Marvel reveal Hopeless Darth Vader mini “Dark Visions”

Dark Visions, a new five-issue take on the Artist Formerly Known as Anakin Skywalker, is coming this spring. Examining “a side of Vader you’ve never seen before,” it looks to be completely and utterly [written by Dennis] Hopeless.

Perhaps there’s nothing more juvenile than having fun at the expense of another man’s name, but there isn’t much else to go on in the press release—there’s a big promise, but no indication of how they’re going to take us there. Also, since when is Vader considered an anti-hero?  At least he’s perched atop some dark, evil steed in one of the covers. Anyway, here’s the release (pictures below):

New York, NY—December 5, 2018—Who is Darth Vader? You’ve known him as a symbol of power, a villainous commander, and a Sith Warrior. But this March, get ready to see a side of Vader you’ve never seen before – and a side that the galaxy has never seen before!

Writer Dennis Hopeless (Cloak and Dagger, Jean Grey) invites you to experience all-new twisted adventures of the Dark Lord. With rising star artist Paolo Villanelli (Star Wars: Lando Double or Nothing, Star Wars: Rogue One Adaptation) taking on issue #1 and break-out artist Brian Level (Thanos Legacy, Amazing Spider-Man: Renew Your Vows) joining for issue #2, STAR WARS: VADER – DARK VISIONS takes readers to the darkest parts of the galaxy. Places where even the mysterious anti-hero known as Darth Vader can be someone’s greatest fear, and even…someone’s greatest hope!

The limited series begins this spring, in a story that will shed a new light on the many sides of the galaxy’s greatest villain.
