Believe it or not, Greg Pak’s “Darth Vader” series has been running at Marvel for three years now (that brief blip in 2020 as a result of the Diamond shutdown aside), diligently filling in the gap in the Sith Lord’s life between The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi, in almost the same amount of time as the real-life gap between movies. We are pleased to present an exclusive preview of this month’s issue, ‘The Tambor Gambit.’

THE TAMBOR GAMBIT! The Dark Lord finally comes face-to-face with Skakoan revolutionary Jul Tambor – and Sabé finally must pick sides! Is Jul just another selfish, revenge-driven monster? Or is he a freedom fighter who desperately cares about his people? Or both? And is Vader more interested in crushing Jul – or completing the co-option of the Handmaidens of Padmé Amidala?
Thanks to Marvel for the preview, and be sure to pick up the book – either safely in a store, or digitally – next week!
