10.75x16.25" artboard w/original art by Jan Duursema, a comics artist best known for her work on the Marvel and Dark Horse Star Wars comic book franchise.

Page features five panels, showing the Rebel Alliance on the forest moon of Endor after the destruction of the Death Star at the end of "Return Of The Jedi," w/Admiral Ackbar overseeing an Alliance meeting discussing reports from different worlds indicate that there may still be well-organized Imperial forces in the galaxy. Ackbar approves a reconnaissance force including Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia, Lando Calrissian, Han Solo, Chewbacca, who can be seen (the last three being seen from the back) heading towards the Millennium Falcon in the second panel. Second to last panel shows Luke and Leia talking w/Ewoks running about the tall trees, w/Luke revealing he's been having nightmares "About Our Father" to which Leia replies "Darth Vader" in last panel.
