Darth Vader: Black, White & Red #3

The Star Wars anthology series centered around the adventures of Darth Vader in black and white with splashes of red continues. First up, it's the third chapter of the continuing story "Hard Shutdown" in which the still immobilized Vader continues to give his would-be captures fits using the Force to cause more damagae to the facility and thier ship and eventually break free. Now let's see what a fully operational Dark Lord of the Sith is capable of.

Speaking of Vader at the peak of his powers, "Annihilated" offers just that with the Dark Lord of Sith destroying and entire Rebel convoy and then the Rebel base it was headed to all by himself. It, like the third story, shows the power and viciousness Darth Vader is capable of. My favorite story of this issue is "Diplomatic Immunity" where Vader takes a single pilot back to her homeworld where he annihilates the town she grew up in and threatens her family in order to turn the Rebel spy against the Rebellion and work for him. This is easily the best issue of the series so far.
