Darth Vader #36

This is a damn goofy story. After loosing control of his Force abilities, Vader enlisted the help of Dr. Aphra to find a magic shield which he hopes will somehow restore them. News of his condition has resulted in droids from the Dark Lord of the Sith's past forming a sort of unofficial union and plotting his demise. As others have learned before them, attempting to take on Darth Vader doesn't go well for them.

The majority of the issue involves the droids getting together and hatching their plan. Although not a bad plan, underestimating Darth Vader doesn't serve them well especially when he has a ringer on their team. The issue ends with Vader victorious and the droid army in ruins to be rebuilt for his own purposes. It's unclear his plans for the droids (especially after immediately demonstrating Vader doesn't need a droid army to stand up to his enemies), but I guess we'll see where this goes.
