    OverallThis issue brings to an end the Crimson Reighn storyline, but it isn't the end of the story. That is yet to come in a new mini-series that will be called The Hidden Empire. And of course, we'll be subscribing to it. Or at least trying to cover every issue. Read Full Review

    While I continue to like the potential of what Qi'ra represents and can both within this sphere of time and what can come afterward in a post-ROTJ world, this series didn't hit the notes it needed to in order to feel worthwhile. There were interesting parts to it but we're left just waiting for the real story to happen in the next and final miniseries. This one does do some heavy lifting along the way to get things into place as they need to be but it wasn't all that compelling and shifting gears to different leads with each issue didn't help it much either. I liked aspects of it and there was some really solid dialogue along the way, such as the Vader and Palpatine material here, but the series overall just left me wanting something more meaningful.

    Qira has publicly declared her true intentions to displace the evil Sith rulers and to install her own Empire. At the same time, the Emperor is gunning for her too. All of this will add up to what will almost certainly be a clash worthy of the name Star Wars. Read Full Review

    This fifth and final issue of the event series hardly comes across a conclusion, serving more as a setup for the next five-issue event, resulting in an overall frustrating experience. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - M.R. Jafri Jun 24, 2022

    This is an interesting setup to the final series of Qi'ra's story. Hopefully we get a bit more time to truly understand her motivations even as we see her serving as a great adversary for Vader and Palpatine. The art and colors here are consistent and clear although they don't add any unexpected excitement to the proceedings and come off as a bit flat. This book feels like filler content rather than a necessary piece of the puzzle. Hopefully the final arc brings us much more action and depth with core characters that we care about.

    As it is I cannot recommend this one or the series at all and it does not look like the next series is going to amount to much. Read Full Review
