This July, Lando Calrissian joins the likes of Darth Vader, Princess Leia, and Kanan Jarrus with his very own Marvel comic. The limited series is being spear-headed by Charles Soule (“Death of Wolverine,” “She-Hulk”) and Alex Maleev (“Daredevil,” “Spider-Woman”). The two will take Lando on what is promised to be his greatest caper ever.

From the press release:

“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.”

As with there other Star Wars titles, Marvel worked closely with Lucasfilm to make sure Lando’s latest challenge — stealing one of the galaxy’s most valuable ships — fits into the cohesive narrative being spun across all of Star Wars properties.
