The Thrawn Trilogy is a comic book series consisting of Heir to the Empire, Dark Force Rising and The Last Command. They were adapted by Mike Baron and take place about five years after Star Wars: Episode VI Return of the Jedi.

The Thrawn Trilogy of novels by Timothy Zahn (Heir to the Empire, Dark Force Rising and The Last Command) is the official continuation of the original trilogy. It starts at 9 ABY and culminates at the Battle of Bilbringi. The series of eighteen comic books converts the book trilogy into a graphic form. That book series introduced many notable characters such as Mara Jade, one of the most popular Expanded Universe characters—still appearing in new books to this very day, and Grand Admiral Thrawn, one of the more notable Expanded Universe villains.

Each mini-series consisted of six issues that were later collected into a trade paperback form.
