What Is Han Solo's Big Twist In Star Wars: War Of The Bounty Hunters?

In June, the Star Wars: War Of The Bounty Hunters crossover kicks off in earnest. We have had preludes, and Alpha issues, but in June, Marvel Comics crosses over all Star Wars titles in the post-Empire Strike Back time period, as everyone is after the body of Han Solo, on its way from Cloud City to Jabba The Hutt's palace on Tattooine, courtesy of Boba Fett. With the first issue of the 5-issue event mini-series promising "With a last-page reveal that will blow this Death Star–sized story wide open". Just a bit of Mindless Speculation – might Han Solo come out of the Carbonite before they get to Tattooine, and rewriting Star Wars lore in the process? Just a guess…
