Hey everyone,

I've recently decided to give some of the numerous Star Wars comic lines a go having ended several other long runs and I thought I'd seek some advice regarding which series are any good and worth reading.

So, I'm reading Legacy by John Ostrander and am loving it. It's an excellent series that I wish had continued for longer but I'm not done yet though so I'll enjoy it while it lasts.

I tried reading Dark Empire and couldn't get past the awful dialogue so I won't be reading that. I'm also trying Rebellion, which seems ok but not great.

Other series I've heard are good include Tales of the Jedi and Knights of the Old Republic. Can anyone offer any advice on which other series are good and which ones should be avoided?

Cheers guys.

The Marvel stuff is good cheerful fun from a world where Jabba the Hutt is a walrus man and Luke's dad and Darth Vadar hang out together. If you enjoy the Budiansky TF stuff it's very much in the same vein.

Dark empire is more known for its moody and atmospheric artwork than its dialogue.

The tales of the Jedi books aren't too bad. Blends sci if and fantasy quite nicely as well as giving a appropriately archaic look to a star wars universe 2000 years ago. Unlike the old republic games. They are split into bite sized arcs so IMO are easier to follow.

Rebellion, empire etc are ok if you prefer a anthology of short stories.
