Agent of the Empire has been one of our favorite new Star Wars comic storylines ever since the first issue.

Here we get Jahan Cross

-the Agent of the Empire

and his Dad

oh and Boba Fett

and Serenno (Count Dooku!)

what more could you ask for?

Well the finale of this story didn’t quite make sense – though the overall plot was great fun.

How Cross was able to double-cross Boba Fett and get him to kill what should have been the new count of serenno didn’t quite make sense to us. The story just kinda wheezed out in the end in a climax that wasn’t terribly exciting.

Star Wars Agent of the Empire Hard Targets #2

Star Wars Agent of the Empire Hard Targets #2

We really enjoyed the first Agent of the Empire series – Iron Eclipse. What was not to like?

A new super agent that has awesome skills like a James Bond, he’s ‘friends’ with Han Solo and he is loyal to the Empire kinda/sorta…

Now Jahan Cross is back and this time he starts off by killing the Count of Serreno (yeaah the same place Count Dooku is from). Then he goes to help those poor SOBS find a new count…great Imperial duplicity.

AND oh yeah.

We meet Jahan’s dad too – who apparently is a legitimate good guy.

So far we’re two issues into this story and it has been one of the most enjoyable Star Wars titles we’ve read all year.

We had some doubts about this series when it first started, but Dark Horse and the GREAT John Ostrander have proven us wrong.

From first page to last, this issue gripped us with action that we couldn’t put down. Jahan Cross beds his enemies sister, then she gets toasted not by her brother as we expect,  instead the brother is killed by the robotkilling father.

Nice twist.

Now how are they going to get off the iron eclipse?

Sure Han and Chewie will just swoop in …..

Or will they?

In any event, the addition of Jahan Cross to the Star Wars canon is a great one, he’s a character that we want to see  a whole lot more of from Dark Horse in the months and years to come.

A great week ahead for SciFi comic book fans.

At the top of our list is Dark Horse Star Wars Agent of the Empire #4. This series first story arc is coming to a close and we really have no idea quite how this will be resolved. So far it has been a fun ride though. this new issue looks to continue that trend.

We get a double dose of Star Wars goodness this week too with the release of STAR WARS KNIGHTS OF THE OLD REPUBLIC WAR #3 (OF 5).

Yeaah Zayne Carrick is still a P*ssy but the story is good fun..and really we just want to see how he figures a way out of the mess that he’s stuck in…

Looking beyond Dark Horse we’re also interested in:

DC –

LEGION LOST #7

IDW –

DOCTOR WHO ONGOING VOL 2 #15

STAR TREK 100 PAGE SPECTACULAR 2012

and

WILLIAM SHATNER MAN O WAR ONGOING #1 (

Ever since John Ostrander revealed he would be working on a new series – after the greatest Dark Horse Star Wars comic of all time — Legacy — we’ve been excited about his new project.

After reading it – we’re interested, but a bit underwhelmed.

Agent of the Empire is essentially a James Bond kind of character working for the Empire.

Ok that’s alright, but he’s a stick figure of a character (so far) without much personality.

That artwork is passable and not up to Legacy standards yet either.

And from a canon perspective – when did we find out that Han Solo went to the Imperial Academy? somehow i missed that before…a neat twist though and seeing a younger Han Solo makes this book almost worthwhile.

So long story short, empire’s agent is hunting down bad apples in the Empire…..

Sure we’ll keep reading this – it’s only a five issue series after all – but the premise isn’t nearly as strong as the previous generation of Star Wars titles and so far, neither is the plot, artwork or characters.
