    I would recommend this one to people who even only have a passing interest in Star Wars and only saw the Mandalorian and enjoyed it and wanted to go into more of the universe. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett May 5, 2021

    As a long time fan of Star Wars, Star Wars: War of the Bounty Hunters Alpha is exactly the type of story I want to read. It expands upon the world we know adding to it and not discounting what has come before. It's additive. It's also a hell of a lot of fun with great action and humor with some fantastic pacing. Though it looks like this crossover event is pretty expansive, if it keeps up this quality, I'm going to wish it was even longer. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - NumidianPrime May 6, 2021

    Overall, it wasn't a bad way to start the crossover. I still had my criticisms of this issue and I'm still wary about how the rest of the event might go but it has earned my attention. I think there's the potential for some really good stories to come out of this and I hope those are fully explored. In the meantime, I'm looking forward to seeing where the next part of this story goes. Read Full Review
