Boba Fett is dead, and whoever hired the hit squad had better run—as fast and as far as possible!

A mysterious avenger is on the trail of Boba Fett’s killers. Connor Freeman—a clone relation to Fett—has been drawn into the whodunit. Freeman, who feels like he could use some protection himself, has been recruited against his will to find and protect a particular bounty hunter on a distant world—in Mandalorian space!

    I'm loving this mini-series. It's been my first dive into Star Wars comics, and I couldn't think of a better way to dive right in. I loved finding out who the Stormtrooper is and his connection with Connor. There were a couple of really cool scenes here, including the history behind the Stormtrooper and the flight into Blackfel. Also, the art by Chris Scalf is amazing. Read Full Review

    I've said before I don't care for bounty hunters, and I'm not a fan of Fett. But this story has got me interested and the art gets me drooling. Another excellent outing from Dark Horse! Read Full Review

    As far as rating the entertainment value of a Star Wars mini series, Tom Taylor is definitely two for two. Read Full Review

    This mini is shaping up to be two stories and both are good. On the one hand you have a character just trying to stay out of trouble and can't and on the other you have a good, old-fashioned revenge story. You can't lose either way. The writing has a strong hold on the characters and the art brings them to life. This is a good comic book. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen May 30, 2012

    Unfortunately, Chris Scalf's painted art is far too uneven to truly do justice to the story. Some panels look fantastic, with a cinematic look and feel that screams Star Wars. More often, though, his figures either become loose and murky or stiff and robotic. Anatomy grows distorted and the overall sense of realism falls away. If Scalf could maintain a greater level of consistency in his visuals, this would truly be Star Wars comic to remember. Read Full Review

    The art is good and very detailed. The explosions are massive and jump off the page; although I do miss the days of comics being penned and inked and not digitally done. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - John Rose Jun 6, 2012

    Given the set up in the first comic it is likely that things will step back into swing in the third issue but this issue is probably going to be one where the reader feels a bit cheated out of their money and time when weighing this chapter by itself. Read Full Review
