War of the Bounty Hunters continues to milk the Crimson Dawn auction/party for all it’s worth – though we’re not in attendance in this issue, our not-very-bright protagonists, Valance and Dengar, have only just found out about Han Solo’s location. Meanwhile, T’onga and Losha go on a mission to recruit a deadly gladiator.
We get a little bit of motivation for Dengar in this issue that humanises him somewhat, but other than that – and the diversion to T’onga and Losha’s mission, which features a familiar face in a slightly confusing situation that’s likely explained better in the other crossover tie-in issue that’s released this week – there’s not much that stands out about this issue at all. A trip to Canto Bight initially raises an eyebrow, but is just as dull as it is during our visit to the corrupt gambling haven in The Last Jedi.
Like most of the crossover so far, it’s an entertaining enough diversion and it’s put together pretty competently in terms of its writing and art, but it does feel inessential in the grand scheme of things; it seems as if the writer and artist are bored with turning in their part of the crossover – which they’ve had to take part in because editorial have mandated it.
