Books you should be reading...besides ours.

  I just finished a run to the comic shop...yes I go on Saturday's, sue me.  Anyway I always like to talk up about the books I've read, or one of my collegues here in the studio have read. This was once a column on our message board and I feel it should still be a topic on the blog. So without further adieu...

Star Wars: Darth Vader and the Lost Command. This book is the bridging gap between Vader from Revenge of the Sith (i.e. sissy Vader) and Vader from a New Hope (i.e. I just crapped my pants it's Lord Vader), and my God is it a great book. So without going into great detail, I'm going to repost some info from Dark Horse and let you seek out this book.

Writer: Haden Blackman
Penciller: Rick Leonardi
Inker: Dan Green

Cover Artist: Douglas Wheatley (25th Anniversary cover), Tsuneo Sanda
Publication Date: January 26, 2011

Still haunted by the events in Revenge of the Sith, Darth Vader must set aside his past and put his future on hold for a mission to the mysterious Ghost Nebula to locate--and if possible, rescue--a missing Imperial expeditionary force.
But what seems a perfect opportunity to lose himself in his duty is complicated by two factors: he is paired with a willful yet highly competent co-commander, and the officer they are being sent to locate is the son of Vader's rising nemesis, Moff Tarkin.
