Helmet nod to Fantha Tracks for figuring out this roadmap, which for a long time was nowhere officially. (They ended up printing one in the issue itself.)
Summary for this issue:
"THE STAR WARS COMIC EVENT YOU'VE BEEN WAITING FOR!
The notorious bounty hunter BOBA FETT has finally landed his greatest prize - HAN SOLO, frozen in carbonite for easy transport.
Fett will bring the smuggler to TATOOINE to collect the massive bounty placed on Solo's head by the fearsome crime lord JABBA THE HUTT.
Sounds easy. What could go wrong?"
