    This was a fantastic issue that gives us some interesting insight into Zuckuss’s people and their ways. I loved how the hallucinations that Zuckuss has mirror the life and death struggle that he is going through while 4-LOM is doing all he can to save his friend. Additionally, I also love that we have Valance back with the group as his ongoing conflict with Bossk is just so much fun to see.

    While any meaningful material with Inferno Squad is delayed until the next issue, what we do get here works well in showcasing the tension aboard the Edgehawk that T’onga is trying to manage. But it’s also quite clear about who Zuckuss is with this pretty solid flashback. I had fun with the action figure when it was first released in the 80s but never came up with any kind of backstory for him. What we’ve seen in this series has been largely weak and uninteresting to me, but this story helps to make him a bit more interesting and his species as well. The concept and structure is pretty standard but the execution is what makes it work, especially with the great artwork from Miracolo. Definitely a good installment that has me curious to see what’s next as we go into the final run of issues.

    Issue #32 is a weird one, and not for the reasons you might think. The story picks right back up with the level of depth we’ve come to expect from Ethan Sacks and company. It’s an interesting issue because this issue takes place after Hidden Empire #5, an issue that hasn’t even been released yet. While the ramifications are kept vague, every indication is pointing to the end of Qi’ra’s saga being only the beginning for the galaxy.

    After rescuing Valance from certain doom, our bounty hunters are on the run from Inferno Squad, though a bizarre Force wave of energy unlocks something deep within Zuckuss that threatens not just his life, but that of the entire crew. Even though this issue does very little to move the narrative forward, as a majority of the book is just Valance piloting a ship through an asteroid field in attempts to lose Inferno Squad, we’ve given a significant glimpse into Zuckuss’ history that is more exciting than most of the recent installment in Star Wars: Bounty Hunters. It’s unclear at this point if this flashback will make the present-day storyline any more fascinating or if this was merely an opportunity to add more layers to the bounty hunter, yet even just being given an interesting story about a primal warrior taking on a massive monster is at least somewhat entertaining, so there’s no complaints from the reader on this standalone experience. What this means for the future of Bounty Hunters, however, is yet to be seen, though if this narrative arc finally finds ways to make us connect with the figures we’ve been spending time with for years, it could all be worth it.

    Is good to see another Zuckuss story again as I thought the 4-LOM and Zuckuss one-shot a while back was one of the better ones that they did. The story was like another mini storyline inside of the main one and then it goes back to the main story with 4-LOM saying he remembered something Zuckuss told him once about his home planet.

    I am not sure where this one sits within the Hidden Empire storyline as it is still in the stage of crossing over with it quite annoyingly so there some things that need to be resolved there. It finishes definitively when Valance dies but he has “died” several times in the course of this series so we shall see.

    Well if you are still on board for this series at this point you may as well keep going. I do not know how you would get into it at this stage if you are just reading it new.
