Leia returns to the Alliance fleet with a plan to bring Shu-Torun and Queen Trios to their knees. But if the Rebels need to fight through hell itself, they’ll need warriors who have already fought through an apocalypse.
Kieron Gillen finishes his Star Wars run with a bang in this arc. The art by both Andrea Broccardo and Angel Unzueta is great and has the expressiveness a story like this needs.
The plan requires a shapeshifter to the rebels seek out Tunga Arpagion once again! Tunga has taken his adventures to the stage and we find him performing his treasonous space opera while changing the names for legal reasons…
Leia seeks out the Partisans once again. Her plea is compelling and Benthic agrees.
On Shu-Torun, incoming travelers arrive! They seem a bit strange though and answer the standard questions oddly. Turns out the Cult of the Central Isopter has followed the tremors of the Force to witness death.
Meta Gear 3PO
C-3PO gets a disguise to accompany Tunga on their undercover mission!

Whatever it Takes
Benthic wants the empire to suffer as Jedha suffered. If he has his way the planet will be torn apart.
Queen Trios knows that it is Princess Leia behind the attack. She also knows what a cunning enemy Leia will do whatever it takes to stop her and save her planet.
To the Pain
Leia and Trios face off as the world crumbles around them.
Until We Reach the Last Edge
Han and Benthic share a moment remembering their brief meeting years ago and everything that has changed since.
Save the Dream
This arc is action packed with your usual Star Wars moments. It’s also a deeper look into the rebels and why they fight. And how far they are willing to go.
This comic arc is a must-read for Leia fans and fans of Rogue One. The tone, style, and questions it raises give us some great food for thought.
