Another significant announcement involved the er-popular Boba Fett. Writer Tom Taylor and artist Chris Scalf will be reuniting for a sequel to their Star Wars: Blood Ties mini-series. The original explored a shared conflict between Fett and his father Jango. We don’t know much about the plot of the sequel, but Dark Horse did offer the ominous tagline, “Boba Fett is dead.”

UPDATE: The comic is coming out April 2012. Here is the description, courtesy of the writer, Tom Taylor:
“Boba Fett is dead. The most infamous hunter in the galaxy has been hunted. He’s lying, broken, on the desert floor. He’s more blaster-holes than man. It’s the ultimate ending. However, this is just the start of our story. With the fall of Fett broadcast across the galaxy, someone rises to avenge him. But who would care about the death of a man like Fett? Bounty hunters aren’t exactly known for their enduring, close friendships but even a man like Boba Fett has family… and now a Blood Tie demands blood.”
