The huge 2021 Star Wars crossover – War of the Bounty Hunters – continues to lumber on, despite the main series reaching its underwhelming (and not very conclusive) climax a few weeks ago.
The publication schedule having been shifted has seen not just the final issue – which sets us up for what has now been revealed to be just the next crossover in a planned trilogy of them – released, but also other titles finally coming out, in an order which can best be described as inconsistent. It’s playing havoc with the character of Qi’ra, newly re-emerged head of crime syndicate Crimson Dawn, who seems to be popping up in all kinds of places at the moment.
Here, she turns up to speak to Leia aboard the Millennium Falcon, belatedly explaining her convoluted plan to save Han to the Rebel leader. Leia speaks for the reader when she exclaims, “you could have just given him to me.” Quite.
So the crossover is once again feeling as if it’s a completely convoluted mess that exists to a) bring Crimson Dawn back and b) set up numerous lucrative crossovers in the process. It’s telling that even the characters are tired of this shit.
