You know love, join him for his biggest caper as master of charm Lando Calrissian gets his very own comic book! 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. Lobot at his side, Lando has a plan to steal a very valuable ship...but has he bitten off more than he can chew? Writer Charles Soule (DEATH OF WOLVERINE, INHUMAN, SHE-HULK) and artist Alex Maleev (DAREDEVIL, SPIDER-WOMAN, MOON KNIGHT) bring us the tale of a scoundrel in his natural element-trouble!

    AiPT! - David Brooke Aug 13, 2015

    This is without a doubt the best Star Wars comic being printed right now and there are some surefire gems in that bunch too. This comic doesn't center on the main characters or events, but Lando is turning out to be the most interesting and complex character of the bunch. Read Full Review

    Bounding Into Comics - John F. Trent Aug 15, 2015

    Lando #2 is the best Star Wars comic Marvel is putting out right now. It is fun, action-packed, and intriguing. The characterization is excellent whether it is through dialogue, action, or body language. Maleev's artwork is top-notch and despite the use of the orange color inside the Imperialis, Mounts' colors were generally good. If you aren't reading this book, you need to. It is that good!

    We The Nerdy - Jack Johnston Aug 13, 2015

    If you're a fan of Star Wars but wanted to see a more smooth operator than Han or Luke at the helm than look no further than Lando. This series is fast becoming everything I hoped it would be and think that it works well in tone alongside books likeDeadLetters. I do wonder if the series might have possibly worked better as a TV drama but then I feel it wouldn't be able to have great scenes such as the ‘dog fight' between the three Star Destroyers and Lando's stolen craft. If you're looking for a little something a bit different than most series out right now, among the big two and independents, then giveLando a try by picking up either #2 (which isn't a bad jumping on point) or #1 if you can.

    Lando is a real treat. I sincerely cant wait for the next issue and knowing its a limited series is a real comfort. We all know that anxiety about not wanting the quality to dip on a new book or the creative team to move on. Unlike every character in the Star Wars universe I hage a good feeling about this.

    Graphic Policy - Edward Wendt Aug 14, 2015

    Once again this series proves to have a winning formula. The medium of comics is perhaps not the best suited for the grand scale of Star Wars, but this compensates well for it. The space chase sequence is well executed despite the two dimensional nature of the medium, but it is made up for with a neat twist and excellent artwork. On the whole this series is an unexpected success, with moments in the first two issues that surprise and keep the reader guessing where it is going. The Marvel Star Wars team finds itself another hero in Lando, and proves that there are still lots of good stories to be told in a galaxy far far away. Read Full Review

    Lando #2 takes the premise that was created during the first issue and takes it to new levels. Between the perfect characterisation and energetic narrative, the creators give Star Wars fans something to be proud of, whilst giving great teasers to the mini-series' future. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Aug 13, 2015

    It's a pretty solid book that makes for a great read in single form and likely a very fun collection down the line. Read Full Review

    Comicsverse - Danny Rivera Aug 17, 2015

    LANDO #2 is so much more fun than the first issue, but I think that's because I'm open to it. I'm the ideal audience for LANDO (and all the STAR WARS comics): I'm an obsessive fan of the franchise, but my obsession ends at the old Expanded Universe. I didn't read any of those books or comics (now considered STAR WARS: Legends), so I can tackle these things fresh. For people like me, that opens up a lot of fun possibilities. For others (even non-STAR WARS fans), there's not a lot to love here. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jeff Lake Aug 13, 2015

    Do people still use the word moxie? Because that's something Lando #2 has in spades. Not only have Charles Soule and Alex Maleev managed to build an investing narrative, but they've managed to do so away from the larger Star Wars universe enjoyed by the brand's other titles. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Richard Gray Aug 13, 2015

    Thematically, the book deals with the consequences of failing the Emperor, and as such, goes to some welcomingly dark places. Read Full Review

    ComicWow!TV - Bhavna Bakshi Aug 18, 2015

    Lando is a really good series thus far. This issue is gritty and creates a sense of urgency, while Soule works on Lando’s characterization. This series is doing really well, and if issues like this keep coming out, it’s on its way to success! Read Full Review

    "Lando" has an action-packed and tense issue as Lando and friends try to escape with their prize. They don't know whose ship they've stolen or what is on the ship but they now know they have something very important. The comic book brings in some new players to add to the chase by the comic's end. This is a very solid read backed up with stunning visuals. I recommend checking this comic book out.

    A frustrating reading experience on many levels. This is how not to produce a Star Wars comic. Read Full Review
