Opening crawl[edit | edit source]

THE ORIGINAL MARVEL YEARS
VOL. 3
After a failed attempt at repaying crime lord Jabba the
Hutt, smuggler pilot Han Solo and his Wookiee partner
Chewbacca rejoin their companions Luke Skywalker,
Princess Leia, C-3PO, and R2-D2, and find themselves
running from galactic pirates led by the devious Crimson
Jack.

As the Rebel Alliance searches for a new base of
operations safe from the prying eyes of the evil Galactic
Empire, the crafty Baron Tagge has plans of his own for the
rebels. Tagge intends to win the Emperor's favor for his
family and upstage the fearsome Darth Vader, but is
thwarted at every turn.

Meanwhile, Vader has finally learned the identity of the
pilot who destroyed the Death Star: Luke Skywalker. Under
the guise of diplomacy, Vader arranges a meeting with the
rebels and comes face-to-face with Luke - but before they
can resolve their conflict, the rebels escape once again.

Elsewhere, Jabba's underlings discover the remains of
Crimson Jack's ship, and blame the missing cargo and
stolen treasure on Han and Chewbacca - restoring the
price on their heads and sending bounty hunters after the
rebels. But despite the many months of hardship, the
rebels have finally found a new base: the frozen world of
Hoth....
