Spoiler Alert! 
We had the opportunity to read the first issue in this new Star Wars series from Dark Horse Comics and it is definitely another winner for Star Wars fans. I love the fact that Dark Horse always brings in both or all sides of the Star Wars Galaxy in their series. Whether you are a fan of the Rebel Alliance or Imperials, Star Wars fans should be pleased. 
In this series, we will learn about a terrorist plot on Coruscant, which is targeting the new Emperor. The new graduates of the Imperial cadets will be in for a treat of stepping into battle immediately and learn to break that fear that they may have not expected whether they are ready or not. One of the fellow graduates, Laurita Tohm, happens to be the Raithal Valedictorian and is hailed with high respect, but not from all of his fellow class. He would be tricked into entering a prototype fighter and locked in the vehicle. Fortunately, he would be able to eject the vehicle in time to land in a war at hand. This is where he will meet Darth Vader who is in heavy battle. Tohm takes immediate command to want to assist his leader, Lord Vader. 

The first issue in Darth Vader and the Ghost Prison is terrific! The story is setting us up for a ride and we will have to cheer everyone's favority Sith on in battle, thanks to Haden Blackman. The art is truly stunning and provided by Agustin Allesio. 

As an added treat, the amazing Tsuneo Sanda will have a variant cover for Darth Vader and the Ghost Prison #1. He is one of my favorite artists that creates masterpieces everytime!
