This is the thread for recommending or asking for opinions about Legends (i.e. old EU) material, primarily focused on the books & comics.
Please keep it to the point. If you don’t recommend a book or comic (i.e. if you dislike it), then explain why, as opposed to just saying “it was crap”, or something similar without any substance.
PT-era, and other non-OT related EU novels/comics, can, contrary to the original post, be discussed now.
Original post (Dec. 2016):
I couldn’t find any older threads about this, so I figured I’d make one.
I’m personally looking for any good pre-PT Legends novels, comics too, but mostly novels. I’ve already read the Thrawn trilogy, which I really enjoyed. I’m currently reading the Hand of Thrawn duology, which isn’t as interesting, but entertaining enough to pass the time for me. However, I feel like those are somewhat of an obvious starting point, and I have no intentions to buy a lot of books just to find out that they’re really bad (and from what I’ve gathered, there is plenty of those). I also live in Norway so these kinds of books aren’t exactly cheap (only one store that sells them in English, or at all for that matter), and second-hand isn’t really an option either, so I’d like to at least have some general idea if a novel is worth a damn before I buy it.
The only novels I own so far is the Thrawn trilogy, the Hand of Thrawn duology, Shadows of the Empire, the Han Solo adventures (I’ve finished the first one), and Splinter of the Minds Eye (which I haven’t read yet).
