Some thoughts on the second issue of Star Wars: Tales From Vader’s Castle – out now from IDW Publishing – I enjoyed #1, let’s see #2!
Tales from Vader’s Castle puts a spooky spin on your favorite characters from a galaxy far, far away…
This exciting weekly series explores the hidden corners of the Star Wars universe and features Rebels stars Hear, Kanan, and Chopper; Obi-Wan Kenobi and Count Dooku; Han Solo and Chewbacca; the Ewoks; and of course, Darth Vader -all under the shadow of Vader’s Castle!

Still crashed on the planet of Mustafar – a planet with dark connections – the rebels look for a way to escape…
As they make their way to the castle, we get another horror story. This one is a good one, with vampire connections. This is nice and ironic, as it also features Count Dooku. of course the image of Christopher Lee adds to the mystery. This was a fun story, with some nice monster tropes transferred to the universe of Star Wars.
the art is nice and gothic with some good scenes of action and a real Hammer Horror feel.
