    Not sure about that, but the pod from 2001: A Space Odyssey is there.

    I assume it's the moment when Saw says "Steela" before he dies, and a panel depicts the two of them with their Clone Wars-era appearances.

    I agree. The Lando heist miniseries was phenomenal.

    First issue came out today, and it was pretty good. I really liked the artwork, I think it fits the story perfectly. The dialog and story were both pretty strong as well, though this issue was mostly set-up. Looking forward to the next one!

    I agree with your assessment. Art was nice. Story was framework setting up the job. I really like how the client played on Lando’s ego and horn dog-ness. The problem with having an outsized personality, is that people will know exactly how to play you.

    An okay first issue, but as usual with firsts, too soon to tell whether the story will be any good. Promising nevertheless, so I'm looking forward to the next one. The back and forth between Lando and L3 is great, the author got the character's interactions really well. The artwork is beautiful, so at the very least this will be a pretty comic to look at.

    I also enjoyed the art, particularly the pencils and inks on Ellthree and the coloring on some of the backgrounds.

    Some good lines from Ellthree. My favorite was "[The cape] enhances his delusions of grandeur." [face_tee_hee] Nice to hear her go on about droid rights a bit more.

    "Purfmurker!" That sounds like a strong word, haha.

    Brushaun, another member of Yasto Attsmun's species! We had one in SW Annual #4, too. I hope we get a name for that species someday.

    Do you folks think this member of Kristiss' team is of the same species as Arty-Ba, the alien holding Tunga captive in SW #45? Different skin color and number of fingers but the head shape is pretty similar. This is a new species, right? If so, it's neat to see them used in different series so close together in time. (Sorry if I'm wrong on all of this. Maybe I'm just seeing what I want to see when it's really nothing more than similarity and coincidence.)

    They look remarkably close to be different species. Nice catch!

    1 of 5 released

    I couldn't say it better myself, so I'll quote you.

    As for Kristiss, I know she refers to the others working with her as her associates/men, but two of them look like they could be her brothers. You think there is any relationships that will come to light to heighten the drama?

    The previous Lando series was SO GOOD that I don't see this one passing it, but thus far it's still looking like a totally worthwhile read.

    Thought there was some decent Lando Swagger in this book. Pretty standard setup, Lando gets involved in a job he doesn't want to, but it'll be interesting to see how it works with L3 involved. Great art, too!

    Oh and semi-related "This is Calrissian"

    I am going to TPB this on the basis of the first preview, definitely.

    New favorite Lando quote: “Your lack of chill is deplorable. Freak my vibe and coast while we glide.”

    Meanwhile that took me right out of it. Felt to me like it was trying way too hard, and not in the fun way.

    Feels more like a parody of Lando—even 'Solo' Lando—than an honest attempt to write Lando. Overall I'd put what we've seen of this comic so far way below the previous Lando comic, which I loved and honestly wish could've taken the 'slightly-humorous-tone comic about a rogue' ongoing slot Aphra got.

    I'm glad you're enjoying it though, even if I don't so much. Not condescension, I genuinely mean that.

    Ya, I think that's fun and entertaining line in and of itself, but not *quite* something I can hear Lando saying word-for-word. Him feeling that general sentiment though, absolutely.

    I do really like "...one theory is a man who wears a cape suffers from several self-image issues." That very accurately describes a lot of my cape-wearing faves. :p

    Somehow that read to me as a typo for "severe", although "several" tracks okay too.

    An ok second issue with superb art.
    Celestials are canon again. Although, what they mean in canon is vague...
