Marvel Reveals Variant Covers For ‘Star Wars: War Of The Bounty Hunters’ Event

by Brendan M. Allen

Throughout the week, StarWars.com has revealed a series of teaser images spotlighting the major players of the Marvel Comics crossover, Star Wars: War of the Bounty Hunters

Drawn by artist Giuseppe Camuncoli, these headshots will also serve as variant covers for upcoming tie-in issues of the event. See Darth Vader, Princess Leia, Doctor Aphra, Boba Fett, and the galaxy’s deadliest bounty hunters on a collision course for the greatest prize of all: Han Solo. 

The final teaser was unveiled today and revealed that the infamous Tatooine crime lord Jabba the Hutt will also be joining the hunt in a special one-shot.

‘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.

Ireland told StarWars.com 

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.

Check out all six teasers and the main cover for Star Wars: War of the Bounty Hunters- Jabba the Hutt #1 by Mahmud Asrar, and don’t miss the start of this epic when War of the Bounty Hunters Alpha #1 hits spinner racks on May 5th, 2021.
