Image of the Day: Epic Alex Ross cover for Star Wars: Darth Vader #1

Sensational artist Alex Ross scores with this striking variant cover for Marvel's Star Wars: Darth Vader #1, one of the new Star Wars comics coming next year from the House of Ideas.  In this bold artwork, the Dark Lord of the Sith stabs his lightsaber downward (take THAT, floor!) while flanked by a squad of trigger-happy stormtroopers.  Written by Kieron Gillen (Iron Man) with art by Salvador Larocca (Cable, X-Men), this solo series explores the exploits of Darth Vader between the periods covered in A New Hope and The Empire Strikes Back in the wake of the Death Star's obliteration and hits the shelves in February 2015.   How do you like Ross' devastating depiction of the Dark Lord?
