Well, the cover’s really nice. Mattia De Iulis definitely deserves some credit for that/
As for the rest of the comic…I think I’ve banged on enough about Valance. He’s not interesting. He’s a cliché on legs. He is, quite literally, a remnant from a cheesy late seventies sci-fi comic. And, in a book about the bounty hunters from Star Wars he is taking up space that could have been filled by one of the bounty hunters that’s actually interesting…and from the movies.
But, hey, it is what it is, and while this issue was basically Valance does John McClane, it was reasonably entertaining. Also, while the writing isn’t great, I suspect a lot of the problem with this book is the art. Villanelli’s art is superficially very nice, but his story telling is lacking, and as such it’s very hard to tell what’s going on during some of the fight scenes.
With the upcoming War Of The Bounty Hunters meaning that this book will take a more pivotal role in Marvel’s Star Wars line, we can only hope that there’s some significant improvement in the coming months.
