Source: Solo: A Star Wars Story Books and Comics Revealed

A new Star Wars (spin-off) movie is just around the corner and of course will bring media tie-ins. Among the novels, chapter books, art of, and guide books are a few titles for fans of comics.

Marvel will be putting out a 5-issue miniseries about everyone's favorite scoundrel, Lando Calrissian. This won't be the first solo comic for Lando, as Marvel put out a limited series titled Lando before the debut of Star Wars; The Force Awakens. Like the previous series, Lando: Double or Nothing, will focus on the character in a time before we first met him. This one goes further back in time to the Donald Glover version of Lando. Here's the description of the series:

Star Wars: Lando: Double or Nothing 5-issue miniseries by Rodney Barnes (writer) and Paolo Villanelli (artist)
Price: $4.99
Issue #1 On Sale: 5/29/18

When a beautiful crime lord commissions the galaxy's most talented smuggler to help free her people enslaved by the Empire, Lando Calrissian must wager it all on an impossible mission fraught with danger. Set just prior to the events of Solo: A Star Wars Story, our charming scoundrel must face Imperial forces with the help of his ship the Millennium Falcon in a deadly race against time. But even with the deck stacked against him, Lando can't help playing the odds.

Marvel isn't the only one in this game (sorry not you Dark Horse), as IDW will be focusing on Han Solo and pals for one of its Free Comic Book Day titles, and a couple of issues of its Star Wars Adventures  series.
