Star Wars War of the Bounty Hunters 4-LOM & Zuckuss
In Star Wars: War of the Bounty Hunters – 4-LOM & Zuckuss, we find out right away that these two bounty hunters are (and always have been) a team. I pride myself as a pretty knowledgeable Star Wars fan, the only exception being the books. I don’t have time to read all the novels, due to my rabid love of comic books. Besides being quite surprised by this fact, I was also caught off-guard by the fact that the book isn’t really written in what you’d call “English.” No, no, it’s not one of those books written totally in an alien language that you can’t understand, it’s written in a shorthand (I guess you could say), that exists only in the mind of Zuckuss. While there’s not quite a language barrier, I will admit that it did interfere with my enjoyment of the story. I found myself having to read panels over and think, “What did he mean by that?” It’s an enjoyable story that’s great as a one-shot, but unfortunately between the dialogue of Zuckuss and the fact that it isn’t really a vital part of this storyline, I didn’t enjoy it as much as I could. Author Daniel Jose Older is a really good writer, this just wasn’t one of his finest issues.
Artist Kei Zama is a fun talent. Her enjoyment really shines through in her work and you can tell she’s having a great time drawing this issue. She grabs the bull by the horns and comes up with some very entertaining and unique new designs for some characters (for the millionth time – I don’t do spoilers!). I’d love to see her on some more Star Wars books in the future, and I think you will too.
