In the mid-90s, Lucasfilm decided to fill in the Star Wars gap between episodes 5 and 6 with Shadows of the Empire.
There was a game, a book, a soundtrack, a junior novelization… pretty much everything except a movie.
There was even a comic book! And we read it! All 6 issues!

A long time ago in a continuity far, far away… Dark Horse Comics made a TON of Star Wars comics, more than 500 of ’em. And they kicked the whole thing off with Dark Empire, a story where Luke turns to the Dark Side.

Marvel owns the rights to all these comics now, what with Disney owning everything in the world these days, so if you’d like to read them just head on over to Marvel Unlimited.
