Publisher's summary[]

Five years after the fall of the Empire, Luke Skywalker is the first in a new line of Jedi Knights. Han Solo and Princess Leia have married, together assuming many burdens of the New Republic's government. But across the galaxy lies a dying part of the Empire—all the more dangerous near death—and it has just discovered something that could bring it back to life! The last of the Emperor's warlords, Admiral Thrawn, is ready to destroy the New Republic—and the odds are stacked heavily against Luke, Leia, and Han!

Back Cover summary[]

Five years after the events in Return of the Jedi, Luke Skywalker has become the first in a long-awaited line of Jedi Knights. But the galaxy is not yet safe. The defeated Imperial Fleet has found a new commander in the last of the Emperor's warlords, Grand Admiral Thrawn, who has made two vital discoveries that could destroy Luke's - and the Galactic Alliance's New Republic.

For the first time, the comic-book adaptations of Timothy Zahn's renowned novels of the Thrawn Trilogy are collected in one collector's-quality volume.

Internal Flap[]

In 1991, after a five-year "dry spell" in which no new Star Wars fiction saw print, Bantam Spectra published Timothy Zahn's novel Heir to the Empire, which raised interest in that galaxy far, far away to a level that had not been seen since the release of the "last" of the films, Return of the Jedi. Later that same year, Dark Horse Comics obtained the Star Wars comic-book license, and a merging of interests seemed inevitable.

Now, nearly twenty years after the publication of the initial chapters of the Thrawn Trilogy, the comics adaptations of the three novels - Heir to the Empire, Dark Force Rising, and The Last Command are collected here in one volume. Though in the intervening years, novels and comics have carried on with the adventures of Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia, Han Solo and the other stalwarts from the Star Wars saga, for those who are only familiar with the events in the films and who have always wondered what happened next, this is the place to begin.
