The Phantom Menace is inarguably the worst movie in the Star Wars series. So, it was odd that Darth Maul, one of the few enjoyable factors of that movie, was killed off and would not fight another day . . . or so we thought.

Dear Carl's Jr.,
When I first heard about your recent “Dress as Spider-Man and receive a free Grilled Cheese Bacon Burger” promotion, I was very excited. As a life-long fan of Spider-Man and an ingester of cheeseburgers, I felt like this promotion was made for me; however, I was extremely disappointed as my visit to Carl's Jr. took a turn for the worse.
The conclusion to Star Wars: Blood Ties—Boba Fett is Dead is here. In the interest of not spoiling the ending for anyone, this review will be kept short.
MINOR SPOILERS BELOW
The adventures of the greatest intergalactic bounty hunter continue in Star Wars: Blood Ties - Boba Fett is Dead #2. A discerning eye will notice that, since this story takes place shortly before A New Hope, it is quite obvious that Boba Fett is, indeed, not dead. We were left with many questions after last issue—the greatest being how could he have survived a blaster shot to the head? Thankfully, we get the answer in this issue; however, by the end we are still left with more questions.

Before I begin with my review, I feel the need to share a little bit about myself. Boba Fett has always been my favorite thing about Star Wars. When I was growing up and kids argued over who got to play Han Solo, I always called dibs on Boba Fett and even dressed up as the Mandalorian for multiple Halloweens.
Being the fan that I am, I was very excited when it was announced that there would be a sequel to the mini-series Star Wars: Blood Ties. For those of you who have not read the original one, I strongly recommend you pick it up (as well as another miniseries called Jango Fett: Open Season); however, I will give you a quick synopsis to catch you up.

Everyone has a favorite music album that will always hold a special place in his or her heart. Just think back to that first time you heard yours. No, seriously. Think about the first time you heard that album. I will wait…
It was all new. Even if it was a band you were familiar with, there was something different that really struck a chord with you. Don’t you wish that you could reclaim that experience - even just once?
My personal favorite album happens to be Green Day’s American Idiot, and, recently, I was able to re-experience it in a whole new way. For those of you who are unaware of the album, it is a rock opera that tells the story of Jesus of Suburbia as he embarks on a journey of self-discovery.
