Star Wars: Bounty Hunters (2020-) #5 by Ethan Sacks
My rating: 1 of 5 stars
Well…the cover’s nice?
Other than that…well, I think all interest I had in this series drained away with #4, now I’m honestly just reading this as I’m a completionist and I have every other canon Star Wars comic.
But, really, this is bad. It’s hard to follow. The dialogue is terrible. Characters just appear out of nowhere and we’re supposed to know who they are. But we don’t. We don’t know who they are or what’s going on. It’s just a mess. And, honestly, at this point I hate Valance. He’s an obscure character from the original Marvel run someone brought back because they thought he was cool, but pretty much anyone else would be more interesting. A gonk droid would be more interesting. And having him fight Boba Fett doesn’t make him more interesting, because the only thing that would be interesting would be to have a definitive victor, and that can’t be Fett because then Valance would be dead, and it can’t be Valance because, well, they can’t kill off Fett in a comic set before RotJ, can they?
I’ve already wasted too many words talking about this comic.
