"No Good Deed..." is a mini-comic created by Chris Eliopoulos and Jordie Bellaire that was published in Darth Vader (2017) 1.


Onboard the Darth Vader's Venator-class Star Destroyer, Darth Vader orders a mouse droid to prepare his meditation chamber. Lord Vader is disturbed by Admiral Mummert who informs him that they are unable to deploy ships to the Hortolo system by his deadline since they had trouble gathering the proper divisions. Frustrated at his incompetence, Lord Vader Force chokes him to death.

Lord Vader then orders the mouse droid to resume preparing his meditation chamber. The Sith Lord is then disturbed by an Imperial general, who reports that they have 10,000 troops preparing to deploy. Vader is incensed since he ordered 50,000 troops. The general explains that their troops are spread out thinly throughout the galaxy. Tired of the general's excuses, Lord Vader Force chokes him as well. He orders the mouse droid to remove the general's body.

A third Imperial officer interrupts Lord Vader to inform him that his TIE fighter cannot be repaired. They have tried everything. An exasperated Lord Vader Force chokes him. He then orders the mouse droid to drag the officer's body out. When the droid returns, Lord Vader orders him to prepare his meditation chamber.

The droid connects to a network terminal and prepares the chamber. Lord Vader tells the mouse droid that it is the only one who has not tested his ire until now. The droid jumped at him and he used his lightsaber to destroy it. He remarked to himself, "At last." as he sat down for some quiet.



Notes and references[]

  1. The chestplate of Vader's armor in "No Good Deed..." is the same as its appearance in Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope. Therefore "No Good Deed..." takes place after Darth Vader: Dark Lord of the Sith, as that features his previous chestplate, but before his next chestplate appears in Star Wars (2015) 1. Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker: The Visual Dictionary places the construction of Fortress Vader, which Darth Vader (2017) 25 takes place immediately after, forty-six years before the Starkiller Incident, which Star Wars: Galactic Atlas dates to 34 ABY. As Star Wars: Galactic Atlas also dates Darth Vader (2015) 4 to 0 ABY, and Star Wars 1 takes place before it, the latest that "No Good Deed..." can be set is that year, meaning that it takes place between 12 BBY and 0 ABY.
