Jango Fett
I'm just a simple man trying to make my way in the universe.

          You know his face. You know his look. You know his voice. But do you really know Jango? His introduction in 2002’s Attack of the Clones totally overhauled everything we thought we know about Boba Fett, basing his character in his, ahem, father. He was hired by Count Dooku to assassinate Padmé Amidala while also serving as the DNA template for the clone army, all while fathering the Original Trilogy’s standout bounty hunter. Need we even mention his jetpack and dual blasters? Jango Fett stands out as a dynamic and mysterious character just waiting to be explored in the Expanded Universe.

           Though the available Jango material is sparse, the stories that exist are a classic example of quality over quantity. Jody Hauser’s recent one-shot is a solid entry that explores Jango simultaneously maintaining his reputation as the best bounty hunter in the galaxy while allowing his young son to tagalong on a dangerous mission. He comes across as quite the antihero in some of the Legends continuity, as does Boba, taking jobs for the sake of his fatherly sense of duty rather than simply for the credits. We see how he can be so dangerously villainous but also having the heroic foundation upon which the wonderfully compelling Army of the Republic would be built.

For the greatest bounty hunter in the galaxy, nothing can stop nothing can stop Jango Fett from getting the job done. But that won’t stop Black Sun, ambitious cantina thugs, massive jungle roaches, Force-sensitive primitives, and fellow other bounty hunter Zam Wesell from trying. Because both Jango and Zam have been hired to steal an ancient and powerful artifact from an unknown world, and neither of them wants to miss out on the payday.

A solitary figure, clad in the distinctive armor of a Mandalorian Warrior, cuts through a throng of soldiers, bounty hunters, and cutthroats, unleashing a barrage of blaster fire with graceful, cold-blooded dexterity. This could only be the most notorious assassin in the galaxy: Jango Fett! This Christmas, Dark Horse Comics is giving you something you've always wanted, a glimpse of Boba Fett, the most mysterious and beloved of all the Star Wars rogues. First you'll meet Jango Fett, a bounty hunter and killer for hire who is looking for a lucrative job. When Jango is hired to recover a rare and extremely valuable artifact, he thinks this could be his biggest score. Only one obstacle stands between him and his prize: a beautiful and deadly rival!

Being a bounty hunter is all about one thing: getting the job done in order to get a paycheck. But Zam Wessell and Jango Fett come face to face with the ugly consequences of always working in the morally grey area. For once, the bounty hunters might just be the heroes the galaxy needs.

Zam Wesell is everything you'd want in a girl: beauty, intelligence, style, the ability to strip and assemble an EE-3 blaster rifle in less than six seconds… She really does have it all. It's no wonder that she has caught the eye of fellow bounty hunter, Jango Fett. Jango is going to need her help in finding and destroying a powerful artifact that could prove to be very destructive if it fell into the wrong hands. Though he isn't usually this sentimental, he wants to make sure the galaxy is safe for his young son. However, Zam's motivations are not so noble. She plans to sell the artifact to the highest bidder. If they can't trust each other and they've got every bounty hunter and cutthroat in the galaxy gunning for them, who can they trust?

How did Jango Fett come to wear the Mandalorian armor? How did he wind up in business with Count Dooku? This story from The Force Unleashed’s Hayden Blackman from 2002 features Clone Wars staples such as Concord Dawn, Death Watch, and clan Visla and is in many ways a Jango Fett origin story.

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've 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.

Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones

Written by
R.A. Salvatore
Artwork by

Ten years have passed since Obi Wan Kenobi defeated the mysterious Sith warrior on Naboo. His apprentice, Anakin Skywalker, has grown into a young man with exceptional potential in the Force. However, as tensions in galactic politics reach a boiling point, Obi Wan must allow Anakin to undertake a mission on his own to protect Padmé Amidala from those seeking to assassinate her. He can only hope his young apprentice will continue to walk the path of a Jedi while out from under his tutelage…

RA Salvatore, celebrated science fiction/fantasy author, delivers a wonderful rendition of the second film in the Prequel Trilogy. With just enough small changes to keep even veteran fans of the saga on their toes, this novelization is an absolute must-read.

There is a great disturbance in the Force. . . . From the sleek ships of the glimmering Coruscant skyscape to the lush gardens of pastoral Naboo, dissent is roiling. The Republic is failing, even under the leadership of Supreme Chancellor Palpatine, elected ten years earlier to save the crumbling government. Separatists threaten war, and the Senate is hopelessly divided, unable to determine whether to raise an army for battle or keep the fragile peace. It is a stalemate that once broken, could lead to galactic chaos.

Mischievous and resolved, courageous to the point of recklessness, Anakin Skywalker has come of age in a time of great upheaval. The nineteen-year-old apprentice to Obi-Wan Kenobi is an enigma to the Jedi Council, and a challenge to his Jedi Master. Time has not dulled Anakin’s ambition, nor has his Jedi training tamed his independent streak. When an attempt on Senator Padmé Amidala’s life brings them together for the first time in ten years, it is clear that time also has not dulled Anakin’s intense feelings for the beautiful diplomat.

The attack on Senator Amidala just before a crucial vote thrusts the Republic even closer to the edge of disaster. Masters Yoda and Mace Windu sense enormous unease. The dark side is growing, clouding the Jedi’s perception of the events. Unbeknownst to the Jedi, a slow rumble is building into the roar of thousands of soldiers readying for battle. But even as the Republic falters around them, Anakin and Padmé find a connection so intense that all else begins to fall away. Anakin will lose himself—and his way—in emotions a Jedi, sworn to hold allegiance only to the Order, is forbidden to have.
