Following on from last year’s successful weekly miniseries Star Wars Adventures: Tales from Vader’s Castle, IDW Publishing has announced that it will be serving up more spooky stories from the galaxy far, far away this October with Star Wars Adventures: Return to Vader’s Castle, a five-issue miniseries from writer Cavan Scott (Star Wars Adventures).
“I am over the moon to be returning to Vader’s Castle for another helping of Halloween horror from a galaxy, far, far away. And what better way to celebrate the scariest time of the year than by focusing on the villains of the Star Wars saga?” says Scott. “The response to our last visit to Mustafar was phenomenal, and I hope fans will join us once again, embracing the dark side in the company of Sith, warlords, and crazed Imperial scientists.”
Each issue in the series will be written by Scott and focus on a different villain:
#1: Darth Maul, illustrated by Megan Levens: “Maul is the counterpoint and nemesis of my favorite character from the saga, Obi-Wan Kenobi, so getting to tell a part of his story (and draw those fabulous tattoos) was something I didn’t hesitate to sign up for!”
#2: Grand Moff Tarkin, illustrated by Kelley Jones: “Although I rooted against him, I always had a sneaking admiration for Tarkin, as he was – in all honesty – the real evil of the Empire: cold, calculating, and all too human!”
#3: Asajj Ventress, illustrated by Nick Brokenshire: “I can’t wait to show you the super-creepy shenanigans we’re getting up to in the Star Wars universe!”
#4: Jabba the Hutt, illustrated by Nicoletta Baldari: “These are the comics you’re looking for!”
#5: Darth Vader, illustrated by Charles Paul Wilson III: “I told IDW that I’d draw the Kessel Run in less than 14 parsecs if they could get me on this book again, and they told me I could do it… but only if it was in under 12.”
Star Wars Adventures: Return to Vader’s Castle will launch in October 2019.
