Darth Vader #14

Following the death of an Imperial Envoy on Mon Cala, Governor Tarkin's forces under the command of Darth Vader have invaded the planet and laid siege to above-ground cities. When diplomacy fails to halt the invading Imperial forces, the king decides to go to extreme measures and destroy every single surface city on the planet rather than allow them to be taken by the Empire and used as staging areas against the rest of the planet deep below the ocean's surface.

With the storyline taking place on Mon Cala, we're given a look at a younger Admiral Ackbar as part of the group responsible for the protection of the planet which should please fans of the character.

While Vader was sent as a show of force to get the planet under control, it's likely the Sith Lord (after he swims out the watery death the cliffhanger ends on) is going to be far more interested in the Jedi given shelter by the Mon Calamari including Jedi Master Barr who uses his influence over the king to prompt a Rebellion by the Mon Calamari. Worth a look.
