    Excellent bounty hunter scheming to kill Darth Vader! The story is exciting as the team makes their move to get Vader, encountering a surprising obstacle on the way. The visuals are hit and miss, with it hitting more often than not. I have got to see bounty hunter Urrr'k in her own series after she demonstrates what she can do in this issue. This is much better than I thought this series would be. I'm excited to read the next installment. Read Full Review

    Target Vader is a little loose at the start in acclimating the reader but it delves into things quickly enough and gets us on track with the story. Thompson has some good stuff moving around here and I like the bigger picture plan because it involves a lot of planning and less by the seat of your pants ideas when it comes to hunting the Emperor's executioner. Landini's a solid add on the art department but I would have been happy with most anyone after the disjointed first issue. The Landini is as solid and engaging as he is with the layouts and designs is just the icing on the cake. We're a third of the way into the run so it has plenty of room to expand and go wild but it's already delivered some good fun and has me interested in seeing just where the team will take it next.

    Art-wise there is a more cohesive feel to this issue with the artduties handled by only Stefano Landini this issue (last issue saw alarge cast of artists deployed). Both the art style and the unique colorwork from Neeraj Menon make this book stand out from the usualMarvel Star Wars mini-series aesthetic. Meanwhile the story is starting to kick into gear, although we have gotten very little Vaderin the two issues to date. That promises to turn around next issue,and in the meantime there is enough here to keep us entertained. Read Full Review

    A wretched hive of scum and villainy that may be more than anyone expected. Read Full Review

    The story of famous bounty hunters coming together to hunt Vader does move forward with this issue, but the ways in which the book is offering readers aliens who look familiar to every era of the film universe feels more like fan fiction than any sort of organic story deserving of its own series.
