Darth Vader #18
It is a time of chaos for the Empire After the destruction of the Death Star, Darth Vader is showing no mercy to any rebel sympathizers.
In an effort to regain allegiance from the ore-rich planet, Shu-Torun, Vader has assassinated the royal family and cast the throne to its youngest surviving daughter, the new Queen Trios. Despite the deadly warning, rebel acts continue, requiring further reprimand from the Empire.
Elsewhere, Vader’s secret ally, Dr. Aphra has fallen into the hands of rebels. Vader has issued a bounty for her recovery, dead or alive, prepared to bring an end to any who dare test him. Meanwhile, Shu-Torun has banded together to fight back against Vader’s attacks. Hope seems slim, until a new ally surfaces: Cylo.
