Marvel teased a couple of announcements at Star Wars Celebration Anaheim, and it now looks like we know what one of them will be: Lando Calrissian will be getting his own miniseries starting in July! From StarWars.com:

The smooth-talking scoundrel strikes back! Marvel and Lucasfilm announced today 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…

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.

I enjoyed Lando’s appearance on Star Wars Rebels and have mostly been enjoying Marvel’s run of Star Wars comics, so I’m fairly excited by this news. Hit up StarWars.com for more on the story.
