    1. Kemper on said:

      I was hoping that this new line of comics set in the Star Wars universe would fulfill their official Marvel crossover quota simply by a set of interconnected tales set between the two first movies. Aren’t we crossing the streams enough already? But this is Marvel which means that much like the sun rising in the east tomorrow there had to be a story going through a couple of books at some point. So if you want to follow along with this one you have to read issues of the main Star Wars title as [...]

      While tracking Luke Skywalker, the mysterious Rebel pilot who destroyed the Death Star, Darth Vader encounters a fleet of X-Wings. After an intense dogfight, Vader crash-lands onto the desolate planet Vrogas Vas. It’s a prime opportunity for the Rebels as they swarm to the planet’s surface: Vader is down and he’s all alone - now’s their chance to kill the Empire’s most feared enforcer! But they’re about to learn that he’s not trapped in there with them, they’re trapped in here wi [...]

      Star Wars: Vader Down is a one book collection of Star Wars Vader Down, Star Wars (2015)#13-14 and Darth Vader #13-15.What can I say? THIS is what Star Wars is all about. Excitement, danger, adventure.'s all here! Wonderfully written by Jason Aaron and Kieron Gillen and gorgeously illustrated throughout. I had read parts of Vader Down in the Vader series, but this gave me a look into the WHOLE story. Let's start at the beginning.Darth Vader has learned that the pilot who blew up the Death Star i [...]

      Vote: 4,5The Vader/Star Wars crossover was just best volume of the new comics series from Marvel/Disney for me: Aaron and Gillen (who already cross-wrote a storyline on a Marvel mutants crossover early) just totally nailed the essence of Star Wars and the iconic characters of the saga, Deodato/Larroca's artworks are just over the top, opening battle of Vader's Tie Fighter against 3 (!!!) X-Wing Fighters squadrons was 100% epic, 0-0-0 and BT-1 (so deliciously evil versions of C-3PO and R2-D2) at [...]

      Finally picked this up from a pile of new Star Wars comics and liked it a lot! All the expected characters are in it, and it’s all action and dry humor all the time. The return of fun to comics! Vader is down, crash-landed on the planet Vrogas. Take him out! As if the Rebels could pull that off! I liked the confrontation between Artoo and evil Artoo. That good vs. evil parallel universe same characters thing happens here, yup. It’s filled with a lot of mostly fun moments like that, actually. [...]

      Maybe it's the taint of the cross-over 'event' but I didn't enjoy Vader Down quite as much as Marvel's previous Star Wars comics (just talking about the new ones here; not the ones from the '70s and '80s).It was OK; action packed and amusing in places, it certainly felt like Star Wars. It just felt a little disjointed to me in places. Perhaps it was the multiple writers. Perhaps it was the addition of Mike Deodato as an artist (I've never been a fan, I'm afraid).Whatever it was, it wasn't enough [...]

      Darth Vader V. the Rebel Alliance!I got this storyarc on its single comic book issues but I chose to make the review using this TPB edition to make a better overall review. The story is set after the events of “Star Wars IV: A New Hope” but before the events of “Star Wars V: The Empire Strikes Back”. This TPB edition features “Star Wars: Vader Down” #1, “Star Wars: Darth Vader” #13-15 and “Star Wars” #13-14, in its new Marvel Canonic run.Creative Team:Writers: Jason Aaron &am [...]

      4.5 starsLately Marvel is publishing some of the best Star Wars comics ever. Every volume so far has had something new and cool. In this one we get to see Darth Vader battling the odds against an entire Rebel Force. (Darth is scary, that's all I'll say about that.) Also, there's an evil Artoo and Threepio. The idea of Threepio being evil was just too cool, and there's never been an Artoo unit so well armed. Add in a wookie Bounty Hunter along with a cybernetic Mon Calamari wielding four light sa [...]

