Marvel and Lucasfilm have announced War of the bounty hunters. This new comic book crossover event will focus on Boba Fett, taking place between the events of The Empire Strikes Back Y Return of the Jedi. Specifically, it will focus on Fett’s mission to deliver Han Solo, who has been frozen in Carbonite, to Jabba the Hutt. What we never understood on screen is that it turned out to be a dangerous mission.
War of the bounty hunters will reveal what Boba Fett experienced on his journey to deliver Han Solo to Jabba the Hutt. From May to October, it all starts with War of the Bounty Hunters Alpha # 1 by Charles Soule and artist Steve McNiven. Soule says, “I think it’s the best job I’ve ever done.” For those familiar with your work in a galaxy far, far away, that’s really saying something. Soule said this about how he came up with the idea.
“Boba Fett clearly doesn’t lead Han Solo directly to Jabba’s palace. Something had to happen between that intervening time between Empire and Jedi. And I was like, ‘I’d like to tell that story, and I’d like it to be about Boba Fett and him. what happens to him “.
The event will be extensive, like many Marvel Comics crossovers. Will exit the current run of The Empire Strikes Back stories told in the Star Wars line. Titles participating in the event include Star Wars, Bounty hunter, Darth vader Y Doctor Aphra. A theme of five War of the bounty hunters the Charles Soule and Luke Ross miniseries will anchor the story. It starts in June. Marvel has released some preview images, revealing some of the issues Boba Fett faced in delivering Solo to Jabba. Soule had this to say about the main story.
“The main story we’re dealing with is a Boba Fett-centric criminal epic, involving Boba Fett taking on some of the heaviest hitters in the galaxy. He’s Jabba the Hutt. He’s Black Sun. He’s Darth Vader. And a lot of others, factions, etc, that I think will be really interesting for the fans. Basically it’s Boba Fett, alone, against all these people … Boba Fett is in Han Solo’s possession at the end of Empire Strikes Back, And at the start of War of the Bounty Hunters, he’s not. And he’ll do everything he can to get it back, no matter what. No matter who stands in his way. “
Boba Fett is having a good time right now. The character made his long-awaited return in The mandalorian season 2. And this comic book crossover is just the tip of the iceberg. Lucasfilm is currently in production at Boba Fett’s book, coming to Disney + in December. Fett is finally having his moment in the limelight.
