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.
