After releasing a teaser poster with Boba Fett on it, Marvel has officially announced a Star Wars comic event called War of the Bounty Hunters, and the story will start with War of the Bounty Hunters Aphra issue one! War of the Bounty Hunters is a crossover event that’ll take place in Star Wars, Star Wars: Bounty Hunters, Star Wars: Darth Vader, and Star Wars: Doctor Aphra, which takes place after The Empire Strike Back! The prelude to the event will start in May and the main start of the event will be in June. War of the Bounty Hunters will be a five-issue miniseries. The series will be written by Charles Soule and art by Luke Ross!
Here’s the synopsis for the event:
The notorious bounty hunter Boba Fett is on route to Tatooine to collect the massive bounty placed on Han Solo’s head by the fearsome crime lord Jabba the Hutt. But no one said it would be easy. The hunter becomes the hunted as pursuers from all corners of the galaxy set their sights on Boba and his precious cargo. Darth Vader, Luke Skywalker, Doctor Aphra, the galaxy’s deadliest bounty hunters, and more are all on a collision course that will reveal surprising new details about this long-unexplored era in the Star Wars mythos
Here’s the covers of the issues involved with the event:
War of the Bounty Hunters sounds exciting! One of the coolest things about Star Wars has always been their bounty hunters, so to me, this event is an instant buy. Also, it makes me wonder if this story would be mentioned in The Book of Boba series on Disney+.
