My rating: 5 of 5 stars

It’s always challenging to review a comic that leans so heavily on a last page reveal that it spends the entire issue building to. Suffice it to say that you will figure it out before you reach the final page, but that doesn’t make it any less awesome or welcome.

But, yeah, Boba Fett discovers Jabba has placed an bounty on his head after having had the carbonite encased Han Solo stolen from him, and he’s on a mission to find out why, who stole Han and to both get him back and murder whoever was responsible.

I’m not the greatest fan of Luke Ross’s artwork, but it’s genuinely great here. This is a much more comic-booky looking comic than we’ve been used to in Marvel’s Star Wars run, but the combination of some really great backgrounds and a much lighter colouring palette than we’re used to seeing in these books makes for a fine looking comic.

The writing is as good as we’ve come to expect from Charles Soule. He’s crafting a complex and winding tale that draws in pretty much every faction in the galaxy and I doubt that this issue’s last page reveal will be the only surprise in this mammoth crossover event.
