    Say it aint so!!!

    Just wondering what other peoples' thoughts are about this:

    Dark Horse Comics: Boba Fett is Dead
    Beloved bounty hunter Boba Fett is dead – but who killed him? – GeekOut - CNN.com Blogs

    Anybody read this comic?

    I say kill him! Everyone seems to think of Fett as this unkillable god-mod character, maybe this will kill some of the silly hype and fan-fic of him taking on sith, ect. To me, he died in the Sarlacc in Jedi so this is all just artists playing in George's sandbox

    So he mentions continuity with EU, etc, but also mentions Vader. Boba far outlives Vader in the books, so I wonder how they are going to swing that one.

    I am not a comic reader, but I am intrigued now.

    I think the question here is not who would want to kill him, because that would probably be just about everyone... But rather, who is actually good enough to kill him?

    I'd say no one. In my mind, he'll live on forever <3

    I enjoyed 'Blood Ties' by the same creative team, so I'm looking forward to this.

    Though I doubt anyone would be allowed to kill off a cash cow like Boba Fett, for real.

    Just picked up Issue #1. It was an ok start. What I just realized is all any of us ( or those in the story) have seen is a dead body in Fett armor. The helmet hasn't been removed from the corpse yet, it could be simply an imposter trying to pull a Shysa. I have some other doubts but won't voice them so I won't give things away to those that haven't read it.

    not to ruin the plot [AND I DONT KNOW FOR SURE either way],this is just my way of thinking and i could be way off on this but i have a sneaky feeling that the stormtrooper commander that drags connor freeman out of his cantina in issue 1 is fett in disguise

    Re: Say it aint so!!!

    maybe someone found Jodo Cast and mistaken him for Boba?

    Just remember Lucas originally wanted to kill Fett off in Jedi, (He didn't much like that everyone liked the anti-hero and after all he was a villain in the movies). It was the comic book franchise (Dark Horse if I remember right) that brought him back to life. Mainly because of the demand to see more Fett...And demand usually equals more money..
    I'm just happy that they did, imagine how flat it would have been if Lucas had never allowed the revival of Fett

    true, but now Boba makes him too much money to kill him off, then he wouldn't be able to make millions by selling Boba figures, he isn't even bothering to make them any different anymore.

    Re: Say it aint so!!!

    Just finished reading the first issue and I have no idea what to expect. It's kind of weird, but this is the reason why I wait for trade paperbacks to come out.

    Re: Say it aint so!!!

    I've got a STAR WARS INSIDER magazine that says it is ACTUALLY Boba who dies.

    That makes C-3po, Chewbacca, and Luke who're dead in the EU now right? I've seen pics of Luke as a force ghost (I built a Jedi costume around it a coupla years ago for Halloween) but I haven't read the comics about it sonce I find the EU a little difficult to get in too; the only EU I can take iare the Prequels and the CLone Wars serieses.

    Re: Say it aint so!!!

    eh I still doubt it's him, then how would Lucas make millions from us fett fanboys?

    Re: Say it aint so!!!

    I read the 1st issue of that "Blood Ties" comic, and I don't think that it's really Boba Fett, but an imposter.

    Why? Because in page 2 of the comic, it is clearly listed as, "The events in this story takes place approximately ten years before the battle Of Yavin".

    So that means Boba Fett would have been long dead, before the events in "A New Hope", and "The Empire Strikes Back".

    The only other explanation from this comic is that the real Boba Fett died 10 years before "A New Hope", and that it was really an imposter posing as Boba Fett in "The Empire Strikes Back". (If the comic chooses this type of explanation, it would really contradict with the real canon story.)

    I hope they don't do something stupid like ACTUALLY kill Bobsa then have him brought back from the dead...
