Star Wars – Darth Vader – The Burning Seas | Comics

Even after Galactic Empire is established, rebellion is still formed and Sidious sends Lord Vader to restore order.

From his final moments of encounter with his former master Obi-Wan Kenobi as Anakin Skywalker on the surface of fiery planet Mustafar, Darth Vader was reliving the whole event from an all-new point during his meditation.

The Emperor interrupts by calling him over the comms to his throne room to discuss his plans of establishing the supremacy of the Empire among the galaxy. Vader is asked to visit Mon Cala to thoroughly investigate and teach them a lesson for disobedience if necessary.

Darth Sidious believes that there might still be a surviving Jedi who is advising the King of negotiation tactics and wants his apprentice to check on it while he hands over the military operation aspects to Grand Moff, Wilhuff Tarkin.

As he was discussing possible strategies if they had to engage, Imperial ambassador Telvar was unsuccessfully trying to negotiate a trade deal with King Lee-Char of Mon Cala. When he was leaving, Vader arrived shortly in a Zeta-class shuttle along with his Inquisitors and death troopers.

Upon being questioned by Admiral Ackbar for their reasons to be here, Vader states to be looking for an enemy of the Empire but Ackbar simply denies any possibility of that only to witness Telvar's shuttle explode. This prompted the invading force and the Dark Lord of Sith to siege Dac City, where Lee-Char is apprehended for interrogation.

Just as their defenses were failing against the Imperial force, two whale-like creatures arose from the bottom of the ocean, creating massive tidal waves that wreck the city.

The Tenth Brother and Ninth Sister of Inquisitors immediately try to shield the wave before Vader joined them but despite their efforts, they all were drowned. Below, he discovers himself under heavy external pressure of water but creates an air bubble around him with Force.

Soon, he is attacked by a squid-like creature that he killed and reached an Imperial submarine. Though the Ninth Sister was able to learn of the whereabouts of the Jedi from Lee-Char, Lord Vader is disappointed at them for failing to kill him.

Meanwhile, the hidden Jedi, Ferren Barr is fascinated about how the Sith has taken control over the galaxy and also reveal his knowledge of Darth Vader actually being former Jedi Knight Anakin Skywalker to his loyal bad of acolytes.

Learning of Vader coming to hunt them down, Barr assembles his followers for a quick evacuation but unfortunately crosses paths with the enemy. Tarkin requests assistance from the Sith Lord in capturing King Lee-Char and it would finally led him to a confrontation with Jedi Barr.

This is third time in a row that the titular Dark Lord of Sith goes against a lesser known Jedi that possess a threat to the Empire. References to "Clone Wars" and "Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith" were mentioned during the story.

A subtle but very important nod to Jedi Purge is also played out brilliantly that brought a new and unexpected twist to story development. The bonus one-part story that comes after the actual conflict between Grand Moff Tarkin and Vader himself in a quest to hunt the latter down.
