I'm ashamed to say that the only Star Wars comic series I have read is Star Wars: The Clone Wars.

It is the tie in to the recent animated series. It's pretty good....

I remember reading the Dark Empire series when I was a kid and enjoyed it but I don't really know Star Wars comics in general. Here's a reference for you to look at different ones that might interest you: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Star_Wars_comic_books

I often feel like reading the Star Wars series, but feel overwhelmed just by looking at the sheer number of them.

Does someone have a chronology of 'essential' reading for the star wars ?

I really enjoyed Star Wars: Legacy and Star Wars: Legacy War, but had trouble staying interested in The Old Republic

This is my set of roughly chronological Star Wars reading lists. some of the issues are hard to pin down if they have multiple stories from different time periods.

I'm not masochistic enough to run through either of the time lines from dark horse or wikipedia (they aren't the same) and try to get them perfectly in order at the issue level.

I'm missing about 20 issues of Star Wars Empire apparently, but when I get them in, I'll post the updated version in the reading list forum.

my favourites are the Tales of the Jedi stuff from way back in the Old Republic
