"You... only know... half 'The Force'... Vader...! You perceive its full power... as little as a spoon... perceives the taste of food!"
―Obi-Wan Kenobi[src]

Star Wars 4: In Battle with Darth Vader is the fourth issue in Marvel's Star Wars series of comics, and part four of the six-part adaptation of A New Hope.

In 1994, Dark Horse Comics acquired the rights to reprint this issue and the other parts in the adaptation.

Plot summaryEdit

After having some difficulty escaping Imperial stormtroopers aboard the Death Star I, Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, Chewbacca and the rescued Princess Leia Organa meet with the droids R2-D2 and C-3PO at Docking Bay 327, which holds the Millennium Falcon. Obi-Wan Kenobi also arrives but is confronted by Darth Vader, and the two engage in a lightsaber duel. Vader strikes Kenobi down in the duel, but in the confusion Luke, Leia, Han, and the rest of the group make good their escape from the Death Star aboard the Falcon.

Other contentEdit

This is the first issue in which fan letters are printed in the letters page, now titled Star-Words.

In the comic the garbage compactor in which Luke, Han, Chewbacca, and Leia are trapped is number 366117891, rather than 3263827 as it is in the film.
