It was written by Ethan Sacks, illustrated by Paolo Villanelli, and published on June 24, 2020 by Marvel Comics.

Publisher's summary[edit | edit source]

DUEL TO THE DEATH…AS THE SCOREKEEPER WILLS! Bossk confronts Valance in the ultimate heavyweight battle…and only one bounty hunter will remain standing when the dust clears. The mysterious Nakano Lash finally resurfaces, threatening to plunge the underworld into an all-out war between two of the most powerful criminal syndicates in the galaxy. Every bounty hunter, including the fearsome BOBA FETT, is after Lash. But what truly drives Fett to hunt down this particular quarry? Is it for the payday or…vengeance?! What exactly happened to Boba, Valance and Lash on that ill-fated mission so many years ago…?

Plot summary[edit | edit source]

As the Scorekeeper Wills
Nakano Lash betrayed the bounty hunter crew she led by killing their
client—the heir of the Mourner's Wail Syndicate—which incited a war
between the Mourner's Wail and their rival, the Unbroken Clan.

Years later, Lash re-emerged, and the price on her head has attracted hordes of
hunters—including the remains of her old crew: the Trandoshan Bossk, Boba Fett,
the human T'onga, whose brother T'ongor died as a result of Lash's actions, and
her cyborg protégé Valance, who found coordinates Lash hid at the grave site of
her parents.

Valance's droid now has Lash's location…and Valance's ex-teammate Bossk isn't
above killing him to get it!

Development[edit | edit source]

Bounty Hunters 3 was initially solicited for an April 15, 2020 release,[1] but it was delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.[3]

  2. The events of Bounty Hunters 1 take place shortly after the events of Star Wars: Episode V The Empire Strikes Back. Since Star Wars: Galactic Atlas dates the film to 3 ABY, the events of Bounty Hunters 1 must take place around that year. As Bounty Hunters 3 picks up after Bounty Hunters 1 and 2, it must also take place around the same year.
