No one really likes The Rebel Opposition. Stackpole was apparently angry at how Baron implemented his script - originally there were no Wookiees, Plourr was a Quarren, and I think Tycho wasn't supposed to pretend to be an Imperial while calling himself Tycho Celchu of Alderaan. And they got some details wrong, like the name of Tycho's fiance. So it's good that the series managed to continue and improve.
I'm considering posting from The Thrawn Trilogy comics, since one book is illustrated by Biukovic, but wow that thing is long. Maybe later.
