A new war is about to begin in a galaxy far, far away.
Marvel’s epic Star Wars: War of the Bounty Hunters kicks off in May, telling the tale of Boba Fett’s struggle to deliver Han Solo to Jabba the Hutt. (As it turns out, a lot of people wanted the charming nerf herder.) The story will cross over into the House of Ideas’ entire post-Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back line, and StarWars.com has a first look at the War of the Bounty Hunters comics hitting in July. See below for covers and official descriptions for Star Wars: War of the Bounty Hunters #2, Star Wars #15, Star Wars: Doctor Aphra #12, Star Wars: Bounty Hunters #14, and Star Wars: Darth Vader #14!
