While Dark Horse was enjoying much success with their line of Star Wars comic books, the majority of the stories in 2002 focused on the prequel trilogy. Fans were in dire need of some new tales featuring those classic trilogy characters, and Dark Horse delivered with a new monthly series called Star Wars: Empire.

The initial storyline featured a secret plot to assassinate Emperor Palpatine and Darth Vader, which lead to an all-out war with high-ranking Imperial Officers. Subsequent storylines featured Princess Leia, Boba Fett, Biggs Darklighter, and a lone Stormtrooper aboard the first Death Star. With planned stories told from an Imperial viewpoint, this series truly has given the fans what they were missing.
