Marvel’s June 2021 solicits are here and they contain the second wave of Star Wars’ big cross-over event, War of the Bounty Hunters! The event kicks off with War of the Bounty Hunters Alpha by Soule and McNiven in May 2021, and continues in the Star Wars, Darth Vader, Bounty Hunters, and Doctor Aphra titles from there on out!
I gotta say, I’m especially excited to see Durge come back in Aphra! Durge first appeared in comics in Star Wars Republic #51 from Dark Horse in 2003.
