We’ve been waiting for official word on when Lando Calrissian would be getting his own comic series, and Marvel has finally revealed the release date.
Before there was Cloud City, before he joined the Rebellion – there was just Lando. Trying to make his own way in an unfriendly galaxy with some swindles, some swagger and an irresistible smile. With his trusty companion Lobot at his side, he’s on a mission to steal one of the galaxy’s most valuable objects. But has he bitten off more than he can chew?
The premise sounds very interesting, and with Lando’s appearance on Star Wars: Rebels, it will be interesting to see how it all ties together. I’m hoping the series last long enough so we see how he becomes the Baron Administrator of Cloud City.
Lando #1 is written by Charles Soule, with art by Alex Maleev. The first issue arrives on July 8, 2015, and I’m already putting it on my Major Spoilers Staff Picks for that week!*
