Every single issue is full of that signature Lando humor we love so much from the movies and ends with a great cliffhanger In this graphic novel he kinda reminded me of Steve McQueen in the Thomas Crown Affair They are both capable of not only pulling off a perfect crime but also making sweet love to the ladies.Lando is one of my favorite characters from the original trilogy mostly because he is so underrated Plus he wears cool capes Not bad at all and the iconic character played by Billy Dee Williams always been a fan favourite of mine, but this volume was just as not as good as other recent Marvel Star Wars series main one and Vader and secondary characters were muchinteresting than Lando for me.Still a good read if you wanna read a lost tale in the past of the sexy smiling smuggler before he became the Baron Administrator of Cloud City and a general for the Rebel Alliance Not bad at all and the iconic character played by Billy Dee Williams always been a fan favourite of

ofsubstance than the droid like incarnation of the original films I really enjoyed the extra layer of depth to him and gained an appreciation for how much he means to Lando.Lobot isn t the only character to feature prominently, whilst Palaptine s presence is omnipresent largely due to Lando stealing his luxury personal cruiser , there s a bunch of new characters which are all given ample time to shine such as bounty hunter Chanath Cha, muscle for hire Aleskin and Pavol, and academic Korin.Author Charles Soule captured Lando perfectly that balance between humor and seriousness pulled off to perfection and the art by Alex Maleev was on point all culminating in an engrossing tale of one of the many adventures Lando and co have undertaken across the Star Wars universe My rating 5 5 I enjoyed every page and am looking forward to readingLando Star Wars fans should definitely pick this up The first thing that struck me about this book was that artist Alex Maleev had significantly changed his style for it I don t know if it was an intentional thing or whether working in the Star Wars universe rather than Marvel s street level arena forced his hand see what I did there Whichever it was, I like it His line work is cleaner and he can t get away with using photographs for his backgrounds in a galaxy far, far away.As for the story, well, it started out OK The first three issues w

five was a solid punch to the gut Genuinely moving stuff view spoiler I d actually rename this book The Tragedy Of Lobot if it weren t an enormous spoiler hide spoiler I know I ll never see that character the same way again when I watch The Empire Strikes Back and that s good writing, my friends.7 10 rounded up to four stars A character study in charm, luck, and allowing one s egoism to culminate in the destruction of everything you love a much deeper, darker portrayal of the Lando we love. Obviously, Marvel is a business and is going to make the most of their exclusive Star Wars license Fair enough Make a list of ten Star Wars characters you d like to see get their own comic book miniseries Is Lando Calrissian on that list He isn t on mine He isn t even in my top fifteen Where the hell is my Wedge Antilles and or Rogue Squadron book For that matter, I d pay real cash money in the currency of Marvel s choice for a Biggs Darklighter mini Yes, Poe Dameron is coming, now, but Obviously, Marvel is a business and is going to make the most of their exclusive Star Wars license

first Ok, fine, whatever, I guess I don t hate Lando, and I actually kind of like him, in small doses And it could be worse It could be Greedo.Probably, theyou like Lando, theyou ll like this book I like him ok, as an occasional character, but get bored with him after sustained screen time Which is essentially exactly what happened here And it s an ok story, but it never really rises beyond just ok The heist aspects are kind of fun, but the whole story revolves around a premise that I found somewhat implausible Namely, that the notoriously careful Palpatine would keep priceless and incredibly powerful Sith artifacts anywhere that wasn t within his control at all times On his private yacht while it was out for repairs That s sort of like storing a cursed diamond ring in the glove box of your car when you send it in for an oil change It s not totally impossible, sure, and it didn t totally ruin the book for me, but it was kind of nagging at the back of my mind while I read.What you should really take away from this review is that I m a sucker who s going to read all of these Star Wars comics, even if I m skeptical about the character and the premise, until I get to one that s truly awful I m going to read the Chewbacca one I have a problem But you can learn from me If you love or even really like Lando, by all means, read his miniseries You ll probably have a good time But if he isn t one of your favorite characters, there s absolutely nothing in here that will make him so I remember Lando Calrissian from arguably the best Star Wars film, The Empire Strikes Back You must as well or you wouldn t be reading this So, we all recall that our Star Wars heroes fled to Bespin and Cloud City, a place administered by Lando who was wary of anyone who would get the Empire s attention focused on him Previously, Lando had won Cloud City in a game of sabacc Lando is a gambler and his life is chaotic Whether his skills are sufficient to save him is a guess at any point You I

his long time friend, Lobot, and the aid of two cloned alien warriors, and an Ugnaught antiquities expert, he has set off on what should ve been an easy job Their target was an Imperial luxury yacht undergoing a refit.at a shipyard circling the planet Castell The heist was successful unbeknownst to Lando, the ship actually belongs to Emperor Palpatine Why did I grab this off the shelf Probably to get in the mood for another Star Wars prequel, Rogue One Lando is easy to understand when he is flush he likes the good things in life including beautiful companions, fancy places and the opportunity to gamble When he is down and out, he uses his thieving skills, shady friends and his penchant for gambling to try to reverse his fortunes Sort of a Han Solo without any detectable social conscience One of the connections with other story lines is the presence of Chanath Cha, a human female Her career as a bounty hunter involved mostly big paying clients and she was frequently hired by the Galactic Empire, itself for secret missions She has a prior history with Lobot and Lando Here the stakes are higher than ever for everybody when it becomes evident that what the ship is carrying is evenimportant than its ownership.An easy, quick, and enjoyable plot, with artwork that is adequate to good, but you are reading it because you like Lando He is the same guy you came to know with his

his side, Lando has a plan to steal a very valuable ship But has he bitten off than he can chew One of the galaxy s deadliest, most effective trackers is on his tail, and the heist of a lifetime has become a fight to survive Lando and Lobot took this gig for the easy payday but if they make it through alive, they ll never be the same It s the tale of a scoundrel in his natural element trouble

Skywalker Strikes , which worked partially because was an ensemble piece with lots of familiar faces from the film series Lando gathers a crew for a heist, but he bites offthan he can chew Can Lando s quick talking and people skills get him out of this fix Well, this happens before the Empire Strikes Back, so I guess the answer is obvious The story is fine, but nothing special However, I did enjoy seeing Lobot get a bigger role than he got in the movies Ever since I was a child, I have been a fan of Lobot, for some reason I still can t understand Call me when Lobot gets his spin off series.
