Don't hold on to the past and never cheat your fate that is planned for you. The tides of war are turning to the Rebellion, but they have to get through many obstacles to reach what they desire, peace throughout the galaxy. Continuing the graphic novel of At war with the Empire, Luke Skywalker is challenged with the un-forgivable deeds his father has engraved on the galaxy already. To help him along the way, Princess Leia, one of the top generals for the Rebellion, is helping her friend through ...more
"General" Skywalker:

- Luke is a bit egotistical in this story. He still thinks he can do it all. *sigh* Tapping into the Force during the Battle of Yavin made his head grow.
- Some of the art isn't the best, but it did help add to the story - especially the two-page spread enveloping both trilogies.
- Able 1707 seemed like a non-Jango clone at times. He didn't age well, IMO. As in, he should appear older.

- From the cover, I was worried the art wouldn't be good, but it's the same crew
These Omnibus collections include about 20 issues from the Empire and Rebellion series of Dark Horse comics. There are several arcs included, of varying quality. My favorite is Small Victories, focusing on a rebel with self-doubts getting roped into an important mission. Another good one is Breaking the Ice, which highlights Leia and Han in the days just before Empire Strikes Back. The main section of the book, In the Shadows of their Fathers and the Ahakista Gambit, aren't nearly as entertainin ...more
Ce deuxième tome de la compilation des histoires parus sous le nom de Empire n'est pas mauvais. Il y a des histoires que j'ai particulièrement comme celle de la bataille de Jabiim où Luke doit combattre la mauvaise impression que son père a laissé sur cette planète lors de la Guerre des Clones. J'ai aussi plus apprécié l'histoire de Vector après avoir lu toutes les histoires qui y amène.

Il y a aussi d'autres histoires moins intéressantes mais en général, cette BD et son premier tome est une bon
This Omnibus collects various comics from the series Empire and Rebellion (Empire 26-27, 29-30, 32-35, Rebellion 6-16, and the Valentine one-shot).

Essentially, these stories represent random stories set between Episodes IV and V. The art is really good, and the stories are fun.

The problem is that there are comic arcs that are intentionally missing. Empire 29-30 and 32-34 tell the story "In the Shadows of their Fathers", and Rebellion 11-14 tell the story "Small Victories." The problem is that Em
Slightly better in most ways from the previous volume, but not quite enough to earn another star. The cheesecake art makes its return in one story arc, but otherwise the art is generally better in this volume.

Many of the stories portray loss, but aren't quite as dark as in the previous volume. There's still not that much that's memorable, but it at least feels a bit closer to the spirit of the original trilogy.
I suppose this omnibus was good but I have already forgotten most of the storylines. The Ahakista Gambit was good and I liked the story linking back to Jabim. It had good artwork at least. Most of the other stories were pretty forgetable though I like the introduction of Deena Shan in Small Victories.
The struggling Rebellion has won their first major victory by destroying the Death Star, but the war against the Empire has just begun.
Farm boy turned hero Luke Skywalker gets his first inkling of what it once meant to be a Jedi; Luke and Princess Leia encounter a society that blames its plight on the Clone Wars " traitor" Anakin Skywalker; a powerful crime lord leads the Empire, the Rebels, and his own spies in a circle of betrayal; Darth Vader lures Luke, Leia, and Han to a desolate moon for a
The Empire comics included in this are ok, but I could not get into the Rebellion series.
Not a bad collection, though obviously missing pieces of the story...
