From the Back Cover
Enter the lair of the galaxy's most notorious criminal in nineteen stories from todays masters of science fiction.
In the dusty heat of twin-sunned Tatooine lives the wealthiest gangster in a hundred worlds, master of a vast crime empire and keeper of a vicious, flesh-eating monster for entertainment (and disposal of his enemies). Bloated and sinister, Jabba the Hutt might have made a good joke - if he weren't so dangerous. A cast of soldiers, spies, assassins, scoundrels, bounty hunters, and pleasure seekers have come to his palace, and every visitor to Jabba's grand abode has a story. Some of them may even live to tell it...

Excellent back stories to all the bounty hunters we know, or at least have heard of, and it gives us a new and vaster insight into the world of Star Wars...bought it to get me through boring days and ended up reading it all the time!
I found this to be and it kept me coming back for me. It was great to find out about the minor characters such as The Gamorrean Guard and Bib Fortuna.
If you like Star Wars and are not familiar with the novels then start with this one.
always very unclear. Who is Boba Fett? How come he keeps turning up in the movies? Did he really die in ROTJ, etc. etc.
Like all of the "tales" books, I'd recommend this book to any Star Wars fan, especially users of Public Transport, because the stories are perfectly sized for the bus into work.
This is without doubt the best Tales of the Jedi novel out there. There's more combat than in any other graphic novel out there, with several fantastic lightsaber battles.
In keeping with its predecessors, the artwork is fabulous and the dialogue is sharp.
If you must own any Star Wars graphic novel, make it this one!
