The comic, written by Greg Rucka and illustrated by Marco Checchetto, fills in the blanks in the immediate aftermath of the Battle of Endor from Return of the Jedi and features appearances by Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia Organa, Han Solo, Lando Calrissian, Chewbacca, R2-D2, and C-3PO. But the real protagonist of the miniseries is Lieutenant Shara Bey.
Shattered Empire opens with an alternate perspective of the Rebel Alliance attack on the second Death Star from Return of the Jedi, this from the POV of A-wing pilot Bey, a.k.a. Green Four.
After the space station goes down, Bey is reunited with her husband, Rebel ground forces Sergeant Kes Dameron.
Their reunion is trés passionate, but sadly short-lived, as they join Han Solo on a mission to take out the last entrenched Imperial base on the Ewok’s forest moon.
Of course, the surname Dameron is instantly recognizable to fans: Poe Dameron is the primo pilot played by Oscar Isaac in The Force Awakens, and some quick math makes it very plausible that he could be the fruit of the Damerons’ post-battle celebration.
