    Lando is a treasure from month to month. I wish it was an ongoing title as I could see myself buying it indefinitely. Hopefully the sales convince Marvel to make it exactly that. Read Full Review

    Fantastic characters and a pulse pounding plot are found in this comic. The ink work is dark and brooding, but is outmatched by the incredibly uplifting and captivating character of Lando Calrissian. Read Full Review

    Bounding Into Comics - John F. Trent Aug 30, 2015

    Lando #3 is another near-perfect issue from Charles Soule and Alex Maleev. It is extremely entertaining and the best Star Wars comic on the shelves right now. It captures classic Star Wars from the droids to the bounty hunters to the team dynamic. It really embodies the essence of Star Wars. If you aren't buying this book, you definitely need to. It is that good. Read Full Review

    Lando #3 has a lot of layers hiding underneath it's slick surface. While the issue's widescreen action beat is definitely something that can get readers in the door, Lando #3 also ratchets up the tension of the chase and delivers a grounded, human take one of Star Wars' most intriguing characters. Lando #3 is the kind of issue that makes you wish that this series was an ongoing instead of just a miniseries. Charles Soule, Alex Maleev, and Paul Mounts have tapped into a character set and tone that could sustain multiple arcs, but for now, we have three solid issues starring a band of scoundrels and one hell of a long con. That's enough for now, but you can't help but feel greedy for more. Read Full Review

    Lando continues to be an astounding mini-series, with the look into this bold character's past being sensational. This is all aided by a tantalising side plot, as the Emperor's bounty hunter draws closer to his prey. So be sure to pick this up at your local store, as whether you're a fan of the galaxy far, far away or not, you're bound to love this. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Edward Wendt Aug 27, 2015

    This series is once again showing that the direction of the now canonical comic series is heading in the right direction. There is not much here which is trying to redefine the Star Wars universe, or to send it off on some tangent, but rather the focus is on telling engaging and fun stories within this continuity. This issue stumbles a little bit as it loses some momentum with the battle sequence, but still keeps the series moving along well. After all, this is not meant to be a defining Star Wars experience, rather a complementary one, and it succeeds at being that. It helps, not hinders, the main story telling of the movies and offers insights into bypassed characters along the way. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Aug 27, 2015

    The end result is an utterly beautiful book in old school science fiction form that feels like it could have easily been made in the 1970's. Hopefully this team will have more adventures with this character in the future. Read Full Review

    Comicsverse - Danny Rivera Aug 27, 2015

    Overall, LANDO #3 does what you would want a third issue to do: it moves your story forward while giving us more of the characters we have, introducing new ones, and deepening and fleshing out the world in which the story takes place. It's a good read"I just wish it felt more consequential. Read Full Review

    A rare slip for the otherwise exceptional series of Star Wars books to date, and despite being a mini-series, Lando #3 just feels like it is spinning its wheels a little bit. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Jim Johnson Aug 28, 2015

    "Star Wars: Lando" #3 is an adequate midpoint for a miniseries that has been well done so far and lays down promise for future issues, despite reading very much like an interlude. Read Full Review

    SciFiPulse - Patrick Hayes Aug 30, 2015

    This is quickly degrading from the previous issue. A question of timing and poor visuals make this a runner up to the Star Wars Holiday Special. If you love Star Wars or comic books, avoid this. Read Full Review
