First up this week is the collected edition of Crimson Empire III - Empire Lost. This TPB collects issues #1-6 of the recently released, and final, series in the Crimson Empire Saga. But even better, for fans of the hardcover releases, you can get the entire Crimson Empire Saga in one handy hardcover edition. This excellent tome features all three series (Crimson Empire, Crimson Empire - Council of Blood, & Crimson Empire - Empire Lost) with a nice book jacket as well! The trade paperback is a standard $19.99 while the hardcover is an affordable $34.99!
Next up is the penultimate chapter of Knight Errant - Escape, in which Kerra Holt is caught between three Sith armies. This is a situation that will take all of her Jedi training, and savvy to get out of. With a cover by Benjamin Carré, and art by Marco Castiello & Vincenzo Acunzo, writer John Jackson Miller explores the unexplored era of the Sith versus the Jedi!
Also out today, and also written by John Jackson Miller (boy, that guy gets around!) is the second issue of the Lost Tribe of the Sith - Spiral. Set during the time of the Old Republic, a rebel and a stowaway princess find themselves in a losing battle with their crewmates against a society of strange self-proclaimed exiles. When they are taken in by the exiles, new opportunities for power within the civilization pique their interest. Fans of the eBook stories (which were tie-in's with Fate of the Jedi) can now start to get more details on these mysterious exiles! Andrea Mutti provides the art with Paul Renaud on covers.
And, for the fans who live in the electronic realm, the digital comics available this week at digital.darkhorse.com include: Star Wars: Knight Errant—Escape #4, Star Wars: Lost Tribe of the Sith—Spiral #2, & Star Wars: The Clone Wars — The Sith Hunters.
