THE BUY PILE FOR AUGUST 22, 2018

Darth Vader #20 (Marvel Comics)

Jump from the Read Pile. An old saying claims that idle hands are the devil's workshop, and this issue showcases the high cost of success. Vader and his team of Inquisitors have essentially killed every visible Jedi in the galaxy ... leaving him bored. A bored Vader is a bloodthirsty Vader, so he turns his eyes internally and that leads to mayhem on Coruscant.

This issue is ruthless and fast moving and terrifying in all the ways that Darth Vader should be. This is great work from Charles Soule, Guiseppe Camuncoli, Daniele Orlandini, Dono Sanchez-Almara, Erick Arciniega and Travis Lanham. RATING: BUY.
