The smooth-talking scoundrel strikes back! Marvel and Lucasfilm announced that Lando Calrissian ? puffer pig collector, Cloud City administrator, and Rebel hero ? will star in his own limited series. Lando #1, from creators Charles Soule (Death of Wolverine, Inhuman, She-Hulk) and Alex Maleev (Daredevil, Spider-Woman, Moon Knight), hits stores in July, and finds Lando embarking on his greatest caper ever.

?Is Lando Calrissian the coolest character in all of Star Wars? Depends on who you ask, probably. But if you ask me, the answer is yes, and I plan to prove it with this story,? says series writer Soule.

In Marvel?s Lando, developed closely with Lucasfilm, the titular character ? in the days before he became a hero, but still with Lobot at his side ? looks to steal one of the galaxy?s most valuable ships. But, as usual, he may be in over his head.

?Before Cloud City, before his glorious Death Star run,? continues Soule, ?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.?

Hot on the heels of the character?s return in the Star Wars Rebels animated series, Lando joins Marvel?s growing line of critically acclaimed and bestselling Star Wars comics, including Star Wars, Star Wars: Darth Vader, Star Wars: Princess Leia, and Kanan: The Last Padawan. This deal is getting better all the time.

Check out a special first look at two alternate covers below.
