Its about the X wing squad led by Wedge Antilles :)

Best bet is to go in chronological order.

Must reads are the Thrawn trilogy which takes place 5 years after return of the jedi!

Pick up Truce at Bakura! that take splace imediatly after the final battle pretty much

I have orderd the comic Clone Wars about Kamino or something similar. I don't know how it is called in America cause I have orderd another language.

Um, I think that's what this forum is about @ topic :p

I have a huge library of EU books and comics. I used to have pics, but they were outdated. My favorite is the Crimson Empire. Notihng like the last Royal Guardsmen duking it out.

And the NJO is my favorite EU series, then the Thrawn books.

I want to get the new ones, but I don't like those paper thin books. I wait for the Trade Paperbacks.

I have a huge collection of both comics and Graphic Novels. My favourite comics are the Star Wars Republic comics, in particular, the ones featuring Quinlan Vos and Aayla Secura. I'm not really into the books, although I have read The Thrawn Trilogy.

i like some of it, but there is as many bad star wars books as good ones.
a few of them i really enjoyed, like the thrawn trilogy and duology, shadow hunter, cloak of deception.

i don't like the NJO as IMO it's gone in a star trek direction which isn't my bag.

of course EU isn't just books and comics. but also computer games, like kotor and the jediknight series. also the clone wars cartoon is considered EU.

Everything that isn't the films is EU, including The Clone War's comics.

leXX is right, the movies are canon, and anything not movies is Expanded, hence, Expanded Universe.

But I do wonder about the Clone War microseries. Lucas wanted it made...

The Star Wars: Republic comic series covers the Clone Wars, and they are extremely well done.
