Modern Antarctic Press: Steam Wars: Bounty Hunters #1 and 2

Steam Wars: Bounty Hunters #1 and 2 continue to showcase characters that are based on character visuals from Star Wars while telling a unique story.

Steam Wars: Bounty Hunters #1a - Antarctic Press, U.S. (October 2015)
The main bounty hunter character shown on the cover to Steam Wars: Bounty Hunters #1 is clearly based on Boba Fett.  The helmet, backpack, antenna, shoulder cape, and emblems all make it clear who this character is.  The female chained in the foreground is meant to evoke images of Princess Leia as Jabba's captive.  The droid has a striking resemblance to IG-88.

Steam Wars: Bounty Hunters #2a - Antarctic Press, U.S. (December 2015)
The cover for Steam Wars: Bounty Hunters #2 is very similar to the first cover.  The colors are more washed out.  The main bounty hunter character has raised his gun and the female is no longer chained.
