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. Rated T

BONUS REVIEW by Kevin Healy


If this had been 'Deva Lompop' instead of 'Jabba the Hutt', you'd be able to forgive how little Jabba is in it. Instead, its a cynical, strategic attempt to will a speculator character into existence. Based on the aftermarket pricing for the tiered variant, its worked.

Will we see Deva Lompop all over Marvel's SW universe now? We will. Will she end up with her own book ala Dr. Aphra? I'm guessing yes, once we're post Return of the Jedi. Do you need to know that the release date for this book is crazy late for where it fits into the War of the Bounty Hunters story? Yeah, you do, and its just one more thing that's wrong with it. Better art in the present day sequences, but Jabba remains a difficult character for comic artists not named AL Williamson to lock down.

What made Aphra work as a character was the way she was parceled in slowly, along with other characters who became fan favorites OVER TIME because they'd been built up. Deva Lompop is no Dr. Aphra.


I give it 4 out of 10 Grahams
