The Star Wars series takes a turn as they focus on Darth Vader for a special two issue subplot “Five Days of the Sith”. What I was not expecting was just how cool this issue would be. Vader begins dealing out judgement and what happens is a tale you’ll not want to miss. Click here to read our full review.

While the cover may show Batman and Lex Luthor fighting each other, the real showdown is between Power Ring and Batman. As everyone arms themselves for war, things heat up and this issue ends with a fight that has only just begun. All in all, there’s lots of villainous fun in this issue. Click here for our full review.
