Naturally, there are major spoilers here.

The conventional wisdom is that the shortest distance between two points is a straight line, but it seems like there are no straight lines in Star Wars. Though many of the laws of physics and mortals don’t apply in Star Wars, Murphy’s Law does, and that’s really at the heart of the new Marvel Comics event, War of the Bounty Hunters. The kickoff, Star Wars: War of the Bounty Hunters #1 “Most Wanted,” written by Charles Soule, illustrated by Luke Ross, and colored by Neeraj Menon, gives us a view of exactly how badly things can go wrong. The premise of the story is simple: plenty of us assumed that Boba Fett had an easy time taking Han Solo, frozen in carbonite, back to Jabba the Hutt from Cloud City. What this story presupposes is, “Maybe he didn’t?” Read More »

New Boba Fett Comic Book

Star Wars fans are eagerly anticipating the arrival of The Book of Boba Fett, a new spin-off series focused around the bounty hunter who made quite the return in The Mandalorian on Disney+. But before we see how the story of Boba Fett continues, Marvel Comics and writer Charles Soule are going to tell a story from his past that fills in the gap between The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi.

War of the Bounty Hunters is a new five-issue comic book miniseries that will reveal the difficulty that Boba Fett had in delivering Han Solo in carbonite to Jabba the Hutt. Though it might have seemed like the job was easy, it turns out that the bounty hunter had to deal with all sorts of problems as he tried to deliver the slimy gangster his new prize. In fact, at one point he even lost the captured smuggler altogether. Find out more about the new Boba Fett comic book below. Read More »

As teased in an end-credit sequence following the season 2 finale of The Mandalorian, Boba Fett’s journey will continue in The Book of Boba Fett, a new Disney+ Original Series produced by Jon Favreau, Dave Filoni, and Robert Rodriguez. Set within the timeline of The Mandalorian and starring Temuera Morrison as the titular bounty hunter, along with Ming-Na Wen as Fennec Shand, The Book of Boba Fett is currently in production and will arrive December 2021 on Disney+.

As a massive Boba Fett fan, this is a total dream come true. While the official announcement states the series is set during the events of The Mandalorian, the title suggests the show may have some anthology elements, like Dark Horse Comics’ Star Wars Tales or those classic books of the Expanded Universe era like Tales From Jabba’s Palace and Tales of the Bounty Hunters.

If the show utilizes a framing technique that has Boba reminiscing on his life and career as the galaxy’s most notorious bounty hunter, we may get to see some fabled moments from the character’s past that will disintegrate (in a good way) the hearts and minds of diehard Fett fans everywhere. Here are some people, places, and things that really, really should appear in the upcoming series.

With Boba Fett’s redemption complete, he’s now been given his own character poster. Read More »
