Han Solo Becomes the Target in Marvel’s Star Wars: Bounty Hunters #12 – Exclusive Preview

Beilert Valance isn’t actually going in to an asteroid field, is he? The bold tactic that once helped Han Solo and his crew escape from the Empire is so crazy it just might also work for Valance and Dengar.

In StarWars.com’s exclusive preview of Star Wars: Bounty Hunters #12 — part of Marvel’s epic crossover War of the Bounty Hunters, which explores Boba Fett’s journey to Jabba the Hutt following the events of Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back — we find the cyborg dodging exogorths and staring through his scope at a new target: Captain Solo himself.

Who didn’t, at one point in their life, make “wrrr” sounds as they played with a broom, paper towel roll, or anything remotely close to resembling a lightsaber? Let’s dive in and discover all we can about these elegant weapons of the galaxy far, far away.

Lightsabers are most commonly associated with the Jedi and Sith but not everyone who wields these weapons are devoted to those religions. Ren, the original leader of the Knights of Ren, was simply a dark warrior that used a red lightsaber. Ahsoka Tano, while originally raised a Jedi, continued using her lightsabers following her departure from the Order, eventually sporting a new pair of hilts

A few years ago I remember bursting into tears watching the scene in Star Wars: The Phantom
