BONUS REVIEW by Kevin Healy

The devil is in the details, and 'Lando' gets ALL the details right. The book is smooth, the circumstances are rough, the job is hard, and the pillow talk is soft. Charles Soule gets his voice down pat- do your best Billy Dee Williams impression and read it out loud, you'll see what I mean. Alex Maleev is an inspired choice for the art, but he needs a colorist matched to his style to make the most of his work. His recent 'Hellboy and the BPRD' arc was almost visually illegible. Here, Paul Mounts makes every page look vibrant and alive.

It's a heist book w/ two heists, one small and one large. Over the course of both you'll get a feel for exactly what Lando thinks about his place in the Empire's universe. Any heist feels better when you've got someone worth stealing from as the mark, and boy this one is a doozy. You probably don't need to be a Star Wars fan to enjoy this, but if you are, I'll bet you the Falcon you'll love it.

I give it 9 out of 10 Grahams
