Vader Down #1 Unites Star Wars & Darth Vader for Epic Crossover!
Two of the biggest comics in the world collide as Star Wars and Darth Vader cross over for the first time! Marvel has released details about Vader Down – a blockbuster six-part crossover beginning this November! Writers Jason Aaron and Kieron Gillen join forces with blockbuster artists Mike Deodato and Salvador Larroca combine both ongoing Star Wars titles for a crossover in the mighty Marvel manner!
Vader Down is a classic Marvel style crossover. The event kicks off in the Vader Down one-shot, and then bounces between Darth Vader and Star Wars, telling a story that is essential to the plotlines of both books, that takes the casts from each and smashes them together in one epic tale!
Vader’s TIE Fighter has been shot down. Seeing this as their one, best chance to take Vader down once and for all, the Rebellion is ready to throw everything they have at him. Alone, outnumbered, and outgunned, Darth Vader now must face down the entire might of the Rebel Fleet. But the Rebels are about to learn the true unrestrained power of the Dark Side of the Force. With the Rebellion putting it all on the line, could this risky gambit cripple their forces in the fight against the Empire?
In an interview with Marvel.com, Jason Aaron said:
They’ve got Vader in quite a predicament. He’s grossly outnumbered and his ship has crashed on this alien landscape. Whether everybody believes they can do it or not, they know this is their best shot to capture him or kill him or whatever. When you get that shot, you’ve got to take it and send everyone you’ve got down after him.
To defeat their greatest enemy, the Rebel Alliance will risk it all.
