Default Star Wars Trades

I am loving everything Star Wars right now and I wanted to start picking up some older Star Wars comics. I don't usually like to buy trades but I think it will be cheaper and easier this way.

I am interested more in the Old Republic and Jedi stories from the past. ANy suggestions on trades? I know there is a Tales of the Jedi trade but what else would Star Wars fans suggest as a must have. That goes for all eras of Star Wars not just the old republic stuff.

We tend to get one of these threads every few weeks or so anymore.....
I preffer the Novels, but there is some realy good stuff in trade, Especially between Attack of the Clones and ROTS.

OK.

The BEST Old Republic Stuff:

Tales of the Jedi
Freedon Nadd Uprising
Dark Lords of the Sith

Redemption is good too if you can find it.

This pretty much chronicles Ulic's saga.

You can't go wrong w/ the first Kinghts of the Old Republic trade either. Fun stuff

Prequel / Clone Wars era:

Darth Maul
Outlander
Hunt for Aurra Sing
Rite of Passage
and ALL of the 10 Clone Wars trades...seriously, they're ALL great.
General Grevious

Darkness, Twlight and Stark Hyperspace War are decent too.

OT era:

Empire vol 2: Darklighter
Empire Vol 3: The Imperial Perspective ( Janek Sunbur is a GREAT character )
Empire VOl 6: In the Shadows of thier fathers
Empire VOl 7 ( MORE Janek Sunbur )

Boba Fett: Death Lies and Treachery

Post-Jedi:
Rouge Squadron is some of my favorite stuff, but the beststuff is all together in on volume right now. Rouge Squadron Omnibus Vol 3.

Dark Empire is Great
Dark Empire 2 is OK ( Empire's End Is Bantha Poo-Doo )

Union and Chewbacca are also good reads.

I pretty much concur with Felton's list.

Thanks for the suggestions! I just picked up the 9 Clone Wars Trades the other day. I can't wait to start reading them. Can't believe I spent that much money on trades either I also picked up Union because I am curious to learn a little about Luke's wife Mara.

I will look into some of the other trades as I find them. Thanks Again!

If you want to know more about Mara, she has a story of her own in trade paperback.

Mara Jade: By the Emporers Hand

It's OK IMO, takes place mostly between Jedi and the Thrawn Trilogy. It;s written by Mara's creator, Timothy Zahn.

If you want to get the best perspective of Mara and Luke's story, you HAVE to read the novels:

Thrawn Trilogy:
Heir to the Empire
Dark Force Rsing
Last COmmand

and Thrawn Duology:
Spectre of the Past
Vision of the Future

5 VERY good books, even great in the case of the Thrawn trilogy. All are availible in softcover too.

A cool set of books are the SW:Tales tpb's.
I have a few and there's some really cool one shot stories in there.
