Publisher's summary[]

VALANCE'S FIRST APPEARANCES, ALSO AVAILABLE- NEVER BETRAY A BOUNTY HUNTER – ESPECIALLY IF IT'S BOBA FETT! Years ago, VALANCE and fellow bounty hunters BOSSK and BOBA FETT took on a mission that went sideways in a bad way after Valance's mentor, NAKANO LASH, violently betrayed them. Valance's team barely escaped with their lives. He never thought he'd face his old mentor ever again-until Lash finally resurfaces under mysterious circumstances. Every bounty hunter in the galaxy wants a piece and Valance is hell-bent on getting to the prize first. He has score to settle-but so does Boba Fett!

Plot summary[]

Ghosts of Corellia
The Rebel Alliance is all but defeated after the Battle of Hoth. The Empire has redoubled their efforts to crush the scattered freedom fighters.

While the civil war consumes the galaxy the underworld thrives. Smugglers, mercenaries and thieves serve crime syndicates and cartels that vie for influence, territory and profit.

Skilled and ruthless bounty hunters—some of the most dangerous killers in the galaxy—scour systems to track down wanted criminals for the highest price. Three of these hunters—Valance, Bossk and Boba Fett—are considered some of the best. And they have a history with each other…one that's about to put them on a deadly collision course.


Despite having previously worked together in the Star Wars: Darth Vader comic series, set before the events of this issue, Bossk and Chelli Aphra are presented here as meeting for the first time.
