Darth Vader: Black, White & Red #4

The Star Wars anthology following the adventures of Darth Vader in black, white, and red concludes in this final issue. The ongoing storyline, "Hard Shutdown," told across all four issues wraps up here with Vader breaking out of Sendvall's trap, wiping out his minions, and then taking his revenge on the man who temporarily successfully immobilized Dark Lord of the Sith but couldn't kill him.

Our other two storylines are "Hard Shutdown" and "Return to Hoth." In the first, Vader fights against a sentiment pathogen who infects him on Uokara. And the last story involves Vader being taken unaware by Wampas after returning to the rebel base following the events from The Empire Strikes Back. While the first two stories show Vader at his most powerful, the last shows him taken unaware but still with the fortitude to survive.
