Darth Vader #3

In order to serve his master and earn his new lightsaber, Darth Vader's journey leads him to the Mid Rim and the River Moon of Al'doleem in search of a former Jedi in exile. Not simply waiting to be cut down by the Sith, Master Kirak Infil'a puts obstacles in Vader's path making the journey to the top of his mountain a treacherous one.

We've normally seen Darth Vader as an unstoppable force of nature. Here, early in his resurrection from Anakin to Vader, the character is not yet the Sith Lord the galaxy will come to know and fear. Although apparently ready for death should it come, Master Kirak Infil'a is by no means eager to fall to Vader.

By the time the two clash the obstacles have done their work and softened up the Sith leading to a victory for the Jedi. The question now becomes is how long with it take for Vader to regroup and climb the mountain again? Worth a look.
