JABBA NEVER FORGIVES! JABBA NEVER FORGETS!
JABBA THE HUTT is one of the most powerful and ruthless gangsters in the galaxy—and BOBA FETT, his most trusted bounty hunter, has failed him. How will Jabba deal with betrayal? VIOLENTLY. And what does this have to do with a bounty hunter with ties to the HIGH REPUBLIC? Justina Ireland and Luca Pizzari’s hutt-sized spectacular is the first 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.
The Comicbook DispatchStar Wars: War of the Bounty Hunters " Jabba The Hutt is not a must-read for those currently reading the "War of the Bounty Hunters" crossover event " but it is a fun one that is well worth the price of admission!
Comic WatchOn its own, a great comic. If you're reading the "War of the Bounty Hunters" crossover, it's even better!
The Fandom PostWith some noise being made prior to the installment being released about Deva Lempop, I can imagine she's going to show up in a number of places both in this storyline and after that. She's a solid character that can add some new dimensions to things, has a good design to her, and some connections that can be fun to watch play out. Ireland's script handles the back and forth well enough and it's operating slightly outside of the main storyline itself since the ground it covers was largely dealt with back at the very beginning, if not the prelude period. Still, it's a nice expansion on it and it further cements Crimson Dawn as the group to really watch here.
The Super Powered FancastThis issue combines detailed drawings with a color palette that changes depending on time frame and situation. The actions scenes are well done. And the focus on character expression and form helps to solidify the reader's engagement.
But Why Tho?Jabba The Hutt #1 brings some interesting elements to the tableperhaps helping tie together old media with new but nevertheless acting as a good tie-in with War Of The Bounty Hunters. Im sure well see more of Jabba down the line, but I definitely hope we see more of Deva in future tie-ins, at the very least.
ComicBook.comThis issue is entertaining enough, without question, though it feels more like a spin-off experience rather than something that factors directly into War of the Bounty Hunters, which brings with it some inherent disappointment.
