Star Wars: Boba Fett – Twin Engines of Destruction (1997) #1

Boba Fett is the most feared, most respected bounty hunter in the galaxy. He only cares about two things: his money and his reputation. So when he discovers someone has been impersonating him, he decides to teach his inferior dopplegänger exactly why he’s the most feared, most respected bounty hunter in the galaxy! It’s Boba Fett vs. Boba Fett!

Jodo Kast was a member of Alliance SpecOps who became a bounty hunter in the Galactic Civil War. Kast wore Mandalorian armor similar to Boba Fett’s, while he was not a Mandalorian himself. Having once modeled his career after Boba Fett, Kast later established himself as a rival to Fett, concerning himself with building his reputation. Forsaking even the rules of his profession, Kast took Fett’s name for the sake of higher-paying jobs while setting the goal for himself of taking Fett’s place in the top echelons of bounty hunting. Kast’s impersonation of Fett eventually caught up with him, though, when the other bounty hunter sought to reclaim his own reputation. Fett baited a trap on Nal Hutta, using an alias to offer a bounty on a nonexistent man. When Kast came to Nal Hutta, Fett attacked and defeated him, leaving Kast to be killed by his own exploding jetpack.
