Review: Star Wars: Vader – Dark Visions #3 (of 5)

Star Wars: Vader - Dark Visions #3

Darth Vader, a name that strikes fear in the hearts of countless across the galaxy…but there is one lonely heart that beats just for him. What is it like to be in love with Lord Vader? And what fate will befall one who is infatuated with the tall, dark mystery behind the mask?

Tragedy. Is there any other expectation to come of this story? Writer Dennis “Hopeless” Hallum has been exploring Darth Vader through the eyes of others in a galaxy far far away. The first issue delivered us a tale of hope and heroics. The second horror. The third is a love story that can only end in one way.

Star Wars: Vader – Dark Visions #3 is a story that while expected is still very entertaining focusing on a medical assistant whose role brings her in to the orbit of Darth Vader. And that proximity brings obsessions and the belief of love. While there’s an aspect to the story about spiraling obsession there’s also a a tragedy as we see Vader’s reaction to someone who thinks they love him. There’s a monster destroying its maker aspect to it all giving the story a Frankenstein like spin to it.

The art by David Lopez and Javi Pina with coloring from Munsta Vincente and letterer Joe Caramagna is interesting as it’s able to balance a horror like sensibility about it but also in a stylized way. Vader himself looks off at times with an inconsistent design but overall it’s a look that feels fresh and unique and helps with the anthology aspect of the series.

The issue is predictable in some ways and not in others delivering another issue to get you to think about Lord Vader and how those in the galaxy view him. It’s a series that with each issue shows that he’s more than has been presented and no matter how you view him, he’s an interesting part of the Star Wars myhology.
