Boba Fett Uses His Dad's ID To Get Served? War Of The Bounty Hunters

You know how any Mandalorian-related story goes. The man in the armour wants something. In order to get it, however, the person who has it demands that the armoured-fellow has to go and do something else. The old mini-quest feature. And that's how the new Star Wars: War Of The Bounty Hunters crossover begins, with Alpha #1 by Charles Soule and Steve McNiven. With the frozen body of Han Solo needing a little touch up before Boba Fett can deliver it to Jabba The Hutt. We know how the story ends – but how did it get there?

Of course, it's never going to be quite that easy – all sort of people want Han Solo's prone, immobile boddy it seems. I mean, looking at the slashfic, we should have guessed.
