The first issue was released in December 2011. Part of the Franchise/StarWarsExpandedUniverse.
This comic series contains the following:
* AnythingThatMoves: Jahan seems to have no problem with sex with alien females. Played with as this is part of his mission.
** Admittedly, they were stepmother and daughter.
* BigBad: [[spoiler: Iaco Stark]]
* CaptainErsatz: Jahan Cross is one for James Bond, specifically a combination of the Connery and Craig versions.
* ContinuityPorn: We finally get to see Dooku's homeworld, we get a previous comic series from a decade ago form the crux of another plot, and a substantial portion of the second trade takes place on Alderaan.
** Plus Boba Fett.
* ForTheEvulz: Darth Vader forces the heirs of Serenno's Great Houses to murder their patriarchs as punishment for the Clone Wars.
* GenericDoomsdayVillain: [[spoiler: Iaco Stark becomes one.]]
* HandsomeLech: Jahan Cross appears to be one.
* OvertAgent: Jahan seems to have problems with this.
* RidiculouslyHumanRobot: Averted, surprisingly. IN-GA is supposed to be a sexy human replica robot but Jahan Stark doesn't like droids which look that way.
* ShaggyDogStory: Implied for ''Hard Targets''. Jahan Cross goes to elaborate lengths to save the young Count of Serenno. In the end, he manages to save him. Where does he select for him to hide out? [[spoiler: Alderaan]].
* SpyDrama: Dirty Martini variant. It has glamorous settings, big explosions, and beautiful women, but the main character works for an EvilEmpire (though he isn't really that evil) battling evil enemies.
* XanatosGambit: Jahan Cross is a master of these.
* WouldNotHurtAChild: Jahan Cross' one line. He's perfectly willing to kill anyone else who stands in his way.
