Star Wars: Han Solo & Chewbacca reveals Han Solo’s father isn’t actually Han Solo’s father after all.
Star Wars: Han Solo & Chewbacca #5 comes from writer Marc Guggenheim, artist David Messina, colorist Alex Sinclair and letterer VC’s Joe Caramagna. In Star Wars: Han Solo & Chewbacca #4, Chewbacca faced his Wookie rival, Black Krrsantan, before saving Han Solo from being captured. Much to their dismay, the two of them ran outside only to find the Millenium Falcon, which was being piloted by Han Solo’s supposed “father,” had left without them.

Star Wars Reveals the Shocking Secret of Han Solo’s Father While Han and Chewbacca are picked up by Greedo and his crew at the start of Star Wars: Han Solo & Chewbacca #5, the issue also sees the man posing as Han Solo’s father — who was first introduced in Star Wars: Han Solo & Chewbacca #1 — captured by a marshal named Buck Vancto. “I go looking for Han Solo and I find…a fella claiming to be his father,” Vancto narrates. “Care to know how that happened? It’s a fine little tale. Y’see, I asked Bib Fortuna for a line on Solo. What he gave me instead was information. To wit: a Kajain’sa’Nikto by the name of Vizam telling you about this job Solo was hired to pull for Jabba the Hutt. Long story short, I put it together. Namely, you trying to con Solo out of the urn he was supposed to steal for the Hutt.”
Vancto proceeds to pull a mask off the man while revealing his true identity. “Imagine my surprise, then, when I learned there are six warrants out for…Corbus Tyra,” he says. Near the end of the issue, Han and Chewbacca’s crew show up and rescue Corbus from Vancto. Chewbacca is captured by Vancto before Han can have any kind of confrontation with Corbus, however, and Han is then shot by Greedo when he insists they go after his Wookie partner rather than fly away to safety. While Han’s fate remains unknown, Chewbacca is last seen stuck inside a prison cell with Maz Kanata, a fan-favorite Star Wars: The Force Awakens character.
