It suddenly occurs to me, sitting down to review this issue, that the War Of The Bounty Hunters story, so far, hasn’t really included a war…of the bounty hunters. What we do get in this issue is a small skirmish of the Bounty Hunters, as Dengar and Valance team up against Boba Fett. But Fett quickly gets the best of them, leaving Dengar floating, alone on an iceberg and then agreeing to team up with Valance.
But, ultimately, what we have here is a very fun, action packed comic that really feels like Star Wars. There’s also some great political Hutt drama, and for some reason I really enjoy Hutt politics.
The art is also really good. I’ve not been a huge fan of Luke Ross in the past, but he’s really stepped up to the plate with his work on this series.
So, yeah, the War Of The Bounty Hunters has been a bit up and down across the series as a whole, but this core book continues to be really strong.
