WINNER TAKES ALL!
• Terrifying, implacable Dark Lord of the Sith DARTH VADER has laid claim to HAN SOLO, who is frozen in carbonite.
• But the great, exalted JABBA THE HUTT also believes that Solo is his property. It’s the galaxy’s baddest gangster versus the Empire’s most powerful enforcer, and neither is backing down.
• BOBA FETT is caught between a Sith and a Hutt…and it’s WINNER TAKE ALL.

Review: Star Wars: War of the Bounty Hunters #1

Star Wars: War of the Bounty Hunters #1

Fans of Star Wars will know that Boba Fett took the carbonite encased Han Solo to Jabba the Hutt, but how did that happen? As it turns out, the events in between The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi weren’t so smooth. Star Wars: War of the Bounty Hunters #1 tells that untold tale as we find learn Fett’s trip had a lot of sidequests and distractions.

Written by Charles Soule, the comic feels like it keeps Marvel’s additive focus. The Star Wars comics under Marvel has taken known events and time periods and added depth. They’ve filled in the gaps that we didn’t know and that includes the characters themselves. Star Wars: War of the Bounty Hunters #1 continues that. We get a bit more about Boba Fett and how he’s perceived. But, we also get that under the cool armor, he’s not always at the top of his game and can get tripped up. His reputation though, is one of a cool, calm, collected bounty hunter. He’s presented as one of the best.

Star Wars: War of the Bounty Hunters #1 is an entertaining comic in its focus on the Fett. But, it’s what’s added that’s surprising. We get an idea of who stole Solo from Fett before he could be delivered. The reveal is an interesting one folding in some Star Wars history and shows another example of how to mine such a vast history and still deliver something new that works. It’s an unexpected addition and one that potentially has a bit ramification for the Star Wars universe. Fans will be excited for this one.

The art is pretty solid. Luke Ross does a good job of depicting the various characters and the worlds. With Neeraj Menon on color and lettering by Travis Lanham it looks like the world of Star Wars. It’s both alien and familiar. The art isn’t completely smooth though. Boba Fett at times looks like he’s gained a bit of weight. It could be the angle but it’s a bit odd and definitely noticeable. Still, there’s a lot of characters packed into the issue and they’re all recognizable and look close to the real-world counterparts.

What’s also interesting is this isn’t a comic that has a ton of action. There’s definitely moments that punch but overall, the issue feels a bit more like a slow Western building up what’s to come. A lot of the comic is Boba being pissed as to what happened. There’s also the introduction to the mysterious group that stole Solo from him. It’s a lot of getting the ball rolling for the action to come.

Star Wars: War of the Bounty Hunters #1 is a solid start to the mini-series. The event overall is massive and it’ll be interesting to see how much one needs to read to really enjoy it. Hopefully, this main comic delivers the goods and now that all the players are on the board, we can really get to the action Boba Fett deserves.

Batman: The Adventures Continue Season Two #1 (DC Comics) – The Court of Owls enters the Batman animated world. Yes, please!

Star Wars: War of the Bounty Hunters #1 (Marvel) – The event features a lot of issues but we want to see what happened when Boba Fett attempted to deliver Han to Jabba.
