Although I’m a HUGE Star Wars fan, I never got into the many diverse reading options that exist in the extended universe. After a recommendation from a podcast, I picked up the series “Darth Vader: Dark Lord of the Sith” and was pleasantly surprised to find an amazing story. The series starts immediately after the events of the movie “Revenge of the Sith”–Anakin Skywalker has now become Darth Vader. But now what? What does one of the most fearsome villains in movie history do upon his creation? Turns out, numerous adventures abound. But in a twist, these graphic novels are not “adventure of the week” sort of fare. They also explore the nature of evil and the deeper meaning behind Vader’s fate. They also focus more on why Anakin chose to become Darth. For a Star Wars fan, these volumes can’t be beat.
