Review: Darth Vader vol. 4: End of Games

Star Wars: Darth Vader, Vol. 4: End of Games - Kieron Gillen, Salvador Larroca

Outstanding. This title is constantly surprising me. Considering that this was the last I picked up, and that my interest level hovered somewhere between five and zero, the fact that it's pulled out ahead as my favorite of the new Marvel SW titles is as shocking as it is pleasing! Presenting an Anakin who is within himself introspective and damaged, and effortlessly and emotionally bridging the gap between the original trilogy and the prequels. And this! This not only provided an extremely satisfying conclusion to this story arc, but included some of the best Star wars writing I've read. When Vader's life support gets shut off? Yeah, that was some strong stuff. Loved it!
