    1. Not happy with the way The Last Jedi ended for a few of your cherished icons? This collection of a trio of miniseries from the Dark Horse years could be the story for you!In this adaptation of Timothy Zahn's novels, read of the tales of the original triumvirate of Luke, Han, and Leia at the height of their powers after the decisive Battle of Endor. Read of how the newly restored new Republic was almost lost, when the most capable of the Empire's Grand Admirals returned from the unknown regions a [...]


    2. I don't think the Star Wars Universe would be what it is today without this book. Not only was it one of the first books in the Universe, it was really good. It opened the door to dozens and dozens of books and trilogies (not all good). It was rare that any universe book was as good as these were. So if you are thinking about joining the universe, start here.


    3. I remember reading these three novels ~1996-97, so these adaptations felt like a refresher course, and while the art was fun, definitely it was missing some of the depth the novels provided (and that I found myself remembering while I read.) Overall, it was a more satisfying experience than the novelization of The Force Awakens I read just before it -- but I'm not sure if that's just nostalgia and familiarity or what. I mean, definitely it has weird pieces, like the obsession everyone has with s [...]


    4. It's better as a complete story than as 3 separate chapters, but overall doesn't live up to the Star Wars name. Decent artwork to support the story, but it changes drastically between parts. Worthwhile for Star Wars fans. 3.5/5


    5. A bit of a history lesson here is necessary for the uninitiated. Odds are that there will be few (uninitiated) here, given that most drawn to this review will have working familiarity with the subject matter, but I'll supply a few details from memory anyhow. Call it posterity. Once the lights in the theatre went out on STAR WARS: EPISODE 6: RETURN OF THE JEDI, serious Star Wars enthusiasts had no idea when (or even if) they'd be treated to another adventure in their most favorite cinematic unive [...]


    6. 9 ABYThis graphic novel trilogy follows the same story as the three novels, but with a few things switched around a bit for the sake of visual flow. In short, Heir to the Empire introduces us to Grand Admiral Thrawn, who has seemingly taken the Emperor’s place, and some members of the New Republic have a hard time believing that there could possibly even be another Grand admiral that they did not know about. We are also introduced to Mara Jade, former Hand to the Emperor and a current second t [...]


    7. A great revisit I enjoyed the books and this was a stroll down Star Wars memory lane. The art work is fantastic and love the different choices the artists made from book to book. The storytelling is enjoyable and fast paced, maybe people a little to fast paced for fans who have not read the books.


    8. This 420-page hardcover volume is a collection of the 17 separate issues writer Mike Baron adapted from Zahn's best-selling trilogy. The dust jacket features artwork by Matthieu Lauffray, whose style is reminiscent of legendar illustrator Drew Struzan.The book contains, for the first time in one volume, Baron's adaptations of:Heir to the Empire: Five years after the destruction of the second Death Star and the deaths of Emperor Palpatine and Darth Vader, all's not going idyllically for the strug [...]


    9. Wow so this is really an epic undertaking and an important piece of Star Wars history. I think your enjoyment will revolve around what your expectations are going in. Unfortunately I can't say that The Thrawn Trilogy really works as an adaptation. I haven't read the novels but a lot of these comics feel like they're trying to rush through way too much plot in too short of time span. Grand Admiral Thrawn is an excellent villain and expert tactician but his strategies are largely undermined by his [...]


    10. Whether it be the actual novels or this, I'm just not impressed, whatsoever. There's even times from Heir to the Empire to Dark Force Rising that they change Luke's lightsaber blade color, simply because no one knew what Zahn had chosen, in that regard. A lot of it, I think, is to be blamed on Zahn. These adaptations are not great, but are at least shorter than the novels, praise Jesus. Thrawn is an underwhelming villain; I'll always stand by that. Even Luke is wasted, here! He's such a good cha [...]


    11. Been 25+ years since I read the trilogy and, quite frankly, I didn't remember much. Therefore most of this book was new to me. I liked how each third of the book had a different art style, which kept things interesting. The story is fairly complex so it was sometimes hard to follow in comic form, which is why I dinged it a star. Still, it's justified that the Thrawn trilogy is beloved even now that it's no longer canon. After all, Thrawn is such a great character he showed up in Star Wars: Rebel [...]


    12. Where the 2017 Thrawn novel is his origin story, this graphic novel version of the original 1990s novels is Grand Admiral Thrawn at the peak of his career. The story actually centers on Luke and Leia, with Thrawn lurking as a near omniscient arch villain. Leia is pregnant with twins, the Emperor is dead, and the Empire and the Rebellion are still duking it out for control of a galaxy far, far away. I read this on Kindle, which isn't my favorite format for graphic novels. That probably affected m [...]


    13. I would give 4 stars to the novel version of the "Thrawn Triology". The graphic novels however have some problems, mainly the story seems a bit rushed and becomes difficult to follow, hence the 2 stars.


    14. Highly RecommendedThe story had intriguing elements, but was rather confusing to follow. Also, we see too many bounty hunter betrayals that seem to be the mark of many thin Star Wars plot lines.



    15. majority of star war fans: the thrawn trilogy is so good ! Best legends book/arc!me: uhhhhhhhhhhHHHHHHHHHHHHH


    16. Having not read the novels, the story seemed a little spotty at points, but a fun read and the ending had some clever surprises.



