He’s big, he’s bad and he wants a new trophy next to his tauntaun head. Yes, Jabba the Hutt eagerly awaits the arrival of Han Solo and that will be explored in Star Wars: War of the Bounty Hunters — Jabba the Hutt #1, written by Justina Ireland with pencils from Luca Pizzari and cover art by Mahmud Asrar.

Tatooine’s fearsome crime lord Jabba the Hutt has entered the hunt for Han Solo, with a brand-new one-shot comic published as part of Marvel’s massive Star Wars: War of the Bounty Hunters crossover event, and StarWars.com is thrilled to announce the new comic as part of War of the Bounty Hunters Week. The first of four single-issue tie-ins, Star Wars: War of the Bounty Hunters — Jabba the Hutt #1 will be written by Justina Ireland with pencils by Luca Pizzari and cover art from Mahmud Asrar. Releasing in July of 2021, the hutt-sized spectacular will lead a series exploring the criminal underworld’s most notorious hunters and scoundrels, all told by the best Star Wars writers and illustrators in the galaxy.

“Getting to work on a comic at Marvel, especially a Star Wars comic about one of the most perpetually under-appreciated criminal masterminds in the whole galaxy, has been a trip,” Ireland tells StarWars.com. “It’s exciting, a little scary, and really makes me wish I could time travel to tell my twelve-year-old self reading comics in the grocery store self ‘All of this will pay off one day.’”
