Star Wars Underworld: The Yavin Vassilika (Star Wars)by Mike Kennedy
Synopses & Reviews
When three Hutts place a wager on who can raise the most successful squad of henchmen to procure a highly valuable, mythical treasure, the most conniving rogues of the Star Wars Universe are recruited. Following a lead provided by Jozzel Moffet, a Hutt's slave girl, three teams set out to be the first to find the mysterious Yavin Vassilika. Boba Fett, Han Solo, Chewbacca, Lando, Dengar, IG-88, and others square off to decide who is the best scoundrel in the galaxy! They're hot on each other's trails, trying to stay alive and get a step ahead of the pack. The competitors dodge lasers and search for clues on the planet Kalkovak, attempt to stay afloat on the high seas of Mon Calamari, and become victims of a primitive culture's ritualistic "Cleansing of the Foul" on a backwater planet beyond the Outer Rim. The seductive Jozzel Moffet, wanting to free herself from a life of dancing and Hutt-washing, is moonlighting for a secret fourth investor and is hoping to get the Vassilika from whichever team is left standing. There are grudges galore in this hectic and humorous mad-dash, brought to you by fan-favorite Carlos Meglia (SpyBoy, Crimson, W.I.L.D.Cats) and writer Mike Kennedy (Ghost/Batgirl).
San Francisco-based creative Mike Kennedy was a full-time video game developer and aspiring writer when he first began going to comic book conventions in 1988. A self-proclaimed enthusiast of noir fiction and the darker elements of storytelling, Kennedy eventually accepted his first comics writing assignment for the long-running Dark Horse series Ghost in 1999. The following year, Kennedy's top-flight writing skills were called upon when Dark Horse, teamed with NY-based publisher DC Comics, set out to find the perfect person to script a ground-breaking cross-over series between the two companies' deadliest femme fatales, Dark Horse's Ghost and DC's Batgirl. With Ghost/Batgirl: The Resurrection Engine, Kennedy proved his mettle as an incredibly talented and multi-faceted writer, and the crime-riddled cities called Arcadia and Gotham haven't been the same since.
