[ad_1]

Star Wars: War of the Bounty Hunters will be launching this May. The Marvel Comics crossover event will feature several characters from the world of Star Wars hunting the one and only Han Solo. The hunt begins on May 5 with the release of War of the Bounty Hunters Alpha #1 from Charles Soule and Steve McNiven with various tie-ins releasing in July. This includes everyone’s favorite Hutt, Jabba the Hutt who also hunts down the scoundrel in War of the Bounty Hunters – Jabba the Hutt #1 from writer Justina Ireland and artist Luca Pizzari.

Jabba the Hutt is one of the most powerful and ruthless gangsters in the galaxy—and Boba Fett, his most trusted bounty hunter, has failed him. How will Jabba deal with betrayal and what does this have to do with a bounty hunter with ties to the High Republic? STAR WARS: WAR OF THE BOUNTY HUNTERS — JABBA THE HUTT #1 by writer Justina Ireland and artist Luca Pizzari will be the first of four action-packed “War of the Bounty Hunters” one-shot tie-ins about the criminal underworld’s most notorious hunters and scoundrels, all told by the best Star Wars writers and illustrators in the galaxy.

Talking to StarWars.com about the chance to work on this story, Ireland said:

Getting to work on a comic at Marvel, especially a Star Wars comic about one of the most perpetually under-appreciated criminal masterminds in the whole galaxy, has been a trip. It’s exciting, a little scary, and really makes me wish I could time travel to tell my twelve-year-old self reading comics in the grocery store self ‘All of this will pay off one day.’
