FIRST LOOK: Cassian and K-2SO get their own Marvel Rogue One comic

May 22nd, 2017 by Marc Comments

Cassian Andor and his reprogrammed Imperial security droid K-2SO have a partnership that rivals the closeness of Luke Skywalker and R2-D2.

But like all great stories, that wasn’t always the case. So how did the great partnership of human and droid come to be? This August, find out the real history between the two characters when Marvel releases STAR WARS: ROGUE ONE – CASSIAN & K-2SO SPECIAL #1, written by acclaimed author Duane Swierczynski (Cable, Punisher: Frank Castle) with art by Fernando Blanco (Marvel Zombies, Thunderbolts).

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.”

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!

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
