It's Deva Lompop time! We mentioned that Star Was: War Of The Bounty Hunters: Jabba The Hutt #1 was up for Final-Order Cutoff this weekend. Well, Marvel Comics has noticed as well. This is why they have decided that now is the perfect time to point out that as well; as being Jabba The Hutt's first solo comic book, it will also feature Deva Lompop, a new bounty hunter character's first appearance, with more to come.
Created by writer Justina Ireland and artist Iban Coello, Deva Lompop will be recruited by Jabba the Hutt to "succeed where Boba Fett has failed and bring him Han Solo. Equipped with an array of unique weaponry and sporting a killer design, Deva is set to have a major impact on the action-packed crossover and will appear in all four upcoming War of the Bounty Hunters one-shots. And while Deva may be new to fans, she's been causing trouble in the Star Wars galaxy for a very long time. A member of the alien species known as the Shani, Deva's long lifespan has allowed her to operate in the underworld since the High Republic era, and readers can expect to see her in works set during that time in the near future!"
"Deva was the product of my absolute love of feathered lizards and badass women," says Justina Ireland. "There is definitely something awesome about getting a chance to bring a High Republic character to the War of the Bounty Hunters, and for High Republic fans they should watch for Deva in upcoming works."
