    Star Wars: Return of the Jedi Lando #1 continues to give some much-needed dimension to Lando Calrissian, and is a fun caper story. It makes me wish that there was a Lando ongoing, as there's so much you could do with his character in the years in-between Return of the Jedi and The Force Awakens. Let's hope the rest of the Return of the Jedi one-shots follow the same track. Read Full Review

    Lando has had some good stories in the comics over the last few years, from the first miniseries that was a real blast to the recent turn with him and Holdo hooking up. Watching him and Chewie trying to get the plans is fun and it's the light kind of adventure that you want for a one-shot and one where I expect the main storyline done in the main series will be a bit more detailed and complicated. I didn't go into this expecting Andor or anything but what I got was good Star Wars fun with a solid script and some great artwork. It's the kind of little details that I enjoyed in this sprawling adventure. Read Full Review

    We're disappointed that this was only a one-shot, as we'd love to get more adventures in this spirit focusing on Calrissian, but we're hopeful that this is just the beginning of how he will be integrated into the core Star Wars title. Read Full Review

    Interior art from Alvaro Lopez delivers simple, yet engaging storytelling that pairs well with Phillips' writing. The rest of the creative team includes colorist Antonio Fabela and letterer Travis Lanham and brings the entire one-shot together. Read Full Review
