ZUCKUSS BATTLES 4-LOM! WAR OF THE BOUNTY HUNTERS TIE-IN!
Together, lethal droid 4-LOM and Gand Findsman Zuckuss make an unparalleled bounty hunting team. Yet a brutal battle with Boba Fett has divided them. Lost and alone on the crime-infested streets of Nar Shaddaa, Zuckuss faces down an utterly transformed 4-LOM…but why is his old friend out for blood? The answer may lie in the past, from an early mission that helped forge their formidable partnership. Daniel José Older and Kei Zama’s one-shot is the second of four action-packed “War of the Bounty Hunters” tie-ins about the criminal underworld’s most notorious hunters and scoundrels, all told by the best STAR WARS writers and illustrators in the galaxy.
Comic CrusadersThis issue fits well within the larger story even while telling an entire tale of its own. The characters are welcome and hopefully we get more time with them in many comics to come. Older is a welcome addition to the Marvel family, combining massive action with strong characterization, intrigue and a whole lot of heart.
The Comicbook DispatchStar Wars: War of the Bounty Hunters " 4-Lom & Zuckuss #1 is a fun read that I believe fans of the characters of Zuckuss and 4-Lom will enjoy. Star Wars fans who are not interested in these characters, and are only interested in the Star Wars: War of the Bounty Hunters main storyline should pass on this issue. New readers will probably be confused by this issue and should read the main Star Wars: War of the Bounty Hunters storyline first.
ComicBook.comThe setback to this book, however, is that its connection to the overall "War of the Bounty Hunters" event is tenuous, leading us to wish there was a Star Wars comic full of these standalone adventures of bounty hunters across the entire franchise.
Impulse GamerLots of great character designs in this one and interesting action scenes, well worth having a look at if you are already reading all the other entries in this series.
Comic WatchIf you like Star Wars, you're gonna like this issue. If you're not a Star Wars fan, browse this issue as it might not be for everybody.
Major SpoilersIt's a melodramatic story that feels like a spaghetti western in all the right ways, but still has some confusing bits that don't quite land. I like the basic bones of the story a lot.
