Love this graphic novel The beginning takes place immediately after the Battle of Yavin. Vader reached a remote planet with an imperial base. But he had to crash land some distance from the base. He was alone in the wild. As cut off from technology as a cyborg can ever be. All he had to survive was his suit, his blade, and the force. The following stories have Vader seeking the identity of the Rebel Pilot who'd destroyed the Death Star. Then becoming obsessed from the moment he learned the pilot had been named Skywalker. What follows has many adventures with Luke, Leia, and Han. Has all 3 growing in strength and experience, and growing closer each step of the way. Also has vivid examples of how Imperial soldiers, Officials, civilians, and rebels reacted to the destruction of the Death Star. Wide variety of reactions from all of them. Finally this shows the intricacies of the Sith Master and Apprentice relationship. Between The Emperor and Vader was a complex series of deceit, treachery, concealment, manipulation, power struggles and hatred. Sidious praised and admired Vader's for it, while simultaneously condemning him for it.
