    Overall, this was a phenomenal first jump into cross-franchise crossovers for Star Wars; they've done crossovers before, but this was the first one on the same scale as Marvel's own Earth-616 crossovers. It wasn't perfect all the time, but it still felt extremely connected in the best ways, and none of the four ongoing series were negatively affected. On top of that, it actually feels like you could read just this series and have all the context you need, which isn't always the case for these crossovers. Combine that with the god-tier writing of Soule and the god-tier art from Luke Ross, and you get one of the best Star Wars comics of recent years! Read Full Review

    This issue is so much incredible fun that it lifts this entirely crossover. It also makes one wish that some of this action could have been more spread out over the slower middle issues of the crossover. Hopefully we get more of this high action in the next arc rather than a return to the more claustrophobic setting we saw for much of this one. That being said this book holds so much promise for the future of Star Wars comics. Read Full Review

    I would still consider getting this particular one as a trade paperback myself as it has such a lot of action in it and hopefully it comes up in things such as the Book of Boba Fett and other film projects in the future. Read Full Review

    With the "War of the Bounty Hunters" coming to an end, the biggest and most exciting reveal, that Qi'ra was running Crimson Dawn and colliding with the Revel Alliance during the time of the original trilogy, will still serve as the higlight, which was revealed all the way back in the debut issue. In this regard, the overall narrative was somewhat underwhelming, especially given that none of the tie-in issues were especially enlightening, though devout bounty hunter fans will surely have appreciated all the action and excitement of these supporting characters coming to the forefront.

    Although the conclusion was already known going into the finale, there were still some exciting parts here that set up future Star Wars series. Reading through this issue I was curious as to what may have happened to the Hutt Council, Bokku specifically as he seemed to be in charge. Then found that Vader destroys the Council because of their attack on the Executor. It is surprising to me that Jabba would maintain his loyal relationship with the empire after the destruction of the council. I guess there was not really much else they could have done given that you can not change the original trilogy and the relationship between Jabba and the Empire as portrayed in the films. I am bummed that Fett would turn on Valence so suddenly. I thought t more
