Book Description

Emperor Palpatine’s twenty-year reign of terror came to an abrupt and fiery end in the skies above the forest moon of Endor. A decisive victory for the Rebel Alliance, to be sure, but even with the loss of its leadership, the Empire’s Moffs and regional governors retained their hold on important systems from the Core to the Outer Rim, thanks to the might of the Imperial Starfleet. Now, with a power vacuum atop the Empire, those Moffs will jockey for position and control, and the heroes of the Rebel Alliance will soon discover that a wounded and fractious Empire may be more dangerous than any threat they faced before! For the first time in the new Star Wars canon, journey with us into the time after the end of Return of the Jedi! Writer Greg Rucka and artist Marco Checchetto take us past the destruction of the second Death Star into the chaos of a Shattered Empire.

Pros
Shattered Empire #1 has a solid story line and manages to set the stage for the subsequent installments of this series.
Cons
The comic has a few shortcomings when it comes to the coloring, however, it is hardly recognizable due to the exceptional artwork.
Summary
This comic combines the great writing skills of Greg Rucka with the excellent artistic talent of Marco Chechetto, bringing all the Star Wars action to life. This comic, which is part of a four part series, is full of unrelenting energy and introduces readers to Shara Bey who is a rebel pilot with amazing skills. Rucka is able to skilfully incorporate this new character seamlessly into the plot through other established characters. For instance there is a flashback where it is revealed that Luke was able to make it out of a past situation with the much needed assistance of Shara. Other characters such as Han Solo also make it seem like Shara has been somewhere in the background from earlier on. This installment mainly establishes the main characters and helps build an intriguing plot. Checchetto skilfully crafts intricate aerial dogfight scenes that are simply awesome, to say the least. All in all this is a great introduction for the subsequent installments.
