I am reviewing Star Wars: Bounty Hunters ISBN 1569714673 which was published in Sept 2000, printed in Canada.
It collects the comics called -
Star wars: Bounty Hunters - Aurra Sing and is story 1. Good story, pencils and ink -grade = 3.5
Star wars: Bounty Hunters - Scoundrels Wages and is story 2. This wasn't bad except that Lando looked like a black Geraldo rivera or the late sammy davis, Jr. Maybe Mel rubi was to busy to bothering finding out what lando looks like, but surely DH pays editors to assume some responsibility for quality control. Given that the story and inking were above average, you'd think someone would have cared if the pencil work was subpar. 2 stars.
Boba Fett - Twin Engines of destruction and is story 3. What a shame that the pencils and inking here were on par with a newpaper comic strip. I complained about the art in story 2, but the inking And coloring were rich and visually strong. The effort here was on par with that done in THE EARLY ADVENTURES - ranging from mediocre to good. Some pages are brilliantly done. Some are lazily done and other pages were washed out.
Star wars: Bounty Hunters - Kenix Kil and is story 4. The art, penciling and ink are pretty good here, there is a richness and detail that here accommodate for the darkness in which the story is drawn and colored. An interesting story of a character we see elsewhere in the DH EU.
My version has a completely different cover than the one shown by amazon. But the Darkhorse site is showing the same one that I have. Either way, if amazon has this one in new or used, it is a worthwhile read. The art and writing is a mixed bag, as this TPB is drawn from 4 different comics.

Format: Paperback
The Bounty Hunters was an above average graphic novel. each story differed greatly from each other, so I'll review each one seperately.

Aurra Sing by Timothy Truman (3 stars)

Aurra Sing was ok, but could have had better art. It also felt as if Truman didn't plan before he wrote, he just wrote. An example of this is an organization called the Ffib. What a name.

Scoundrel's Wages by Mark Schultz (4 stars)

This was problably the second best story in this graphic novel. It's about Lando getting "arrested" by a Hutt and made to take part in a hunt, him being the prey. A good story, but bad art. Lando had an enormous beard one one page, but then a small one on the next. He also looked nothing like his movie counterpart.

Boba Fett: Twin Engines of Destruction(TEOD) by Andy Mangels (4 stars)

The best short in this collection, TEOD featured Boba Fett going after Jodo Kast, a bounty hunter pretending to be him to get the big bounties. Another good story wasted over the art. I frequently had to try looking at this from another angle due to the fact that I had no idea what the picture was of.

Kenix Kil by Randy Stradley (2 stars)

Another wasted effort. This supposedly takes place before Crimson Empire 1 or 2, which makes no sense, as Kanos looks really old. The main plot is Kir Kanos is running from bounty hunters and he disguises himself as one to hide. Finally, a story with good art. But the story is bad. The worst of the bunch.

Format: Paperback
Want a guide to the notoriously infamous benefactors feeding off the rage of others, dealing exclusively with an eclectic montage of bounty hunters from all species and all walks of life? Well, this just be the book for you then. It pits not on the popular into a world of hunting and trying to survive, but it also sports newcomers as well, introducing its reader to why these faces are revered as some of the most successful seekers in the business. First there's the lovely Aurra Sing, Jedi-hunter extraordinare, capable of capturing the most elusive prey in the best and worst of conditions. In fact, she makes a great deal of sport out of it, finding herself capable of outwitting even the most dangerous proponents. This is something she finds herself entwined in now, the calling card of the face she seeks taking her to Endor and beyond. Switching gears, see how Bossk, Dengar, and 4-Lom work into the plans of Quaffag the Hutt as he decides to deal once and for all with Lando Calrissian while playing games that Hutts are known to play. Then its off to see the most reviled of the feared in action, with Boba Fett finding himself needing to take out a little trash by the name of Jodo Kast; a bounty hunter who thinks that he's in the same league as the man with the Mandalorian armor. Lastly, we join Kenix Kil as he makes his way through the remnants of the empire disguised as a bounty hunter, the last of the Imperial Guard left in circulation and one of the most dangerous men alive, still loyal to his oath of destroying all those enemies of the Empire years after the Emperor's departure.
All the stories collected within these pages are good despite being short, with Aurra Sing, Boba Fett: Twin Engines of Destruction, and Kenix Kil rating within the praiseable ranks.
