^True for some parts of the EU, not true for others; it varies, really.

I love most of the Marvel Comics, especially the Baron Tagge/"The Wheel" issues, and as my user-name implies, I don't care if they're considered below the "C-Canon" that most EU work falls under. In my mind, the Prequels are beneath "Non-Canon" since they completely ruin my interpretation and enjoyment of the Original Star Wars films and work.
As weird or different as Marvel's Star Wars comics got, they never got as "non-canon" as the Prequels did.
Agree with you 100% there. Except for the post-ROTJ stories - which were often hit-or-miss and, unfortunately IMHO, depicted the entire Empire as basically defeated following the film - I love the Marvel comics, love the pure funness and spirit of adventure inherent in those stories, and consider almost all of the entire run firmly part of my personal canon.
