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.

Wow what a great week for SciFi comic fans!

We’ve got at least four really great titles out this week from Dark Horse alone to look forward too.

At the top of  our list is Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic: War #2 – sure we weren’t thrilled with the first issue, but hey we’re sure thrilled to have KOTOR back!

Next up is STAR WARS CRIMSON EMPIRE III EMPIRE LOST #4 (OF 6). This is a series that we waited years for and each issue is better than the next.

Rounding out this week’s Star Wars triumvirate of comics is

STAR WARS AGENT OF The EMPIRE IRON ECLIPSE #3 (OF 5) – we loved the last issue and can hardly wait to crack this one open.

Dark Horse also has DARK MATTER #2 (OF 4) – which is written by the team behind Stargate (the show!) and hey it’s kinda neat too.

And next week – Dawn of the Jedi #1 is out!! can this month get any better?

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.

One of our favorite Star Wars authors of all time, John Ostrander is set to pen the next big Star Wars series from Dark Horse.

According to Dark Horse:”Ostrander, who was part of the Dark Horse panel, described it as “James Bond meets Star Wars.” He said that because the story’s superspy for the Sith is working in the classic era of the films, we may see the return of several beloved characters, including Han Solo, Leia, and Winter.”

Sounds good to us. We have seen some limited detective type novels in the Star Wars universe, but never in the comics..
