from the killing fields of Jabim, where the Empire has wiped
out the populace of that world, Imperial lieutenant Janek
Sunber is sent to the quiet prison base on Kalist VI. But,
unbeknownst to the Empire, the Rebels have designs on the
Kalist base both for its fuel supplies, and for the presence
of a very important prisoner - one of their own who has already
attracted the interest of Darth Vader. Sunber doesn't know
it, but he's on a collision course with an old friend who
is with the Rebels, and he will find himself wondering which
of them is on the wrong side of the war...
Wrong Side of the War is the seventh, and final, collection
in the Empire series of Star Wars graphic novels.
collection is set during the early days of the Rebellion -
when the Empire still held the galaxy in its grip of iron.
After a dangerous assault on Jabiim, the last remaining rebels
and their leader Jorin Sol are captured and taken to an Imperial
base on Kalist IV. As Sol is interrogated, a team of rebel
intelligence officers take the initiative by infiltrating
the base disguised as the crew of an Imperial fuel tanker.
And one of those rebels is Luke Skywalker...
things might not go that smoothly, as Luke is about to come
face to face with an old friend from his past - one who will
instantly recognise him. Can Luke save Jorin Sol, the Rebel
base and his old friend?
really enjoyed this collection. And while The Wrong Side
of the War takes up the majority of the pages, this graphic
novel opens with an interesting short story - Model Officer.
This sees an apparently unlucky officer who fails to carry
out Darth Vader's orders successfully on a number of occasions.
But why is the poor man so unlucky when it comes to his missions?
for one, am sorry to see the end of this series. Every volume
has been well above average, and certainly a series that serious
Star Wars fans shouldn't miss out on. This final volume
is certainly one which fans will be proud to add to their
those that are hungry for more, the good news is that the
story continue in the new Rebellion series - the first
volume being My
Brother, My Enemy.
