From the press release:

“Before Cloud City, before his glorious Death Star run,” continues Soule, “Lando Calrissian was just a man trying to make his way through an uncaring universe determined not to recognize that he was undeniably the coolest man in the galaxy. But Lando”s got a plan to change all that… and it starts with the deal of a lifetime.”

As with there other Star Wars titles, Marvel worked closely with Lucasfilm to make sure Lando”s latest challenge – stealing one of the galaxy”s most valuable ships – fits into the cohesive narrative being spun across all of Star Wars properties.
