“The Shu-Torun War” is the fourth story arc of the Darth Vader comic book series, the second ongoing comic book from the Marvel line-up of Star Wars comics. Darth Vader os written by the excellent Kieron Gillen and illustrated by Salvador Larroca. The series focuses on what Darth Vader was up to during the time between the destruction of the Death Star and his confrontation with Luke on Cloud City. The series also stars Dr. Aphra, a weapons specialist/Indiana Jones style adventurer and her two droids, BT-1 and 0-0-0 (or BeeTee and Triple Zero), affectionately called the Murder Bots. For the sake of time and space, this article cannot and will not cover every aspect of the arc, but focus on the biggest strengths, and errors, the arc.
