Plot summaryEdit

BURNING SEAS
Part I
Some time has passed since the ascension of
Emperor Palpatine, the formation of his great
Galactic Empire, and the descent of former Jedi
Knight Anakin Skywalker into his new form as twisted
half-man, half-machine  Darth Vader — Sith apprentice
to Palpatine.

Vader and his squad of evil Force-wielding hunters,
the Inquisitors, have had great success seeking out
the few survivors of the purge that destroyed the
noble Jedi Order just prior to Palpatine's rise. Few
Jedi remain in the galaxy.

But now, a threat has arisen to the Emperor's
still-new, still-vulnerable regime, and Vader must
confront both his past and his present....

ContinuityEdit

Upon release, the opening crawl of Darth Vader 13 read that "three years" had passed since the proclamation of the New Order, and Darth Sidious later stated that he had been Galactic Emperor for three years. Due to the Sixth Brother's appearance in the issue,[2] these statements contradicted the young adult novel Ahsoka, in which the Sixth Brother dies shortly after the Galactic Empire's first anniversary.[3] Additionally, one panel of the issue referred to Wilhuff Tarkin as a Grand Moff,[2] although the novel Tarkin established that rank was not yet created.[4] These contradictions, along with other minor changes to the opening crawl, were amended in the issue's digital edition.

In one panel, Commander Jordo, an Imperial Security Bureau officer in white uniform, is depicted with a standard Imperial military uniform, despite being in the same sequence of events where he was depicted in the standard white ISB uniform. In another panel, Tarkin also appears to refer to Colonel Bergon as Commander Jordo.
