Come aboard the Khetanna

This artwork shows all the details of Jabba the Hutt's sail barge. Luckily, Luke Skywalker and his friends escape both the barge and the Great Pit of Carkoon. "I think it’s my most technically advanced piece to date," Hagan-Guirey told Crave.

'What if he doesn't survive?'

Boba Fett reminds Darth Vader that Han Solo is worth a lot to him in this scene of Han being frozen in carbonite. "The Empire will compensate you, if he dies," Vader reassures him.
