    Apparently, many of the Star Wars EU novels are going to be made available in electronic book format for Kindles and Nooks.

    If they were still making Star Wars: X-wing books, I might be interested in this.

    Coruscant gets sacked so often, they should change its name to Quarterback.

    I've read The Phantom Affair and Battleground: Tattooine. They were pretty good; I want to pick up the rest of the X-wing graphic novels/comics.

    I believe there are two omnibus volumes of the X-Wing comic series that contain the entire comics run.

    Courscant seems to get sacked every few years in the novels. You'd think by now the New Republic/Galactic Alliance would have mustered better defenses. I do have a question since I've not been reading the most recent novel series (gave up on it after the first book) have we had a recent count about how many Jedi there are in the New Order?

    The remaining X-wing TPBs are among the best Star Wars comic works-and they really start to introduce characters who are important to later novels and comics after the Tatooine arc.

    Another thing that seems to happen a lot is the Jedi getting wiped out (with some exceptions), before and after the events of the films. Kind of ruins the impact of the films that way. You'd think the book/game/comic writers would think of something a bit more original. Even the NJO, which had a weird alien enemy and new force philosophies, fell back on the same old tropes.
