    Harsh, action-heavy, and more than a little Zack Snyder-feeling in its tonal sensibilities, “Star Wars: Bounty Hunters” feels in more ways than one like a throwback to the gritty, “dude-bro” “Star Wars” comics of the 90s and early 2000s – and that’s not necessarily a bad thing. While series like “Darth Vader,” “Doctor Aphra,” and the mainline “Star Wars” lean heavily into the lore and character side of the galaxy far, far away, “Bounty Hunters” is more about the surface-level thrills, prioritizi Harsh, action-heavy, and more than a little Zack Snyder-feeling in its tonal sensibilities, “Star Wars: Bounty Hunters” feels in more ways than one like a throwback to the gritty, “dude-bro” “Star Wars” comics of the 90s and early 2000s – and that’s not necessarily a bad thing. While series like “Darth Vader,” “Doctor Aphra,” and the mainline “Star Wars” lean heavily into the lore and character side of the galaxy far, far away, “Bounty Hunters” is more about the surface-level thrills, prioritizing loud action, big explosions, and cool-looking bounty hunters over narrative depth or thematic resonance. It’s not exactly the deepest or most heartfelt comic on the stands, but for what it is – the comic equivalent of an 80s action movie – it works well enough. There’s plenty of room within “Star Wars” for all types of different stories, and “Bounty Hunters” offers more than enough easy fun and exciting spectacle to justify its existence.

    Good god, this was bad. Ethan Sacks is quickly growing to be my least favorite comic book author, and could very well replace the equally terrible Jodie Hauser.

Bounty Hunters is a mess from cover to cover. The story makes no sense because while it’s bouncing around from panel to panel with zero attempt at clarity, it’s also adding more and more confusing characters and backstories. Valance’s character is stupid. Boba Fett’s appearance is pointless. The mission is non sensical. It’s just all crap. Even the artwork, which is at least colorful, is drawn in such a way that it’s hard to follow or see exactly what’s going on. This is gonna be a one and done series for me. I thought it would be nice to take a break from the main plot lines of Star Wars, replacing Jedi with bounty hunters and criminals. How wrong I was.

    Following some side characters (who I believe used to be in the original Marvel Star Wars books?), this new series looks at how one fateful event sets a group of bounty hunters on a collision course for one another many years after their last meeting.

I wasn't familiar with any of these characters (aside from Boba Fett, and even that's just in passing), but I did enjoy getting to know them. The main character seems to be Valance, although the blurb of the book seems to imply that Bossk and Fett would be playing more supporting roles although they're not in it as much as he is. The plot twists and turns through flashbacks and a few different characters until they all come together in the fifth issue and the secrets are revealed. The conclusion feels very Mandalorian, but it has potential for something more depending on where the story goes next. There's a lot of bombastic action, with at least one splash page per issue, ably penciled by Paolo Villanelli. His faces are sometimes a little lacking in detail, but the choreography is really well done and his backgrounds always feel super detailed. I wasn't overly sold on the premise of the series, and it can be a bit unfocused at times with a lot of characters moving around, but it all comes together by the end so I'm hopeful for an uptick going forward, and I'm definitely intrigued enough to keep going.

Probably the worst Marvel Star Wars comic since the relaunch. Valance is an extremely boring character that cannot carry a book. He is also a rip-off of so many cyborg-esque characters from the early 90s with built in weapons and increased strength. The book jumps between time periods and characters at a break neck pace with little explanation of who these people are and where the story is at. There are a handful of good battle scenes but that is about it. Stay away from this book unless you devour anything and everything Star Wars. And even then, wait until you find a bargain.

    4/5 stars My first finished book of 2021 was, thankfully, a really pleasant surprise. I knew I was going to enjoy it. It's STAR WARS, after all, and damned if I don't at least have a pleasant time with everything in this series (yes, even the sequel trilogy.

