The fate of Jedha!

I bought this in its single comic book issues, but I chosen this TPB edition to be able of making a better overall review.

This TPB edition collects “Star Wars” #38-43.

This comic book run is set after the events of “Star Wars IV: A New Hope” but before the events of “Star Wars V: The Empire Strikes Back”.

Creative Team:

Writer: Jason Aaron

Illustrator: Salvador Larroca


The situation is… hostile.

We’re the Empire, you little fool. We thrive on hostile. The universe says “no” and we twist its arm until it howls “yes”.

After the destruction of the Death Star, it’s obvious that the Empire got quite short of kyber crystals since the most of its reverves were onboard the huge mobile space station, so they need to get more, and the only place is…


But, that particular planet was the first target practice of the dissapeared Death Star, and while it only was hit with the power of one generator…

…not only Jedha City become dust, but the planet itself got a deep impact creating a gigantic hole, unbalanced not only its atmospheric environment but even…

…The Force got unbalanced there!

Saw Gerrera is no more, but his partisans still are fighting in a ruined world, and now with a kinda of unwanted boost of Rebel Alliance forces lead by Leia, along with Luke and Han, the Empire detachment sent there to look for kyber crystals is having a headache to achieve its mission…

Enter: General Kanchar!

A very tall and massive, uber-brawny, and with a versatile cybernetic arm, Imperial Officer assigned to fix the lack of kyber crystals shipments.

And along with the mining advisement of Queen Trios of Shu-Torun (previously seen in this comic book run), the new commander in what remains of Jedha, expects to solve the hostile situation soon.

While Rebels and Partisans battle against the Galactic Empire, their own methods couldn’t be more different, so an “alliance” between the two resistance groups is quite fragile and not easy to make it work against formidable enemies.

But, don’t forget that Jedha used to be a key Jedi place, not only for the kyber crystals but also for its Jedi temples, and young Luke Skywalker wants to look for any remaining Jedi building for any clue for his already struggled self-training to become a Jedi Knight.
