Part of Dark Horse's Trade Paperback program, the Omnibus offers a book that collects stories of a particular era in chronological order. While slightly smaller than regular TPB's and the issues that they come from, these volumes feature new introductions, reproductions of the covers and occasionally, editorial corrections.
The Old Republic Era which features the adventures of the Knights of the Old Republic and occurs over 1,000 years prior to the battle of Yavin, contains two Omnibuses which collect the Tales of the Jedi series including ?The Golden Age of the Sith,? ?The Fall of the Sith Empire,? ?Knights of the Old Republic? (the original 5-issue mini series), "The Freedon Nadd Uprising," "Dark Lords of the Sith," "The Sith War," and "Redemption."
