@Read Epub ã Star Wars: Lando ó You know him, you love him now, join him for his biggest caper ever as master of charm Lando Calrissian steps into his very own high stakes adventure Before he joined the rebellion, before he ran Cloud City, Lando made his way in the galaxy getting by on some swindles, some swagger and a smile With the loyal Lobot at 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 COLLECTING STAR WARS LANDO 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. Looking forward to the inevitable Boba 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 Chewbacca his own series Wait, that s next week Wow, Marvel are really 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 Looking forward to the inevitable Boba 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 Chewbacca his own series Wait, that s next week Wow, Marvel are really 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 Lando owes money to a gangster who makes him accept a job with a big score steal an expensive space yacht Except they don t realise 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 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 uprobotic than human, a fact I neither cared about before, during, or after this story Did you even realise he was any different from his two or three scenes in the movies No, right Well, if you decide to read this one, you re gonna find out regardless We get to see Lando be a daring badass, if that s what you re 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 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 t really 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 forexamples , 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 Star Wars Lando is exactly how a story about the best smooth talking smuggler in space should be entertaining, exciting and tense Before he joined the rebellion, before he ran Cloud City, Lando made his way in the galaxy getting by on some swindles, some swagger and a smile Soule and Maleev tell us a story from the early life of Calrissian as a smuggler This story is about his most stylish and crazy space heist he ever made, that of course takes just almost instantly a turn for the worse Star Wars Lando is exactly how a story about the best smooth talking smuggler in space should be entertaining, exciting and

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 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 unquestionable and whose thirst for a quick credit unquenchable Lobot, the bit character from Cloud City is given a decent amount of page time enough to render the character into one ofsubstance than the droid like incarnation of the original films I really enjoyed the extra layer of depth to him and gained an appreciation I thought this graphic novel was great Pre A New Hope, we get a glimpse into the swindler

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
