    Is this comic book any good? Or at least as good as Jango Fett : Open Seasons ?

    http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/1569716242/ref=lib_dp_TFCV/103-0781205-1876602?v=glance&s=books&vi=reader#reader-link ( Sorry, link won't work )

    I'm tempted to buy it. Is it short? Or as long as Open Seasons? ( about 60 pages ) I can't find much information on it. Any help is much appreciated. :)

    Zam Wessel GN is good, imo, but make sure you get the Jango Fett GN along with it, as both are needed for the complete story.

    I think Yarael Poof is killed in the Zam Wessel GN.

    Yes, Yarael Poof gets it in the Zam GN. The Jango Fett GN is part 1 of the story, the Zam Wesell GN is part 2. Over here in the UK
    MVC (music/video store) gave these out for free with the AOTC DVD and VHS on the first day of sale. It's a good story, but I liked Open Seasons more since it fleshed out Jango's character.

    The sight of Yarael Poof weilding a lightsaber just doesn't work. Quermians were not ment to weild lightsabers.

    I thought the graphic novel was satisfactory. I just keep hoping that Lucasbooks will do more with her character sometime in the future, instead of her appearances in the "Jango Fett" G.N., her own G.N., and her all-too-abrupt appearance in "Attack of the Clones".

    I didn't like the artists drawing style. Open Seasons is much better.

    Open Seasons was cool. It was cool to see Jango's rise to fame and the end of the Madalorians.

    It was not the end of the mandalorians actually, :). Just one group of the mandalorians.

    I'd get them if you're a fan of Bounty Hunter action. They have a few nice Jango/Boba moments in them, as well as lots of action scenes. Make sure you get the Jango GN as well though, because it's a critical part of the story.

    If you're a bounty hunter fan, go check out the next Tales. I think that's # 17 and it's about Boba Fett. (I think)
