Book Description

Dec 24 2002 Star Wars (Dark Horse)
He was born a poor farm boy on a forgotten planet in the galaxy's Outer Rim. Taken under the wing of a wise mentor after the violent death of his family, he would rise up to lead a band of fighters struggling for survival against a dark force that threatens to wipe them out completely. His name would become known throughout the systems, and his legacy would change the galaxy forever. But his name isn't Skywalker…It's Jango Fett! The Sith have begun the final maneuvering in their quest to take over the galaxy and are looking for the perfect specimen to take part in their secret experiments. Lord Tyranus may have just found a prime candidate in Jango. Recounting Jango's story from his early days on the Fett farm, through the annihilation of the once proud Mandalorian warriors, to his transformation into the galaxy's most feared bounty hunter, Open Seasons offers an in-depth look at the most exciting new character from Attack of the Clones, and details the beginning of the infamous Fett legacy—one that would come back to plague the Rebellion a generation later.

4.0 out of 5 stars A must purchase Oct. 20 2003
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fett is in the House! June 15 2003
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Ink and Coloring Award May 24 2003
Format:Paperback
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars wow. March 15 2003
Format:Paperback
I've read most of the Star Wars comics, and this one is among the best. Open Seasons interweaves the story of Jaster and Concord Dawn (known to Fett fans) with the events prior to Geonosis.
The story is very involving, although I wish it had been longer. A few things were glossed over pretty quickly. But it was a refreshing change from Kevin Anderson's usual soulless SW tales. I had a few "goose-bump" moments.
What can I say about the art? Like Jedi vs. Sith, some will think that it is too cartoony. I disagree. The artist captured action and emotion, and that's what this is about...telling a story through art. Personally, I adored it. I hope Dark Horse uses this guy, and fires the Sith Empire folks. Kudos also for the colors. (The lightsabers really seemed to glow!)
All in all Open Seasons is gorgeous. Buy it.

Just a few trivialties here. Jango looks more lighter complexioned than he did on the screen. Without enough names in dialogue, it does make it challenging to identify your Mandalorian in near-identical uniforms. Most annoying, why do these people always have to be farmboys (Luke, Baron Fel, Jango, etc)? And the biggest one of all: at the end, when Jango flies across space to crash through a ship's bridge viewports, in a vacuum without breathing or decompression?!
Overall, with art quality and storyline this good, Open Seasons is one fine gift to get, and definitely worth getting.

5.0 out of 5 stars I'm just a simple man, trying to make my way in the universe.- Jango Fett Dec 4 2005
By Z. Stern - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Legacy of the Mandalorians Oct. 4 2012
By zombie phreak - Published on Amazon.com
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.

***END SPOILERS*** ***END SPOILERS*** ***END SPOILERS***

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