Firefly wasn't Buffy and The Avengers wasn't Firefly but he still made them fucking awesome.

That last one was Dark Empire, a comic written by Kevin J. Untermensch.

As for the stuff after Episode VI, depends on what you're talking about. I'm not sure about "Immediately after", as I've only read The Truce at Bakura and Luke Skywalker and the Shadows of Mindor, and both were decent enough.

After that, it becomes really hit and miss. Kevin J. Anderson is responsible for a lot of misery, but there were some other contributors. Just stick to some authors like Timothy Zahn or Stackpole, and you'll do alright.
And avoid the Yuuzan Vong war.

If you want, I could lend you some books once Pheonix is done reading them.

Maybe Timothy Zahn to write and Joss Wheadon to direct? (I know both are highly unlikely but still would be an awesome combination.)

That would be the preferred option.

Wow... that's nice. I suppose he can still live pretty well with that remaining 50 million, though xD

Chainsawsuit said it pretty well: you can never make fun of George Lucas again for being a money grubbing asshole

"didnít like jar jar? i gave $4 billion to schools

crystal skull should have used darabontís script? i gave $4 billion to schools

why wonít you release the unedited original trilogy on blu-ray? i taught your child how to read"

Wonder if they're going to revamp the EU. Are there any ongoing series right now, like the Yuuzan Vong war?
