    There are anthology books from canon I can recommend:
    • Journey to Star Wars: The Last Jedi Canto Bight- basically like Tales from the Cantina
    • From a Certain Point of View- key events in the Saga through the eyes of minor characters
    • Journey to Star Wars: The Last Jedi: The Legends of Luke Skywalker- a book detailing Luke's wanderings throughout the galaxy
    • Star Wars: Myths and Fables- self explanatory, key events and encounters written in the style of folk takes and stories
    • Star Wars the Force Awakens: Tales from a Galaxy Far, Far Away v1 Aliens- been a while since I last read this so I cannot immediately recall its quality

    I recall there being a graphic novel about the bounty hunter Aurra Sing that I enjoyed so I think I will go with that.

    Good taste.

    What about Republic Commando? That was pretty wizard.

    Same! I love that book. I also REALLY like the Thrawn trilogy.

    A friend and I decided to read the EU recently. We are doing every book, together. We started off with the Thrawn trilogy and are on book 2. So much goodness that I had forgotten.

    I haven't taken much notice of the EU but I did love this, an amazing story with our OT heroes, set between TESB and ROTJ.

    Book, comic and of course game.

    Off the top of my head...
    Favorite book: Probably Heir to the Empire. (although Darth Bane: Path of Destruction and Darth Plageus were really good too)

    Favorite Comic: I have a soft spot for Dark Empire, since I read it when I was a kid. I also loved the Star Wars Tales series by Dark Horse.

    Favorite Game: (#1) Kotor 1+2 for best plot, characters, world-building, and player choice. (#2) Jedi Knight series for best gameplay and adaptation of post-Endor era in a video game. (#3) Battlefront 2 2005 for the best boots-on-the-ground star wars experience. (#4) Jedi: Fallen Order also did a great job introducing a Dark Souls-style combat system to the star wars universe (whoops! I just remembered that Fallen Order and Battlefront 2 are canon, oh well...). (#5) Star Wars republic commando for excellent squad-based combat. (#6) Star Wars Galactic Battlegrounds for giving us a star wars RTS from the creators of age of empires 2 (need I say more?!) (#7) Star Wars: Empire at War FOC for best space RTS.

    My new favorite comic is Heir to the Empire which skyrocketed in value after Thrawn was mentioned in Mandalorian

    Too many books in the series for me, I'm afraid. I read so Whills darned slowly that it would take me a decade to get through the first 12 :oops: But I'll take your word for it :D
