THE ULTIMATE FINALE! THE BIGGEST EVENT OF THE YEAR CHANGES THE FACE OF THE GALAXY!
Everything and everyone in the galaxy is against bounty hunter BOBA FETT, from Sith Lords to Hutt rulers to the mysterious CRIMSON DAWN.
He can't succeed. There's no way he can regain HAN SOLO, escape the bounties on his head, and survive to get his prize to JABBA THE HUTT and get paid. But HAN SOLO belongs to him, and no one will take him away.
With a shocker of an ending that sets up a revolutionary new status quo for STAR WARS COMICS! RATED T

BONUS REVIEW by Kevin Healy


This was nearly a seven, but the amount of overlap between the tie in titles AND the main series AND each other was about as cannibalizing as comics can get.

That said, the implausible task of squeezing an event in between Empire and Jedi has occurred, and it was better than Shadows Of The Empire. Luke Ross does adequate work here (he has on all of his Star Wars books) but he's no Steve McNiven. Charles Soule resorts to too many uses of scenarios and dialogue pulled from the movies, the single greatest downfall for a licensed book. (See his run on Darth Vader which does none of that for an example of what could be.) As a set up for...what's next...this DOES work, and is begrudgingly recommended. It just could have been so much better with some tweaks, some edits, and a freer set of creative hands. These feel a bit tied, and certainly tied-in.


I give it 6 out of 10 Grahams
