Plot summaryEdit

FORTRESS VADER
Part I
The Republic is overthrown. Emperor Palpatine rules
the galaxy with an iron fist.

Second only to the Emperor is Palpatine's apprentince —
the fearsome Darth Vader. Vader's fall to the dark side
of the Force and defeat at the hands of Obi-Wan
Kenobi leaves him confined to a suit of cybernetic
armor to preserve his life. Now, he lives only to serve
his master's Empire.

To ensure the survival of this New Order, Vader leads a
squad of dark side adepts — the Inquisitorius — in
rooting out and destroying the greatest threat to
Palpatine's rule — the remaining Jedi Knights....

ContinuityEdit

The main cover art for the comic is a variation of the Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope movie poster.[2]

In a panel with a hologram containing a list of Jedi survivors, Selrahc Eluos and Ka-Moon Kholi are listed, which are both tuckerisms of author Charles Soule and penciller Giuseppe Camuncoli, respectfully. Soule's tuckerism is of his full name, while Camuncoli's tuckerism is only of his last name.

Matt Martin later confirmed that Eluos and Kholi were actual characters in canon continuity, and not simply easter eggs.[3]
