DJ: Most Wanted is an okay one off that puts DJ in an adventure right before the events in The Last Jedi. It doesn’t reveal anything about his background or his name, but it does play around with the whole gray angle.

The whole story is set on Canto Bight and takes place in a couple casinos before ending up in jail. DJ spends most of his time gambling with no real objective other than to spend credits. He’s not very good at games of chance, so he cheats, which gets him in trouble. When the local authorities come after him, he gets into even more trouble. However, through all the cat and mouse chasing and mystery story unfurling, in the end, this issue is a little confusing. The catch at the end kind of works, but also kind of doesn’t work. The whole story banks on the payout of that twist, but unfortunately the twist isn’t a great payout. So all in all, it’s an okay story, not a great one. There’s not a lot of risk and the story isn’t as well crafted as it could be.

The artwork for the issue is pretty good. It’s very cartoony, especially for the human characters, but there’s lots of detail and good coloring. DJ is a little odd looking due to the way they try to portray him, but it’s consistent, so that’s a plus, and it does resemble¬†Benicio Del Toro a bit.

In the end, though, DJ: Most Wanted is still an average comic. Good artwork and an okay story isn’t enough to make this a must read. I give it a three out of five metal bikinis.
