Vader is the biggest bad dude there is but it’s cool to see a comic based on having him hunted by a team of bad dudes! This comic about Beilert Valance being hired by the mysterious Hidden Hand organization to hunt down the dark lord himself. There’s a really cool team of bounty hunter scum along for the ride and the adventure is some straight-up Star Wars craziness!
In the tradition of B2 Super Battle Droids and Cardo (that one Knight of Ren) Valance has a super awesome cyborg arm that can charge up and blast away like a Barret Wallace limit break!
The Broken Wing
I mean, of course, this cool bounty hunter dude has a cool bounty hunter ship but I do enjoy the design.
Look, it’s Dengar!
Good old Dengar joins up in this hunt and makes a great addition to the story!
Plus he gets punched!
The Hidden Hand
The mysterious underworld weapons dealers have some interesting connections.
Amongst the hunters is Urrr’k a mysterious Tusken sniper. She’s pretty mysterious but just the idea of a Tusken Sniper not shooting at podracers is fun.
As the action unfolds, we get glimpses into some of the hunters’ stories. Some of them are really cool windows into some cool character motivations!
Valance has some cool flashbacks to his homeworld and what happens to smaller mining planets under the control of the Empire.
Even Better the Second Time
No caption needed.
We Don’t Need Their Scum
This small action-packed, double-crossing, bounty hunting, Dengar punching adventure is a fun read and cool lead up to the forthcoming Bounty Hunter series coming this year from Marvel. I like when Star Wars stories dive into some newer characters we are less familiar with and I look forward to more adventures with Beilert Valance in all his arm cannon glory!
