    Boba Fett: Enemy of the Empire

    Written by John Wagner, art by Ian Gibson

    A fugitive killer arrives on a barren world, treks across a desert where he finds monastery surrounded by a moat of molten lava. The reason for his desperation? He is being tracked by a masked man who has sworn to uphold the law, and has never been outsmarted or defeated.

    No, it is not The Judge Child Quest - it is a new Boba Fett Graphic Novel for Dark Horse. Boba Fett, here in the Judge Dredd role, is hired by Darth Vader to hunt down a renegade Imperial. The plot seems reminiscent of a similar case in Bounty Hunter Trilogy.

    The climax? Well, Fett and Vader face off ...

    Boba Fett: Salvage

    Written by John Wagner, art by Carlos Ezquerra

    This is a one-off backup strip in the Graphic Novel, Enemy of the Empire.

    On his way to turn in some captured fugitives, Boba Fett discovers a derelict Space Freighter. However, the thing which killed the crew is still aboard ...

    Usually when this writer and artist work together on a story about a Bounty Hunter it is Johnny Alpha, the Strontium Dog. This story could easily have been written for 2000AD, and there is nothing that really puts it in the Star Wars universe.
