Star Wars: Blood Ties – Boba Fett Is Dead #2- Ah, Star Wars! The place where the hero almost always get his hand chopped off and turned into a cyborg. Of course in Conner Freeman’s case, it is a whole arm not just a hand but who cares about details right? As expected, Boba Fett is alive and well and got Freeman out of certain death. Tom Taylor got the characters and the mood just right and Chris Scalf again showcase his great talent. As for the little girl shown at the end, well this series is called “Blood Ties” right? Here’s hoping the answer is as interesting as I have in my mind.

Supercrooks #3- The fact that Mark Millar wrote Supercrooks as a shameless pitch to Hollywood is without doubt, however that does not mean this series can’t stand on its own. Millar’s attempt at a superhero “Ocean 11” goes into gear this issue as Bolt and his gang start the heist. Of course things don’t go according to plan when you are facing the most successful supervillain in the world. On this, Millar got it right by showing just how dangerous The Bastard truly is (even in the twilight of his years). Artist Leinil Yu’s clean background works very well with the story and together, the duo made Supercrooks a very good read.
