War OF The Bounty Hunters: Star Wars #13 by Soule, Rosanas & Rosenberg

The first wave of Preludes are here for War Of The Bounty Hunters. IT's tricky with these type of events because if you haven't been reading this series regularly. This book ties closely with the events in WOTBH Alpha. It involves Luke, Chewie and the Droids following a lead to Han through a report on Boba Fett.

I loved the humor between the Droids in this book, also the reunion between Chewbacca and Sagwa a Wookiee Chewbacca rescued from Solo a Star Wars story.

There is also some great scenes showing Luke advancing in his Jedi training in this issue as well.

A nice read showing all the different players moving into a show down with Boba Fett.

War Of The Bounty Hunters: Alpha

Ultimate Comics Variant Cover

I have had comic event fatigue for some time. But I can't resist Boba Fett!  I also was really drawn in by the passion Charles Soule has for this event. and his Star Wars books are some of my favorite of the new canon.  The series kicks off in this Issue Alpha where we see Boba on his way to deliver the frozen Han Solo to Jabba. 

One of the things that the new canon comics has accomplished has been filling in the adventures of our favorite characters between films. This issue does that wonderfully. Boba has to make a side trip as the carbon freeze unit Han is occupying malfunctions. The credits needed to repair it bring Boba to sign up in a gladiatorial battle  and a cool outfit change.

After this one issue I am fully onboard for the entire series. It's fun, full of action and some really fantastic art. It's the kind of crossover that is sure to be full of surprises and I'm really looking forward to seeing it unfold.

I also have become addicted to the various variant covers being offered for this series, I've ordered at least 5 so far! This is going to be a great ride so start reading now! 

SW Book Chat 30: The High Republic Issue 5 by Scott, Anindito, & Morales

This initial ARC of the High Republic has been filled with thrills and chills. In this issue we see the stakes are even higher as the Drengir threat spreads across the galaxy. The fate of the battle however lies with Skeeve and Sskeer. I'm really loving this series, the art is fantastic and there are many elements of Horror in the story. I love the cast of characters and the cameos from other characters in the High Republic stories. 

I'm really looking forward to seeing how future arcs in this series unfold.
