Star Wars: Crimson Empire III - Empire Lost

Star Wars: Crimson Empire III: Empire Lost - Mike Richardson, Paul Gulacy The conclusion of Crimson Empire brings Kir Kanos' journey full circle, and back to face the last of the traitorous red guards. Mirith Sinn's role as personal bodyguard to the Head of State, Leia Organa, places her central to the story. When an assassination attempt forces Sinn to team up with Kanos, the New Republic council makes it clear they they do not trust either party. This is the redemption part of the Crimson Empire Saga, and it shines. While I'm sad to see Kanos and Sinn go in the end, their story is concluded, and in a marvelously bittersweet fashion. It's rare that a licensed property comic can dig so deep and create something as fresh as Crimson Empire, but it's a trilogy of tales well worth your time. Must reads for any "Star Wars" fan.
