Rogue One Remembered
The Alliance fighters are finally able to launch after being sabotaged. Luke leading his squadron into the fight has come a long way since Yavin 4. After all Luke has seen and learned about the sacrifices of Jyn Erso, Luke creates Rogue Squadron to honor their sacrifice.
Oh, it’s beautiful.
Speaking of Rogue One, General Draven does his best to make things right and stand up for the good fight.
Promoted with Cause
The losses are big, but the survivors of the fleet escape and scatter. Mon Mothma promotes Leia, Luke, and Han. For the Alliance to survive they need leaders.
A tech named Meorti helps assemble 3PO after a painful trip on an escape pod. Amidst the death and destruction she’s just helping any way she can.
A valuable lesson and a heartfelt truth.
3PO later tells R2 that Meorti means “hope.”
Built on Hope
This story is powerful and really has some great moments. It’s also a big step in our heroes growing to where we see them in The Empire Strikes Back. This is definitely a high point of the series.
This comic arc is a must-read for any original trilogy fan and lovers of Rogue Squadron!
