Publisher's summary[]

THE STAR WARS COMIC EVENT YOU'VE BEEN WAITING FOR! The notorious bounty hunter BOBA FETT has finally landed his greatest prize – HAN SOLO, frozen in carbonite for easy transport. Fett will bring the smuggler to TATOOINE to collect the massive bounty placed on Solo's head by the fearsome crime lord JABBA THE HUTT. Sounds easy. What could go wrong?

Plot summary[]

"PRECIOUS CARGO"
Boba Fett, the galaxy's most
dangerous hunter, claims the bounty
of notorious smuggler and rebel
officer Han Solo.

Jabba the Hutt eagerly awaits Fett's
delivery of Solo's carbonite-frozen
body to Tatooine, where the crime
lord will exact his final revenge.

Han Solo's debt is thus paid. But
Boba is desperate for a payday
himself….

Continuity[]

The Garkata Fighting Arena is depicted as having holographic displays surrounding its exterior, advertising the fighting matches. Many of these screens display characters and events taken from later in the issue, including Fett's fight with Wyrmen Lictor, his conversation with the Yarkora, and the death of Bigbot. Other holograms reuse art from Star Wars Legends sources, including images of a Nosaurian from The New Essential Guide to Alien Species[3] and a Shistavanen from the Balance of the Force expansion of Star Wars: The Card Game.[4]
