This issue feels a lot more like a Bounty Hunters book than it usually does. By that I mean that the focus isn’t so much on Valance, and Boba Fett, Zuckuss and Dengar also feature prominently. As such it’s a far more enjoyable read. It helps that it closely ties into the events of War of the Bounty Hunters, although you really do need to be reading the main book to get the full story here. Valance also works much better when played off Fett than he does with Dengar. Or maybe, you know, Fett’s just cooler.
Villanelli also does a great job on the art here, with Prianto’s colours doing a lot to aid the storytelling.
All in all this is a big improvement for this series and I’m hoping it continues.
