Dark Empire 1: The Destiny of a Jedi was the first issue of the 6 part Star Wars: Dark Empire series of comics. It was released on December 12, 1991 by Dark Horse Comics and reprinted on August 18, 1992.
Six years after Return of the Jedi, the Rebel Alliance has established a New Republic over three-fourths of the galaxy. The surviving Imperial Forces are torn by civil war and harassed by rebel attacks. One of these raids ends in disaster: Luke Skywalker and Lando Calrissian are shot down over the former Imperial City. When news reaches Han Solo and Leia Organa, they rush to the rescue… (along with Wookiee Chewbacca and droid C-3PO, of course!). But there's something else rushing toward the Imperial City… something that wants Luke.

The events of Destiny of a Jedi were adapted in the Dark Empire (audio) radio drama, which featured the music of John Williams' score from the films, as well as a voice cast that included Billy Dee Williams reprising his role as Lando Calrissian.
An independently produced animated adaptation of Destiny of a Jedi was released online in October 2019, which used the radio drama and the original comic as its basis.
