Any time artist Alex Ross does something, chances are good that I’m going to be a fan of it. With the announcement I heard today, I’ve got something to add to my pull list in 2015.

In a new series from Marvel Comics entitled “Star Wars: Darth Vader”, events follow The Empire’s most powerful character, and the variant cover by Alex Ross is a must-own.

Announced by StarWars.com, the fully-painted cover for issue 001 looks incredible, capturing the glow of the iconic red lightsaber perfectly so that it leaps off the page.

More details as they arise, because I want to know exactly when I can buy this beauty. Here’s to hoping they release a poster-sized version of the artwork.
