#TriviaTuesday: The color of #JodoKast shifted a little between the 1997 Dark Horse Comics single issue release and the 2015 Marvel digital re-print of "Twin Engines of Destruction," one of the best #BobaFett comics ever.
Helmet nod to Jaycepticon for asking us about it recently. Note that Boba Fett and just about everything else also changed between the editions, too.
For more about the 1997 classic, which Marvel is bringing back for re-prints, see http://bobafett.com/bounty/books/comics/twin-engines-of-destruction/. The one-shot was also included in Star Wars Legends Epic Collection: The New Republic Volume 1 (2015), Star Wars Omnibus: Boba Fett (2010), and The Bounty Hunters Trade Paperback (2000), as well as of course its original debut in Topps Star Wars Galaxy Magazine.
(Helmet nod to BFFC fan Gustavo Perez for inspiring today's picture.)
This panel comes from the game-changing comic "Twin Engines of Destruction," which originally was published in four issues of a now-defunct #StarWars Galaxy Magazine from Topps. As you may know, Jodo Kast was a competing bounty hunter who pretended to be Boba Fett -- to whomever was paying the bounty. The comic was written by Andy Mangels, who also coined the name Jaster Mereel, which was since change up after the prequels, and even since has been coined a "legend." #
#FettFriday: #JodoKast as #BobaFett. In "Twin Engines of Destruction," at first glance, even #Dengar doesn't know for certain if this is Kast or Fett saying "nice try." The four-part comic in 1996 was written by Andy Mangles, pencil art by John Nadeau, ink by Jordi Ensign, lettering by Michael Taylor, and color by Cary Porter.
#JodoKast and #BobaFett faced off in "Twin Engines of Destruction," a 4-part comic in 1996 in the short-lived Topps #StarWars Galaxy Magazine. The story was written by Andy Mangels, who also wrote the initial Jaster Mereel / Concord Dawn backstory, since thrown out the window by the prequel storylines. The comic was reprinted by #DarkHorseComics individually and then in a trade paperback collection called "The Bounty Hunters" in 2000.
#BobaFett has been included in dozens of #videogames, such as the game cover, cartridge cover, and advertising model for Masters of Teras Kasi, which #LucasArts made in 1997. Unfortunately, this rendering looks nothing like the lo-fi character in the game. One cool trick in the game: you can play as #JodoKast.
