    According to a report from IGN, Marvel Comics will release a new ongoing Darth Vader comic this June. The comic will begin at the end of The Revenge of the Sith. Written by Charles Soule, who is already working on Poe Dameron comic, with the art Giuseppe Camuncoli, comic is described by Soule as “Darth Vader: Year One'.







    In the the telephone interview, Soule said that the comic will cover 'some really, really cool early moments of his early mythology and history', including the construction of Vader's red lightsaber.



    Soule also discussed the difference between his and the previous Darth Vader comic, written by Kieron Gillen, which ended after 25 issues.

    In addition to the main character, we will naturally see Emperor Palpatine, but also the Inquisitors that appeared for the first time on Star Wars: Rebels. One of the most exciting things is the way Soule approaches the character of Vader with his collaborator, Giuseppe Camuncoli.



    If his cameo in Rogue One wasn't enough for you, it seems that Marvel has you covered. We will likely hear more about the comic during Star Wars Celebration Orlando.



    For the entire article and interview, head to IGN.

    This is awesome!!! I recall the Cantina Chatter episode when they were talking about the Darth Vader comic series coming to an end and what were they're expectations regarding future comics, and I recall I think @Kyle mentioned it would be awesome if they made one of Vader during the Empire after ROTS. I hope that they show how the Inquisitors came into his service to hunt the remaining Jedi after Order 66.

    As a big fan of the first vader comic this is going on my list of comic to buy.

    The inquisitors turning up just adds to the lore the are building up around the early days of the empire.

    I'm really excited about this new comic.....can't wait to learn more about the Inquisitors and kyber crystal lore- I really hope they also explore the history of the yellow lightsaber pikes carried by the jedi temple guards, since the chief inquisitor held this position for some time.

    Awesome news. I know they had to be limited doing just between ANH and ESB, but I loved that series. This should be epic.

    This so much. I said in our podcast that Vader hunting surviving Jedi is the only thing I really want now from Vader and pretty much the only thing that does not scream 'they are really milking it'. Though, Darth Vader: Year One is a great description to make me super excited - Anakin's turn was always super weird for me, it is not a switch you turn on and off - and it will be interesting to see how he deals with everything, especially the suit.

    Yes! I recall you mentioned that too in that podcast, and I agree it would be something we have seen glimpses from LOTS and Rebels but it is just Darth Vader appearing as a full-fledged Lord of the Sith - though in the novel there are some parts where he stills shows some brief memories of his past, of the Jedi Order, his old master/friend, his late wife and his padawan.

    I hope this can spawn a comic series about the Grand Inquisitor, starting as a Temple guard and show his indoctrination into the dark side and then show some of his early missions.

    Okay, part of me is like "Oh my god we're already getting a vol 2?" The other part of me is like, "Hey I'll eat up anything by Soule."
