Re: I thought they said the JJ-comics were canon?

Star Wars canon is a muddled mess because of the prequels and Clone Wars. It doesn't help that Lucas took some things introduced in the EU, like Coruscant and Kashykk while blatantly contradicting other things.
Really? How many books re complelty noncanon because of what happened post 99?
Just off the top of my head, there was a bit of a controversy a few years back when Clone Wars completely ignored everything about the Mandalorians established in the EU.

The Traviss RC books were bad minus the first one but it was reconciled. I don't mind Traviss leaving despite the fact that she could forget about her mando worship for some books.

It doesn't really matter. Thanks to JJ Abrams, Bad robot, and Disney, Star Wars VII will probably erase 95% of the post-Jedi EU within the opening sequence (unless there is a tme-traveling Romulan that kills Padme and Anakin after the twins are born or something and thereby erases 150%).
They said that about the prequels too.
