As a lead-in to STAR WARS REBELS, AFICIONADO presents a series of images featuring characters, events and history linked to the ultimate creation of the Rebel Alliance against the Empire.
Surveying the incredible power of the Empire which he now commands in the Emperor's name, the cause dedicated, terror-wielding, cruel governor of the outlying star systems, the repulsive Grand Moff Tarkin, rules with an iron rod and an equally despicable heart- his name despised and hated by peoples across legions of suppressed worlds. With the equally threatening Darth Vader seconded to assist him in the creation of the nearing completion space fortress weapon that is the Death Star, a man/machine whose fire and determination he respects- a genuine dagger blade into the heart of any rising malcontent, the path to the Empire's ultimate dominion of the universe for decades to come seems decidedly assured...
Retaining his title as one of the STAR WARS publishing universe's best authors, James Luceno's new book TARKIN is released next month in the UK, from CENTURY PUBLISHING: Star Wars: Tarkin: Amazon.co.uk: James Luceno: Books
