Review: Star Wars: Crimson Empire III: Empire Lost

*This is a sponsored post. All opinions are 100% mine.

The third and final part of the Crimson Empire series was planned to be released in 2001, but was eventually cancelled. In 2008, Michael Richardson announced that he was working on the Crimson Empire III. In October 2011, Dark Horse Comics released the first of the six issues, with the last was released back in April. Courtesy of NetGalley and Dark Horse Comics, I got a chance to review the upcoming complete final volume of the Crimson Empire legacy, containing all six issues.

Kir Kanos, a former Imperial Guardsman to the late Emperor Palapatine, returns to bounty hunting after three years of hiding, when he is asked to join a group of other Imperial Guardsmen, whom want to restore the Empire.

Meanwhile, Princess Leia's New Republic is expanding, but a new threat is emerging from out of the darkness. Mirith Sinn is the Chief of Security of the New Republic, and an on and off again love interest of Kir Kanos, who must deal with new threat - the Imperial assassins.

Learning of the new Imperial group's plans of assassinating Princess Leia, Kir Kanos decides to make a stand and fight against the returning Empire.

I have never read the first or second Crimson Empire, but I easily figured out what was going on in the third. Kir Kanos is and interesting antihero, who once was the enemy of the Republic, but now maybe their only chance of survival. Crimson Empire is darker than the other Star Wars graphic novels that I have reviewed this year and it is better written with incredible artwork to go along with it. This a must have for Star Wars fans.
