Format: Paperback
Open Seasons is one of those comics that is highly recommended reading. This is where you'll find Jango Fett's backstory, which seamlessly ties into what little is known of his cloned son Boba Fett, and his Jaster Mereel alto ego. The comic derives its name from the four issues subtitled after the four seasons of winter, spring, summer, fall, and provides reason for Montross's animosity in the Bounty Hunter console game.
The artwork here is just superb. Colours shine off the page, illustrations are depthful, more 3Dish than the standard fare you get, what more could you want? I strongly believe that comics, being the visual material they are, must have the best artwork possible, to show what a standard novel can only express in words. If that's the case, Open Seasons is gold.
The dialogue is up to par. Could have benefited with more humour, but the cast worked well for given characters. Then again, given the nature of the plot, too much would have detracted from the persona of Jango Fett.
The storyline is your typical coming of age: peaceful youth avenging the death of parents and a shattered childhood, forged into one of the galaxy's finest bounty hunters. The setting is soon after Phantom Menace, Dooku recounting to his master Sidious why Fett makes the ideal prime clone for their clandestine operations. It even provides some explanation for why Dooku himself--if you can believe the old man--broke from the Jedi Order.
You see what Jango is made of here in the Galidraan debacle, where the Jedi and Mandalorians have it out. You'd get the impression the Jedi really are dependant on their saber sticks to be dangerous, as though that made any difference to the Fett. Does leaving you wondering in AOTC if script limitations hadn't necessitated Mace Windu to survive Fett.

I do know what to say about the art work. I own every Darkhorse TPB comic and this one has the best inks and coloring of them all, getting a 6 on a 5 scale. The drawing itself is a 4 on a 5 scale, and the story is also a 4.
the story missed some oportunity here, but it does address what you are probably curious about with regard to jango.
Darkhorse be warned, I'll expect this kind of quality in the future. I have suffered through lazy editioning from you guys, most disappointingly in UNION and others.

Nothing really mind blowing but for Star Wars fans it's good. It is a solid read but not reaching the level of a classic that might appeal to casual fans. Good, not great. Art is great, story is good. I bet 99% of the people reading this review will enjoy the book.

Jango Fett rocks so hard!

This book shows Jango Fett's true origin story and where he came from before he was in the Mandalorians and just what happened to him before his appearance in Attack of the Clones.

***SPOILERS*** ***SPOILERS*** ***SPOILERS***

So Jango was a little kid on a farming planet with his parents when the Mandalorians showed up and killed them because his dad was harboring a guy the Mandos were looking for. The Mandos then give him the choice of being left behind all by himself and with no family or to come with them.

He goes with them and is trained by them to become the master bounty hunter that he is when he is recruited by Dooku to become the template that is used for all the clone troopers.

Jango goes from being a Mandalorian warrior, to being the last man standing of them, he's captured by the Jedi and turned over to the authorities, then sold into slavery, he escapes and gets a complete set of Mandalorian armor and heads out looking for his revenge. He finds the people who sold him out, the Death Watch, a group of Mandalorians that believe they should rule because they are so big and bad and tough.

Jango wipes them out and then becomes the bounty hunter that he is today. He is approached by Dooku who Jango tricks by poisoning him with a disease that only he can cure. Dooku agrees to his demands if Jango will tell him how he got out of a bad situation many years ago. In the end Jango agrees to the deal that Dooku offers. Dooku doesn't need the cure cuz he used the Force to cure the disease himself.

Of course Jango makes one additional demand, to have his unaltered clone, Boba Fett.

This was another great prologue to Attack of the Clones and is worth every penny!

This book really delivers on the mysterious and wonderful character Jango Fett. He is a legendary Mandalorian warrior who witnessed his whole mercenary army being wiped out by the Jedi. Beautiful illistrations. The best illustrator who could draw "Mandalorian armor" to date. A great story line, and really stresses the fact that Jango is a neutral, fearless warrior.

Possibly one of the best graphic novels I've ever read. Shows the story of how Jango's family is killed and how he joined the Mandalorians. Excellent story (but it felt a little short) that explains alot about why Jango is who he is. Great pictures, dialogue, everything. A great read for Fett fans.

This collection is a great backstory for those who've read the Republic Commando series by Karen Traviss. It highlights the beginnings of Jango Fett and his reasoning for becoming the clone template for the Republic Army. Would recommend for anyone interested in the Jango and Boba and the Republic clone story.
