New York, NY – July 15th, 2015 – Two of the biggest comics in the world collide as STAR WARS and DARTH VADER cross over for the first time! Today, Marvel is pleased to present VADER DOWN – a blockbuster six-part crossover beginning this November! Chartbusting writers Jason Aaron (Star Wars, Thor) and Kieron Gillen (Darth Vader, Young Avengers) join forces with blockbuster artists Mike Deodato (Original Sin) and Salvador Larroca (Darth Vader) combine both ongoing Star Wars titles for a crossover in the mighty Marvel manner!
“This is a true crossover in the classic Marvel Style,” says Editor Jordan D. White. “Kicking off in the Vader Down one-shot, the story then bounces between DARTH VADER and STAR WARS, telling a story that is essential to the plotlines of both books, that takes the casts from each and smashes them together in one epic tale!”
Vader’s TIE Fighter has been shot down. Seeing this as their one, best chance to take Vader down once and for all, the Rebellion is ready to throw everything they have at him.

With the Rebellion putting it all on the line, could this risky gambit cripple their forces in the fight against the Empire?

Comic-Con News: At the San Diego Comic-Con Dark Horse Comics announced an agreement with Nickelodeon to create a series of comic books based on The Legend of Korra TV series. When The Legend of Korra debuted on Nickelodeon four seasons ago, it set a new cable record for a kid’s show. The critically acclaimed Legend of Korra series, which was a follow-up to the hugely successful Avatar, The Last Airbender focused on a new Avatar, Korra, who mastered the four elements and her struggle to protect and bring balance to the world.
The fact that the new Legend of Korra comics, which ICv2 has learned will be digest-sized, will feature Korra and Asami, takes place after the conclusion of the events in Season 4 and is being written by the co-creator of the show means that these comics (like Dark Horse’s Avatar volumes) will become part of the Legend of Korra canon.
Dark Horse’s Avatar graphic novel collections did exceptionally well in both the comic book and bookstore marketplaces, and its Legend of Korra books are well-positioned to continue that success. Details about the creative teams and the launch date of Dark Horse’s Legend of Korra comics should be forthcoming in the next few weeks.
