Looks like The Mandalorian isn’t the only place where you’ll be finding Star Wars’ greatest bounty hunter. Marvel has just announced a Boba Fett comic.
He’s no good to me dead
Unless you’ve been intentionally not paying attention, you likely know that Boba Fett is back. Last seen in the jaws (beak?) of the Sarlacc pit in the aftermath of Jabba’s demise, the greatest bounty hunter of the Star Wars galaxy has made his return.
How is he back? How did he escape the pit of Carkoon? No idea, and even though Disney Plus’ The Mandalorian made him a pretty major part of its season 2, it didn’t get into the actual means of Fett’s return.
That may, however, factor into the upcoming Book of Boba Fett TV series, and also the upcoming Marvel Comic based on the character. Just announced, the book has zero detail as to what the narrative might be, though Boba looks to be his old self on the cover.
That’d mean that we’d be looking at the young Fett, from the Original Trilogy time period, and not the post-Jedi version. Well not to worry either way, since you won’t have long to wait for more on the subject. Marvel says that Star Wars’ website will have additional tomorrow. So basically, stay tuned.
And for now, you can enjoy the Steve McNiven cover piece that’s shown here.
