While we anxiously await Star Wars' return to our big, and small screens, the talented folks at Marvel have been doing an awesome job entertaining us with all new Star Wars comics. One of the series, titled "Darth Vader", focuses on the Sith Lord as he leads a team in search of Luke Skywalker following the destruction of the first Death Star. One of their newly announced mini-series, "Lando", focuses, of course, on Lando Calrissian prior to him become Baron Administrator of Cloud City.
