Crimson Dawn’s Lady Qi’ra Slays the Sith in Marvel Comics’ ‘Star Wars: Hidden Empire’

There’s a stirring within the Force emanating from the potent pen of superstar writer Charles Soule (“The High Republic: Light of the Jedi”) that fans will flock to as Marvel Comics kicks off a major line-wide expansion of their flagship “Star Wars ” comics.

“Star Wars: Hidden Empire” is written by Soule, the main wordsmith and architect behind “Star Wars: War of the Bounty Hunters” and “Star Wars: Crimson Reign.”

Joining him in this creative endeavor that rounds out his epic trilogy is series artist Steven Cummings (“Star Wars: Crimson Reign”), who also crafted a striking set of connecting variant covers for the debut issue that combines Lady Qi’ra, Darth Vader , Emperor Palpatine, The Knights of Ren, and other main characters in the story arc.

This “most impressive” five-issue limited series will keep its narrative focus on Lady Qi’ra, the resourceful character spawned from the 2018 feature film, “Solo: A Star Wars Story.” As the Crimson Dawn’s cunning commander, her ambitions and desires have reverberated throughout Marvel’s vast roster of “Star Wars” comics. “Star Wars: Hidden Empire” goes full throttle to unveil Qi’ra’s master plan to exterminate evil Sith entities from the entire galaxy.
