From School Library Journal
Adult/High School-Remaining faithful to the themes and sensibilities of classic Star Wars, this episode pits good against evil in the persons of a Luke so young that he is not in full possession of the discipline he needs to effect the ends he believes to be right and Darth Vader's forces of trickery and destruction. Princess Leia is kidnapped and Luke is desperate to find the truth of her fate, but Artoo has been put out of commission and that, too, requires more focused attention than the young hero can muster. He conflicts with Han over the proper approach to resolving these emotional and ethical issues but, eventually, learns to gain control of himself before taking on the dark forces. The beautiful coloring of these action-packed panels gives a cinematic fullness to the page, and the pacing carries the story forward with smooth speed. This is an excellent addition to science-fiction collections, as well as to graphic novel offerings.

So, an interesting concept come to life, this story basically crams three movies worth into one TPB. It shows how the story can radically change with the alteration of one event and does a decent job at telling the story. The tale seems a bit rushed at points due to a page constraint obviously but conveys it's meaning well. The art is well done and the writing is notably well done. Seeing Yoda in action during the Original Trilogy was a treat as was seeing Leia as a Sith apprentice. It's worth picking up if you want an interesting read and find it at a cheap price.
In this case the torpedo Luke used against the Death Star malfunctioned and failed to destroy the station. From there things take a sharp turn for the worse for the rebellion with Luke beginning his Jedi training with Yoda much sooner than before.
Overall the storyline is interesting and the art is well done. The only real flaw with the story is that it feels a tad rushed and could have benefited from having more time to flesh out this alternate storyline.
If you are a Star Wars fan, it is a interesting read. I enjoyed it, but i was done in minutes.
