Then, in 1992, science fiction novelist Timothy Zahn's new trilogy of Star Wars tales began, and it reminded Star Wars fans everywhere of the latent potential still lingering like a welcome disturbance in the Force in that galaxy far, far away. Over the course of the next few years, Zahn did as Lucas had done with the original trilogy, amping up the stakes just a little bit at each crazy turn, whetting fandom's appetite for even more visits to these distant worlds ... and the good folks at Dark Horse Comics were all too happy to oblige. Eventually, Dark Horse stumbled onto the brilliant idea to adapt Zahn's books; these novels had, after all, earned a special place in the hearts of most Star Wars fans, so much so that most consider these outings as unofficial Episodes 7, 8, and 9, picking up the events of Luke & company nearly a decade after JEDI ended.Read more ›
During this time, the forefront of the Star Wars continuity was the Expanded Universe(EU). The EU was all we really had, and if it wasn't for the EU the prequel trilogy, and all of its spinoffs and merchandise, would not exist to this day. If there are two things that really launched the EU and created a new generation of fans at the time, they would have to be the DARK EMPIRE series by Dark Horse Comics, and the Thrawn Trilogy written by Timothy Zahn.
Not long after Dark Horse started making comics, and the Thrawn Trilogy was written, these two juggernauts of EU awesomeness married to give us a comic book series based upon the Thrawn Trilogy. Originally released as single issue comics, available at stores, recently these comics have been compiled to a collection or graphic novel. This was music to my ears,bceause I was never able to track down all the comics when they originally came out.
Enough with the history lesson. This Collection is an excellent buy. For one, it is hardcover and for the price I bought it on Amazon, it was $20 under the suggested retail price. Secondly, it is thick (it has all three stories).Read more ›
The Thrawn Trilogy hardcover edition is a must-have for all die-hard Star Wars fans out there. Ever since Timothy Zahn released his 3 novels 20 years ago, starting with Heir To The Empire, readers have always wonder what ysalamiri or an Interdictor cruiser would look like. Now we know. The comics writers have edited out, but also retained quite a lot of the nuances and verbal speech that the characters use. I guess something will definitely be lost in translation, otherwise this comic adaptation would be more than 800 pages! Timothy Zahn did a remarkable job bringing each and every character back to life, which kick-started the novel/comics franchise of the Star Wars Expanded Universe.
Next up, I'm looking to purchase the Dark Empire complete collection. I'm like all die-hard Star Wars fans out there. The books just can't satisfy the thirst for more action, adventure and stories from this amazing series.
May the Force be with us all!

It's good but I preferred the regular books over the graphic novel. There's a lot of details and character development that are lost in this version. It's still worth reading. Read morePublished 23 hours ago by sdm

First series of books that created something after episode 6, a great story, created by a person who loved star wars and backed up by George Lucas and LucasFilms. Read morePublished 6 months ago by Roberto Moscoso
Bought this thinking it was the books. Turns out it is a comic book. The art is dreadful, and it skips too much of the story. Would not read again.Published 6 months ago by Amazon Customer
