Via our eternally awesome buddies over at Boba Fett Fan Club, a look at the Steve McNiven variant of War of the Bounty Hunters Alpha #1, written by Charles Soule, illustrated by McNiven and on shelves 5th May. It’s made clear that this isn’t the final art, but the issue will give presumably us a look at a black armoured Boba Fett, perhaps a stealth suit he uses for covert missions.
According to the BBFC this is one of a number of variants for the Alpha issue. There’s an always very welcome action figure variant, a director’s cut variant, a Leinil Francis Yu variant, a McNiven Crimson variant, this McNiven Black Armor variant and a Director’s Cut Sketch variant as well as the regular newsstand edition and its inevitable reprints.
THE STAR WARS COMIC EVENT YOU’VE BEEN WAITING FOR! The notorious bounty hunter BOBA FETT has finally landed his greatest prize – HAN SOLO, frozen in carbonite for easy transport. Fett will bring the smuggler to TATOOINE to collect the massive bounty placed on Solo’s head by the fearsome crime lord JABBA THE HUTT. Sounds easy. What could go wrong? Rated T
