The first love of Han Solo’s life, Qi’ra, continues her story in Star Wars: Crimson Reign, a second in a planned trilogy of arcs written by veteran Star Wars author Charles Soule, will have five new issues coming starting in November.
Speaking to IGN, Soule hinted at what fans can expect from Crimson Reign, a story that will focus on the Crimson Dawn and Qi’ra, who fans may recognize as Emilia Clarke’s character from Solo: A Star Wars Story.
“While Qi’ra plays a huge part in War of the Bounty Hunters, that event is really a Boba Fett story. I have a bigger story I’m going to tell with Qi’ra and Crimson Dawn, and it’s all connected to the reasons she kicked things off in War of the Bounty Hunters in the first place. You’ll learn more about that in the closing pages of War of the Bounty Hunters #5, out in October, and I think fans have no idea how exciting and new this story will feel.”
It sounds like a lot of characters will return in this series which is exciting.
“From the moment I took the gig writing Star Wars, I wanted to do new things in the Star Wars timeline between Episodes V and VI, using new characters from all eras of the galaxy far, far away,” Soule told IGN. “Everything and everyone is fair game, and I think people are really going to enjoy it. Await the Reign.”
