‘Discover an untold chapter in Luke Skywalker’s journey from orphan to Jedi knight in this middle-grade graphic novel set between A New Hope and The Empire Strikes Back! The Rebel Alliance has destroyed the Empire’s dreaded Death Star, but the Imperial starfleet continues hunting the rebels throughout the galaxy.
Luke Skywalker now seeks to support the Rebellion as an X-wing fighter. But as he flies with the pilots of the Red Squadron, Luke feels stirrings of the Force. And this farm-boy-turned-fighter-pilot begins to suspect that his destiny lies along a different path. This Star Wars adventure also foreshadows events to come in Episode VII: The Force Awakens!’
