THE SCARES RETURN TO A GALAXY FAR, FAR AWAY THIS OCTOBER

Last year IDW Publishing surprised me with Star Wars Adventures: Tales From Vader's Castle, a weekly five-issue anthology mini-series telling horror stories in adventures with Han Solo, Chewbacca, and a number of other notable characters in the universe. This October, the publisher is doing it again with Star Wars Adventures: Return to Vader's Castle. Writer Cavan Scott and artist Francesco Francavilla will tell the story of torment deep within Fortress Vader that serves as the framework for the five tales of terror on display in the series.

“I am over the moon to be returning to Vader’s Castle for another helping of Halloween horror from a galaxy, far, far away. And what better way to celebrate the scariest time of the year than by focusing on the villains of the Star Wars saga?” says Scott. “The response to our last visit to Mustafar was phenomenal, and I hope fans will join us once again, embracing the dark side in the company of Sith, warlords, and crazed Imperial scientists.”

Francavilla says, "I'm hyper-excited to be back working on Vader’s Castle! I had so much fun doing the covers for the first mini, and Cavan’s tales are such a delight, that I was happy to hear from IDW that there would be a sequel. I agreed to work on interior pages as well, so it's double the fun for me and for all the readers!"

Each issue will center on a different villain and they're all written by Scott. The artists will change with each one.

  1. Darth Maul, illustrated by Megan Levens: “Maul is the counterpoint and nemesis of my favorite character from the saga, Obi-Wan Kenobi, so getting to tell a part of his story (and draw those fabulous tattoos) was something I didn't hesitate to sign up for!”
     
  2. Grand Moff Tarkin, illustrated by Kelley Jones: “Although I rooted against him, I always had a sneaking admiration for Tarkin, as he was – in all honesty – the real evil of the Empire: cold, calculating, and all too human!”
     
  3. Asajj Ventress, illustrated by Nick Brokenshire: “I can't wait to show you the super-creepy shenanigans we're getting up to in the Star Wars universe!”
     
  4. Jabba the Hutt, illustrated by Nicoletta Baldari: “These are the comics you're looking for!"
     
  5. Darth Vader, illustrated by Charles Paul Wilson III: “I told IDW that I'd draw the Kessel Run in less than 14 parsecs if they could get me on this book again, and they told me I could do it…but only if it was in under 12.”

Star Wars Adventures: Return to Vader's Castle will feature main covers by Francavilla, a secondary cover by that issue's guest artist, and a special black-and-white retailer incentive cover by Francavilla. The first issue will also feature a special Derek Charm retailer incentive variant.
