I'm sort of excited. I've only read Crimson Empire I, with Crimson Empire II high on my list. But, from what little I've heard, when I do get around to actually getting it, I will be very excited!

And no, I cannot say Kir Kanos. No matter how hard I try. It is my shame Crying or Very sad .

I haven't read the first two volumes yet. Now I'm just waiting for the 3rd part in trade to read it all.

I've read a little bit of Crimson Empire I, but both of them are on my to-read/to-buy list. I love the artwork they've shown for Crimson Empire III. It looks beautiful. Really rich colors and stunning detail. I'll definitely be buying it.

Some. The preview of the Qui-Gon comics looks a little less than stellar. Not sure that's a style I could enjoy. Knight Errant's first two issues were absolutely stellar. Invasion has some really good art that keeps a nice steady pace throughout. I've found that Jan's artwork in Legacy seemed to go up and down in an issue. She would do some panels real simple, and take more time with others, so you got a mix that was overall good even though some panels were bad.

But the preview for Crimson Empire III looked absolutely solid. If it stays with that pace, then it could be one of the best illustrated Star Wars comics yet.

I picked up the first issue of the Qui-Gon issue. The art is a bit rough but may get better.
I haven't touched Old Republic till now with "Lost Suns" seems ok so far. Legacy Art was always good to me. My only gripe was all background Sith were red with black tatts. Not to much thought there sometimes.

Empire 3 tho does stand out. The art in the first run was very impressive.

Looks like Crimson Empire III: Empire Lost #1 is getting a variant cover. I like the coloring, even if the style leans toward more cartoonish and less detail.

Yeah the alt cover looks nice.

Should cut out the fight scene. Starscape with the Crimson helmet looks menacing
enough....

I want this, but am intentionally waiting for the TPB. I'm holding out hope that the TPB will contain the Crimson Empire III 0 story, as found in DHP #1.

I'm doing what wookiee_inked is doing. I was gonna buy the CE1 TPB but I'm gonna wait for them to finish with CE3 and release all 3 in a hardback bundle, like they did with Dark Empire.

Do we know that they've got plans to turn the TPBs into omnibuses/hardback, for certain?
