We begin a new series of updates to our Comic Book
section today with the Crimson Empire
series by Dark Horse Comics. Originally published in 1997, this 6-issue limited series takes a look under the helmet and robes of the mysterious Emperor's Royal Guard and became a cornerstone of the Expanded Universe. A second 6-issue limited series, Crimson Empire II: Council of Blood
, soon followed, which continued the story of Kir Kanos, but also set the stage for the New Jedi Order
series of novels. Each cover is presented, alongside the collected editions, spin-off titles, and the exclusive #0 story.
