When Marvel Comics' "Darth Vader" series concludes with the release of Issue #25 in late-August, the series will go out with a bang. The final, oversized issue will feature variant covers by Adi Granov, Jamie McKelvie, Michael Cho and Joe Quesada, among other A-List names.
With the big finale in sight, Quesada recently debuted his cover via Tumblr, saying, "I've been having a blast on these 'Star Wars; covers. After nearly 20 years of working almost exclusively on Marvel characters it's a nice change of pace having the opportunity to draw characters from a different universe I love almost as much.
"This was designed as a sister piece to the Rey cover I did not too long ago," Quesada concludes, referring to the variant he provided for Marvel's "The Force Awakens" adaptation's first issue.
"Star Wars: Darth Vader" #25, by Kieron Gillen and Salvador Larocca, arrives August 31.
