Years ago, VALANCE and fellow bounty hunters BOSSK and BOBA FETT took on a mission that went sideways in a bad way after Valance's mentor, NAKANO LASH, violently betrayed them. Valance's team barely escaped with their lives. He never thought he'd face his old mentor ever again...until Lash finally resurfaces under mysterious circumstances. Every bounty hunter in the galaxy wants a piece and Valance is hell-bent on getting to the prize first. He has score to settle-but so does Boba Fett!

    STAR WARS: Bounty Hunters #1 is a perfect tie-in to The Empire Strikes Back that pairs well with The Mandalorian. I highly recommended this book for any Star Wars fan. Read Full Review

    As with the current Star Wars, and Vader comic, Bounty Hunters takes a huge gamble/risk in tackling the period of time that starts literally as soon as The Empire Strikes Back ends. Ethan Sacks does a masterful job of introducing our cast while planting the seeds of what looks to be a thrilling story. Why can't we get a double ship on the Star Wars books?!?!? Read Full Review

    But unlike the other hunters, she hints at what the bounty is: Nakano Lash has finally resurfaced after the job she botched years ago, and everyone with a grudge against her is after her. The final segment is of Boba Fett finding out about the bounty; He turns the Slave I around, having been on the way to deliver Han Solo in carbonite! That's right, we see Han himself, in all his carbonite glory! And that's where the issue ends... I really loved this issue. It was a bit confusing at first, but once i realized what was going on, I got so into it. I've never been a huge fan of Valance as a character, but this series has the potential to make me love him, depending on where it goes. I'm super-invested in what's going on with Nakano Lash and whatever happened on the botched job on Corellia. Sacks' writing was super-engaging, and I love Paolo Villanelli's really energetic art style. I can't wait for the next issue! Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Mar 10, 2020

    This is a good first issue. There is a great deal of purpose to this book thanks to a few different connections, all the while delivering a bounty hunter action narrative that's easy to enjoy. I doubt anyone not well versed in Star Wars is going to enjoy this half as much as longtime fans, but really, these comics aren't for those kinds of fans! Read Full Review

    The dialog was done very well and definitely had some interesting interactions between the various Hunters. The artwork was spectacular it was definitely a sight to see, especially when it came to the action portions. Personally some of the action frames made the dialog a little confusing however overall it was solid. If the Bounty Hunters have a special place in your fandom pick up this title. Read Full Review

    This is one story you may need to get access to a galaxy map to work out where the planets are as they jump around a lot even in this story. Read Full Review

    The current ongoing Star Wars titles set a high standard. Several have become must-reads for me as a Star Wars fan. I dont know if this book will do that, but Im sure it will be a fun ride. Read Full Review

    The book is off to a good start for bounty hunter fans, but offers little to convince non-fans that this won't be your average mercenary mission. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Forrest C. Helvie Mar 10, 2020

    Overall, Star Wars: Bounty Hunters #1 won't necessarily be the next big thing for Marvel Comics; however, it provides readers with something familiar, akin to comic book comfort food " nothing new, but tried and true. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Joe Skonce Mar 12, 2020

    Star Wars: Bounty Hunters #1 attempts to do too much in a single issue, it is too spread out to be really satisfying. Read Full Review
