I just stumbled across this section.  Unbelievable resource.   I have been on and off with the comics,  but this is a great section if you have to look up something in a hurry.  Good Job Wedge and Brianakarobin!!!  :rockon:

Thanks! Feel free to add any reviews or comments you might have!
I have every intention of adding plot summaries, etc, but it's just so hard to find the right amount of time to write up something meaningful!

Essentially all credit for the comics timeline goes to Wedge.  Other than the format, I have little to do with it.  But keep posting :)`

It appears I am soon due for another update to the timeline.
Man, one year flies past like nothing these days! I feel old  :(

Yeah, for sure!  I am re-reading Crimson Empire I and II now, as I will be reading Crimson Empire III.  I may write summaries (if they aren't already done) when I am finished.

Summaries would be great! As you know, they're the most time-consuming part of creating new entries. I really gotta force myself to do 1 or 2 a week or something. I might catch up on them all by the time the new trilogy comes out! ;-)

And so another year has come and gone, and I'm now another year behind in updating the comics timeline  :-[

I was just skimming through some research material for an update, and was blown away by the number of Omnibus volumes that Dark Horse is pushing out now! If anyone has been thinking of digging in to all the awesome Star Wars comics series from the past couple decades, now is an excellent time to get into them. It seems like DH is intent on collecting every possible issue from SW comics history and republishing in the Omnibus line. Maybe they're trying to get it all out before Disney decides to take the license away. Anyways, it's a great, affordable way to own these stories - even cheaper if you can get 50% off like TFAW.com's so-called "nick & dents". And if you like having a nice, consistent line of books on your shelf, these are perfect for that too. I wish I had known so many of these were going to be released, I would have held back on buying the initial TPB's.

Well, it's as many of us suspected - Marvel is taking Star Wars comics back over in 2015:
http://starwars.com/news/lucasfilm-and-marvel-join-forces-to-publish-star-wars-comics-and-graphic-novels.html

That explains Dark Horse's big push to get all their back-catalog into omnibus volumes.

It's really too bad for DH, they have done some amazing things over the years and in many respects were what kept Star Wars going through the doldrums of the 90s. Best wishes to them and their creative teams, and hopefully Marvel/Disney treats the material well (though I have some doubts).

I liked the DH comics and thought they did a good job. I am not sure if Marvel will be as good. Time will tell.

Yeah, I am a bit leery.  Star Wars is not "Super Hero" stuff.  Marvel have created some great characters, but we don't need that - we have great characters, we need great stories for them, and DH was doing that.  Hopefully the Marvel Team can carry the torch.

OK, so I'm a professed hater of the EU but I did collect all of the Legacy graphic novels.  And I secretly loved them. 


Anyway flash forward to 2017.  Been reading Darth Vader's comic.  (Hard Cover Vol 1 cause I'm a snob) It's very good.  Not to delve too deep into spoilers, but he does some fine butt kicking.
