Luke tries to rebuild the Jedi Order and is less and less involved in the Rebellion, which becomes The New Republic.
Han and Leia are basically the leaders of the New Republic. Chewbacca still tags along and is like the family protector.
The initial threat right after ROTJ is the stragglers from The Empire reuniting under one incredibly smart and insightful general who names himself Grand Admiral. His battle tactics give The New Republic a lot of trouble. There's also a sideplot with Luke, an insane Dark Jedi clone and Mara Jade, who was previously like a half Dark Jedi/half spy under Palpatine.
There's some cool stuff where Luke is starting the new Jedi Academy and one of his pupils turns to the darkside.
There's a really weird book where Luke almost gets turned into a robot.
Later on, with the New Republic firmly in control of Coruscant and the galaxy, an outside threat emerges. A bunch of aliens who basically are immune to the force and have all this bio-technology that's really weird.
The best storyline by far, IMO, is still the Dark Empire comics. The stuff with the reborn Emperor and Luke turning to the darkside, only to have his sister save him, is awesome shit.
Some of the later books are about Han and Leia's kids becoming Jedi. One of them goes bad.
