Review: Star Wars: Vader – Dark Visions #2

Star Wars: Vader - Dark Visions #2

To command an Imperial Destroyer is a coveted position. But with such great responsibility comes grave consequences if you fail your mission. How far will one officer go to spare himself from the judgment of Darth Vader?

Some of the most memorable scenes from Star Wars is that of Darth Vader choking individuals who fail him (or threatening to). The fear that it generates is a motivator for some and lets face it, there’s some wish fulfillment there for some of us. Star Wars: Vader – Dark Visions #2 explores that concept with a story of a commander who doesn’t want to fail Vader and knows if he does what that means.

Writer Dennis “Hopeless” Hallum delivers an entire issue to what an officer would do to avoid being choked out. The situation spirals in comedic ways to deliver a story that’s actually kind of funny due to the absurdity of it all. As commands are issued, the reader knows things aren’t going to work out, but how badly things goes is so over the top it’s hard to not laugh at times.

Brian Level‘s art, with color by Jordan Boyd and lettering by Joe Caramagna, is interesting and helps add to the levity of it all. The story could easily have taken on a much more serious, almost horror like quality easily. But, as presented, there’s a slapstick like quality about the art style that enhances the humor of it all. There’s also interesting use of panels and perspectives that makes the comic a bit more interesting visually.

The issue is an entertaining one that’s a quick read but had me laughing throughout. It’s a less serious take on Star Wars in a way poking fun at what is a serious matter. While not as good as the first issue, it’s still succeeds in delivering an aspect of how others view Vader, in this case fear of his wrath. For those that want a laugh or are Star Wars fans, this is well worth checking out.
