Thanks for the info. I had the feling in the comic that some of the scenes may have been shortened due to space, but overall I enjoyed the story. I might pick up the book, though.The comic is mostly the same as the book. At least I can't think of any differences. Zahn's style is a bit down to the bown. He isn't great at detailing scenery, or even at lenghty internal dialogue, so what you have in the comic is pretty much what you'd get in the book.
This piques my interest as well. I'm assuming this is more of a "prequel" to the current or recently released Trilogy and NOT about his post Rebels adventures (which I'm very interested in).
