My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Well, this is a definite improvement over the previous issue, mostly because it was actually possible to follow what’s going on. Still, not anywhere up to the standard of the rest of this crossover event…

…and what crossover event is that? that would be The War of the Bounty Hunters, which continues in the pages of this comic. Valance and Dengar are on Nar Shaddaa, the Smuggler’s Moon, hot on the trail of Boba Fett. They’ve missed him, but Dengar knows a guy who might know where he went, but it’ll take tact and diplomacy to get the intel. So, of course, Valance just punches him right in the face, because valance is an idiot now apparently.

After a fight, Valance dangles the guy over a large drop and he spills the beans, Fett doesn’t have Han Solo, Crimson Dawn do. But Valance doesn’t believe that Crimson Dawn are back, because he hasn’t read the previous instalment in this crossover. Silly man.

The issue ends with the reveal of a new, badass, female bounty hunter, who’ll ne doubt be even cooler and more badass than Valance…

So, yeah, better than the last issue, but Sacks’ writing is still frustratingly pedestrian and the characterisation of Valance is still wildly inconsistent. Is he hot headed and reckless or is he a grizzled veteran? Who knows!
