THE 'SITH' AT 10: A (DARK) STAR IS (RE)BORN!
Twenty-two years on from his last on-screen appearance, the fearsome Sith Lord who'd made such an indelible impression on the world's STAR WARS fans, and become a unique part of the science fiction/fantasy genre as one of its finest and truest faces of evil iconography: the chillingly emaciated, breathing suit wearing form of Darth Vader, would finally return, if all too briefly, during the closing scenes of EPISODE III, becoming one of that film's key worldwide selling points in linking the Prequel and Classic Trilogies together.
Now, in 2015, the ominous figure of death, carnage and power emerges anew as figurehead to an all-new and eagerly awaited mini-series, officially canon (well, until LUCASFILM changes their minds again!) from MARVEL COMICS, and set during the Classic Trilogy. The acclaimed first issue's out right now and will surely sell the kind of gold dust amounts that will impress DISNEY no end...
