•  Terrifying, implacable Dark Lord of the Sith DARTH VADER has laid claim to HAN SOLO, who is frozen in carbonite.
•  But the great, exalted JABBA THE HUTT also believes that Solo is his property. It's the galaxy's baddest gangster versus the Empire's most powerful enforcer, and neither is backing down.
•  BOBA FETT is caught between a Sith and a Hutt...and it's WINNER TAKE ALL.

    Not sure what else Bounty Hunters, Dr Aphra or Darth Vader would be able to add to this as everyone is pretty much in the same room or pretty close to it at this stage. If you were only going to get one War of the Bounty Hunters storyline comic this month you would get this one for sure. Read Full Review

    The art in this issue is very detailed. The emphasis on character expression and form are very connective. And the fight scenes are well done and interesting. Read Full Review

    Star Wars: War of the Bounty Hunters #3 is an excellent issue that progresses the overall storyline of the crossover to a pivotal point. There's plenty of action, character development, and intrigue that should satisfy any Star Wars fan. If you've been following this series, this issue is a "must-have." New readers will need to pick up issues 1 & 2 of Star Wars: War of the Bounty Hunters before reading this installment. That being said, in this reviewer's opinion, a new reader does NOT need to pick up all the "tie-ins" to follow and enjoy the main 5-part mini-series. Read Full Review

    Another great chapter in this event. It's gotta be hard to do a Star Wars event. You have to tell a compelling story without changing certain events and you have to "land" at one particular place. Hats off to Charles Soule and company for doing a really great job! Read Full Review

    The Qi'ra material is interesting but it's almost context-free here in where she learned to fight and hold her own against a Sith. That's for a future story to be sure, but it's just so out of the blue here that I'm not sure how to process it. Vader is impressed for the moment but since she has no Force abilities at all, well, she's not a real threat. Tie this into how Luke has started to learn about just how little he knows after facing Vader for the first time and Qi'ra is even more of a child in this regard. I like aspects of the fight but it just didn't connect right overall. Read Full Review

    Star Wars: War of the Bounty Hunters #3 serves as a fun way to experience all your favorite characters literally in the same space in a race to save Han Solo. This has been a pretty slowly paced event, but considering all the moving pieces it's impressive what it has pulled off. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Ellie J. Aug 26, 2021

    There's honestly not that much to talk about, since so little happens, and that's probably the biggest issue with it: it's too concerned with the crossover than moving the plot along. Soule's writing and Ross's art are incredible on both fronts, but there's just not enough. That said, I still recommend the issue, since it's great, but maybe wait a little bit until the next one is out too. Read Full Review

    Big Comic Page - Craig Neilson-Adams Aug 18, 2021

    However, while it's slightly disappointing to see Boba Fett effectively becoming a supporting character in what was marketed as his event, there are enough cool moments of excitement and fan service here to keep the pages turning. And, whether it's an intense exchange between Darth Vader and Jabba the Hutt or Boba Fett and Chewbacca going at it hand-to-hand, there should be something here to satisfy pretty much any self-respecting Star Wars fan.

  • 6.0 - Patrick Cavanaugh Aug 18, 2021

    While this issue isn't a full-on "war," as the series promises, this installment will likely appease fans who weren't as engaged by the series' exposition in previous issues, though this issue does little more than move the pieces forward slightly amidst the combat. Read Full Review
