Star Wars: Lando: Double or Nothing #3 shows the smuggler get into a bit of trouble. Here’s our review of the issue.
Star Wars comics might not be quite as popular as the movies, but they give us another visual medium for these characters. With the recent release of Solo: A Star Wars Story, Lando: Double or Nothing released in line with that to let us dive deeper into how Lando and L3-37 spend their time when Han isn’t around.
Lando: Double or Nothing is a five-issue miniseries, so we’re right in the middle of it with this third issue. Lando and L3 are still helping Kristiss get to her father. She manages to do so by being captured, but Lando’s role is delayed slightly due to his own capture, too.

Rodney Barnes is telling a fun story, but as of right now, it’s not totally clear how much this plays into the larger picture of things in the Star Wars universe. Kristiss is on a mission to save her people who are enslaved by the Empire and when she tries to free them, most of them don’t want to leave out of fear of being killed. It’s not exactly a new kind of story, but it’s still interesting to see her work with Lando.
As for the art, Lando looks like Glover’s portrayal of the character and it allows you to feel like you’re just looking at story in the Solo world. Paolo Villanelli and Andres Mossa make a good team for the artistic duties on this issue.
The issue leaves off on a cliffhanger, which makes it hard to not want the next issue now instead of having to wait a full month for it. This adventure that Lando’s on is at risk right now and I’m hoping that there’s some sort of payoff in the end instead of him just getting away scot-free. That would certainly make things more interesting. But overall, this was a fun issue to dive into.
