This week has John Ostrander's incredible Agent of the Empire—Hard Targets
. It's basic premise is James Bond meets Star Wars
, but that does not do the fun and action justice. In this issue, the Imperial Navy has arrived and Agent Cross has been officially told to stand down from his mission overseeing the election of a regent for the young Duke of Serenno. But Cross is not about to allow an innocent boy to be used as a disposable pawn—even if it serves the Empire’s short-term goals. Plus, there's Boba Fett! Davidé Fabbri and Christian Dalla Vecchia provide the artwork while Stephané Roux provides the cover.
Also on sale is the newest Omnibus in the continuing line: Infinities
! It presents all three Infinities mini-series, which tell alternate tales (what-if's, or elseworlds, if you will) of the Original Trilogy. This TPB will set you back $24.99 for some pretty great alternate tales of the galaxy far, far away!
And, for the fans who live in the electronic realm, the digital comics available this week at digital.darkhorse.com
