"Star Wars: Empire Ascendant #1 finds the Rebel Alliance — Luke Skywalker, Leia Organa, and Han Solo among them — building up Echo Base on the ice planet of Hoth while Darth Vader tries to locate the headquarters in vain. In addition to acting as an epilogue to the Star Wars flagship comic run, which followed the continuing adventures of our heroes after the events of Star Wars: A New Hope, the special one-shot will also address the fates of Doctor Aphra and Beilert Valance."

The Star Wars comic book series from Marvel was the first series that Marvel released after reacquiring the license from Dark Horse in 2015. The series followed the adventures of Luke, Han, Leia, Chewie, Artoo, and Threepio, after A New Hope leading up to The Empire Strikes Back
