STAR WARS : BOUNTY HUNTERS #1-6 (Ethan Sacks / Paolo Villanelli)

Marvel explorera les repaires des malandrins les plus infâmes dans une nouvelle série consacrée aux chasseurs de primes de la Saga des Etoiles.

Valance le Chasseur sera le personnage principal de ce nouveau titre et dans la première histoire imaginée par le scénariste Ethan Sacks (Star Wars : Galaxy’s Edge), le cyborg sera entraîné dans une mission vengeresse qui impliquera également Boba Fett, Bossk et une horde de nouveaux tueurs.

La partie graphique a été confiée à Paolo Villanelli (Star Wars : Lando).

Ethan Sacks :

“While the battle between the Rebellion and the Empire raged in the stars, the darker corners of the Star Wars universe belonged to the bounty hunters. And that’s always been a facet of the saga that’s fascinated me ever since I first witnessed that glorious murderers’ row take a bounty from Darth Vader aboard the Executor in a theater as a seven-year-old in 1980. I’m channeling that wonder from The Empire Strikes Back and beyond in Bounty Hunters , which will be a high-octane action romp through the Star Wars underworld of Hutts and Fetts.”

“We’ll get to see this world through the cybernetic eye of Valance, a bounty hunter with a rich history of his own at Marvel, and one of the few that can go toe to toe with the likes of Bossk. And rest assured that he’s going to have to be doing a lot of fighting as his jobs take him to some pretty dark places in both the Outer Rim and in his inner heart.”

Décidément, Valance a trouvé sa place.

Yep…comme quoi, il a marqué une génération de fans, celle qui l’a découvert dans la vieille série SW de Marvel. J’apprécie le fait que le nouvel Univers Etendu n’oublie pas ce qui a précédé et incorpore des éléments des anciennes continuités…

Oui, pareil.
Et l’alliance avec Boba Fett a un côté biscuit pour fans qui fait bien plaisir.

Rajoutons deux couvertures qui tapent bien, et ça annonce des trucs sympas.
