Retro Dark Horse: Star Wars: Boba Fett - Twin Engines of Destruction

Star Wars Galaxy Magazine published several Star Wars serials that were turned into one-shots from Dark Horse.  The first one-shot was Tales From Mos Eisley reprinting the comic pages found in Star Wars Galaxy Magazine #2 - 4.  Boba Fett: Twin Engines of Destruction was published in issues #5 - 8 and reprinted in a one-shot in January 1997.

Star Wars: Boba Fett - Twin Engines of Destruction a - Dark Horse Comics, U.S. (January 1997)
The two characters on the cover are Boba Fett and Jodo Kast.  Jodo Kast was created by West End Games for their Star Wars Roleplaying Game and wears Mandalorian Armor painted to look like Boba Fett's.  Believing Fett to be dead, Kast impersonates Boba Fett to collect higher bounties.  In Twin Engines of Destruction, the bounty hunter Dengar contacts Boba Fett after crossing paths with Kast when they both hunt the same target.  Fett sets a trap for Kast on Nal Hutta where Kast is killed.
