In the aftermath of the events of "Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi", you might think Luke, Leia, Han and co would be due for some downtime. You'd be wrong! The Empire is dying; but like a dog near death, the Empire is at its most dangerous, ready to lash out. Grand Admiral Thrawn may have found just the firepower needed to take a bite out of the New Republic: some two hundred Dreadnaught heavy cruisers, lost to hyperspace in the days of the Old Republic. Our heroes may be up against more than they bargained for, but it's not the first time the odds have been stacked against them! Written by Mike Baron ("Nexus") with art by superstars Terry Dodson ("Wonder Woman") and Kevin Nowlan ("She-Hulk"), this is an essential piece of the "Star Wars" saga!

The dying Empire's most cunning and ruthless warlord -- Grand Admiral Thrawn -- has taken command of the remnants of the Imperial fleet and launched a massive campaign aimed at the New Republic's destruction. With the aid of unimaginable weapons long hidden away by the Emperor on a backwater planet, Thrawn plans to turn the tide of battle, overwhelm the New Republic, and impose his iron rule throughout the galaxy. Meanwhile, Han and Lando Calrissian race against time to find proof of treason inside the highest Republic Council -- only to discover instead a ghostly fleet of warships that could bring doom to their friends and victory to their enemies. But most dangerous of all is a new Dark Jedi, risen from the ashes of a shrouded past, consumed by bitterness... and thoroughly, utterly insane. The Dark Jedi schemes to use his awesome mastery of the Force to summon young Skywalker allay his misgivings, cunningly enthrall him, and ultimately corrupt him to the Dark Side.About the Author :
