A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away…
I started reading these comics. For the first time, though probably not the last, I’m joining Kirr and MizzeeOH in reviewing classic Star Wars comic volumes. Today, I’ll be reviewing Crimson Empire II: Council of Blood, brought to us by the same people who made Crimson Empire.
The new Emperor Carnor Jax is dead, but his Imperial Interim Ruling Council lives on. As several groups plot their own Imperial takeover, the squabbling Council itself is obsessed with one another and the threat still posed by Kir Kanos, assassin of Carnor Jax. In the meantime, Hutt crime lord Grappa is involved, one way or another, in almost all of the capers… and the threat posed by his own temper.
