EW's Anthony Breznican continued to roll out Solo: A Star Wars Story news, revealing a long list of tie in books and comics yesterday! We had heard very little about tie in material for Solo, but now it looks like we are going to get a wide breadth of content spanning before and after the film.
I am particularly excited by the Lando 5-issue comic mini series, the novel, and the young reader book. This grouping of books, which have become standard releases with films, usually add the most to canon and give the extended universe fan a little more to sink their teeth into.
Lando: Double or Nothing (May 30th, 2018) a 5-issue comic mini series written by Rodney Barnes will continue to add to Lando's back story elaborating on events right before the film. The Lando mini series written by Charles Soule set between ANH and ESB was fantastic and I'm hoping this series continues with the quality Lando stories we have been getting from Marvel Comics. This is expected to be released the first Wednesday after the film drops.
The Last Shot (April 17th, 2018) novel by Daniel José Older spans 3 eras of Star Wars covering events from before Solo until after ROTJ! The novel includes focused stories set around Lando and L3-37 (before the events of Solo), Han, Chewie, and Sana Starros (between Solo and a New Hope), and a post-ROTJ story with Han, Leia, Ben Solo, and Lando!
Most Wanted (May 25th, 2018), by Rae Carson is a YA novel that will explore Han and Qi'ra as teenagers on Corellia and could tie into the timeline we see in the trailer with the two of them street racing. The YA novels are becoming some of my favourite tie-in material as they are quick reads that add a lot to canon.
