It is six years after the events of Return of the Jedi. The new republic are struggling to wipe away the remnants of the old evil empire. The champion of the new republic (Luke Skywalker) is suffering from massive internal struggles over which side of the force he truly lies upon...

Couple this together with Leia being pregnant (twins), a clone of the evil emperor palpatine and the fact that Han solo still doesn't have a clue what this force thing is all about and you end up with a pretty entertaining graphic novel.

Dark Empire itself was one of the first original Star Wars stories to come about (this being its third edition) and it certainly is one of the better ones. The story never really gets boring and the artwork, whilst not fantastic, is good at setting the scene and fits in with the pace.

All in all this is a hard graphic novel not to like. It has starship battles, a revenge story, a love story and best of all R2D2 is still there. It is also a classic clash between good and evil and that sure isn't a bad thing.
