Sure, Star Wars is mostly known for Jedi Knights, Sith Lords, Droids and Clone Troopers...but let's not forget the other dark side of the universe, the one populated with gangsters, smugglers, bounty hunters, and fortune seekers. in 2000, Dark Horse released a new series that featured the many characters from the Underworld, as they embarked on a quest to find The Yavin Vassilika, an ancient artifact of considerable value. Organized by the Hutts, this contest pits the scum of the universe against each other to see who will be the first to get the prize.

This story by Mike Kennedy takes place in between the Han Solo: Rebel Dawn novel and A New Hope, when Han Solo and Chewbacca were still working for Jabba the Hutt, and even alongside Boba Fett! Other characters in this series include Lando Calrissian (who is plenty mad a Solo as originally hinted at in The Empire Strikes Back), Bossk, Dengar,IG-88, Zuckuss, 4-LOM, Greedo, some Jawas, and new characters Jozzel Moffet and Sardu Sallowe. There's plenty of planet-hopping action and character development to be found in this fun series, and the quirky art style of Carlos Meglia and Dave Stewart adds a new dimension to the characters, presenting them in a new light. Each issue features a cover by Andrew Robinson along with a photo cover variant, and are all presented below.