It's STAR WARS, after all, and damned if I don't at least have a pleasant time with everything in this series (yes, even the sequel trilogy. Not particularly good, but it was more star wars, and they had some epic battles). Nevertheless, I really enjoyed this story, moreso than I could have reasonably expected. With that said, let's get the negatives out of the way. The plot is a bit round-about, convoluted at times. What seems initially straight forward, a group of bounty hunters individually trying to track down a known Bounty Hunter traitor named Nakano Lash, does end up bouncing around perspectives; holding some information back just to obviously surprise the reader at a later point; and some of the character motivations weren't particularly clear. Ooris, one of the new bounty hunters especially, felt like he was rather one-sided, if not partially unnecessary to the plot. I feel like he could have been any bounty hunter who'd managed to track down Lash, but instead he just seems like an odd member of this cast. Now for the positives, and there are a bunch. Overlooking the somewhat convoluted plot, what was there and understandable was really interesting. Delving deeper into the world of crime in the STAR WARS galaxy is something I haven't really done unless it was a side bar in another story, so getting to see how these GAME OF THRONES style kingdoms/crime cartels operate was really interesting. I could have seen more of them, but I expect to in later volumes of this series. I was also just genuinely surprised at how deep the plot was. A bit overacted for a comic in terms of character visuals and dialogue, but still rather deep and interesting, delving into why these character care so deeply (or hate so deeply) one another. The flashback sequences were gold, giving us equal parts heartfelt, character-building moments and action packed battles. Speaking of characters, the main cast itself was really incredibly well explored. Beilert Valance Was the biggest stand-out. I love characters in this canon that have explored multiple sides of the universe. Valance was a former Imperial pilot before he was shot down, nearly dying and having almost 90% of his body replaced with cybernetics. Cast aside by the empire, he is deeply wounded as a person, and we get to see all sides of his internal struggle which is great. Sure, he comes off as the unnecessarily grumbly jerk for a lot of the volume, but you understand where it comes from. I also really enjoyed the dynamic with Nakano Lash. To dig deeper into this would fall under spoiler territory, but I'll just say that while Lash isn't on the page very long, we do get a really interesting look at her personality and character that I really appreciate. I also want to mention Bossk and Boba Fett, both of whom play big parts throughout this volume. I do feel that Bossk was underused a bit, though this is a minor complaint. I was expecting the typical team-up trope where he and Beilert would battle each other only to team up in the end and find the "evil" bounty hunter, but that wasn't the case at all. They just fight, Bossk being the savage, uncompromising monster that he is, and I really, really adored that change of pace. Again, a little more time on page wouldn't have hurt, but I can't complain about the execution. Boba Fett was also similarly well-played. While not on the page almost at all, I really loved that every single time he was just a total badass, tearing through enemies without a worry. He had just enough motivation (i.e. revenge) to stand out in this issue, and man was it just fun to see him go up against everybody in this volume. 2020 was truly the renaissance of Boba Fett, and I am here for it! Overall, this is a really fun issue, one that felt like dumping out my action figures and slamming together in mock battles. while a bit convoluted, the plot was decently well-structured and led to some fantastic character moments throughout. I can't wait to see where this series goes from here!

Now, Nakano Lash has resurfaced and there are many people after her. Beilert Valance has his own reasons for wanting to find Lash, and Valance finds himself up against the most dangerous hunters in the galaxy. The race is on and Valance might not get to Lash in time. Written by Ethan Sacks, Star Wars: Bounty Hunters Volume 1: Galaxy’s Deadliest is a Star Wars science-fiction comic book spin-off title. The series features art by Paolo Villanelli. The bounty hunters were some of my favorite toys to play with as a kid. Why play with Luke and Leia when you can play with Boba Fett, IG-88, Dengar, Bossk, and even Zuckuss in his weird pleather costume. The most characters were enigmas with no backstory and just a cameo in Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back which was essentially to introduce Boba Fett…Star Wars: Bounty Hunters gives the characters a chance to shine. The story features a major throwback in Beilert Valance. Valance initially was part of the Marvel Star Wars universe before it went to Dark Horse Comics. Also known as “the Hunter”, Valance was a combination of the Terminator and Cable. The humanoid assassin has an unstoppable side. Valance resurfaced in the new Marvel Star Wars universe in Solo: A Star Wars Story adaptation and begun to pop up in other locations. Here, Valance is essentially the lead bounty hunter character which might disappoint some who hoped to have a solo Boba Fett series or for the series to focus on some of the other original Bounty Hunters. Unfortunately for that idea, Boba Fett has too many stories wrapped around him and many of the original bounty hunters were too one dimensional. Valance makes a much more logical choice. A year ago, the story for Star Wars: Bounty Hunters 1: Galaxy’s Deadliest would have felt more original, but the arrival of The Mandalorian—Season 1 in 2019 opened up the bounty hunter’s world and began expanding upon their mythos. With the Mandalorian featuring a bounty hunter protecting a child, the end of this volume feels a bit redundant…but the trained Cadeliah might end up being more of a “Short-Round” type character from Indiana Jones and Temple of Doom or even Ezra Bridger from Star Wars Rebels. While The Mandalorian comes off as a Lone Wolf and Cub adaptation, Bounty Hunters might be something else…it remains to be seen, and that is the fun of the series. Most of the primary bounty hunters from Empire Strikes Back have appeared in other comics and TV series since their first appearance and some of them have had background added…but Star Wars: Bounty Hunters is a nice slick package to re-explore some of these characters and really give them personas. I look forward to seeing where Star Wars: Bounty Hunters goes…and let the “scum” finally get their day!

