    The art and coloring have improved and the book is better. This now looks like a Star Wars book. I hope it closes out as well as this installment was. Read Full Review

    It is a credit to LANDO #4 that this review can say so little about the plot. I am of the belief that the best stories are immune to spoilers but, sometimes there are exceptions. Given the recap at the beginning of the issue, even newcomers can pick up LANDO #4 and appreciate it–newcomers, that is, that are still “Star Wars” fans. Make no mistake: the story is steeped in “Star Wars” mythology and may go over the heads of outsiders. Still, LANDO #4 is not just a highlight of the series, but of all the “Star Wars” comics.

    Lando #4 once again proves why this is a mini-series for all Star Wars fans, as between the dramatic twists and exciting developments, it really helps build tension. It also leaves us quite a bit to ponder heading into the finale, with Lando having some tough decisions ahead of him. Read Full Review

    Lando has really moved swiftly as a book and the result is something that just flows wonderfully. Each issue brings a new little nudge overall, expanding the characters a bit and really making you want more material with them after all is said and done here. This issue brings us to a good place where you can see some of the fallout to come but also the uncertainties piling up. Soule continues to get Lando himself perfectly and he's added to the overall galaxy with characters I want more of across the board. His pairing with Maleev is spot on as he brings a great kind of design that at times reminds me of some of the more creative installments from the original Marvel run of the main Star Wars series in the 80's towards the end, particularly in the roughness and the lines combined with the color style. It's a fantastic book from top to bottom that as a whole will definitely be even better. Read Full Review

    Soule deserves credit for fleshing out all the members of the cast, not just Lando himself. The clone warriors Aleksin and Pavol stand out especially in this issue as their odd relationship is elaborated upon and tragedy sets in. Read Full Review

    Lando #4 is not underwhelming, its just noticeable in a book that has been pure momentum when the writer as well as the characters are taking a breather. I have a good feeling that the finale will deliver and send this brash gambler off in style. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - David Brooke Sep 16, 2015

    It's good, but not great and it suffers the penultimate issue syndrome so many comics go through. It's all setup for the big climax and it feels like a bridge issue. Read Full Review

    "Lando" takes a turn for the scary with this issue. The bounty hunter enters the fray as everyone is now trapped on the Emperor's ship with a deadly Sith artifact looking to take over. The comic has good visuals but struggles when trying to nail down the characterization of Lando. Overall, this is a good comic book but could be a classic if only it handled the lead character more in keeping with the films. I recommend giving this a chance. Read Full Review
