Comic Review 135 // Star Wars: Boba Fett - Death, Lies and Treachery

I only just realized May the 4th was a few days out. I knew I had to a Star Wars Comic! This means I have to bump a Strontium Dog review back a week. When doing a Stars Wars comic there is only one character I enjoy reading at the moment, Boba Fett. We are basically trading one intergalactic bounty hunter for another. Read on and enjoy!

Written by John Wagner so I know we are in good hands. At 144 pages, it should be a straight-up read. Here is the official read-up:

Throughout the vast reaches of the galaxy—wherever fugitives meet or lawbreakers conspire—one name is always uttered in hushed tones... Some say he is a Mandalore warrior; others, that he merely wears the Mandalore battlesuit because of its unrivaled killing power. The truth is impossible to confirm, for none have seen the face that gazes with merciless eyes from within that battered helmet – none, at least, who have lived to tell the tale.

Collects Boba Fett: Bounty on Bar-Kooda, Boba Fett: When the Fat Lady Swings, and Boba Fett: Murder Most Foul.

Let us start with the obvious. I find it funny that Wagner writes Boba Fett and Judge Dredd, but it also makes perfect sense. Two characters who are expert shooters, both never take their helmets off, both are clones and both have a strong viewpoint of right and wrong,

The story sees Boba Fett hired by the Hutt clan to do some classic bounty hunter jobs ie. Assassination and if possible some search and rescue. In classic Wagner styling, he brings some comedic relief to the Star Wars universe. Whilst the artwork of Cam Kennedy makes for some strange-looking villains. As with a lot of Star Wars stories, the actual tale is pretty straightforward and generic. We all know Boba Fett isn't going to die so at no point do you feel like he is in danger which is a shame. But we do get plenty of action, gunfights, and violence. It's classic sci-fi bounty hunting at its best. Well worth the read for some light enjoyment. Have an amazing May the 4th, Revenge of the Fifth and This is the May.
