Retro Dark Horse: Rebel Heist #1 Phoenix Comicon Exclusive

Dark Horse spent years expanding the Star Wars universe beyond the era of the original movies and when they did publish comics in the time period of the movies, they used the main heroes of Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia, Han Solo, and Chewbacca sparingly for most of their 22+ years of publishing Star Wars comics.  In 2013 that changed when Dark Horse began publishing their second comic titled Star Wars which focused on the main characters between A New Hope and The Empire Strikes Back.  In 2014, a 4-part mini-series titled Star Wars: Rebel Heist was published.  Written by Matt Kindt, best known for creating Mind Mgmt published by Dark Horse, each issue of Rebel Heist tells a story of one of the main Star Wars heroes from the point of view of a Rebel recruit.  Star Wars: Rebel Heist #1 focuses on Han Solo.
