Darth Vader #15 cover art "Vader Down"

StarWars.com has released the above cover art for Darth Vader #15, the grand finale of Marvel’s upcoming crossover event “Vader Down” which will see “the Dark Lord that everyone fears is in a shocking situation — stranded and facing defeat.”

With the Rebel army closing in on his position, Vader finds himself in a similar predicament faced by Luke Skywalker in The Empire Strikes Back. But while Luke relied on his friends to come to his aid, Vader’s only chance of survival is to do things the Sith way. He’s on his own, he’s cornered, and he’s desperate. That makes the chances bleak…for the Rebels.

The cover art above is illustrated by Mark Brooks.

Empire Magazine talked to Benicio del Toro about his upcoming role in Star Wars Episode VIII (due out May 26th, 2017), and the actor praised the series (revealing he “grew up with lobby cards of ‘Star Wars’ glued to my wall”)and was asked what he thought about director Rian Johnson. Here is what he said:

“I think like a cool scifi realism, if I may say that, if that makes any sense. You know, I love his film ‘Looper,’ and his other work. I just like talking to him about the film. I think he’s one of those new talented people that ‘Star Wars’ is hiring to infuse the franchise with new steroids.”

Of course, del Toro didn’t reveal any more information. Watch the whole interview embedded above.


And one of our favorite artists Paul Shipper has revealed some of the Star Wars: the Force Awakens character prints he will be releasing at New York Comic Con this week. See more below:
