Following the victory of the raid and destruction of the Death Star, the Rebel Alliance is under the watch of Darth Vader and the Empire. Struggling to find a permanent base and new allies, Princess Leia and her squadron must defeat the Star Destroyer and forces from the Imperial Center. Meanwhile, Han Solo and Chewy are on their own mission for the Rebels when they are outnumbered by a fleet of Stormtroopers. These great heroes of the Rebellion must unite now more than ever in order to hold off the Galactic Empire in search of a new home.

This action packed graphic novel is a must read for the Star Wars fanatics of the world. The strengths of this comic come from the amazing graphics and empowering victories that Princess Leia and her team achieve. With loads of Star Wars specific terminology, I wouldn’t recommend this book to those who are new to the franchise. It is however, a wonderful addition to the collections of those who are part of the Star Wars fandom.
