The second Death Star. We see various people dealing with it; we also see Vader dealing with his failure - and the haunting name spoken again Skywalker - as every one reminds him of it. Han and Chewie are in trouble and Luke and Leia clash. The situation of finding the new base is still compromised and things are looking worse. And they don't look to get better anytime soon, if ever. And people we know and care about are left in near impossible situations...with the next volume nowhere in sight.
These continue to be quite good and I can't wait to see where this all ends up.
