In Review: Star Wars: Bounty Hunters (2020-) #26

THE SHOCKING ENDING TO THE BOUNTY HUNTERS' RAID ON THE VERMILLION!
BOUNTY HUNTERS

Picking up the story from where the last issue left off. T’onga has decided to go it alone and face Crimson Dawn on her own. Meanwhile, Losha is locked in a battle with Vukorah, but things take a decidedly nasty turn when Losha’s pet is fatally injured during her fight.

While all of this is happening Dengar finds himself on the receiving end for a change as some justice is served.

Back on the Vermillion T’onga comes face to face with Lady Qi’ra and finds out that her rescue attempt wasn’t really needed.

 

The Artwork

Paolo Villanelli does a brilliant job with the artwork. I particularly enjoyed how he illustrated the fight between Losha and Vukorah, which sees Losha’s pet get seriously hurt. The whole sequence of panels in which all of this happens is visually very dramatic. So much so that I found myself really feeling bad when Vukorah is forced into a situation that she did not want. A situation where she has to hurt an animal.

We also get a great series of panels that depict T’onga’s meeting with Lady Qi’ra, which ends up pretty much as I would expect it to end.

 

Overall

This issue of Bounty Hunters finally wraps up the storyline involving T’onga and Losha’s run-in with Crimson Dawn and sows some interesting seeds for future adventures. I really enjoyed seeing Dengar getting a little of what he deserved given that he has been a thorn in pretty much everyone’s side. I also found the segment with Valance and his ongoing storyline with the Empire. It will be interesting to see how he reacts when he finds out that the people he cares for have been killed.
