Marvel is set to explore the epic adventures of Cassian Andor and his reprogramming Imperial security droid K-2sO will the upcoming one-shot comic Star Wars: Rogue One – Cassian & K-2SO Special #1 from writer Duane Swierczynski (Cable, Punisher: Frank Castle) and artist Fernando Blanco (Marvel Zombies, Thunderbolts).
“When I first heard about Rogue One, I was thrilled,” said series writer Duane Swierczynski. “A heist movie set in the Star Wars universe? Are you kidding? Never in my wildest dreams did I think I’d be invited to tell a small piece of that story. And it was even cooler that I was asked to write about the first meeting of Cassian and K-2SO — easily my two favorite characters in the movie. What can I say? I love bad-asses and robots.”
Despite fighting to protect the galaxy, Cassian Andor and K-2SO haven’t always been on the same side of the Galactic Civil War – and readers will find out why in this new story, which includes the two characters meeting each other for the very first time!
Without spoiling anything, we can confirm that this IS the droid you are looking for this August, when Marvel releases STAR WARS: ROGUE ONE – CASSIAN & K-2SO SPECIAL #1, available wherever comics are sold this August!
