This particular Classic series were reformatted and colored reprints of the Star Wars daily newspaper strip by Archie Goodwin and Al Williamson from the early 1980s.
Williamson supplied new panels and art to flow the stories for traditional comic format.
Luke and Threepio are
trapped on Hoth with Frija
and her father, a former
Imperial governor - and
deserter. Luke and Frija cobble
together a working comunicator
to signal the Rebels, while Frija's
father escapes to attack Luke. Frija
saves Luke's life, but is accidentally
hit by one of her father's errant shots.
It's revealed that both Frija and her
father are droids, used as a decoys by the
real Imperial governor to lead the Rebels
astray. The Rebels decide that Hoth would
make a good base, and set out for the ice
planet, planning to enlist the Mon Calamari
to help evacuate Yavin Base. The Rebels discover
remnants of a battle it appears the Mon Calamari
lost. Several escape pods were launched prior to
the explosion of the Mon Calamari ship, the trail
leading to Daluuj. There, the Rebels run into Imperials
chasing the same distress beacon. Efforts to rescue the
stranded Calamarians are hampered by an attack from
giant sea worms, and our heroes have to abandon ship
in order to escape their wrath. While the Mon Calamari
continue their salvage attempts, Han, Luke and Chewie
attempt to hold off the approaching Imperial troops. Stumbling
about in the thick Daluuj fog, our heroes almost literally bump
right into the enemy!
