot comes into play.

This crucial one-shot delivers the 1st chapter in the 6 part VADER DOWN crossover, and is the PERFECT place to get on board.

IN STAR WARS: VADER DOWN, when Vader accidentally finds himself facing off against the Rebel Fleet on his own, the rebels will learn the true strength of the Dark Side of the Force!

Once Vader crashes on a nearby planet, the Rebellion is willing to risk everything for this once-in-a-lifetime chance to take out their biggest enemy: Lord Vader himself!

And, in the midst of all this post-A NEW HOPE, pre-EMPIRE STRIKES BACK storyline, we’re given tons of awesome stuff featuring Luke, Vader, Leia, Aphra, Han, Chewie, and more.
