The Bounty Hunter of Ord Mantell is a comic strip written by Archie Goodwin and illustrated by Al Williamson, originally published in February 1981 by the Los Angeles Times Syndicate. It was later reprinted in Amazing Heroes magazine #1–5.
It was republished by Dark Horse Comics in Classic Star Wars 1, and up to page 15 of Classic Star Wars 2. It was republished again on StarWars.com's webstrips section of Hyperspace and was made available to the public after penciller Al Williamson passed away on June 14, 2010.
Plot summary[edit | edit source]
Based on a line uttered by Han Solo in The Empire Strikes Back, the strip covered an attempt by the bounty hunter Skorr to capture Solo on Ord Mantell and cash in on Jabba Desilijic Tiure's death mark against the smuggler.
Development[edit | edit source]
The strip was the first Star Wars newspaper strip released in the Los Angeles Times since the Star Wars Fan Club lobbied for the series' continuation after its near cancellation.
