Complete Vader Preview & Discount At B&N

Posted By Eric on October 12, 2011

Interested in picking up The Complete Vader! Barnes & Noble has updated its product page for the book to make buying it even more enticing. Not only have they lowered the price to $33 (a 45% discount off its $60 list price), but they've posted a video walkthrough, multiple full-page scans, and an interview with authors Pete Vilmur and Ryder Windham.



Here's a snippet from the B&N interview:

What do think it is about Darth Vader that has made him a global icon for decades now?

RW: For one thing, concept artist Ralph McQuarrie came up with a truly incredible looking character. But I think Darth Vader has become such an icon because just the sight of him taps into a wide range of emotions, from fear and desire to sympathy. Many people would love to have Darth Vader's powers, but few people want to be Darth Vader. Even though we know his whole life story, Vader remains weirdly enigmatic.

PV: I actually approached this question in a chapter about Vader's international appeal, suggesting that because the character is masked, essentially anyone—any face—might be behind it, allowing us to project whomever we want into an archetype of evil. Of course, as Vader's story evolved, he also became a somewhat sympathetic, tragic hero, giving audiences an emotional bond with the character. It doesn't hurt that Vader happens to be very photogenic as well.
