That’s most of the new stuff. What stuck out with some of the ongoing titles is Mark Waid’s Captain America #701 and #702. Chris Samnee looks like he will be off the book already as Leonardo Romero will take over main art duties. He will be joined by JG Jones, Adam Hughes, Howard Chaykin, and Chris Sprouse. And it looks like Waid is already kicking Steve Rogers to the curb. Captain America #701 will start a new story arc “Promised Land” that will see Steve Rogers’s grandson living in Steve Rogers’ utopian America, one can only wonder what that will be…

But as their true roles in this epic saga are revealed, whose side are Tag and Bink on, anyway? The hapless duo’s fateful adventures will take them all the way from Tatooine to Cloud City to Endor — and bring them face-to-face with Lando Calrissian, Boba Fett and more! But every great tale has a prequel — so what were Tag and Bink up to when the Clone Wars began? Prepare to discover their uncanny origin! We have a bad feeling about this! Collecting STAR WARS: TAG & BINK ARE DEAD #1-2, STAR WARS: TAG & BINK II #1-2 and material from STAR WARS TALES #12.

ACTION FIGURE VARIANT COVER BY JOHN TYLER CHRISTOPHER
MOVIE VARIANT COVERS A & B ALSO AVAILABLE
Straight from the frames of the highly-anticipated film SOLO: A STAR WARS STORY swaggers a younger and somehow even cockier Lando Calrissian! Before his days in the Rebellion, before he ran Cloud City, even before he lost the Millenium Falcon, comes this tale of Lando’s adventures and misadventures in search of love and money leading right up to his appearance in SOLO!

I’m really interested in this Lando story. I loved the first miniseries by Charles Soule. I think it is one of Marvel’s better Star Wars series. Everything else just looks lackluster to me. I’ll probably grab that X-Men: Red Annual because I would have liked to see Jean transition back into a member of the X-Men instead of just jumping right into it in X-Men: Red #1.

What do you make of Marvel’s May solicitations?
