Jabba the Hutt #1 is a fun little Jabba story about some Tusken Raider moonshine. They call it the Tatooine Wind, and everyone wants it, especially when it’s 10,000 credits a bottle. However, the Tusken Raiders aren’t selling it to outsiders, and neither is Jabba. But that won’t stop people from trying.

At the core of the story is Jabba’s relationship with the Tusken Raiders. They come to him with a problem, and it’s up to Jabba to fix it. The Jawas and the Imperials have been encroaching on their land, and they want the slug to stop the issue. Meanwhile, there’s some people who want to buy some Tatooine Wind, but Jabba denies them. However, he let’s slip where to find it. Word gets around, and soon everyone shows up to steal the stuff. Chaos ensues. It provides for a fun little story with action and lots of aliens.

The artwork is good. Surprisingly, the large team of artists manage to blend their art styles together enough that the shift from one artist to another is not too shocking or jarring, so you don’t get thrown from the story. You can definitely see the shifts if you stop to look for them, but otherwise it’s somewhat subtle. My only complaint there is there is one panel of a Gamorrean guard where the colorist messed up when coloring their helmet as part of it is green that shouldn’t be.

With a good story and good artwork, this one is worth checking out. As a one shot, it’s a fun little story. I give it a four out of five metal bikinis.
