Marvel’s Star Wars comic book crossover expands to feature a certain crime lord

As we learn more about Marvel’s new Star Wars crossover, we’re seeing exactly who’ll be involved with the “War of the Bounty Hunters”.

Yes, the latest Star Wars comic book event is coming up, and pretty fast too, kicking off with a special issue next month (May ’21). From there, there’s a month gap before things pick up with a half-dozen crossover issues.

With that many issues involved, you can expect a pretty big cast for this one. That means the usual Star Wars cast of heroes and villains, as well as the ‘bounty hunters’ and now, Jabba the Hutt.

The Tatooinian crime boss will be getting a one-shot issue, that’ll land right at the top of this new “War”.

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.
