Return to Vader’s Castle #1

Prepare to be scared! Return to Vader’s Castle #1 is out today from IDW.

Here’s the official solicit:

Return to Vader’s Castle for a spooky spin on your favorite villains from a galaxy far, far away…

This exciting weekly series explores the hidden corners of the Star Wars Galaxy and features a wretched hive of scum and villainy including Darth Maul, Grand Moff Tarkin, Asajj Ventress, Jabba the Hutt—all under the shadow of Darth Vader!

Fans will be excited to discover these creepy stories by fan-favorite writer Cavan Scott, with art by the greatest talent from across the galaxy, including Nicoletta Baldari, Nick Brokenshire, Francesco Francavilla, Kelley Jones, Megan Levens, and Charles Paul Wilson III!


Ready to bring the thrills and chills, Cavan says:

Fear leads to the Dark Side and that’s exactly what we’re exploring as we Return to Vader’s Castle for the first of five weekly galactic nightmares leading up to Halloween.

We kick off with a visit to Lotho Minor where an ancient Sith terror lies beneath the surface of the junk world. Megan Levens is our first guest artist, tackling Darth Maul at his most insane. Plus, of course, we’re treated to Francesco Francavilla shining a sinister spotlight on our new scary storyteller, none other than Darth Vader’s very own creepy butler-slash-torturer, Vaneé.

This was the first story I pitched for this second run, so its only fitting that The Horned Devil kicks off our cavalcade of cosmic horror.

Keep reading for a sneak peek of the cover and the first few pages, released exclusively on StarWars.com last Wednesday. And make sure to stop by their website to take a look at the gallery of alternate covers.


Return to Vader’s Castle #1 is available in all good comic shops in North America.
