A new comic book miniseries has been announced for Star Wars' Lando Calrissian that will tie into Solo: A Star Wars Story.Rodney Barnes (Falcon), is currently writing a five-issue comic book miniseries tying in the story of Lando Calrissian with events occurring sometime before Solo: A Star Wars Story. The rest of the creative team has not yet been announced, but the title of the miniseries has already been confirmed as Lando: Double or Nothing.
Michael Siglain, Lucasfilm Publishing creative director, stated:
"It’s focused on Lando set during an incident right before the film, with a backstory about Lando and L3. Coming out of the film, we think everyone is going to want to read more about Lando."

I'm excited about more Lando action, primarily because Donald Glover looks stunning in the official Solo: A Star Wars Story preview, yet we still don't get to see much dialogue from him, so parts of his backstory remains a mystery.
Lando: Double or Nothing will make its debut on May 30, 2018, the Wednesday after Solo opens in theaters, May 25, 2018.
