Star Wars 1: In the Shadow of Yavin, Part One is the first issue in the Star Wars comic book series, released in print and digitally on January 9, 2013. The series take place between Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope and Star Wars: Episode V The Empire Strikes Back.

Publisher's summary[edit | edit source]

This is Star Wars as you remember it... and as you have never seen it before! We're taking you back to those heady, adventure-filled days following the destruction of the Death Star—when the Empire ruled, the Rebels were on the run, and the galaxy was a dangerous place where anything might happen!

Continuity[edit | edit source]

A narrative box in the issue states that Alderaan was the first victim of the Death Star. This is not strictly true, as the Death Star had already destroyed the planet Despayre prior to the destruction of Alderaan.[2]
