Overview

Take the events and characters from one of the classic Star Wars films, throw in one happenstance, mishap, or technical glitch beyond the characters' control, and watch how that changes everything. In Dark Horse's first foray into Infinities (A New Hope), Luke Skywalker's valiant torpedo attack on the Death Star failed due to a faulty detonator — an event no one could have foreseen — and the Rebellion was dealt a debilitating setback. In Infinities — The Empire Strikes Back, Han Solo's desperate attempt to locate his friend Luke in the icy wastes of the planet Hoth is thwarted when the tauntaun he's riding succumbs to the cold while Han is still a mile from Luke's location. Han arrives too late, barely in time to hear Luke's dying words about Jedi training and the planet Dagobah...

Thus begins an adventure far different than the one seen in the motion picture. Along the way, a famous bounty hunter is frozen in carbonite, Han and Chewie are captured on Tatooine by Jabba the Hutt, and Princess Leia and Yoda have a fateful jungle showdown with Darth Vader! Collecting the four-issue miniseries.

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Adult/High School-"A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away," Han Solo saved Luke Skywalker from freezing to death on the ice planet Hoth. As we all know, Luke went on to become a Jedi Knight and played an instrumental part in saving the universe. But what if Luke died on Hoth? What would have happened then? In this case, Luke's sister Leia steps in to train with Yoda. And that's only one of the changes. Although based on the classic movies, Infinities also references the new prequels. The art is faithful to the movie in both characters and setting. It's also well done and appealing. Fans will probably be thrilled to learn that they get to see under Boba Fett's helmet. A fun, creative "what if?" romp for anyone familiar with the original-and who isn't?-Susan Salpini, Fairfax County Public Schools, VA Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