      Vader is searching for Luke in space and suddenly appears in a rebel training field. He takes on several squadrons. Luke crashes his ship into Vader's tie fighter, both ships seen crashing toward Vrogas Vas. Hence "Vader down." I'll leave it at that. You'll just have to read it. This was a blast! Literally. Some key points Vader is probably at his most ruthless and powerful, taking on thousands of enemies, and it's fascinating to watch. I feel like this book is also the most visceral of the Vade [...]

    10. Travis Duke on said:

      (4.5) Boatloads of action and classic star wars references to give you a really good time in this crossover. Aaron and Gillen continues to deliver the goods in terms writing and nostalgia. Seriously the action is awesome; Vader wiping out rebel scum in space and on the ground flaunting his ridiculous might. We get some droid on droid battles with Triple zero and Beetee vs R2 and C3p0, another awesome fight. Chewy vs Krrsantan in an epic wooky battle. Yes this is all one comic! The story isn't ve [...]

    11. Ashley on said:

      An amazing story and absolute phenomenal way of doing a crossover, because there was enough information provided to understand what was going on without having to have read the Luke Skywalker and Darth Vader comics separately (but I still highly recommend you read those if you haven't!). The story is predominantly character-driven by Darth Vader's desire to find Luke Skywalker, and Luke's desire to find an abandoned Jedi temple. All of the other characters get sucked into the orbit of Vader and [...]

      Here. We. GO.Vader Down. Oh Man oh man.You like Star Wars?You like Star Wars comics?Wanna see Luke being an irresponsible kid who's just doing good for the shake of being good without thinking the consequences but while being stupid he keeps being awesome too? Wanna see Darth Vader against a fucking army?That's yo shit.You should go read it right now.Awesome stuff from beginning till the end.Vader hunts Luke. Luke's with the Rebels. A fucking ARMADA of Rebels find Vader outside of a little plane [...]

    13. Bhanuj on said:

      Reading Vader Down was difficult for me, not because of the story or language, but it was difficult finding the titles in correct order. The series of events that happen in Vader Down are a continuation of the events from two parallel series; Star Wars (Skywalker series) and Darth Vader. So before you pick up Vader Down, read the first two volumes each of Star Wars: Skywalker Series and Darth Vader. The correct order of Vader Down volumes can be found at the back of Star Wars #12. The volume was [...]

    14. Tokio Myers on said:

      Probably my least favorite installment in the series so far. I felt like nothing really happens until the last few pages. Yes there is some cool fight scenes, but I expected more out of the Leia and Vader meeting.

    15. Dan on said:

      This was very good. But I don't like that this was the conclusion to a story that was started in the main Star Wars books. If you didn't know they were concluded in this volume then you are left out of the loop.

    16. Brandon St Mark on said:

      I didn't mind the portions of this that didn't focus on Force users so much, and I really like Triple 0 and BT.

    17. Sesana on said:

      Darth Vader is (still) the biggest badass in the galaxy. And it's so much damn fun to read.

    18. Jim C on said:

      Actual rating is 3.5 stars.This collection continues Vader's search for Luke Skywalker. Vader receives information about the location of Luke. Vader goes to this planet and finds out that it is actually a rebel base.The first three issues of this collection was amazing and pure fun. The second half not so much. I am a Darth Vader fan so my review might be a little biased. The first three issues deal directly with Vader and showcase his powers. I always felt that is the one thing wrong with the o [...]

    19. Arlenne Gilbert on said:

      Por ahora, el mejor arco de Darth Vader. Ha sido emocionante y muy entretenido. Puro estilo Star Wars.Para recordar: Vader vs todo un ejercito rebelde (tanto naves como en tierra), Luke empotrando su nave contra la de Vader, Leia y sus ovarios cuadrados, Han y su labia.Para olvidar: lo pesados que podrían ser los droides psicópatas.

    20. Lauren on said:

      Right after the destruction of the Death Star, Vader seeks out Luke, still young and not yet trained in as a Jedi. The action in Vader Down picks up right at this point on the planet Vrogas. I enjoyed the side characters and the action-packed story. This one was a lot of fun!

