    Pretty entertaining... a bit sad reading this knowing that this era and iteration of Lando probably aren't going to get much more love, after the general reaction to the SOLO film. This should be fun while it lasts, though.

    I wonder if Lord and Miller had Lando dictating the Lando Chronicles in their version of the Solo script. It definitely feels like something he would be doing in the movie and I wonder if Ron and company removed it because it felt too silly. I think it fits with his character and I'm digging the comic so far.

    Hmm? There is such a scene in the film -- as the rioting slaves surface from the mines of Kessel, Lando is alone aboard the Falcon and dictating to a holojournal an adventure he and L3 had in the sacred temple of the Sharu. He states at the beginning of the recording that it's a chapter of the Calrissian Chronicles.

    Thanks, I must have forgot as I only saw the movie once.

    This was a fun read cuz the art is great and I loved Lando monolouging his adventure the whole time, very old school. I will slightly quibble that L-3 is going to lead a droid revolt here seemingly because in Solo it seems that was the first time she did it "I found my purpose, Lando!" and it devalues that moment slightly if she had toes done it before. But, like I said, quibble.

    Same minor quibble, and isn't there similar L3 content in LAST SHOT as well? I like L3 in this book, but if every pre-SOLO characterization of her has her going through similar beats to the ones which seem "new" in the film it'll be a little odd.

    I like this book enough that I'd be fine with it being an ongoing series. I don't know if SOLO's box office makes that less likely, or perhaps more... if the SOLO corner of the universe is dead in the film world, maybe comics are an ideal place to follow those threads.

    I'm still hoping for a Solo adaption from marvel. This is not a bad little series. I say give to marvel, they turn everything into gold ....at least for now.

    "He had a splendid voice. Could sing like the sweetest of Celestials."
    —Lando describing another card player. So, used in a "voice of an angel" turn of phrase.

    Curious.

    Especially as they specifically said they would avoid Star Wars-isms of things and sayings.
