Before the events of Star Wars: A New Hope, as the Death Star is readied for its first mission, a cabal of Grand Moffs and Imperial Officers embark on a dangerous mission to assassinate Emperor Palatine and Darth Vader and seize control of the Empire. When word reaches Vader that a Jedi has made an appearance on a backwater world, the cabal makes its move. Their plans are further complicated by the actions of the bounty hunter Boba Fett. And, of course, they may have underestimated the cunning of their primary target: Emperor Palatine. This is the first of a new line of graphic novels set during the early days of the Rebellion, when the Empire controlled the galaxy.

Star Wars Episode VI - The Return of the Jedi was a fitting climax to one of the truly great sci-fi cinema legends. As the credits rolled, the Empire was in ruins, Luke had led his father Darth Vader to redemption, and Leia and Han were reunited. Yet in the universe of Star Wars: Infinities, the smallest twist of fate can rewrite a saga! In Infinities - Return of the Jedi, all it takes is for C-3PO to lose his head! The result is that Han remains in the hands of Baba Fett, Luke is captured by the Emperor and the Rebel Alliance walks into a trap from which, this time, there is no escape! As thrilling as the movie, the seismic ripples reshaping this fantastic mythology lead to a shocking, epic conclusion worthy of the Star Wars legend!
