Crimson Empire has had a fairly straightforward plot when you get down to it but it's taken a somewhat convoluted route to get there. With the distance between the this series and the previous one, it's easy to forget certain elements and characters and how they all interact together. Things have come together well by this point and it's pretty interesting to watch it unfold as it all moves towards the finale. The general idea of the two sides trying to forge a peace between each other is an interesting one, even if it's ultimately doomed to failure, and I like the cast of characters involved. I just wish it had a lot more time to unfold as six issues keeps the pacing off a bit and doesn't allow it to really draw out the characters. It's one that I'd almost prefer more in novelized form to get the full experience and fun. Read Full Review
