"The Defense of Kamino"
The events in this issue take place 22 years prior to Star Wars: A New Hope (two months after Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones).
*Two months after the Battle of Geonosis...with the forces of the Republic and the armies of the Confederacy of Independent Systems stalled in a series of indecisive battles, the Separatists risk a devastating strike at the heart of the Republic's war machine: they attack the cloning facility on Kamino! Their hope is to permanently destroy the Republic's ability to create new clones for its army. The Republic's defense rests on a squadron of Jedi Starfighters and a battalion of Jedi-led clone troopers within the facility itself. It's a battle fought on three fronts -- in space, on the ground, and underwater! A massive 64-page battle epic! *Source: darkhorse.com
