Marvel annonce la mini-série Star Wars : Crimson Reign, qui continuera de raconter l’histoire de Qi’ra (interprétée par Emilia Clarke dans Solo : A Star Wars Story), leader de l’organisation criminelle Aube Ecarlate, après les événements de la saga War of the Bounty Hunters.
Par Charles Soule et Steven Cummings. Le #1 sortira en décembre.
« I planned to tell the story we’re seeing in War of the Bounty Hunters from the very first pitches I wrote when I knew I’d be taking over the Star Wars title for Marvel, » Soule told IGN. « But it was really when I knew I had a secret weapon to deploy storywise that the seeds of Crimson Reign began to take root in my mind: Qi’ra, former paramour of Han Solo and current leader of the infamous Crimson Dawn crime syndicate, as portrayed by Emilia Clarke in Solo: A Star Wars Story film. »
Soule explained that 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. »
