Star Wars: Target Vader #4

The bounty hunters led by Beilert Valance have successfully cut off Darth Vader from the rest of the Imperial forces and driven him into a trap on Heva. However, the group will soon learn that cornering a Dark Lord of the Sith and killing him are two very different matters. Be careful what you wish for.

The fourth issue in the six-issue mini-series is action-heavy as the bounty hunters struggle to make good use of the small window in which before Imperial reinforcements can arrive. There are also some quick flashbacks to pasts of the various members that help fill out the issue but don't necessarily add much to the current plot. Despite getting most of his compatriots killed, Valance's plan did prove to have an outside chance at succeeding... although getting betrayed by a member of his team certainly didn't help his chances.

With two issues remaining, and Valance already defeated, I'm curious as to where the mini-series will go from here. Worth a look.
