hat’s the one thing bounty hunters are good at - besides tracking down their prey? Doing whatever it takes to get there before everyone else.

First announced earlier this year, Charles Soule’s upcoming Star Wars comic miniseries Star Wars: War of the Bounty Hunters will kick off a monumental Marvel crossover event that will tie current Star Wars comics together with a fierce battle for the ultimate prize: a very frozen and valuable Han Solo.

This morning, StarWars.com released a full preview of every Star Wars comic releasing this June -- including cover and synopsis reveals of the first War of the Bounty Hunters issue and crossovers.

Here’s a quick look at what we know about each.

Star Wars: War of the Bounty Hunters #1 (Charles Soule, Steve McNiven) hits physical and digital comic shops on June 2 and features a very disgruntled Boba Fett facing the harsh reality that he has lost possibly the most important bounty he’s ever been tasked with delivering.

Star Wars: Bounty Hunters #13 (Ethan Sacks, Paolo Villanelli) arrives June 9 lands the series’ star hunters in front of none other than Chewbacca. They say you should always let a Wookiee win, but what if that’s a sacrifice you’re not so willing to make?

Star Wars (2020) #14 (Soule, Ramon Rosans) releases June 16 and, judging by the cover featuring everyone’s favorite scoundrel not encased in carbonite, involves Lando and his good friend’s Wookiee on a daring rescue mission to rescue Solo.

Star Wars: Doctor Aphra (2020) #11 (Alyssa Wong, Minkyu Jung), on sale June 30, puts Aphra and Sana Starros face-to-face with none other than DURGE! Not all abandoned ships warrant the unwanted appearance of DURGE! But this one sure does.

Once the five-issue miniseries concludes, the story will continue through October with crossovers between current runs of Star Wars, Doctor Aphra, Darth Vader, and Bounty Hunters.

You can see full previews for all June 2021 comic releases on StarWars.com.

War of the Bounty Hunters releases its first of five issues on June 2, 2021. You can view our complete Book Profile for more details.
