The collected trade paperback of Star Wars: Purge draws together the standalone and miniseries issues released by Dark Horse that follow skirmishes involving Darth Vader as he continues his obsessive purge of the Jedi, following the rise of the Empire across the universe. While Palpatine endures as Emperor, the focus of the Sith become in strengthening the New Order, but Vader soon learns that to purge the galaxy of the Jedi, he must purge his very being of all traces of what once was Anakin Skywalker.

The first chapter, the self-titled “Purge,” was the first comic to be distributed to depict Vader on his Jedi Purge mission. A group of surviving Jedi, having evaded Order 66, collectively meet in an abandoned mine on Kessel, to discuss their options having now faced the fall of their friends and the rise of the empowered Sith. But the gathering’s organizer has something more devious planned, having heard of Vader’s obsession for locating Obi-Wan Kenobi, she puts out word he is with them to meet… and Vader is coming to them.

It’s Darth Vader baby! Yeah! Fans of the classic AND prequel trilogy can rejoice because Star Wars: Purge – The Tyrant’s Fist #1 features what everyone loves-Darth Vader being an awesome bad-ass villain. What more could we want? Thank you Dark Horse!

Alexander Freed writes an…unusual Darth Vader. And I don’t mean that in a bad way. He writes a Darth Vader that, quite honestly, we’ve never seen before. We now know the WHOLE story of Anakin Skywalker (At least, until Episode 7 comes out) so Freed takes advantage of that and writes him with little hints of Anakin from the prequels thrown in. Now, he’s not crying out for his mom or yelling “NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!,” but you see subtle hints of the character that we watched evolve during Episodes 1-3.
