Biggs Darklighter isn¿t a very well known character. Rogue 3 in A New Hope, we know he was Luke¿s friend from Tatoonie that gave his life protecting Luke during the Battle of Yavin. This graphic novel, which collects Star Wars: Empire, issues #8-12 + #15, gives us Bigg¿s background, motives, and an in depth look at a fascinating man. This graphic chronicles Biggs from the time he was a youth on Tatoonie, until the fateful Battle of Yavin, with many interesting notes in between. Nor is this simply the tale of Biggs Darklighter. Luke Skywalker and ¿Hobbie¿ Klivian both have prominent roles. There is also a small series called ¿The Short, Happy Life of Roons Sewell¿. Originally printed as Empire #10-11, it is composed of Roons Swell¿s eulogy, delivered by General Dodonna. Though this eulogy and a series of flashbacks, we see Roons Sewell¿s path to becoming a hero of the Alliance, a haunting, interesting tale. Both these men had different lives, and took very different paths to becoming martyrs for the Alliance. Both men were brave and became icons of heroism. The writing is flawless, the art is bold, and the story haunting. Highly recommended.
