DC has its big yearly event, and Marvel seems to be teasing some sort of massive shake-up every day that ends with a “Y”, so it’s about time that Star Wars did something. Yes I know the Star Wars comic books are done by Marvel, which proves my entire point right. Ha! Anyway, Star Wars kicked off its War of the Bounty Hunters big slamma-jamma event last week, and if you’re planning to collect the entire brouhaha then I hope you’ve saved up all your pocket money because it’s going to be a 34-issue main event.

Set between The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi, War of the Bounty Hunters focuses on the infamous Boba Fett as he finds himself fending off a number of challengers who want to hijack his freshly-frozen Han Solo cargo and make a name for themselves. Everyone from Bossk, Dengar, 4-LOM, and IG-88 are gunning for the Mandalorian warrior, and the entire event will run over the course of six months. Here’s the entire reading order, if you feel like following along:
