Marvel's Star Wars catalogue grows this week with the addition of a new ongoing Princess Leia title! Writer Mark Waid (Daredevil) and artist Terry Dodson (Uncanny X-Men) join forces to tell a new story set in between A New Hope and The Empire Strikes Back!
When Princess Leia Organa was captured by the Empire as a Rebel spy, she never betrayed her convictions, even in the face of the complete destruction of her home world, Alderaan. When her rescue came, she grabbed a blaster and joined the fight, escaping back to the Rebel Alliance and helping strike the biggest blow against the Empire—the destruction of the Death Star. But in the aftermath of that victory, the question remains...what is a princess without a world?
