Today sees the final chapters of Star Wars: War Of The Bounty Hunters published with Star Wars Doctor Aphra #16 and War Of The Bounty Hunters #5. Not only does it conclude that series, it sets up the sequel event for December, The Crimson Reign before teasing a third finale, The Hidden Empire. And we see Crimson Dawn everywhere, the intergalactic criminal empre introduced in Solo: A Star Wars Story, led by Qi'Ra, former girlfriend of Han Solo. Star Wars Doctor Aphra #16 lays that out with Aphra and Sana, former wife of Han Solo…
Man, that Han Solo does get around, does he not? Lando lays that out as well in War Of The Bounty Hunters #5.
Awkward. While Doctor Aphra confirms the spread of Crimson Dawn, with Qi'Ra at the centre of it all…
As Lando gets even more tongue-tied.
Because the Crimson Dawn is here. And the Crimson Reign is coming, And drawn from much of the cast of War Of The Bounty Hunters.
This is your new Crimson Dawn, a wretched hive of scum and villainy… with what appears to be an earlier version of the Knights Of Ren, including Vicrul and Cardo – but also an unknown tiny Knight Of Ren. Ewok or Jawa? Does that mean they will also form The Hidden Empire? Will this be what joins Crimson Dawn to The First Order? Plenty more to come…
