Blurb: Luke Skywalker and the ragtag rebels opposing the Galactic Empire are fresh off their biggest victory so far – the destruction of the massive Death Star. But the Empire’s not toppled yet! Join Luke, Princess Leia, Han Solo, Chewbacca, C-3PO, R2-D2 and the rest of the Rebel Alliance as they fight for freedom against Darth Vader and his evil master, the Emperor! When a rebel assault goes wrong, Han and Leia must think fast to make their escape – while Luke comes face-to-face with Darth Vader! In the explosive aftermath, a humbled Luke returns to Tatooine to learn more about his mentor, Obi-Wan Kenobi. Meanwhile, Leia and Han undertake a vital – and dangerous – secret mission. But can they succeed without Luke? Plus: the menace of Boba Fett!
Highlight: True to life character artwork.
Highlight: The story continues on seamlessly from Episode VI
Review: This comic continues the story from episode VI in a natural progression and the writer Jason Aaron has developed the characters nicely. The artwork is for the most part very good although occasionally the characters do not look true to life. I would recommend this comic to all Star Wars fans regardless of age.
