Enfys Nests group Cloud Riders goes back to a comic, which debuted in October 1977.

In Solo: A Star Wars Story A certain element of symmetry plays a role. In addition to the obvious Easter eggs in the film – from last-mentioned moments from Han Solo's mythology, whether it's the Kettle Run or Han winning the Millennium Falcon from Lando, to the Falcon Dice last year Star Wars: The Last Jedi – The story of the character in the film is more subtle: the appearance of the villains from the first solo story Han Solo has ever told.
As might be expected, the first plot of Marvel's original Star Wars following the adaptation of the original film was somewhat unpredictable. In fact, the four-part story that ran from the seventh edition from October 1
For one thing, there is the portrayal of Solo himself, who is much more eager to be a hero than later would establish films ("After all combat I would call my […] star Spurs to stay there and help Princess Leia reunite the rebels "he says at some point, though it's easy to explain how early the franchise's story was published the comrades who bring solo together to defend the alien village, even if you can overlook the human-sized green rabbit named Jaxxon, there is also the old Jedi Knight, who is called Don-Wan Kihotay with almost breathtaking shamelessness. it's not a million miles from Obi-Wan Kenobi, I believe.
However, it's Don-Wan, Han, and Jax defending the village from that joins the 1977 comic book the new movie. The rogues of the play are the Cloud Riders, who happen to bear the same name as the group Enfy's Nest (Erin Kelleman) in Solo .
The name is almost all the two groups have in common. For one thing, Enfy's Nest is nowhere to be found in the cloud rider comics, where they are led by a pirate named Serji-X Arrogantus (again with the unimportant names). On the other hand, the comic riders are more reserved in their ambitions and prefer to stay on the planet Aduba-3, rather than the film group that travels the galaxy, and even more vicious; while Solo reveals that the riders, if not the good guys, are not the true villains of the play, the original footage of the Cloud Riders is cartoonically evil. The design of their flying motorcycles is different.
Nevertheless, solo screenwriter Jonathan Kasdan has confirmed that the movie Cloud Riders is actually based on the cartoon characters:
Not a coincidence at all. In the earliest drafts of the script Enfys Marauders attack the Conveyex on Bantha II skiffs. When Chris & Phil decided they'd rather ride a bike instead, we found the Cloud Riders on Wookieepedia, topped by Marvel Comic, and it's STUCK.

Enfys & Gang were part of all the designs. It was Chris and Phil who came up with the idea of calling them Cloud Riders from the comics. They wanted to pick up the idea of a Star Wars Biker gang, but I think (and I'm grateful) that they were always determined to make it their own

Enfy's nest and friends should be happy that they are not simply a direct translation of the comic originals; If that were the case, the film would not have gone well for them – Serji-X and his criminal compatriots had an unfortunate ending when their fight with Han and friends was interrupted by a huge monster that literally stamped the villains to death. Maybe there is a lesson about the value of doing the right thing. Sure, Enfy's Nest and the cinematic Cloud Rider (not a dash for them) did not finish the movie in the best of places – but at least they were not squeezed to death.
With a cut this deep, perhaps solo should be considered today as the fan service of all Star Wars films – and a challenge for future filmmakers , The first to introduce Don-Wan Kihotay in the canon gains a whole new level of appreciation.
