Star Wars War of the Bounty Hunters July 2021 Solicits from Marvel

Marvel have released solicits for the July Star Wars releases involved in the massive War of the Bounty Hunters crossover.

Check out the A covers and solicits below. A couple tidbits I noticed from perusing the solicits:

  • There’s a mysterious assassin after Valance named Deathstick. I’m not a huge fan of the name, but masked characters always get the speculation cogs turning in my head. New character? Old friend? Time will tell.
  • Looks like the Umbaran storyline is coming to a head and the Umbaran is on a collision course with Vader. The Umbaran, an unnamed member of Palpatine’s inner circle, first appeared in Darth Vader (2020, Pak) #8.

Stay tuned for pre order links from TFAW, and we’ll be adding these issues to our master War of the Bounty Hunters Checklist.
