Hard Targets will be the second arc of the Agent of the Empire comic series starring Jahan Cross. Cover artist Stephane Roux posted a snapshot of his current works on Facebook which included a first glimpse at one of the covers for Hard Targets...and Vader is on the cover.



Also worth noting is the unidentified Trandoshan. Due to the clothing, I don't think it's Bossk.

Hard Targets has a new artist, and his style is different, but I think combined with the excellent coloring, it works pretty good. The story is still great as always. I like where i headed in this issue too.

Dug this first issue. It introduces characters from the established EU, furthers Cross's character, and gives away nothing more than a taste of what the arc will be about.

3 issues in and still great. The art reminds me of Empire 16-18, the original Janek Sunber issues.

I agree this has been a good Arc, maybe even the best one running right now!

I've been really enjoying this comic and this arc is just making me love it more. It has the right mix of real-world feel and SW implementation that it just makes you wanting more. The use of both well-known and brand new characters is also very nicely balanced. Looking forward to more.

I loved the name drop of the Bothan Spynet. Hope they come into play in a later arc. That would be awesome.

This comic finishes off strong!! For once I thought a comic series did a good job with their use of Fett. Nice suave ending that you should expect from the tails of an Imperial Agent

I agree, I really loved this arc! This is an instance where I wish SW comics wouldn't do these contained miniseries and instead just do an on-going because I want to read more of this one as soon as possible.

Definitely a nice finish to the arc, thought the last two pages were just a tad bit anticlimatic. However, I totally missed the fact that the young Count Dooku ended up on Alderaan and with the time placement, his doom may be near.

But yeah, nice use of Fett, and I liked how Ostrander dropped little lines to make Jahan Cross seem like he's a part of the galaxy. The little connections, like how he mentioned he's met Fett before.

Really felt that this one took a dark turn, but I really liked it. I hope we get more of Cross, I'm loving this character.
