"Worst of all, that contact makes certain what we could only suspect up to now-- Darth Vader is alive--!"
―Luke Skywalker[src]

Star Wars 21: Shadow of a Dark Lord is the twenty-first issue in the Marvel Star Wars series of comics.

PlotEdit

Princess Leia escapes from Simon Greyshade's suite, where she was held captive, and finds Luke Skywalker, who has now recovered from his trance-like state. Luke reveals that his trance was caused by touching someone else's mind through the Force for a moment; someone strong with the Force who he suspects to be Darth Vader. At the same time Greyshade is meeting with his new partner Commander Strom, The Wheel's administrator who has secretly sent his Wheel Security Force to subdue Strom's troops and recover the money that they had stolen from The Wheel. And now that Han Solo is getting ready to enter the main event of The Big Game he realizes that Chewbacca is also entered in the contest, and according to the rules there can be only one survivor. Meanwhile on the planet Ultaar, Darth Vader finds the remains of a Rebel information retrieval team wiped out by the bounty hunter Beilert Valance. Vader realizes that Valance is searching for the same thing as himself: the boy who destroyed the Death Star I. The race is on to see who finds him first.
