Vader will be getting a new ongoing comic written by Charles Soule and artist Giuseppe Camuncoli. The story will take place after the events of Revenge of the Sith, showing us the early years of Darth Vader.
Soule describes this story as Dath Vader: Year One. Giving it the comparison to Frank Miller and David Mazzucchelli's Batman: Year One. “The book begins one second after the end of Revenge of the Sith. Darth Vader is in the armored suit that we see throughout the rest of his life, most of his life, He is just awakening to that moment and that realization. So he has shouted ‘No!’ in the way we see in the film, and then it picks up immediately after that point. So we see him adjusting to that. We see him learning to be more machine than man. We see him going through some really, really cool early moments of his early mythology and history." And yes, one of those moments will be Vader building his first red lightsaber.
This is amazing news for any Star Wars fan to finally get to see a red lightsaber being built and not too long to wait as it's the first arc! for more news on this check out the full post on IGN. http://ca.ign.com/articles/2017/03/10/origin-of-darth-vaders-lightsaber-to-be-revealed-in-new-comic
