Aaaand we’re BACK! Happy Thursday, Fankind! We have some great books in store for you, including:


DARTH VADER #1 from Marvel Comics. In the shattering climax of The Empire Strikes Back, Darth Vader infamously reveals his true relationship to Luke Skywalker and invites his son to rule the galaxy at his side. But Luke refuses — plunging into the abyss beneath Cloud City rather than turn to the Dark Side. We all remember Luke’s utter horror in this life-altering moment. But what about Vader? In this new epic chapter in the Darth Vader saga, the dark lord grapples with Luke’s unthinkable refusal and embarks on a bloody mission of rage-filled revenge against everything and everyone who had a hand in hiding and corrupting his only son. But even as he uncovers the secrets of Luke’s origins, Vader must face shocking new challenges from his own dark past. Writer Greg Pak, artist Raffaele Ienco and colorist Neeraj Menon unleash Darth Vader on his dark quest of vengeance and discovery this February!


X-MEN + FANTASTIC FOUR #1 from Marvel Comics. KRAKOA. Every mutant on Earth lives there … except for one. But now it’s time for FRANKLIN RICHARDS to come home. It’s the X-Men vs. the Fantastic Four and nothing will ever be the same. Brought to you by the all-star team of writer Chip Zdarsky, along with art by Terry & Rachel Dodson, Dexter Vines and Karl Story and colors by Laura Martin.
