Highly ecommend if you like Lando Looking forward to the inevitablerecommend if you like Lando Looking forward to the inevitable Fett solo series Or even the Han Solo solo series Well Marvel know what you want because heeeeeere s Lando Oh Lando s not a bad character He s not a great character either but it could ve been worse can you imagine giving.

I thought this graphic novel was great Pre A New Hope we get a glimpse into the swindler that is Lando a charismatic criminal whose loyalty to his inner circle is unuestionable and whose thirst for a uick credit unuenchable Lobot the bit character from Cloud City is given a decent amount of page time enough to ender the character into one of substance than the droid like incarnation of the original films I The A-List Diet Fitness Plan really enjoyed the extra layer of depth to him and gained an appreciation for how much he means to LandoLobot 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 KorinAuthor 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 Myating 55 I enjoyed every page and am looking forward to The Amethyst Road reading Lando Star Wars fans should definitely pick this up 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 andor Rogue Suadron book For that matter I d payeal cash money in the currency of Marvel s choice for a Biggs Darklighter mini Yes Poe Dameron is coming now but Lando first Ok fine whatever I guess I don t hate Lando and I
ACTUALLY KIND OF LIKE HIM INkind of like him in doses And it could be worse It could be GreedoProbably the you like Lando the you 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 happened here And it an ok story but it never The King's Cardinal: The Rise and Fall of Thomas Wolsey reallyises beyond just ok The heist aspects are kind of fun but the whole story The Lupus Encyclopedia: A Comprehensive Guide for Patients and Families 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 forepairs That s sort of like storing a cursed diamond When I Grow Up, I'm Going to Play for the Nebraska Cornhuskers 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 totallyuin the book for me but it was kind of nagging at the back of my mind while I Sextus: Ou, Le Romain Des Maremmes: Suivi D'Essais Detaches Sur L'Italie: Par M. Me Hortense Allart de Therase readWhat you shouldeally take away from this Die Zarin review is that I m a sucker who s going toead 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 Meaning in History: The Theological Implications of the Philosophy of History read the Chewbacca one I have a problem But you can learn from me If you love or eveneally like Lando by all means Will Gallows and the Snake-Bellied Troll 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 Iemember Lando Calrissian from arguably the best Star Wars film The Empire Strikes Back You must as well or you wouldn t be Nosferatu reading this So we allecall 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 may Snuggle Up, Little One: A Treasury of Bedtime Stories recall that Lando also won the Millennium Falcon in another game of sabacc before Han Solo got his hands on it Lando is again living on.

That S Next Week Wows next week Wow are eally milking this Star Wars licence for everything it s worth So it s up to writer Charles Soule and artist Alex Maleev to somehow come up with a story for this minor supporting character in this 5 issue limited series And they do a perfectly average job Like the other Star Wars titles to come out this year Lando is
set between A New Hope and The Empire Strikes Back Landobetween A New Hope and The Empire Strikes Back Lando money to a gangster who makes him accept a job with a big score steal an expensive space yacht Except they don t ealise it s owned by the Emperor who sends a dangerous bounty hunter after him no not that one a knockoff version of him I like Charles Soule I like Alex Maleev I like Star Wars And I felt very very eeeehhhh about Lando It s not a terribly interesting story and not even Gargantuan remotely necessary I mean do you even know the name of Lando s bald buddy with the gadget on his head I didn t his name s Lobot This whole book is about how he ended upobotic than human a fact I neither cared about before during or after this story Did you even Wolfgang realise he was any different from his two or three scenes in the movies Noight Well if you decide to Publishing Women: Salons, the Presses, and the Counter-Reformation in Sixteenth-Century Italy read this one youe gonna find out Wurr 3 (Wurr regardless We get to see Lando be a daring badass if that s what youe after He out pilots star destroyers He draws first in a gunfight He s got beautiful women chasing him He s like an intergalactic James Bond It s a shame Soule can t find a way to make the Кракатит reader care much about any of it It s not that his writing is bad it s just very ordinary and unexciting Basically like the other solo Star Wars titles the character doesn teally work on its own Star Wars is an ensemble epic There s not a whole lot to say about this one We meet some uninteresting new characters Soule s speciality see his Inhuman and Wolverines titles for examples they fight on board a cursed ship so it s a bit like wandering around a haunted house and then it s over Maleev s art is good but he doesn t do anything special that fans haven t seen before He nails the Billy Dee Williams look though and whoever the actor was who played Lobot And that s the book basically Didn t love it didn t hate it just felt ambivalent about the competently put together workmanlike comic we ended up with I suppose props should go to Soule for giving Lando a story of any sort even if it turned out to be eminently disposable It s irrelevant and forgettable and has PRODUCT written all over it but it s a totally ok minor Star Wars book It s Lando Hmm these Marvel Star Wars comics aren t that great are they I think I m gonna give the Chewbacca series a miss I mean what s next a Grand Moff Tarkin book by Dan Slott and Alex Ross Oh god it s gonna happen isn t it 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 Werewolf: The Apocalypse rather than Marvel s street level arena forced his hand see what I did there Whichever it was I like it His 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 A couple of good plot twists and some knowing dialogue from the title scoundrel sounding as if it could ve been lifted straight from an Empire Strikes Back or Return of the Jedi script still doesn t uite make this one a mustead It s good and the story actually gets better as it progresses but I m not uite sure Lando is an interesting enough character to take the lead and carry his own solo adventure My favorite thus far of Marvel s Das überforderte Gehirn: Mit Steinzeitwerkzeug in der Hightech-Welt recent SWeleases was Skywalker Strikes which worked partially because was an ensemble piece with lots of familiar faces from the film series. T 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 troubleCOLLECTING STAR WARS LANDO #1.
