Star Wars Handbook Volume 2: Crimson Empire (1999) "The Crimson Empire Saga" begins with an ending; the final defeat of the Emperor Palpatine by his long-time foes, the Rebel Alliance, led by the legendary siblings, Luke Skywalker and Leia Organa Solo. Slightly more interesting than the original Crimson Empire series, but strangely, much less focused on Kir Kanos and his vendetta.
Star Wars: How Crimson Empire Finally Made the Imperial Guard Cool In Star Wars, the Imperial Guards just stood by the Emperor's side, but Crimson Empire proved why they were some of the Empire's best warriors. It is a story of revenge and redemption, as over the course of the trilogy Kanos grows and changes in ways he'd never have expected. Hopefully, with the upcoming Crimson Empire III run, they will put Kanos back in the spotlight and address his growing inner turmoil over the true nature of Palpatine's Galactic Empire. Pretty good Star Wars comic series. The crimson empire saga is the story of kir kanos, last of emperor Palpatine's crimson clad imperial guardsmen.
