SDCC 2015 – ‘Star Wars’ Comics to Have Crossover Event with ‘Vader Down’

Vader Down

We’ve all been reading the unbelievable good Darth Vader and Star Wars comics that Disney/Marvel rebooted to promote The Force Awakens because they’re awesome. Now Kieron Gillen’s Darth Vader and Jason Aaron’s Star Wars are going to collide in a major way. You know you’re excited.

Spoiler Alert: if you haven’t been reading Darth Vader, do not continue.

So Vader has been operating outside of the Emperor’s circle and definitely without his approval. Now he’s going to face off with more rebels than he can really handle, but he can’t exactly call for Imperial backup. Vader’s on the outside and now he has to handle things from there.

Aaron and Gillen describe Vader Down as their Avengers movie. “Let’s put in Marvel Cinematic Universe terms. [Laughs] We’ve been doing Iron Man, Captain America, and Thor and this is The Avengers. Everything that we’ve been doing goes on the screen at the same time and you get watch all of those characters interact for the first time. It’s a mammoth story,” says Jason Aaron. We’ll get to see C-3PO and R2-D2 come face to face with their evil counter parts, I can’t wait for that. This encounter is going to affect the story lines of both series in major ways.

Jason and Kieron will be working together on Vader Down which is a good thing for all of us. Vader Down will be a six-issue miniseries with art by Salvador Larroca & Mike Deodato.

Look for this series in November.

My name Scott McCauliffe and I'm a nerd. I love comics, games, movies, toys, you name it and I'm a fan. Except LARPing, sorry guys, I just don't get it. I'm a graphic designer by trade and I work at a nice local newspaper, laying out a few of the pages. I'm very happily married to my wife and we have a beautiful little boy and another little one on the way. I like to write in my spare time and I also create posters and t-shirts that I sell online. Back in 2010 I wrote my own comic book and attended the inaugural Denver Comic Con with it in artist alley. That was exciting. I'm also writing a little bit of science fiction right now. I'm also an avid gamer, both video and table top. I love playing Pathfinder (D&D 3.5) with my friends and family. Many monsters know the fear of Welby Goodbarrel, halfling alchemist. I have a pretty nice action figure collection going. It's mostly Star Wars and Marvel, with some Batman mixed in for good measure. I'm kind of an all over the place guy, never really focused in on one thing I like to be deep in it all. And I accept any trivia challenges!
