This Boba Fett Is Dead series is quickly becoming one of my favorites. Issue #3 picks up with Connor Freeman and Boba Fett both getting into a fight. The difference between the 2 though is quickly shown as Boba Fett picks the terms of his fights, he plans in advance and he quickly gets want he wants. Connor Freeman is caught off guard, and while he can hold his own he is just fighting to stay alive. I love that we get to see how smart and strategic Boba Fett really is. He takes on overwhelming odds and repeatedly wins.
There is a side character, Ailyn, who in one issue has become one of my favorites. She’s a young girl, but she holds her own in a fight and she has some of the best lines in the comic. Yet, at the same time she is still a little girl who has to go to bed when her Mom tells her and wants a bed time story. If they start a side comic with her as even a minor character in it I will not miss a single issue.
As the story progresses Boba Fett is able to get some of the information he has been hunting for about who it was that was trying to have him killed. Plus, Connor realize just how much trouble he is in. We also get a glimpse at our bad guy who is getting ready to come our of hiding. All of this looks to be leading to a great conclusion to the Boba Fett Is Dead series in issue #4. I suspect it will have more great battles and dialog. Personally I’m going to be sad to see it come to an end, but I’m still looking forward to seeing hwo things get wrapped up.
