The Han Solo Trilogy by Crispin is great.
Agreed. I love how perfectly she integrated the Brian Daley Han Solo books and the L. Neil smith Lando Calrissian books into her story.

BTW, Drago-Kazov, my old Marvel Star Wars comics are in a box at my parents house, but I'm going to guess that your avatar comes from Marvel's issue 21 or 22.

I love the smell of comics killing off Han in the morning.

Oh, so close! But still part of the original "Wheel" story written by the late, great Archie Goodwin.

Re: New "Star Wars" comic set between ANH and TESB

Two issues into this, and it is already one of my favorite comics. This is the Star Wars comic I've wanted Dark Horse to do for over 20 years. Brian Wood has a good feel for the characters voices and I'm intrigued by the concept of Leia forming a secret X-Wing squad.

Re: New "Star Wars" comic set between ANH and TESB

I absolutely loved issue one, and got issue two today but haven't read it yet. Probably my favourite SW comic since "Legacy".

It's about a timeframe that's already been documented with people we've spent too much time with already.

I've been rereading the Marvel Comics set in the post-ANH/pre-ESB era. Just great stuff fully representative of the swashbuckling fun of the first movie. Of course that's all they had when they wrote those books.
Well said. It was a raw, unexplored period before the hardline framework of TESB set the Marvel series on one course.

At the same time, I enjoyed unrelated stories set in the same period, like Splinter of the Mind's Eye,

Speak for yourself. There are quite a few readers (like myself) who haven't had much (if any) exposure to the Rebellion era outside of the films. I've read more about Cade Skywalker than Luke Skywalker.

It features the ANH cast in the days following the Battle of Yavin. The rebels are searching for a new location for their base, but the Empire seems to always be one step ahead of them at every location that they scout.

Mon Mothma realizes that there is a spy inside of the Alliance, and she authorizes Leia to form a secret X-Wing squadron, including Luke and Wedge Antilles, outside of the chain of command with a two-fold mission: ferret out the spy and find a new base.

Meanwhile, Han and Chewie on on a mission of their own to Coruscant, while being tracked by Slave One.

On the Imperial side of the coin, Palpatine, as punishment for losing the Death Star, has relieved Vader of command of his Star Destroyer and replaced him with an ambitious new officer, who I image isn't long for this world.

In that case, you owe it to yourself to pick up the A Long Time Ago omnibuses of the Marvel comics that Dark Horse put out a few years ago.
