New York, NY – April 17, 2015 – You know him. You love him. Prepare to see
a side of him you’ve never seen before as the galaxy’s smoothest gambler,
entrepreneur, and smuggler gets his very own series! Today, Marvel
Entertainment and Lucasfillm Ltd. are pleased to announce LANDO #1 – a
brand new Star Wars limited series coming this July from Marvel Comics!
Join Lando on his greatest caper ever as blockbuster creators Charles
Soule (Death of Wolverine, Inhuman, She-Hulk) and Alex Maleev (Daredevil,
Spider-Woman, Moon Knight) bring you a new tale of a scoundrel in his
natural element – trouble!
“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 Charles Soule.
Before he joined the rebellion, before he oversaw mining operations on
Bespin – he was just Lando. Making his way in the galaxy and getting by on
good looks, charm, and an ace up his sleeve (sometimes literally). With
his cyborg aide Lobot at his side, Lando has plans to steal one of the
galaxy’s most valuable ships. Yet even with his swindles and unparalleled
swagger – has he bitten off more than he can chew?
“Before Cloud City, before his glorious Death Star run,” continues Soule,
“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.”
Created in close partnership with Lucasfilm, this new Marvel Comics
limited series will exist as part of the canon for the Star Wars universe!
Once again, Marvel brings the biggest creators in the industry to the
biggest characters in a galaxy far, far away. Be there when the Star Wars
line expands this July in LANDO #1!
