Star Wars Insider #145 sports Vader on the cover because inside is a serious treat: ten Star Wars authors and artists tackling the character and weighing in on whether he’s a villain or a victim. Also inside is new fiction by Jen Heddle, a cool dialog between George Lucas and Alan Dean Foster discussing Splinter of the Mind’s Eye, a look at The Lando Calrissian Adventures, and much more.

For me, the highlight of this issue was the “Darth Vader: Victim or Villain” article. To answer the question, they brought in Timothy Zahn, Aaron Allston, John Jackson Miller, Christie Golden, Michael Reaves, Maya Kaathryn Bohnhoff, Doug Wheatley, Kevin Hearne, Ryder Windham and Joe Schreiber (though it’s worth noting that Jason Fry also weighs in on the subject). The experts were asked “Is Darth Vader really a bad guy or a victim of tragic circumstance?”, “Who is really to blame for the tragedy of Darth Vader? Anakin, Obi-Wan Kenobi, the Jedi, or Palpatine?”, and “Can he truly be redeemed give the atrocities committed: The murder of the younglings, the destruction of Alderaan, torturing Leia, the purge, and his other murderous acts?” The answers are surprising, well thought out and very insightful. The wide array of authors (plus artist) gives a wide variety of answers. All in all, this was a very cool article and I’d love to see more like this in future issues of Insider.
