Darth Vader and the Ninth Assassin was a five issue mini-series from Dark Horse Comics featuring a brand new Star Wars writer (Tim Siedell) and several new Star Wars artists. For issues #1, #3 and #4, Stephen Thompson handled the penciled artwork, while Ivan Fernandez did the pencils for #3 and #5. Mark Irwin did the inks for #1 and #2, while sharing the ink work with Drew Geraci and Jason Gorder on issue #4. Denis Freitas picked up the inks for issues #3 and #5. For all five issues, Michael Atiyeh handled the colors with Ariel Olivetti doing all the cover art.

Whether you liked the story or not, the series featured some really nice artwork and the artist posted quite a bit of the material online. Below you’ll find a collected gallery of the preliminary artwork, the pencilled artwork, the inked artwork, the final colors and the cover art.
