The latest release from Dark Horse Books includes four illustrated adventures featuring one of the most popular and enigmatic characters in the Star Wars universe: Mandalorian bounty hunter Boba Fett.
Containing more than 100 pages of breathtaking illustrations from world-class artists Cam Kennedy, Adriana Melo, and Francisco Ruiz Velasco, Boba Fett: Man with a Mission chronicles a quartet of the legendary bounty hunter's most dangerous undertakings. In "Sacrifice," Fett becomes involved in a civil war on the remote planet of Solem, where a ruthless governor, at the behest of his Imperial masters, has hired Fett to take out a determined resistance leader. But whose side is Fett really on? "Wreckage" follows Fett into an abandoned star destroyer in search of the most precious thing in the galaxy; "Overkill" exemplifies Fett's unique conflict resolution style at an Imperial outpost on a backwater planet; and "Agent of Doom" pits the masked bounty hunter against a villainous duo bent on genocide.
Long after the epic Star Wars motion picture cycle has been completed, the mythos surrounding beloved Star Wars characters like Boba Fett is still evolving, thanks in large part to publishers like Dark Horse Comics. Regardless of whether fans view the faceless enforcer with the distinctive battle armor as villain or hero or both, one thing is certain: This action-packed, visually spectacular volume of Boba Fett adventures kicks serious butt. Man with a Mission is a must-read, not only for Star Wars fans of all ages but for budding bounty hunters as well. EE-3 blaster rifle not included. Paul Goat Allen
