Marvel’s universe is set to expand the Star Wars comic universe bringing a mini-series tailored around Lando Calrissian. This series will span over 5 issue. The character of course was played by Billy Dee Williams and proved to be a fan favourite in the Star Wars franchise.
The series will be written by Charles Soule and illustrated by Alex Maleev, and the coming of Lando marks the fifth original Star Wars series to be published by Marvel after the franchise has had a run on other publisher lines like Dark Horse Comics.
Soule gives us insight into the coming series and about the origin of the coolest man in the fricken galaxy:
Before Cloud City, before his glorious Death Star run, 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
