Format: Paperback
This volume reprints Marvel Comics' X-Men: Emperor Vulcan issues #1-5. It is a continuation of a plot-line from previous X-Men stories, and will be continued in one of the `War of Kings' volumes. In this volume, the current Starjammers are continuing the Shi'ar civil war on behalf of the deposed Empress Lilandra, while a new alien race turns up claiming the planet containing the M'kraan as their long-lost homeworld, stolen from them 1,000 years ago by the Shi'ar, who committed genocide on the inhabitants (but obviously were not thorough enough). The Starjammes and Vulcan's forces have to join together to stop this threat, especially as the aliens have a very powerful weapon that Vulcan would like to control. Needles to say, Vulcan betrays the trust of the Starjammers, capturing some (who will be rescued during the `War of Kings'), while using the captured weapon to complete the genocide of the aliens, thereby finally proving his right to rule the Shi'ar. This is an entertaining story and has very good artwork. It is an episode in a longer story, though you don't need to know all the details to enjoy it, as sufficient back-story is explained as it goes along.

So, you've read and loved 'Deadly Genesis' and 'Rise and Fall of the Shi'ar Empire' and your back for more. Well, this is good, but not perfect, still streets ahead of most other Marvel offerings! This does not end the tale, it's another chapter - and a bridge really into the 'War of Kings' event. There are significant beats throughout but not so extraordinary as those in previous volumes. Yost's writing is not quite up to that of Brubaker's and Vulcan's decline into pantomime-villain is complete here. Not the gem like the previous but still one of the brightest, shiniest books you'll own! If you're still involved - and you really should be- then the next chapter you need is the curiously named 'Road to War of Kings' - curious because it doesn't really push itself as an X-Men chapter and yet features the 'X-Men Kingbreaker' series!
(As I write this Amazon do not appear to have this in stock - it's well worth seeking out for it's cover price, but not esential at any over-inflated price!)

Following on from the end of the rise and fall of the shi'ar empire, it's a bit of a stop gap to be honest. The story doesn't expand too much from what we already know but it does cement vulcan as the one true emporer of the empire. Rather than have a straight fight between the new starjammers and the shi'ar, we are introduced to a new alien race with ties to the empire itself. This was a weak plot device which added nothing to the overall confrontation between the two sides and serves no real purpose. Whilst the story and art are not as solid as the rise and fall, it certainly is passable but it seems as this serves as a bridge to the upcoming war of kings. For the sake of keeping up to speed with developments of the shi'ar empire this book is worth reading but is hardly essential. Despite what may seem like a negative review, i was happy to spend a couple of quid on this and i've read a lot worse.