    21. Chase Tremaine on said:

      I'm still enjoying my journey of slowly getting into comics, but this crossover between the Darth Vader series and the general Star Wars series didn't interest me as much as the Darth Vader-specific series. This collection had a cheaper art style, balancing too many characters, and it had a greater amount of details that weren't well-explained, alongside some cheap endings to the "action" scenes.That sounds really negative, but it wasn't bad. I'd just rather get back to the Vader series, proper. [...]

    22. Octavi on said:

      Empieza muy bien y se va volviendo regulero. El dibujo y color en la parte de la serie de Star Wars es espectacular, la de Vader es meh.

    23. Mary Ralph on said:

      Disappointing and formulaic. Any interesting points like Dr. Aphra are cancelled out by the Evil Versions of Star Wars Characters You Know and Love.Vrogas Vas looks cool, though.

    24. Lance Shadow on said:

      The very first comic book I read in the new canon was the one shot that started Vader Down. I was at gamestop buying a christmas gift for my girlfriend and saw it on a rack and I decided to pick it up. It was pretty epic. Then, coincidentally, my girlfriend got me Star Wars, Vol. 1: Skywalker Strikes and Star Wars: Darth Vader, Vol. 1: Vader for that same christmas. I got caught up after getting a hold of Star Wars, Vol. 2: Showdown on the Smuggler's Moon and Star Wars: Darth Vader, Vol. 2: Shad [...]

    25. Matthew Quann on said:

      That's more like it! After a pretty good second volume of Star Wars and a mediocre instalment of Darth Vader, both titles collide in the first Star Wars crossover under Marvel's guidance. Darth Vader, in hot pursuit of Luke, is shot down on Vrogas Vas, a planet that serves as a rebel base. The story then bounces back and forth between the casts of both aforementioned books as they meet for the first time. The resulting crossover makes for a pretty entertaining read! Vader is given the opportunit [...]

      Looking for Luke around Vrogar Vas Vader accidentally finds himself in the middle of an X-Wings training session. After slaughtering a good portion of the rebels, he finally crashes down after Luke throws himself onto his Tie.Two goals now converge: Vader wants to find his son when the rebels want to eradicate the Dark Lord of the Sith.As we're in the movies time frame, the question is not if any of these goals will succeed but rather why they won't. Most of the main characters seem to have an e [...]

    27. Tom Ewing on said:

      Once past its opening set-up - establishing Darth Vader (in case it needed establishment) as a guy who can take on an army single-handed - Vader Down settles into a rather unusual and enjoyable mode for an adventure comic: farce. The crossover has all the genre's characteristics - outrageous coincidences and plot reversals, slapstick action, identity confusion, unity of location, and a sense of freewheeling chaos created by the near-mirror image casts of Marvel's two main Star Wars titles facing [...]

    28. Chad on said:

      Unlike the books which have been pretty terrible since the EU reboot, Marvel is killing it with the Star Wars Extended Universe. This is the first crossover between Marvel's ongoing Star Wars and Darth Vader titles. Darth Vader has finally learned where Luke Skywalker is and goes after him. He blunders into an x-Wind training exercise and there's a huge dogfight. Luke and Vader both crash. Vader is being hunted by the Rebels while Luke is being chased down by Dr. Aphra and her murder droids. The [...]

    29. Justin on said:

      Honestly, you read this book and suddenly you wonder why the Empire even has an army? Just drop Darth Vader onto any planet and everyone on it will die. I kind of preferred the regular issues of Darth Vader where he’s trying to prove himself against the Emperor’s cadre of fake force users and creepy cyborgs. The Emperor, btw, is a dick. In case there was any doubtBut after reading this I’m all “Death star? At-ats? Why bother? “ General Veers should be sitting in his quarters polishing [...]

    30. Pete on said:

      This run has exceeded my expectations by light years. Anyone who is remotely a fan of Star Wars should pick this up. Evil droids, Vader hunting Luke, Han being Han. Top notch fun.
