This book collects together the following comic stories:
  • The Gaar Suppoon Hit
    Jabba the Hutt lives to negotiate, and the art of the deal is his only discipline. But the goods he trades are the lives of others, and in that line of business you can't lose your head. In this self-contained story, Jabba finds himself bartering with Garr Suppoon, rumored to be an absolute devil at the negotiating table. There's a valuable lesson to be learned here: In a deal with the devil, you can always refuse. In a deal with Jabba, it's not advised.

  • The Hunger of Princess Nampi
    Jabba has an old saying: If you can't beat 'em, buy 'em out! And that's just what he attempts to do when he encounters an unexpected nemesis on his journey through the galaxy. But he may have to part with something more personal than his precious spice if he's going to close this deal!

  • The Dynasty Trap
    Jabba has got a hot freighter on his hands and he's looking to unload it, quickly and discreetly. Enter Cabrool Nuum, a second-hand ship trader whose reputation for discretion is as long as his many years in the business. Unfortunately for Jabba, the years seem to have caught up with Cabrool, and his murderous offspring have taken advantage of the old man's dotage, just as they plan to take advantage of Jabba's impending arrival! In a seedy corner of the galaxy, on a planet of back-stabbing opportunists, Jabba the Hutt is about to land face first in The Dynasty Trap!

  • Betrayal
    Everyone hopes to get a big break someday, move up to the top seat in their line of work. But when that line of work is intergalactic crime, you've got to make your own breaks. Bib Fortuna, Jabba's loyal lieutenant, has plotted a slave revolt against the Hutt. We've seen how Jabba handles negotiations -- now we'll see how he handles Betrayal.

These stories occur approximately 5 years before the Battle of Yavin.
