They thought they were going on a nice, easy charter to Alderaan and finally pay off their sizable debts, but lovable rogue Han Solo and his life debt owing friend Chewbacca soon found themselves involved in "Imperial entanglements"! Though, in all honesty, before meeting Luke Skywalker, Ben Kenobi and friends on Tatooine, the duo weren't exactly strangers to danger, adventure and devil may care heroism, as Brian Daley's sterling 1979-81 trilogy of original, all-new adventures, fully approved by Lucasfilm, arrived thirty-five years ago, telling some of their pre- EPISODE IV antics with great readability and page-turning skill- beginning with the classic tale: Han Solo at Stars' End!
Modern STAR WARS artist supremo Chris Trevas captures the flavour of our heroes from that time with the above art, alongside their then unique new droid pal Bollux and mini super-computer Blue Max. The premiere STAR WARS REBELS novel A New Dawn may be getting all the attention right now, but let's not forget this classic book, which, alongside Splinter of the Mind's Eye, did so much to launch the saga's original fiction adventures range into what it is today.
