Topic: The Force Unleashed 2 Comic - Starring Boba Fett

After digging up the Force Unleashed 2 to play I decided to track down the comic and low and behold it's written from Boba Fett's point of view. Must say I was pretty disappointed in his depiction. He took his helmet off, was with a lady and spoke to Vader unmasked, talk about out of character. Oh well, it was an okay read. Much preferred the novelisation. You can read the comic free online.

Yeah, I read that a little while ago. I liked it EXCEPT (ironically) for most of the Fett parts. The writers just didn't seem to do a great job depicting him as he should be. I think they need to talk to Karen Traviss. Her Bloodlines, Sacrifice, Revelation, and Boba Fett: A Practical Man I thought were very well written and were accurate to the Fett character.

Great review, Net-a-Fett! Thanks for starting off a new topic about this one.

For showing another side of Fett, even though it's not canon and based on a video game, wouldn't you give it some props for trying to develop his character a little bit? After all, we got that bonus scene in ROTJ:SE that he's a ladies man.

Also, just a bit of housekeeping: even though comics may be bootlegged online, let's skip direct links to those. It helps BFFC overall to keep some distance there, so I modified your link a little bit as a compromise.

Very true about the character development, but I just thought that the relationship parts were pretty awkward for the reader. It was odd reading about Fett from that perspective, and I don't like how they made him seem all longing when his sort-of-girlfriend left. It just felt like the sort of thing a weaker character would do.

I'm guessing this was a teaser comic, as there's very little of the actual story from the game. Boba out of his armour just seemed so wrong to me on many levels. I also got sick of seeing Juno's cleavage and looks of abject terror, come on she's supposed to have a spine and some spunk. Anyways, nothing but brain fluff as far as I'm concerned.
