Welcome back from the flight to Endor! This week’s rundown we start with Blood of the Empire #9. SWTOR.com’s free webcomic continues with the start of its 3rd story arc entitled Burn the Future. This issue is the 9th in the overall Blood of the Empire series, and the first of four of this arc. (It can get confusing, we know.)

Exal Kressh is a woman scorned it appears, and has set the pieces in motion for a war on the Sith Emperor and Korriban itself! What did you do to anger her so Mr. Emperor? Oh what did you do? Teneb Kel strikes a deal with a Jedi who is also seeking Kressh, and learns that his answers too lie on Korriban, at the Sith Academy!

Hit the jump for more!

Here’s a look again at the synopsis for Blood of the Empire #9:

Act 3: Burn the Future

Through pain, suffering and the power of the dark side, Sith apprentice Teneb Kel has learned the nightmarish truth about Exal Kressh and the Children of the Emperor. Now he’s faced with the challenge of turning that knowledge into a deadly weapon, and defeating an enemy who nearly killed him once already. The final confrontation between Teneb, Maggot and Exal approaches, as war rages across the galaxy!
