Issue #2 starts with Luke and Kam rushing to Bast Castle to rescue the Ysanna who have been
kidnapped. They defeat the Dark Side agents but discover that the Ysanna have been covered in Carbonite. They return to the base and learn that the Emperor has discovered Leia's location and is on his way to take her child. Half of our heroes rush to protect Leia while the others go to sabotage the Emperors ship. Luke arrives in Leia's quarters just in time as the Emperor is about to take Anakin and Han shoots him to stop him, this forces the Emperor who is now nearly dead to transfer his life force to Anakin and possess him. He nearly succeeds if not for the robotic Jedi Brand who comes between the Emperor's life force and the child and manages to contain him within himself, this is the end of the Emperor but also Brand. Meanwhile Chewie and the other Rebels successfully sabotage the Emperor's ship so that it jumps through hyperspace to the gravity gun. This causes those controlling the gun to panic and fire it, destroying both the ship and the dark side planet Byss.
The close up on one of the Ysanna elder's faces when he realises that the Emperor is about to kill one hundred thousand Rebels. The use of colours really helps to highlight the anguish in his face.
The panel of all of the Rebel ships emerging together from hyperspace looks great.I love the use of muted colours.
I love the panel of the dead Sith Lords talking with the Emperor. The use of green really highlights the skeletal features of the corpses face.