    Full disclosure - I've never been a big fan of the bounty hunting side of things in Star Wars. Boba Fett makes for a perfect action figure as a kid, just like Bossk and all the others. But as characters, I couldn't really care less. With the Mandalorian being so popular, it makes sense that Lucasfilm would want to put more focus on bounty hunters... But so far, this book really hasn't changed my mind. The story is a bit of a mess, jumping back and forth in time at a breakneck pace.

But so far, this book really hasn't changed my mind. The story is a bit of a mess, jumping back and forth in time at a breakneck pace. By around the fourth issue, it starts to come together, but by then it's a little late. Worse still, the lead characters are pretty dull. There's nothing to latch on to in them, so the story has no real stakes. It's just a big shoot 'em up, which - granted - can sometimes be fun. The main saving grace is the artwork from Paolo Villanelli, who knocks it out of the park. This book is five straight issues of near-nonstop action, and he nails it. It's simply a beauty to look at. Great character designs, kinetic layouts, and explosive action. If you're going to write a book that's all style and little substance, you might as well get an artist with a ton of style. Long story short - check this out for the art. But if you want a nuanced and clever story about bounty hunters, you're not going to find it here.

    This is a weird one. The core mystery in this narrative was enough to keep me hooked and while the payoff was slight, it didn’t feel like it was forcing an internal homage of the SW universe. This is a strange, overly talkative portrayal of both Bossk and Boba Fett, but for former pulls it off way better. Valance is pretty blank as a character and not all that engaging.

I did see some reviews commenting on the disarray in the art style, but other than maybe three transitions across the whole five issues, I could follow and understand the action. This probably earns more of a 3.5 but I was fine edging it higher given I just got done reading the most recent Vader collection and felt that was awful. I’m starting to think that after all the Star Wars content I’ve consumed, I’m just not lining up with the prequel apologists and wanting new stories that don’t feel compelled to keep running around with the same cast from the films. It’s a big galaxy. I’d like to see more it.

    Homing in on the time between ESB and ROTJ, this iteration of Bounty Hunters has quite a lot to say about not only Bossk and Boba Fett, but also Valance (previously established in comics) and Nakano Lash, a Twilek who is essential to the story. The basic tale is that the group of bounty hunters were together on a job, and some crazy stuff happened, involving Lash "betraying" the group. Years later, when Lash finally appears back on the radar, Valance, Fett, and Bossk all make for her.

As Lash dies, Valance swears to protect the girl. Overall, I didn't like the back and forth jumps through time, but the story ended up panning out by the end. Hope the next Volume is better.

    The story line was, between the use of retrospective and constant switching between characters's pov, very chaotic to the point I had to go back through the pages numerous times to understand what's happening. The book is thinner than my other Star Wars Marvel books which is a pity, too. I'm giving it an extra star for being visually very pleasing.

    I was not into this. Some familiar Star Wars faces show up but it never really felt like Star Wars. There is nothing about the story that makes me excited about following the exploits of badass bounty hunters so it kind of comes across like a wasted opportunity. It really is unfortunate because the star wars universe has so much to explore and this one doesn't really add much that I care about. I found myself kind of bored and looking to get to the end of each book which is a little bit sad beca I was not into this.

    Meh. This first story was a hot mess. Too many characters, the art is dodgy at best, and the story is constantly interrupted by flashbacks (which is the same reason I stopped watching Arrow), and there was no clear way, other than “blink-and-you’ll-miss-it” captions, to tell which was the main story and which were the flashbacks. I’ll give this series one more arc to prove itself worthy of my time.

    Oof. After Charles Soule's first Star Wars volume made me think maybe it was time to give Marvel Star Wars another go, this comes along. This is one of the least interesting Star Wars tales I have read in a really long time. The plot is a nonsensical mess that jumps all over the place, the characters are one-note and vapid. This book veers from boring into insulting to the reader and then right back towards boring. Don't think I see any reason to pick up the next volume of this one. Oof.

    It took a little while for "Bounty Hunters" to grow on me. Valance is not my favorite character, and the dialogue here is much terser than the perpetually heartbreaking or hilarious "Doctor Aphra." But by the end of this first arc, I was immersed. Valance still seems like he's SLIGHTLY derivative as a main character, but hey, it's Bounty Hunters, I'm gonna keep reading. It took a little while for "Bounty Hunters" to grow on me.

    More of a 3.5 stars than 4 from me. I would have preferred a more straightforward story featuring Boba Fett, Bossk and Valance. The new bounty hunters didn’t really move the needle for me. I thought the art was pretty good other than that it took me several panels to recognize Doctor Aphra.

    The story bounces back and forth too much and is very difficult to follow. Combined with a mediocre story and art that is too filling (giving no sense of atmosphere or setting) and I’d say pass on this one.