    17. The Thrawn Trilogy consists of 3 novels: Heir to the Empire, Dark Force Rising, and The Last Command. The books tell a story that takes place in a galaxy far away, a long time ago. But it is not as long ago as the events of the 6 Star Wars movies. The story begins a few years after the the Rebel victory at the Battle of Endor at the conclusion of Return of the Jedi. Although the Endor conflict and its aftermath left the Empire weakened and resulted in the deaths of Emperor Palpatine and Darth Va [...]


    18. It's been a while since I last read the novel versions of this storyline and this was my first time reading the graphic novel versions so it was a nice refresher on the books with added visualization. However, they seemed to have trouble converting the dialogue to this medium.There are a couple instances where dialogue between characters is confusing, referencing things that are explained through exposition in the novels. One glaring example is near the end of the book. Luke thanks Mara for kill [...]


    19. Poseo esta colección en la edición por fascículos que empezó a publicarse en 1997, siendo uno de mis tesoros. Después de que Disney comprase LucasFilms y empezase a hacer planes de cara a unos episodios VII, VIII y IX oficiales, aun cobran mas valor.La adaptación de estas novelas, que de por si ya eran geniales, es impresionante. Presentan a varios personajes de gran carisma que nos han acompañado en múltiples entregas de juegos (Thrawn en TIE Fighter, Mara Jade en Mysteries of the Sith [...]


    20. Not a rating for the story itself, but rather for the adaptation. The Thrawn trilogy by Timothy Zahn is a classic of the Star Wars extended universe and most fans consider it the best of the best. It takes place 5 years after the end of the original trilogy and concerns Imperial Grand Admiral Thrawn's campaigns to destroy the Rebellion. It's incredible, if you haven't read the books and you like Star Wars, you need to read them.This comic adaptation is not the way to read those books. It falls i [...]


    21. I must say I am a huge Thrawn Trilogy fan.I just approve of all that Timothy Zahn has done for the Star Wars Expanded Universe. This was a special treat, to just peek at the graphic novels that are all bound together in one giant tome. The book carries all three parts of the trilogy but with large parts of the plot cut out. I can understand why, but after reading the source material, I feel like the graphic novel leaves out some important details. (I won't go into them here)I was very surprised, [...]


    22. Is an adaptation of a well-received Timothy Zahn's Thrawn trilogy novel. However, as I never read the novel before, I had a quite difficult time in digesting the story, mainly because it's a compressed version (or should I say, cut down version) of the novel, for example :- I got lost on a lot of dialogues involving character names and locations. Suddenly a lot of names pop-up.- In the Introduction, I think it's said that the dialogues are verbatim copy of the original novels, unaltered. Hence a [...]


    23. The overall story is good, and the comic adaptation does well to showcase awesome characters like Mara Jade and Thrawn, but a lot is lost in the translation from the books. Having been a while since I read the novels on which this was based, I had a hard time following large chucks of plot that seemed to go by in single panels or off screen. There is also way too much dialogue packed into every panel, sometimes laid out in ways that may look good visually on the page but are placed in ways that [...]


    24. I was excited to read this compilation in comic form. It's my first Star Wars book and Thrawn is recommended as the best. I don't think I'll read the novels. The art work was great and illustrated slightly different for each book. In the middle book Leia is very much pregnant with twins!! My favorite part is the visit to Kashyyyk, the Wookiee homeworld. Least favorite part was trying to keep up with all the bounty hunters and smugglers, it was a little hard to follow. If you are excited about wh [...]


    25. I liked the novels a lot so was happy to finally get a chance to read the comic adaptation. The results were a little off. I preferred the art used for the first two novels to that of the third, although the way the letter u was made in the first novel looked like an n and it drove me crazy for a while.But the final result still seemed a little off to me. The narrative of the story would just jump to something else without a very smooth transition, or no transition at all, making me feel as if i [...]


    26. (This is the first and only Star Wars EU work I have read.) Quite astounding really, how well Zahn and Baron manage to emulate Lucas, including the storylines' penchant for bringing all interested partners together at the same place by accident and the way the characters are drafted. The finale of the trilogy corresponds so well to the finale of "Return of the Jedi" without ripping it off, it's masterful. Add to this the exquisite panel layouts and art, especially of all the space stuff, and thi [...]


    27. You remember the books fondly, and since they'll never be filmed a graphic adaptation is the next best thing, right? And the adapter says all the right things in the introduction - including what I thought at the time to be a wonderful line about all the lines being pure Zahn. But when you read it, all the lines are Timothy Zahn, and only Timothy Zahn. No boxed captions, no exposition, no summaries or transitions. What seemed like benevolence and care on the part of a thoughtful adapter was actu [...]


    28. Having never read the novels Zahn published in the 90s, I couldn't help but feel like I was missing a lot of information as I plowed through this graphic novel adaptation. Don't get me wrong, it's a well-paced story, the characters are all interesting in specific ways, and the art is strong. Thrawn is a really intriguing villain, and I think he could rank up there with the most infamous in the Star Wars universe. Characters like Mara Jade and Talon Kardde only add to the intrigue. Overall, this [...]
