Star Wars: Jango Fett #4 – Cover: Tony S. Daniel (Marvel)

Spoiler Warning: The following review contains spoilers for Jango Fett: Trail of Lost Hope Part 4. If you’d prefer to experience this story firsthand, consider this your heads-up.

Jango Fett: Trail of Lost Hope Part 4,” (penned by Ethan Sacks with art by Luke Ross and coloring by Nolan Woodard) is a thrilling continuation in the Star Wars saga.

It spotlights the underrepresented characters Jango Fett and Aurra Sing two of the most intriguing yet underdeveloped characters in the Star Wars mythos.

These two have long deserved more context and backstory, and this comic delivers just that. Jango Fett finally gets his moment to shine as a bounty hunter, and his portrayal is spot-on. I could practically hear Temuera Morrison’s voice as I read the dialogue.

It perfectly matched the characters vibe in Episode II. The action sequences were well-crafted, and the pacing was executed wonderfully by Sacks.

Story Synopsis

In the previous issue, it was revealed that both Aurra Sing and Jango Fett were set up in their quest to find the “Hope of Glee Anselm Statue.” That quest turned out to be a fake.

The comic opens with a HoloNet news relay station where employees are discussing a possible war breaking out across the galaxy, eerily foreshadowing the impending Clone Wars. Jango and Aurra break into the station to review recordings from the initial robbery.

After capturing the thief Nakano Lash, Jango shows a surprising nobility by giving Lash some good advice and letting him go. He acknowledges Lash’s honorable motivations and encourages him to keep making a difference in the galaxy but to be smarter about it.


Back on their ship, Aurra comments on Jango’s knack for dealing with kids and asks if he’s ever considered having a child. Jango replies that a bounty hunter’s life is no place for a child, but maybe one day. It subtly foreshadows his future as Boba Fett’s father.

A massive battle of the bounty hunters ensues on Jaloria, led by Vigor Struk, who seeks to settle a vendetta with Jango. Jango and Aurra partner up extremely well and complement each other’s skill set in battle. Together, they seemingly defeat Struk by blasting him into the sky. The battle is masterfully drawn and packed with action, maintaining suspense and momentum throughout. The colorist’s rendering of the explosions and bright colorings were particularly eye-catching. The details in Struk’s face drawing were impeccable, reminiscent of The Terminator’s half-human, half-robot look.

Jango and Aurra uncover a conspiracy involving the theft of the statue by Ambassador Fiarok. They find the statue in his guest room, though the royal gems are missing—revealed to be in Aurra Sing’s bag in a separate panel.

In a final twist, Jango confronts Governor Tok about her quick trust in the flimsy circumstantial evidence provided against Fiarok. This conflict is revealed to be just one thread in a tapestry being weaved by Count Dooku. The plan is to destabilize the Republic, undermine Chancellor Valorum, and pave the way for Palpatine’s rise to power. Dooku appears via hologram, commending Jango’s discretion and competence, foreshadowing his future as the template for the Republic’s Clone Army.

Art and Writing

The narrative is wonderfully written. Ethan Sacks strikes a perfect balance between multiple themes and creating a well-rounded, engaging story. Luke Ross’s artwork is exceptional, bringing the characters and action sequences to life with intricate details and dynamic compositions. Nolan Woodard’s coloring enhances the visual experience, particularly in the vibrant battle scenes and the subtle character expressions.

Final Thoughts

Jango Fett: Trail of Lost Hope Part 4” is a complete and compelling narrative that adds depth to Jango Fett’s character and expands the Star Wars mythos. The story is engaging from start to finish, with excellent writing, stunning art, and beautiful coloring.

Grade: 10/10
