Marvel has unleashed a first look at its upcoming new limited Star Wars comic-book series featuring everyone’s favorite smooth-talking galactic scoundrel: Lando Calrissian.
The new limited Marvel comics series — set to hit the shelves of your favorite comic-book store in July — centers on the previous owner of the Millennium Falcon before he joined up with the Rebel Alliance and became a hero. We’ll get to meet up with some new characters, while Lando tries to pull off the heist of the century. Here’s the synopsis:
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 heist of the century kicks off this July when the can’t miss LANDO #1 comes to comic shops and digital devices!
Star Wars: Lando #1 is penned by Charles Soule (Death of Wolverine), with art by Alex Maleev (Daredevil). Included in the gallery below are some really cool variant covers by Leinil Yu, John Cassady, Alex Ross, Greg Land, Skottie Young and John Tyler Christopher — as well as a few preview pages (sans dialogue, sadly, because: SPOILERS).
