Boba Fett Ignites ‘War of the Bounty Hunters’ Star Wars Crossover Event This May

This May sees the launch of WAR OF THE BOUNTY HUNTERS, a Star Wars crossover event which will span all of Marvel’s post Empire Strikes Back line-up, including Star Wars, Star Wars: Bounty Hunters, Star Wars: Darth Vader, and Star Wars: Doctor Aphra.  The event will kick off with special “prelude” issues throughout May, continuing into June with a five-part War of the Bounty Hunters miniseries from Charles Soule and artist Luke Ross.

Here’s the official blurb:

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.

Speaking to StarWars.com about the series, Soule said “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. And this story will absolutely do that.”

The event kicks off with War of the Bounty Hunters Alpha #1 on May 5th, written by Soule and drawn by Steve McNiven, and you can feast your eyes on a cover gallery for all of May’s “prelude” titles below:
