Darth Vader #1
W: Kieron Gillen

Marvel has released the first issue of the “Darth Vader” mini-series. The story picks up after the destruction of the Empire’s first Death Star and after the events of Marvel’s Star Wars #1 and #2. But could there be a glimpse of an Episode VII character revealed in Darth Vader’s story?
***Spoiler and Conjecture Time***
This is unconfirmed concept art from The Force Awakens that depicts a patron who spends his days at a bar on a particular desert planet.
The rumor is that this patron will be played by Max Von Sydow and that his character recognizes a certain lightsaber that Daisy Ridley’s character produces.
And this is a mysterious character from the first issue of Darth Vader.
Could this be a younger version of Max Von Sydow’s character?
With everything from TV shows, books, comic books and toys now being treated as cannon, is Disney dropping bread crumbs for fans as to what we’ll be seeing in Episode VII? This of course is complete conjecture, but what if?
