What happened in-between Star Wars Episode IV A New Hope and Episode V The Empire Strikes Back? This graphic novel, set during the Star Wars Darth Vader ongoing series answers that question.
After the Rebel Alliance destroyed the Death Star, the rebels are on a high attempting to destroy one of the largest Imperial factories in the galaxy. At first, things go well for Luke Skywalker, Leia Organa, and Han Solo who are leading the mission, but when Darth Vader himself shows up, Luke decides to confront him about the death of Obi-Wan Kenobi.
What follows is a great story featuring such classic characters like Chewbacca, Boba Fett, Jabba the Hutt, and Admiral Ackbar. It also introduces some new characters who are quite surprising in nature.
Written by Jason Aaron with artwork by John Cassaday, this is the first volume of the ongoing Star Wars comic book series by Marvel Comics. I am impressed by how much care Marvel is putting into making the new Star Wars expanded universe. While this series is not as good as Vader, it still has an impressive storyline and is just really cool. As a true Star Wars fan, not a fake one, I enjoyed it immensely.
