    This issue was really good. I wasn't really into the series at the start; the bounty hunters were all pretty boring (Except Valance and Dengar), and the flashbacks weren't very interesting. But this issue really kicked things up a notch, and I loved every page of it. The story is starting to lead up to Empire Ascendant (albiet without the Destination: Hoth banner that other Star Wars series are getting), and the art from the three artists is really good. I'm super-hyped for the final issue next month! Read Full Review

    Target Vader has one more round to go but it's not like we think Vader will get taken out or anything. I like the little twist at the end and am curious to see where it'll go. Though I'm a bit surprised it's as focused on Valance as it is here it does work out to explore more of his past thoroughly in order to setup why everything goes as badly as it does in his life. Vader's amusing in how he twists things to his own advantage on a regular basis. I like Valance more and more as the book goes on and am really curious as to what Vader's game is in the midst of all of this as well. Definitely a solid book throughout with some neat moments and good if frustrating artwork from a team of three. Read Full Review

    Whatever happens in the next issue, it will be tough to disappoint readers who have been on the journey this long and wonder who the toughest character in the Star Wars galaxy really is. Read Full Review

    I would recommend getting this if you want a self-contained story as part of a shorter story and dont want to commit to buying a lot of comics to follow the series. Read Full Review
