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.
Who is the powerful, mysterious man who ordered the hit on Boba Fett? Why did he want the Mandalorian dead? Who is this female bounty hunter that he ordered Connor to protect? Is Boba the father of her child? We have the answers to these questions to look forward to in the next issues.
If you need more incentive to pick up this issue, then just wait until Boba Fett’s method of infiltrating the Imperial planet Blackfel. He makes Han Solo’s plan of flying casually and using outdated codes boring by comparison. It is truly an action sequence that I wish had been included in the movies.
