How did Cassian and K-2SO become friends before the events of Star Wars: Rogue One? It’s a question that has been burning in our minds since we saw the movie. This August, Marvel will release Star Wars: Rogue One – Cassian & K-2SO Special #1 on the world.
The special is written by Duane Swierczynski with art by Fernando Blanco,
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!
“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.”
Star Wars: Rogue One – Cassian & K-2SO Special #1 arrives in stores on August 9, 2017.
