KRRSANTAN: A READER’S GUIDE TO THE WOOKIEE WARRIOR
Krrsantan, or “Santo” if you’re Garsa Fwip, has the distinction of being one of the few Star Wars characters to make the jump from page to screen. Created by comic creators Kieron Gillen and Salvador Larroca, Krrsantan is no newcomer to the sands of Tatooine or the world of bounty hunting and working for morally questionable individuals. But who else has he worked for? Who else has he teamed up with? What bounties has he brought in? And is there an overlap between those categories? For these answers and more, we turn to the world of Star Wars comics!
THE BOOK OF BOBA FETT
I loved Krrsantan’s live-action debut in The Book Of Boba Fett. I make no apologies for holding the relationship between Han and Chewie in the highest regard. And I love the irony in Boba Fett finding Santo and bringing him aboard as his enforcer. The parallels are too delicious to ignore. And with his connection to Obi-Wan Kenobi already established, I truly hope to see more from Santo in the very near future.
