    Knights of the Old Republic will always be my favorite.

    The ones written by John Ostrander.
    So that's Agent Of The Empire, the Cade Skywalker run of Legacy, most of Star Wars: Republic, and the incomplete Dawn Of The Jedi series, I think.

    I am also more fond of the Tag & Bink comics than I probably should be.

    Star Wars Tales (an anthology series had had canon and non-canon stories from every corner of the franchise) and Knight Errant (a three-arc series about an Old Republic Jedi playing Batman while trapped in a Sith Empire) are my votes. Was never able to get into anything else.

    ^Those are the canon films.

    Out of all the original EU, I think Archie Goodwin and Al Williamson's comic strips-later reprinted as the first volume of Dark Horse's "Classic Star Wars"-kind of are underappreciated.

    They were less restrained than the Marvel line continuity wise, since they came out after Empire and told the story between the two films (Which is pretty much getting that treatment in Marvel's current series), such as Vader taking command of the Executor and the rebels forced to flee Yavin IV. It also reveals the thing about the Bounty Hunter on Ord Mantell and how the Rebels found and chose Hoth. Granted, there's some goofy stuff there such as Luke falling for an Obi-Wan imposter recruited by Vader....

    Although the comic ultiametly ends close to the start of EMPIRE with Vader deploying the probe droids, since the comics were coming out around the time of ROTJ they managed to get some ROTJ stuff in there as well-Jabba, The Emperor, and an Imperial shuttle make a cameo, and there's also a story arc about the Mon Calamari joining the rebels and helping with the evacuation of Yavin(Something that the Marvel series recently also covered, although in a different fashion).

    The Dark Times comic is some of my favorite SW ever. Obi-Wan and Anakin from Marvel is surprisingly decent and I really enjoyed the Clone Wars digest comics Slaves of the Republic, The Colossus of Destiny, Deadly Hands of Shon-Ju, The Starcrusher Trap, Shipyards of Doom, and Hero of the Confederacy.

    I loved Dark Times and that period right after the fall of the Jedi. This collection give you a good taste of what the galaxy was like with Vader hunting down the surviving Jedi. It give you a couple issues from the end of the Republic series, the Purge mini series and one shots, and the the first story arc from Dark Times. This is just Vader unleashed. The Dark Times series itself is also well worth a look.




    The story of a Jedi padawan framed for the murder of his classmates who has to go on the run to clear his name and find out why he was framed. A great series that ran for over 50 issues plus a follow up mini series.

    ^It's also a prequel of sorts to the game series, with one of the supporting characters turning out to be Darth Malak. (Revan also makes a few appearences, although his face is always covered of course). Saul, Carth and Mission also make a few appearences.
