THE NEWSPAPER STRIPS
VOL. 2
Months have passed since the Rebel Alliance destroyed the
Death Star, the evil Empire's greatest weapon. The rebel
heroes have miraculously kept the Emperor's fleet from
destroying their hidden base on Yavin 4 - but they know its
days are numbered, especially with the ever-increasing
Imperial bounties on their heads.

The Emperor's most favored servant, the cunning Darth
Vader, has made it his personal mission to find and destroy
the rebels. After nearly capturing Luke Skywalker and his
droid companions, C-3PO and R2-D2, Vader has learned
that Skywalker also has the power of the Force and was a
student of the legendary Jedi knight Obi-Wan Kenobi.

Armed with this knowledge, Vader develops a new plan of
attack - one that he believes will crush the Rebellion once
and for all. But Luke's new companion, the thief Tanith
Shire, has plans of her own....
