Star Wars artist Stéphane Roux posted a photo on Facebook yesterday of his current projects. Among the artwork was an image from Agent of the Empire, most likely for the upcoming arc Hard Targets. Even more interesting is the appearance of an unidentified Trandoshan and Darth Vader himself. At first I thought it might have been Bossk, but the clothing is different, so it’s probably a new character. No word yet on when Hard Targets #1 will be coming out, but the artwork is looking gorgeous.
