Star Wars: Darth Vader and the Lost Command (Hardcover Collection) – Review
This book is all issues from the Lost Command Series in one massive 128 page Hardcover book. I have one thing to say about this collection, I want it badly! Editors Note: A .pdf from Dark Horse was provided to us for review purposes
I haven’t read the Lost Command Series, so everything was new to me. This series is roughly 19 years before the Battle of Yavin.
Everyone knows the story of Anakin Skywalker turning into Darth Vader. If you don’t go watch the movies! (The original ones please)
Still haunted by the death of Anakin Skywalker’s beloved Padmé in Revenge of the Sith, Darth Vader is tasked with a mission to locate a lost Imperial expeditionary force–led by the son of Vader’s rising nemesis, Moff Tarkin. But the perils of Vader’s journey into the unexplored Ghost Nebula are compounded by traitors among his crew and the presence of the system’s religious leader, Lady Saro.
The story is strong, kept me interested till the last page shame it had to end though. It left you wanting to know more and more and Vader’s future or past whichever way you look at it. I can see why Dark Horse wanted to release the collection, truly it is a master piece. Haden Blackman the writer, he did an amazing job. As a huge star wars fan I felt this story was true to what I always believed Vader was/is. This is no less a true story in my opinion to Darth Vader. The artist did a great job there are certain pages that will make your jaw hit the ground they are so detailed in every way you feel like it is happening right in front of you.
All up The Lost Command Series is I believe one of the strongest Darth Vader stories I have read. I feel now I know a little bit more about Vader, the all powerful one. He says it himself “I am Darth Vader, I am a dark lord of the sith, I am death” just shows that he is becoming this all power sith lord, but he still and always will be haunted by Padmé.
Go out and buy it, I have read it about 4 times, yes it helps I can’t walk but hey it’s one of the best stories out there.
Read it and enjoy it.
