Star Wars: The Thrawn Trilogy

Ever since the news broke that Grand Admiral Thrawn would have a big part to play in Star Wars Rebels: Season 3, I have been itching to revisit Timothy Zahn's epic Trilogy. The only problem is that these are 3 massive and long reads and there was no way I would be able to read all of them before tomorrows Season Premiere. The next best thing would be to hit the Graphic Novels in it's place. I've owned the first installment (Heir To The Empire), which is clearly the best of the 3 for a few reasons. For starters, it reads incredible well. It's concise and has pretty much all the most important stuff needed in its adaptation. But the standout for me is the artwork by Olivier Vatine. His artwork has aged extremely well over the years and I just wished that he had done the art chores for all 3. Dark Force Rising is drawn by Terry Dodson, who is amazing artist himself. When a publisher can't afford Adam Hughes, you call Terry to step in. The Last Command is drawn by Edvin Biukovic, who I've never heard of before or since his part was completed. Overall, the book is a solid read, but parts 2 and 3 seemed rushed because there was a lot of important stuff that was left out during the adaptation. I'd still recommend this for sure. Check it out.
