Crimson Reign (comic series)

(please log in to view the image)
quote:
This five-issue limited series will be the second installment in the trilogy that began in this year's WAR OF THE BOUNTY HUNTERS crossover. The series promises to shed even more light on the untold history of the Star Wars galaxy during the Age of Rebellion and will feature the return of beloved characters, shocking twists, epic feats of the Force and a story that will reach from Star Wars' darkest underworld all the way to the Imperial Palace on Coruscant.

-Slated for release this December.

Soule is writing, so I'll read. Interesting thing about the cover art is that Ren(former leader of the KoR) will evidently be playing a part in this... Wasn't really expecting to see him again. /shrug

Also looks like Tie defenders in the center background. Awesome.

And the promo quote says we can look forward to "epic feats of the Force". Wonder wtf they have in store there?

Someone has also pointed out the throne Palpatine is in, as well as the window behind him, indicate this is the throne room on the second Death Star. So it's possible at least part of Crimson Reign will take place concurrently with Return of the Jedi.

I am very excited to be getting more content with Ren! He was my favorite part of the Rise of Kylo Ren comic, so I'm really looking forward to more with the character. Don't know why I wasn't expecting to see him further fleshed out, since Soule obviously loves bringing back the character's he's written (Momin being a perfect example).

“Feature the return of beloved characters” > they add Ren…
Boy they have a very weird idea of “beloved” characters lmao

I'm really excited for Crimson Reign. Almost entirely because of the inclusion of the Knights of Ren, honestly.

Looks like there are a few different members in the KoR's roster.

You're right. Looks like at least 3 new knights. Didn't expect that.

And when is this story supposed to be taking place? Because the last issue of Bounty hunter wars concludes with Jabba getting carbonite Han back, so it seems like the timeline here is literally right before ROTJ.

I think there's a bit of time between Jabba acquiring Han and the Rebels executing the plan to rescue Han. That small window, straight up to Return of the Jedi, appears to be when Crimson Reign takes place (the first teaser image we had for Crimson Reign seemed to show Palpatine in his throne room on the second Death Star, meaning Crimson Reign would be concurrent with RotJ)

The DS2 was still around before it appeared in ROTJ, so Sidious chilling on his DS2 throne doesn't necessarily mean this will be taking place at the same time as ROTJ..And I honestly hope it doesn't take place at the same time, because that would muddy the waters.

But I mean there is only 1 year between ESB and ROTJ, so either way we have to be getting REALLY close to the events of ROTJ at this point.

If I'm not mistaken, it's heavily implied (if not outright stated) that Palpatine's trip to the DS2 was his only time aboard the vessel. It's kind of why Jerjerrod freaks out so much at the prospect of the Emperor arriving.

Yeah, Jerjerrod was absolutely shook when Vader told him that Palpatine was going to pay them a visit. I always took that as a heavy implication that Palpatine himself had never actually been to the station prior to his arrival in the film.

Although I'm not sure if the film explicitly states that it was the *only* time Palpatine had ever been aboard the Death Star II, so I suppose it's possible that he might've cruised by at some point before RotJ... But I'm not sure why he would bother, given that the DSII wasn't even fully operational until the events of the film itself. /shrug

That said, I would certainly prefer if the bulk of Crimson Reign weren't set concurrently with RotJ, because yeah... It would potentially muddle things quite a bit, given the purported scope of this event.

My thoughts as well.

Vader is supposed to be integral to crushing Crimson Dawn in this series, and apparently CD has infiltrated every major facet of the galaxy, so that's a lot of weeding out for him to do, if it is also taking place at the same time he was weeding out Luke and the Rebellion in ROTJ..

Looks promising. I love that the Archivist is based off of Maul's old concept art. Always good to see old concept art finding new purpose

Agreed. thumb up

Though Oochi allying himself with Crimson Dawn is something I was not expecting:
(please log in to view the image) (please log in to view the image) (please log in to view the image)

But the fact that we already know he was allowed to live(and continue serving Vader/Palpatine) after this event, obviously suggests that Oochi's supposed 'treason' isn't as cut-and-dry as it seems.

So either Qi'ra is using some sort of mind-control element on Oochi, similar to what we recently saw in Doctor Aphra:
https://ibb.co/jzd67WX
https://ibb.co/mG1RV97
https://ibb.co/r2WmXW1
https://ibb.co/4pKgNWR
https://ibb.co/kDm8fjC

...Or Vader has ordered Oochi to act as a sleeper agent of sorts, in an effort to further infiltrate Crimson Dawn.

I hope it's the latter, because I hate the thought of Qira using Sith tech and the like. sick

I'm betting Vader sent in Ochi as a sleeper agent. Ochi is really, really fixated on the idea that Vader and Palpatine are flat-out unbeatable. I doubt he'd actually turn on Vader.

Ya, I don't see Oochi betraying either of them on his own. He has seen their power first hand and is awestruck by it.
