Star Wars Tales: Krrsantan

Making a little money off the character's appearance in The Book of Fett, the Star Wars Tales: Krrsantan one-shot collects various appearances by the bounty hunter in previously-published Star Wars comics. In terms of bang for you buck, you certainly get quite a bit of action in 112 pages from across three monthly issues and an over-sided annual, although none of the stories aren't likely to be much of a stand-out for anyone but those already fans of the character.

Taking place prior to the original Star Wars, in the first tale Krrsantan is hired by Jabba the Hutt to find Obi-Wan Kenobi on Tatooine who caused Jabba recent trouble. This is the best of the bunch, although the Wookiee only takes place in about half the story. We also see more of Obi-Wan and Owen Lars fighting over Kenobi's attempts to help Luke which we have also seen on Disney+'s Obi-Wan Kenobi.

We get two more tales in the collection. The first takes place prior to The Empire Strikes Back, with Leia captured by the Empire and the Wookiee taking on Han Solo and Chewbacca while attempting to earn Darth Vader's bounty on Luke. The other offers some backstory to the bounty hunter and a chance to get revenge.
