Star Wars: Lando (graphic novel) - Paul's REVIEW

Amazon | Barnes & Noble | Goodreads

Title: Star Wars: Lando

Author: Charles Soule
Illustrator: Alex Maleev
Recent Release Date: January 19, 2016

Synopsis: 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 more 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 LANDO #1-5.


Review: This is another miniseries from Marvel. I've really enjoyed the focuses on different characters. This one lets Lando take the lead. The art in this graphic novel doesn't feel very Star Wars to me. I like it, but it just doesn't have that classic feel to it. The designs of the aliens feels off as well.

The Sith Infiltrator appears in this series. I always like when prequel era blends into the original trilogy. 

The bounty hunters of the Star Wars universe have always been cool. This series introduces some more mercenaries. The feline duo is interesting.

Lobot has such a small, but present role in The Empire Strike Back. It's neat to see more of his history. This book has a surprisingly emotional ending.  

This miniseries really got Lando as a character. I loved the way he used the blaster towards the end. I wasn't hooked from the start, but the writing really pulled me in. By the end, I wanted more! I give Lando a 4/5. I'm excited for more Star Wars from Charles Soule. He is doing the upcoming Poe Dameron comic.
