Scott, who is the writer of Marvel’s Star Wars: The High Republic series (see “‘Star Wars: The High Republic’ Publishing Campaign Coming in 2020”) reaches back into Star Wars history for his story: He is resurrecting the hoojibs, rabbit-like creatures who were mentioned for the first time in Star Wars #55, which came out in 1981. After that issue, which was written by David Michelinie and penciled by Walter Simonson, the hoojibs dropped out of sight. Scott will bring them back in the annual, this time as a gift from Han Solo to Jabba the Hut. In the other story in this issue, some children find a rare and valuable coin think they are in the money, until the real owner shows up: Lando Calrissian.
The 48-page annual will go on sale on November 24 with an MSRP of $7.99. The main cover is by Florean, and there’s also a retailer incentive cover by Loo.
