In Review: Star Wars: Bounty Hunters (2020-) #17 LAST STAND

“LAST STAND” Severely wounded, VALANCE must make a desperate escape attempt from an Imperial Star Destroyer.

Synopsis: “LAST STAND” Severely wounded, VALANCE must make a desperate escape attempt from an Imperial Star Destroyer. Will T’ONGA and her crew reach him in time? Plus: A shocking twist that will leave the survivors’ lives forever altered!


The Story

Valance has made his last stand again Boba Fett on Darth Vaders Star Destroyer and has been defeated. His hopes of rescuing his friend Han Solo have been dashed. Now all he can do is try and escape, but can he make it past an army of Stormtroopers and get to the hanger bay in time to be rescued? T’ONGA and her crew are making best speed to rescue their friend from the Star Destroyer, but it is no easy task for them.


The Artwork

Much like with previous issues. Paolo Villanelli does an awesome job with the artwork. I particularly enjoyed the sequence where T’ONGA’s ship comes into contact with a rather by-the-book Tie Fighter pilot who is making ready to shoot them down.

The artwork that Paolo does for the twist ending in which Valance does not escape is absolutely awesome. Likewise, the sequence in which Zuckus tries to catch Valance while he tries to leap from the Star Destroyer felt very cinematic. I could almost see the scene playing out in my head in slow motion.



This was an awesome issue, which continues the story in a really satisfying way. I loved that Darth Vader has pretty much destroyed the Hutts, which has left a power vacuum, which Qi’ra and The Crimson Dawn plan to fill. Could there be a new spin-off comic in the works here?

Overall. A really strong issue, which opens up all sorts of story possibilities. I loved how this issue ends and can’t wait to see what will happen next and how that will link in with other parts of the universe.
