Darth Vader #7

Crippled and left to fend for himself on Mustafar, Darth Vader begins putting himself back together again. However, the Emperor has left another surprise in the form of the Sith assassin Ochi who only gives the Dark Lord of the Sith enough time to connect new robotic limbs before beginning his attack.

Ochi's involvement offers a tie-in to Rise of Skywalker, although it also confirms that both the assassin and Vader will make it through their confrontation alive (since w know Ochi died on Pasaana and Vader on the Second Death Star).

True to his word, Vader relies on his strength, mechanical knowledge, and anger to keep him alive without tapping into the Force to quicken his recovery. Far from 100%, Vader survives the assassin's attacks and discovers something unexpected calling out to him that may offer some assistance as the comic takes a truly bizarre turn that has ties to scenes from Rise of Skywalker which failed to make it into the film (and I can guess why).
