The hunt for Han Solo begins May



Whilst Star Wars fans (myself included) wait for The Book of Boba Fett, starring Temuera Morrison as the titular bounty hunter and co-starring Ming-Na Wen as fan-favourite Fennec Shand, this December on Disney+. Marvel Comics is publishing an epic Star Wars crossover event entitled Star Wars: War of the Bounty Hunters running from May through October.

Like Star Wars: Shadows of the Empire, War of the Bounty Hunters chronicles events between Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back and Star Wars: Return of the Jedi as Boba Fett transports Han Solo in carbonite to Jabba the Hutt.

War of the Bounty Hunters will crossover into all Star Wars comics including Darth Vader, Doctor Aphra and a Jabba the Hutt one-shot special this July.

“Getting to work on a comic at Marvel, especially a Star Wars comic about one of the most perpetually under-appreciated criminal masterminds in the whole galaxy, has been a trip,” Justina Ireland told StarWars.com. “It’s exciting, a little scary, and really makes me wish I could time travel to tell my twelve-year-old self reading comics in the grocery store self ‘All of this will pay off one day.'”

Star Wars: War of the Bounty Hunters Alpha #1 hits newsstands 5th May and is available for pre-order (affiliate link).
