Comic Book: Star Wars: Crimson Empire

Crimson Empire was a series of Star Wars Expanded Universe comic books written by Mike Richardson and Randy Stradley. They were originally released by Dark Horse Comics in 1997 and 1998 as a six-issue monthly series, which was later compiled and sold as a trade paperback. Its first sequel, Crimson Empire II: Council of Blood, was released later in 1998 and 1999.

It is primarily acclaimed for the 12-page final duel between Kir Kanos and Carnor Jax. In late 2008, it was claimed that work on Crimson Empire III, the second sequel to Crimson Empire, would begin; Stradley later debunked this claim. At Celebration V it was announced that Crimson Empire III would be released in 2011. It was finally finished in September 2012.
