Star Wars: War of the Bounty Hunters #3
(W) Charles Soule; (A) Luke Ross; (CA) Steve McNiven
WINNER TAKES ALL! Terrifying, implacable Dark Lord of the Sith DARTH VADER has laid claim to HAN SOLO, who is frozen in carbonite. But the great, exalted JABBA THE HUTT also believes that Solo is his property. It’s the galaxy’s baddest gangster versus the Empire’s most powerful enforcer, and neither is backing down. BOBA FETT is caught between a Sith and a Hutt…and it’s WINNER TAKE ALL.

MISSING IN ACTION
LEIA ORGANA, CHEWBACCA and LANDO CALRISSIAN battle BOBA FETT for the ultimate prize — HAN SOLO! But they are not the only people who have come to the remote world of JEKARA seeking the smuggler. DARTH VADER, JABBA THE HUTT and more are in the mix as well… Jedi LUKE SKYWALKER may be the Rebels’ only hope… but WHERE is he?
WAR OF THE BOUNTY HUNTERS TIE-IN
Star Wars Adventures #8
(W) Sam Maggs/Danny Lore; (A) Liana Kangas/Ariana Florean; (CA) Francesco Francavilla/Ariana Florean
The Empire has been defeated, but that doesn’t mean that the danger is over for Luke and Leia, who find themselves in a tricky situation that they have to work together to get out of! Plus, Count Dooku has sinister plans for a Clone troop!
Star Wars: The High Republic Adventures #7
(W) Daniel Jose Older; (A) Harvey Talibao; (CA) Harvey Talibao
As the galaxy prepares for its Republic Fair, Qort and Farzala are sent on a diplomatic mission to negotiate with the Hutts, who have joined them in the fight against the Drengir. But relations turn sour, and it’s going to take all of their training to get them out of the situation!
Writer Daniel José Older, bestselling author of Star Wars: Last Shot and artist Harvey Tolibao bring IDW into The High Republic, a massive publishing crossover spanning comics and prose!
I wanted to point out issues which have a final order cut off on Monday 8/16/2021. If you’re not familiar, final order cutoff is when the distributor locks orders and the publishers then print accordingly. So, if you want to absolutely guarantee you get a book, get your order in before then.
As I said above, Marvel snuck Deva Lompop’s first appearance, WOBH Jabba the Hutt (Villain), and Darth Krall and Orla Jareni’s first appearance, High Republic #7 (Villain), back to the printers for second printings! Those who missed out on the first, or those later printing collectors, should snatch the second print up before FOC on 8/16!
