I accidently read a spoiler for Star Wars 7 on youtube, cause sometimes spoiler spreading asswipes are so catious that you don't understand it was a spoiler untill the end of the sentence... Thankfully the spoiler was too obvious.

This unrelated to the movies but I'm trying to get more acquainted with the expanded universe and figure the comics are the best place to do that. I've heard Legacy series is a good place to start. Anyone have recommendations?

Legacy/Expanded Universe is no longer consider canon, Star Wars: aftermath is a decent read but if you do want to follow the Expanded Universe I suggest the Thrawn trilogy, very good books and well written.

Yeah I know they're no longer canon and I was looking more for graphic novels and comics. Already have a shit ton of "actual" reading to do.

I've read the Omnibus collection which was very good.

Then yes, The Thrawn's Trilogy is a very good series, three sets of books, very nicely done. I also recommend the Dark Empire, I have enjoyed its stories.

The New Jedi Order series is one of the better known. I read the first two and enjoyed em.

Because that's the whole point of his character. He's a fucking pussy who is unworthy of the dark side. He's a bad sith, and this is part of his character. He's morally and emotionally conflicted because he's fighting his own parents.

I don't really understand how people don't get this. Is this just a European problem? Yall are some goddamn sperglords.
