I wrote about issue 1 last month and gave it a lot of praise for the unique story and amazing art work and I give the same praise for issue #2.
This is becoming one of my favorite books to read and goes right on top of the pile each Wednesday along with anything Batman.
We continue Darth's journey to find his light saber. He has gotten his vessel back from the pirates and is now enroute to a Jedi out post where storm troopers are gathering anything to do with Jedi and destroying it.
As he approaches an empire squadron of fighters asks Vader to ID himself or he will be shot down. He igones this request as well as the next two requests because he wants to fight and kill. He wants to test power and his abilities.
His mission is to find a Jedi and fight him for his saber so that he can corrupt it for himself. But he isn't here to find a Jedi, he knows that there will not be one there. He is there to use the computer to locate a Jedi that has taken to the Barash. Barash is like a penance for Jedi. They vow to not engage in Jedi activity. These Jedi were most likely in hiding before order 66 that attempted to kill all the Jedi in the galaxy.
He located the whereabouts of a Jedi named Kirak Infil'a and he is off to find him!
