It’s Wednesday fellow inebriated Wookiees and that means previews for next week’s comics. On tap for August 10th is Han Solo and Chewbacca #5 and Star Wars Bounty Hunters #26.
I’ll spare you the pleasantries and get right down to business.
Let’s dig in.
It’s interesting to see pre-retired/un-retired T’onga in a comic. She has some series page time now as she’s been in comics since her first appearance in Star Wars Bounty Hunters #1.
The two variants are interesting to me as well. First of, the Sprouse Chooses Your Destiny cover is Keeve Trennis. One of the main characters of the High Republic and very popular character among fans.
Also, while Buck Vancto first appeared in Han Solo and Chewbacca #1, the 1:25 Variant of Han Solo and Chewbacca #5 by David Lopez is their first cover appearance.

“LET’S KEEP A LITTLE OPTIMISM HERE.” But optimism is hard to come by with the Millennium Falcon gone and Han and Chewie in their toughest spot ever! Greedo is back and boy, is he mad!
Featuring the returns of Marshal Buck Vancto and Khel Tanna. Which one is going to get their hands on Han first? All this and more in the rip-roaring conclusion of “The Crystal Run.”

A few interesting things about this issue. In regards to the story I really hope we see Qi’ra fight someone other than Darth Vader as the cover A suggests. I want to see cartoon Emilia Clarke bust some heads.
From a comic speculation standpoint the Sprouse Choose Your Own Destiny cover includes Reva aka The Third Sister’s first cover appearance. Considering she’s still alive and kickin’ in the live action universe it’s not a bad pickup in my opinion.

THE SHOCKING ENDING TO THE BOUNTY HUNTERS’ RAID ON THE VERMILLION!
• T’onga must face Crimson Dawn on her own to save the girl she seeks.
• Meanwhile, one of her crew may not survive Vukorah’s deadly revenge.
• And Dengar may finally be getting exactly what he deserves.
