Are there any novels/comics exclusively devoted, or almost exclusively devoted, to Princess Leia (I don't mind what time period, before, during or after the original trilogy)?

Looking for recommendations, please.

Star Wars: Princess Leia is a five-issue limited series published by Marvel with Mark Waid as writer and Terry Dodson as artist.Think it was collected into a trade paperback. Storyline is after events of the 1977 film Star Wars. Received generally positive reviews tho' I never read it myself.

-C!

My son got the TPB, so I gave it a read.

It starts right as the medals ceremony is ending.

Has a nice little childhood flashback within.

I'd say it's worth the read.

Thanks, guys. I fancy something different and am looking for a STAR WARS title to read so I'll look at getting that.

I listened to the audiobook of Star Wars: Bloodline a couple winters back and really enjoyed it.

It's the story of what happened when the public found out who Leia's father was, and some other fun stuff.

The Claudia Gray novels are excellent. The aforementioned Bloodline is pretty close to TFA, just before Ben goes nuts (although the novel does not deal with that) and then there is Leia, Princess of Alderaan which is set about three years before Star Wars, also an excellent novel with an incredible last line

Of the "New Canon" novels, I think Moving Target is the best.

I remember enjoying this issue of Marvel's Star Wars...



Which was followed up by an issue with an interesting title...

Those covers bring back some memories, Brian!

STAR WARS stories drawn by Carmine Infantino and Walt Simonson. We had it good back then.
