This story starts with anakin skywalker and continues with luke skywalker. Sometimes telling people your first name is a good thing. Great graphics and strong betrayals. Good read, just wish the flow was better of the EMPIRE series.

The sixth graphic novel collection of the Star Wars Empire comic series collects issues 29-34 and is titled In the Shadows of their Fathers. Issue 31 was a standalone story and is presented first in this book; we then roll into the main event with the tale of the Rebels' attempt to sway the planet of Jabiim to their cause. Some readers may recall the planet of Jabiim from the Republic series dealing with the Clone Wars (the original Jabiim arc can be found in the graphic novel Clone Wars Volume Three: Last Stand on Jabiim).

The standalone story that kicks off this book tells the story of Darth Vader "negotiating" a business deal on the planet of Tiss'sharl. The reptilian inhabitants reminded me of the Ssi-ruuk, the race encountered in Kathy Tyers' Truce at Bakura. I believe this was a wholly separate planet and race (since the Ssi-ruuk were from beyond the known galaxy), but I confess, my Expanded Universe knowledge may have a gap here and perhaps we've seen these guys before. Anyway, we get a glimpse at the weight the Empire brings to bear on systems under its thumb and we see the potential hazards in daring to meet with a representative of the Rebellion.

The remainder of the book deals with Luke and Leia's visit to Jabiim. If you've read the Clone Wars Jabiim arc, you know that Anakin Skywalker left the inhabitants who had remained loyal to the Republic in a horrible position. The potential for a story where Luke visits the planet unaware of the sins of his father is strong, but I found this story to be rather predictable. The issues telling Anakin's story were a gripping, extremely well-drawn look at the horrors and chaos of war. I guessed going in that the locals would be pre-disposed against Luke but that he would win their trust in the end.
