General Dodonna was one of the Old Republic’s most brilliant strategists. Now he must use all of his knowledge and all of his tricks to outwit the commanders of the Imperial fleet-many of whom were trained with his own tactics. To give the fledgling Rebel Alliance time to consolidate its forces, Dodonna chooses as a base an ancient, deserted temple on a moon orbiting a gaseous planet. But setting up Yavin Base is complicated by the need to raid Imperial convoys, internal squabbles among the Rebel leaders, and by the monstrous creatures who have also laid claim to the temple. This two-issue story reveals little-known secrets about the early Rebellion.

While establishing the Rebel base on Yavin IV, General Dodonna clashes with fellow Rebel commander Roons Sewell over plans for the future of the still fledgling Alliance. Sewell is a charismatic leader who has won the hearts and minds of the rebel rank and file, but his flair for the dramatic worries the more pragmatic Dodonna. It’s age and experience versus youth and vigor. But with the Empire searching for the new base, and ready to swoop in and destroy the rebels at the first opportunity, the behind the scenes struggle between Dodonna and Sewell could have unexpected – and unwanted – results for the Alliance!

Before Luke Skywalker, the Rebel Alliance had another hero: Biggs Darklighter. For the first time, the full story of Luke?s boyhood friend is revealed; from his departure from Tatooine to attend the Imperial Academy, to his decision to lead a mutiny against the Empire and join the Rebellion, to the fateful attack on the Death Star.

Writer Paul Chadwick has resurrected scenes that were shot for Star Wars: A New Hope, but which ended up on the cutting room floor, and extrapolated from them the life and times of Luke Skywalker?s best friend; and artist Doug Wheatley has produced stunning artwork for one of the most acclaimed Star Wars comics stories ever. An essential companion to A New Hope, and an exciting addition to any Star Wars library!

Also included: ?The Short, Happy Life of Roons Sewell,? by Chadwick and artist Tom?s Giorello. A revealing look at one of the early leaders of the Rebel Alliance; a man haunted by a dark past and driven to a heroic, but self-destructive fate.
