Modern Marvel: Star Wars: Darth Vader #25 Most Good Hobby Exclusives

In the Expanded Universe, General Tagge died when the Death Star was destroyed at the Battle of Yavin.  His siblings, Orman, Silas, Ulric, and Domina, are introduced in Marvel's original series and the House of Tagge are the main antagonist for the heroes in several story arcs prior to The Empire Strikes Back adaptation.

In the new canon under Disney's ownership of Lucasfilm, General Tagge was not aboard the Death Star when it was destroyed.  Instead, after the battlestation's destruction, he was promoted to Grand General and led the Imperial military; Darth Vader also became Tagge's subordinate.  In Darth Vader #25 after a series of blunders including the loss of the Executor to Cylo, Tagge found himself demoted and reporting to Darth Vader who promptly used the force to choke him to death.

Most Good Hobby is an online comic retailer that released a John Tyler Christopher action figure cover featuring General Tagge for Darth Vader #25.  This exclusive is limited to 3,000 copies.
