I’ve been watching the “Episode IX: Duel Of The Fates” fan made comics and animated films lately, and I’ve really enjoyed them. So it is now time for Crimson Empire and some of the other 1990’s EU releases. If anyone else is interested in these:

“In all the Empire, there are no more fearsome warriors than the Emperor’s Imperial Guard, and none is more loyal than Kir Kanos. But when Carnor Jax—the most formidable of this elite brotherhood—betrays the Emperor and orders the murder of the Guard, Kir must escape to carry out his duty to avenge his master. Devoted to the last, Kir must nonetheless ally himself with Rebel forces to help him attain his retribution in the face of the Empire’s full might brought down to destroy him. For Kir Kanos, the last royal Imperial Guard and the final threat to Jax’s rise to power, there are no alternatives—loyalty never dies.”
For me in my own head-cannon, Crimson Empire (11-13 ABY) was the finale of a “Trilogy of Sequel Trilogy” stories, following on from Zahn’s Heir To The Empire trilogy (9 ABY), and Veitchs’ Dark Empire trilogy (10-11 ABY). I enjoyed the New Jedi Order and X-Wing series, but didn’t really read much else from the EU as the other releases just didn’t hold my interest as much as these “Trilogy of Sequel Trilogy” stories did.
Nathan S also has a Star Wars animated comic website with more EU content available, that is not on YouTube (for free): https://nlstrong.wixsite.com/starwarsmotioncomic
