Star Wars Agent of the Empire: Dark Horse? Srsly? You’re doing this instead of Legacy?? December 18, 2011

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.

Alright, I’ll be the first one to say it then…..isn’t the fun part about breasts being that they are soft and not made out of metal?

Oh, and Han Solo went to the Academy in the “Han Solo Trilogy” for one though it doesn’t go into it much beyond extrapolating a bit further on the “Imperial officer kicked out of the service for defending a wookie slave” thing that is mentioned a few times throughout the novel series.
