The minds at the Disney understood the world of Star Wars before they even owned Lucasfilm. They had been minding the wonder of magic for decades. They knew how to feed their fanbase before they even knew what they wanted. I dare anyone to walk through one of their parks, and not be pulled in by how enchanting the whole place is.
So when they acquired Lucasfilm, they already knew how they wanted to approach the franchise and how to expand it. The continuation of The Clone Wars and the two seasons of The Mandalorian proved just how committed the were to keeping fans interested. Where they really shine is in finding those stories within the universe, like in Rogue One. In one of the first standalone stories about the Bounty Hunters within Star Wars, we get the backstory to a minor character whose origin is much more complicated in Star Wars: War of the Bounty Hunters – Boushh #1.
We are taken to Ord Mantell City in the Bright Jewel System, where find Boushh and his crew just took back a stolen vehicle for a boss from the Black Sun. We soon find out Boushh had been banned from his home planet Uba IV and often take dangerous jobs to keep fed. As they take on a job form a duplicitous character named Margo, where they must eliminate the executive board of the Tagge Corporation. We soon meet Lady Domina, the head of the corporation who took out most of her family members to rise to the top, and the family’s insidious plans makes The Emperor’s ruminations infantile in comparison. Boushh’s crew finally invades the ship they are, taking out most of the corporation’s security, but they several underestimated Domina. By the book’s end, though Boushh and his guys were defeated, they instead find a compromise, and join forces with Domina to extinguish her enemies.
Overall, Star Wars: War of the Bounty Hunters – Boushh #1 is a story I didn’t expect much from and was pleasantly surprised to find an action packed sidewinder. The story by Alyssa Wong is exciting. The art by the creative team is gorgeous. Altogether, an excellent story that will excite long time fans of Star Wars.
