An iconic Rebel Alliance leader gets murdered by Darth Vader in Star Wars #54



A major Rebel Alliance character gets killed this week.

SPOILERS ahead. You’ve been warned.

In the latest story arc from Star Wars written by Kieron Gillen and drawn by Salvadore Larroca, Darth Vader is on a mission and it involves quite a bit of murder. He’s attempting to kill Princess Leia who must flee or die. This issue shows off some impressive Darth Vader moments where his cold-blooded nature is a sight to see.

As Darth Vader slashes through the Rebel Alliance soldiers, he comes upon a familiar face: the face of General Draven, who was prominently displayed in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.

Attempting to bide Leia time, Draven stands in Darth Vader’s way. You can guess how that goes.
