Classic Marvel Star Wars. Sure it's bumped out of continuity, but that just means there is no need to read it in any order. It's just fun and cool artwork.


Except for how it hasn't, and remains a perfectly valid part of continuity.


Wrong.


There aren't any issues though. They all fit fine. Some are even referenced in later works. The Nagai-Tof War is all canon. The issues between Episode V and VI were refenced in the Essential Guide to Warfare and Legacy of the Force. And Luke using a lightsaber in post-TESB sources has been retconned. So has the Wedge/Hobbie issue.

I can't think of a single thing that has been fully removed from canon.

I do apologize though for being rude about it.

Pretty sure Taral is correct on this one.

It's fine TD. I admit that my reply was curt, but I don't think this is the place for a discussion on continuity.

I'll post a quick explanation for what I was thinking over in the appropriate thread, if you care to read it.

Thanks Walker. I saw the post in the continuity thread, and laid out my evidence.

Back to comics!

I'm looking forward to Star Wars Vol 3. The preorder codes for the first issue (slated for release in January 2013) just came out. I just bought my copy!

I'm going to be the voice of dissent. I would avoid Dark Empire, there are much better comics out there.

Some of my favorites are the Infinities retelling of the OT and the Tales comics. The current books have been really good as well, Agent of the Empire, Dawn of the Jedi, Blood Ties, Darth Maul, etc. The current books are also mostly shorter self contained story arcs so there is less of a "falling behind" or continuity issues.

I've gotta echo the previous post. The latest Vader and Maul arcs are where it's at. For a longer run, go with Legacy.
