Star Wars 28: What Ever Happened to Jabba the Hut? is the twenty-eighth issue in the Marvel Star Wars series of comics.

Plot summaryEdit

The rough re-entry of the Millennium Falcon from hyperspace after escape from a Star Destroyer prompts Han Solo and Chewbacca to land on the Mid Rim world Orleon, a smuggler's hideout constantly besieged by rain. As Han and Chewbacca made repairs, the Wookiee noted the cavern they had sheltered the Falcon in leaked from the roof.

Han and Chewbacca's attention was diverted by the arrival of Jabba the Hut [sic] (here depicted, as in other Marvel Star Wars comics, as a tall, slim Nimbanel with yellow skin.) While Jabba's forces assaulted the cavern to drive Han and Chewbacca into the open, the two smugglers were faced with another problem: the entire cavern ceiling was infested with stone mites, living weapons from the Clone Wars that could eat through anything.

The stone mites poured onto the Falcon, and Han and Chewbacca barely made it on board. Attempts to burn the stone mites off the Falcon surface failed because all the rock around them was infested with them. Han then had the idea of Chewbacca using the Falcon dorsal laser cannons to blast away the cavern roof which the stone mites had "eaten" into a shell. The Falcon escaped through the blasted surface and left Orleon, where they confronted Jabba the Hut's ship. From transmissions between the Falcon and Jabba's Voidraker, it's learned that one of Jabba's crew allowed stone mites to get into his weapon and brought them on board. As the only survivor, Jabba pleads with Han for sanctuary on the Falcon. Jabba jets over in his flight suit, but Han's "payment" for allowing the Hut sanctuary (on the ship, not in it) is that his and Chewbacca's debts are canceled.

Behind the scenesEdit

Jabba's Databank entry states that "While this particular version of these events didn't happen, it is still possible that the Orleon incident did occur."[3]

At the time of this issue's release, all official publications spelled "Hutt" with one "t". The official spelling did not change to "Hutt" until 1983.

The article "Red Five" in Star Wars Insider 149 establishes that the "Jabba" in the Marvel comics is in fact Jabba's Nimbanel accountant Mosep Bineed, who sometimes used Jabba's name in interactions.
