Marvel Comics has provided ComicBook.com with an exclusive preview of Star Wars: Darth Vader #24, the penultimate issue of the epic Star Wars series from writer Kieron Gillen and artist Salvador Larroca.
In Star Wars: Darth Vader #24, Darth Vader's end game is in motion, but things aren't quite going according to plan. The Darl Lord of the Sith sent the murderous droids Beetee and Triple Zero to capture Vader's former ally, the rogue archaeologist Doctor Aphra. However, Aphra managed to turn the droids' programming against them, and they helped her escape instead. However, just as Aphra seemed to be in the clear, a new plan came to her.
Meanwhile, Vader himself has tracked down the traitorous scientist Cylo with plans to end his threat once and for all. However, Cylo caught Vader off guard, hitting him with a kill switch that shut down Vader's essential cybernetic implants. Now Vader is trapped within his own mind, and Cylo seems to have the upper hand.
Star Wars: Darth Vader #24 goes on sale in comic book stores and in digital comic book store fronts on Aug. 10, 2016. Check out the full set of preview pages in the gallery located at the bottom of the article.
