Blood Ties – Boba Fett is Dead #4

From the moment you pick up this issue, with Chris Scalf’s intimidating cover, one thing is very clear:  Boba Fett is very much alive, and nothing will stand in his way for revenge against those who tried to kill him.

For Connor Freeman, Boba Fett’s unwilling partner, things may have just gotten a lot more complicated.  His supposed safe house has just become the bullseye in the plot against Boba Fett.

Tom Taylor’s writing helps to build the tension as the issue, and the series, build to the finale. Chris Scalf’s art adds a layer of claustrophobia as Freeman realizes how much danger he is in, both from the outside and from who he is with. One wrong step could mean death from the killers or from Fett himself.

Fett fans will find a lot to enjoy here. The finale shows him doing what he does best, but it also shows how intelligent he is and that he can think and talk himself out of a situation just as easily as shoot his way out. We also get hints at the honorable side of Fett, and the sacrifices he will make for those few he truly cares for.

This issue wraps up with a great little exchange that could only really happen between two people who share cloned DNA, and the unique outlook that gives them.
