Vader's Quest is a four issue comic book miniseries set in the Star Wars expanded universe, written by Darko Macan and drawn by Dave Gibbons and Angus McKie. Published by Dark Horse Comics, the original four issues appeared in February through May 1999; a trade paperback reprinting all four was released in December of that same year.


Darth Vader hires bounty hunters, including Brazzo, Selle, Fordee, Mala Mala, Beesix, and Ban Papeega, to find out who was responsible for the destruction of the Death Star. Thurlow Harris, a captured Rebel pilot who barely escaped the Death Star battle, informs him of the pilot's identity—Vader's son, Luke Skywalker—and Vader sets up a plan for catching him, which eventually fails. This series depicts the first meeting between Luke and his father.
