    Nerd Initiative

    This is a visually stunning masterpiece as we get to witness Jedi vs. one of the most feared Bounty Hunters in all of the Star Wars lore. Familiar names appear leading us to have our “pop” moments while introducing fun and goofy cannon fodder for the Jedi to destroy. All in all a very fun read.

    Jedi Quinlan Vos and bounty hunter Cad Bane collide on a planet full of other bounty hunters, which forces them to but their opposing combat techniques to the test, while also attempting to outsmart one another. Admittedly, the actual narrative of this issue ultimately feels unimportant, especially given that this series delivers readers standalone stories, but even if the storyline isn’t exceptional, it’s the action that really shines. Vos might not have the built-in notoriety as a figure like Cad Bane, and even those who aren’t familiar with Star Wars: The Clone Wars might not be as familiar with the figure, yet that doesn’t detract from the kinetic action of their collision. Bane uses not only his firepower, but also his unlikely allies to confront Vos, only for the Jedi to appeal to his threats’ sense of greed. For all intents and purposes, this could have been any nameless Jedi or bounty hunter and the engaging and kinetic energy of Nick Brokenshire’s art would still make it a book worth checking out.

    The Fandom Post

    Fans of this era of storytelling and these characters get something that’s definitely a lot of fun. Moreci handle the voice and style of them well while Brokenshire’s artwork is fantastic in feeling like it’s distinctive but also capturing a bit of that animation feel at times with some of its angular elements. And we get a lot going on int he backgrounds so that it doesn’t feel like we’re getting something simple and minimal here. The end result is a story that delivers well for fans of these characters but are also quite accessible if you’ve never heard of any of them or just have some passing knowledge from the recent live-action shows. It’s a lot of fun with some solid pacing and good dialogue that keeps it from being a super fast read.

    SWNN - Star Wars News Net

    Hyperspace Stories #9 is worth picking up for the art alone. The colors, penciling, and ink work is great to look at, even if it may not be everyone’s “cup of tea.” And for those who are fans of Quinlan Vos or Cad Bane, their involvement is fun enough that fans will enjoy the quick read. But for those who haven’t been collecting the series from the start, or for those who aren’t that interested in these characters, this issue may not be very appealing.
