New York, NY – July 15th, 2015 – Two of the biggest comics in the world collide as STAR WARS and DARTH VADER cross over for the first time! Today, Marvel is pleased to present VADER DOWN – a blockbuster six-part crossover beginning this November! Chartbusting writers Jason Aaron (Star Wars, Thor) and Kieron Gillen (Darth Vader, Young Avengers) join forces with blockbuster artists Mike Deodato (Original Sin) and Salvador Larroca (Darth Vader) combine both ongoing Star Wars titles for a crossover in the mighty Marvel manner!
“This is a true crossover in the classic Marvel Style,” says Editor Jordan D. White. “Kicking off in the Vader Down one-shot, the story then bounces between DARTH VADER and STAR WARS, telling a story that is essential to the plotlines of both books, that takes the casts from each and smashes them together in one epic tale!”
Vader’s TIE Fighter has been shot down. Seeing this as their one, best chance to take Vader down once and for all, the Rebellion is ready to throw everything they have at him. Alone, outnumbered, and outgunned, Darth Vader now must face down the entire might of the Rebel Fleet. But the Rebels are about to learn the true unrestrained power of the Dark Side of the Force. With the Rebellion putting it all on the line, could this risky gambit cripple their forces in the fight against the Empire?

The comic book event of year continues as fans, retailers and critics agree—Secret Invasion is a smash hit! Secret Invasion has everyone asking “Who Do You Trust?” as the fate of the Marvel Universe may be in the hand from the intergalactic threat known as the Skrulls. In order to fully understand the Skrulls’ plan and how our heroes are working to stop them at all costs, these tie-ins give you the full scope on just how serious and dangerous the Skrulls really are!
Secret Invasion: Runaways/Young Avengers #1 starts us right in the middle of the Skrull’s armada arrival to Earth. How will both teams react with a Skrull on each? These two teen teams have to do what they can to push the Skrulls back, but can they trust their Skrull teammates?
Mighty Avengers #15 takes a trip back to the past around the time of Avengers Disassembled and reveals a major hero as a Skrull impostor. Find out just how long a certain hero was out of the picture and had a charlatan in his place.
New Avengers #42 also takes us back to the formation of the New Avengers and reveals just who was behind the breakout that brought the new team together. Make sure to check this out as the true start of the Secret Invasion started here.
Avengers: The Initiative # 14 spotlights how the Invasion has affected the Initiative and how much potential damage can be dealt by possibly having a Skrull in every state. With a special ex-Avenger Delroy Garret assuming the mantle of the greatest Skrull-Hunter Earth has seen, the Skrulls couldn’t possibly stand a chance. Right?
Ms. Marvel #28, featuring a not so happy Carol Danvers, drops us right in the middle of Manhattan as the Skrulls begin to spread and destroy. Having battled the new-age Super-Skrulls, and potentially losing someone she cared deeply for, Ms. Marvel has her sights set on anyone with green skin and is ready to hand out the bruises.
Now that the Invasion is underway and the world’s greatest heroes face impossible odds, have the Skrulls already won? Marvel urges retailers to check their orders on Secret Invasion and all tie-ins, as they continue to sell out quickly at Diamond. The Skrulls are here…and Who Do You Trust?
