Marvel Comics will showcase Boba Fett‘s adventures between The Empire Strikes Back and Return Of The Jedi in War Of The Bounty Hunters
It’s time to explore the War Of The Bounty Hunters.
The author explained that he has been itching to tell the story of what happened to Boba Fett between Empire and Return. And now, thanks to Marvel, his dream is about to become a reality. And what’s more, we get a sneak preview of the sensational artwork that will accompany the serial.
“Boba Fett clearly doesn’t take Han Solo directly to Jabba’s palace,” Soule told StarWars.com. “Something had to happen in between that intervening time between Empire and Jedi. And I was like, ‘I would like to tell that story, and I would like it to be about Boba Fett and what happens to him.”
“The main story that we’re dealing with is a Boba Fett-focused crime epic, that involves Boba Fett going up against some of the heaviest hitters in the galaxy. It’s Jabba the Hutt. It’s Black Sun. And Darth Vader. And a bunch of others — factions and so on — that I think will be really interesting for the fans,” says Soule. “It’s basically Boba Fett, by himself, against all of these people.”
And what could make Boba Fett take on the galaxy’s worst? There could be only one thing.
“Boba Fett is in possession of Han Solo at the end of Empire Strikes Back, and at the beginning of War of the Bounty Hunters, he is not,” says Soule. “And he is going to do everything he can to get him back, no matter what. No matter who is standing in his way.”
Running from May through October, it all kicks off with War of the Bounty Hunters Alpha #1 from Soule and artist Steve McNiven.
Exciting times ahead in the galaxy far, far away. And with The Book Of Boba Fett set to release in December – 2021 truly is the year of Boba Fett! Be sure to head over to the official site for the full reveal. It’s a compelling read.
