    The art in this book has been undertaken by a small army of artists and colorists, but it works well with Canto Bight, Jabba's Palace interior scenes, and Mos Eisley/Tatooine all rendered in slightly different styles. The art at the final few pages of the book with Jabba indulging in the Tusken Raiders' gift is especially good.That coupled with a concise fun tale meant that this issue ended up just like that last batch of Tusken Wind"priceless.

    I had a great time with this one-shot and if you like a good caper, I think you will too. Jabba the Hutt is considered one of the most dangerous gangsters in the galaxy and this is good proof of that. Read Full Review

    Thats right. Side by side. But these criticisms ultimately don't detract from a fun adventure. The issue has lots of goodies for Star Wars junkies. Fans of the sequels and the prequels will love the way it unites elements from across the saga. But the story also delivers quality time with the desert planet we fell in love with at first, even exploring new aspects of native Tatooine cultures along the way. So if you dig that Original Trilogy vibe, or if youre just a fan of scum and villainy, heres a great one-shot for you. Read Full Review

    Pak's tale of Jabba as a fixer is good enough, despite Jabba barely figuring into the story at all. Read Full Review

    While not the story I would tell if I got to write a Jabba story, Pak puts together a fun piece here that weaves a few different groups and locations together to show how Jabba is viewed, how he operates, and some of what makes Tatooine go around. It's a little convoluted at times but it connects well and has just an air of slapstick about it in some ways with the Imperial we spend time with. The look of the book is decent as it captures things well but it's definitely one of the looser books in terms of visuals and bringing this universe to life. Read Full Review

    "Star Wars: Age of Rebellion- Jabba the Hutt" continues the series' trend of providing a good one and done "Star Wars" story. Read Full Review

    The book was entertaining, yet those hoping to get an adventure totally focusing on the beloved character might feel disappointed. Read Full Review

    This is a Star Wars series and notone artist could be found to complete this issue? With all the talent out there, all the artists hungry to create, this was the best that could happen? Very disappointed, Marvel. This is a prime example of a book that should not have been solicited until it was completed — by one artist. And not having the title character in the majority of the book is a mistake. To paraphrase Ian Malcolm from Jurassic Park, “You do have a Hutt in your Jabba the Hutt comic?” This is only worth purchasing for the covers. A major disappointment. Read Full Review
