Bounty Hunters ended on Jan. 17 with issue #42. It Marked more than four years of stories in the seedy underbelly of the Star Wars galaxy and all of them were written by Ethan Sacks, from the first preview in Empire Ascendent back in December 2019 to the final issue of the series.

We broke down how the series came about, its high (and low) points and how Sacks and Paolo Villanelli (artist on 31 issues) worked in lockstep to elevate Beilert Valance and the bounty-hunting crew to an elevated status in Star Wars as a whole, not to mention the fan base -- Valance Nation -- that was with them every step of the way.

We also learned some interesting tidbits about the series and roads not taken, including a scuppered series that would have seen Valance leading an Imperial TIE squadron (thanks, pandemic.)
