BobaFett Boba Fett - Murder Most Foul
Story: John Wagner
Art: Cam Kennedy
Editor: Bob Cooper

Summary

Gorga the Hutt is feuding with his father-in-law Orko and hires Fett to kill him. When Gorga learns that his wife is pregnant and that anything upsetting might threaten the Huttlet, he wants to stop Fett. Not intending to be an assassin, Fett breaks into Orko's lair with non-lethal force to explain to Orko that his life is in danger and to offer protection services. That night, Orko is killed by Ry-Kooda (who we see escaped his death in "Boba Fett: When the Fat Lady Sings"). Intent on revenge Ry-Kooda and his side-kick go after Gorga and his wife, when Fett intervenes and blasts Ry-Kooda to pieces. Gorga and his wife are reconciled and the little side-kick vows revenge on Fett.


EnsViews Comic Review
Reviewed 08/25/97

Story
I am a firm believer that no SW character works better in comics than Boba Fett. He's the Batman of the SW universe. That's why this story is such a disappointment to me. I don't mind the less-serious style of the "Droids" and "Hutt" series, but Fett has too much gritty potential to use it here. This is not the Fett of "Twin Engines of Destruction"

The fans of the 1950s/60s Batman will enjoy this one. I didn't.

Art
If you've seen Kennedy's SW art before (Dark Empire), then you know what this looks like. It's fine, but it's not his best. Perhaps it's because I didn't care for the tone of the book, but I think I've seen enough of this monotone art style in SW books.

Summary
I just didn't care for it. 2.5/10. Not recommended.
