Boba and the Sarlacc

It’s one thing to know that Boba Fett doesn’t actually get consumed by the Sarlacc even though he’s dumped into it during the great escape of Luke, Han and Chewie as Jabba and his minions look on.

But it’s an entirely different thing to read the story and actually know what happens while he’s in the creature’s stomach. To find out what he finds out.

I have anticipated reading this story for… I don’t really know how long. A part of me knew that it was in Tales from Jabba’s Palace, but I suppose that I had forgotten or blocked it out so it would be a bigger surprise. Because when I came upon it, I got really excited.

Here was this story that would fill in the blanks between what I know happens before, and what happens after. AKA – Boba goes on to be a badass, and does really cool things filled with badassery.

It was only made that much better by the fact that the writer was really good. REALLY good. I didn’t find one part of the story boring. And I think even if it hadn’t had anything to do with Boba Fett, that I would have felt the same way. It was just an all around well done job.

Am I going to give away any of the secrets? Oh hell no. If you want to find out what happens to Boba while he’s in the stomach of the Sarlacc, you’ll just have to read for yourself. Besides, anything I would tell you would only spoil the whole thing.
