It’s wall to wall action in this issue as Luke faces Vader in space, X-Wing vs TIE Fighter style. Oh, and he also has a helping hand from the Droid Crush.
This is a solid issue, with some great action, and some good little bits with the Hutts and with Ochi and Sly Moore. But as a whole it feels like it’s mainly connective tissue, moving us from Point A to Point B in the plot. Which is fine, but a lot of War of the Bounty Hunters has felt like this, with many of the books feeling like they’re treading water while waiting for the main book to move everything along.
Still, it’s excellent stuff, with gorgeous are and great writing.
