For the first time in a generation, those opposed to the Empire have a chance to reclaim the galactic capital Coruscant. Whether this becomes the New Republic's finest hour or its darkest defeat lies squarely on the shoulders of Wedge Antilles and his team of ace X-Wing pilots - Rogue Squadron. Witness the rise of the Empire's deadliest pilot Baron Fel, follow the machinations of Imperial power-player Ysanne Isard, and discover the fate of Interim-Emperor Sate Pestage as one of the most epic sagas in
Star Wars unfolds...

In the aftermath of the Battle of Endor and the dissolution of the Empire, a crack team of X-Wing pilots flies the missions nobody else dares to attempt. Led by war hero Wedge Antilles, Rogue Squadron are the best of the best.

Volume Three in the Star Wars: Omnibus: X-Wing Rogue Squadron collects together issues #12-35 of the comic series of the same name. Stories include In the Empire's Service, The Making of Baron Fel, Family Ties, Masquerade and Mandatory Retirement.

The writing is as strong as we've come to expect from this series and the art work is incredibly detailed. The characters introduced in this series are also well handled - there's no flat, two dimensional characters here.

On the subject of the art work, it reminded me a lot of some of the intricate work that was produced during the '70s when the Star Wars movie was originally released. The comic book adaptation of A New Hope, while a little dated now, was incredibly well illustrated - with more detail than was really necessary for a series that was really aimed at children. Anyone who remembers the excitement of reading those collections will get the same experience from reading this new series.

This is one series that serious Star Wars fans need to add to their collection.
