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
