Boba Fett ignites the War of the Bounty Hunters
War of the Bounty Hunters is an upcoming Star Wars crossover event that will begin in May. The event will kick off with War of the Bounty Hunters Alpha #1. It is written by Charles Soule and drawn by Steve McNiven. From there, the event will tie into Marvel’s entire post-Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back lineup. It includes Star Wars, Star Wars: Bounty Hunters, Star Wars: Darth Vader, and Star Wars: Doctor Aphra, starting with special prelude issues throughout May. The crossover will continue in June, centering around a five-issue War of the Bounty Hunters miniseries. The epic story will see the entire galaxy from the Rebellion to the Empire at war for the greatest prize of all: Han Solo!
The Star Wars comics event you’ve been waiting for arrives in May!
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.
War of the Bounty Hunters is a story about Boba Fett doing his thing, but it builds into something much bigger, and that’s what the best comic crossovers and big stories do. They tell a great story in and of themselves, but they’re also the start of something, and they open a lot of new doors.
Fans will also be able to pick up a special Director’s Cut version of Alpha #1. It is complete with Steve McNiven’s mind-blowing black and white art and more incredible bonus features. Head over to StarWars.com now for the full announcement, including a first look at interior artwork, and be there when Boba Fett fires the first shot this May!
