This team who is bringing us this bounty hunter series is brilliant! They are bringing us a side of Star Wars that I have always wanted to see. This first issue is full of action and it brings us character twists. The excellent storytelling and the off the charts artwork really elevates this comic series above others. This is going to be a wonderful comic series full of action, adventure, and mystery.
Writing

Charles Soule knows exactly what he is doing. He brings in characters that we are familiar with, but changes them in a wonderful way. Well, more so he truly expands on their character and makes us love them even more. and breathes new life into them. Even though we have been getting stories that are still in the realm of the main timeline, Soule knows how to make this storyline feel fresh and new. Even though I know how it is going to end, I am still enjoying it. Sometimes I even forget where it is going to end up πŸ˜… He really knows how to make an issue be full of adventure and still be able to fully tell the story.

You know, even the bubble work is pretty cool. I like when a character who speaks a different language talks, there are “<>” in the bubbles to show us the translation.
Artwork

Ross and Menon have a wonderful marriage in his issue. They are both able to make everything pop off the page. I really feel like I am in the Star Wars universe. After I read it I went back just so I can really appreciate all the artwork. Everything is so realistic it is mind blowing. I honestly forget that I am reading a comic. This is perfect enough to be on the big screen. Hopefully with the new Boba Fett series it will be similar to this. Anyway, like I said before, the details are outrageously stunning. The facial features are amazing and even the buildings are amazing. Ross and Menon really bring this comic to life.
Overall

This was such an exciting first issue of a new comic series. I was genuinely surprised with some of the plot twists. I really do think any Star Wars fan will enjoy this story. Boba still has is wonderful badassery.
