Marvel Announces New Star Wars Comic Focusing on Lando Calrissian

Ahead of the true festivities beginning at Star Wars Celebration, Lucasfilm and Marvel have announced another new Star Wars comic that will begin this summer with “Star Wars: Lando.” “She-Hulk” and “Swamp Thing” writer Charles Soule is set to pen the comic which will feature art by Alex Maleev (“Daredevil,” “Moon Knight”).

“Is Lando Calrissian the coolest character in all of Star Wars? Depends on who you ask, probably. But if you ask me, the answer is yes, and I plan to prove it with this story,” says series writer Soule. “Before Cloud City, before his glorious Death Star run, Lando Calrissian was just a man trying to make his way through an uncaring universe determined not to recognize that he was undeniably the coolest man in the galaxy. But Lando’s got a plan to change all that… and it starts with the deal of a lifetime.”

Developed in association with Lucasfilm, the series will focus on Lando’s days before becoming a hero with a plan to steal one of the galaxy’s most valuable ships, all with his trusty sidekick Lobot at his side. Set to debut this July, you can check out the cover art for the series below.
