Agent of the Empire: Hard Targets #2 is out today.

Imperial Agent Jahan Cross doesn’t like his assignment or the politicians he is forced to work with. Yet dealing with all of that is easier than coming to terms with his growing respect for a boy whose father he killed—especially when that boy is supposed to be merely a political pawn of the Empire. When attackers kidnap the boy, Cross finds himself turning his back on his mission and putting his life on the line for a “pawn.” No job is too dangerous for an Agent of the Empire!

Dark Horse Comics has several new Star Wars releases, all of them trade paperbacks.

Dark Times: Out of the Wilderness TPB

Everyone wants fugitive Jedi Dass Jennir. An assassin is hot on his heels, Darth Vader is also in the race to find him, and even the outlaw crew of the Uhumele are searching for their former companion. But for Jennir and his “partner” Ember Chankeli, those are distant concerns as they endure a scorching desert trek and an attack by deadly land pirates!

Even under a blazing sun, these are dark times! Collects Star Wars: Dark Times—Out of the Wilderness #1–#5.

Agent of the Empire: Iron Eclipse TPB

Imperial power is at its height. With Palpatine on the throne and his chief enforcer, Darth Vader, leading fleets of Star Destroyers and legions of stormtroopers across the galaxy, the Empire is an unstoppable force for order and peace.

But not every political problem requires military might; not every negotiation depends on a show of force. Sometimes all diplomacy needs to succeed is the right man, in the right place, with the willingness to get the job done. No matter what it takes.

Collects Star Wars: Agent of the Empire—Iron Eclipse #1–#5.

Knights of the Old Republic: War TPB

The Republic and the Mandalorians are at war, and some of the Jedi are joining the fight! One Jedi, peace-loving Zayne Carrick, has found himself on the front lines against his wishes—he’s been drafted . . . And when Zayne is captured by the Mandalorians while storming beaches with his fellow Republic troops, he suddenly is forced not only to fight, but to fight alongside the enemy! Collects Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic—War #1–#5.

CBR Interview with John Ostrander

CBR posted an interview with comics writer John Ostrander on the upcoming Agent of the Empire: Hard Targets.

“This one is bit more of a John LeCarre spy story with explosions, chases, and a beautiful woman or two. There are still Bond elements to it but it’s a darker story and Cross is more of a bastard in it — We want to include other espionage tropes and memes in it as well. This arc includes a John LeCarre feel and some nods to the Steed and Peel ‘Avengers’ series. There are still plenty of Bondian touches to the story, but not every arc is going to be a ‘Bond film.’ I want to keep the readers on their toes.” –John Ostrander
