January 17th, 2017 by Marc Comments




A new six-part Marvel comic expanding on the events of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is to be released.

In an exclusive with EW, Marvel confirmed the news saying “extra scenes and character moments that didn’t make it into the film” will appear in the new series.

The comics will definitely expand on what was seen in both Rogue One the film and the novelization,” they said. “Lucasfilm and Gareth Edwards had a bunch of ideas for extra scenes and character moments that didn’t make it into the film. Adaptations across different forms of media have always been a great opportunity to explore other facets of the story, and we’re excited to have new material in the Rogue One comic.”

The series will be written by Jody Houser and illustrated by Emilio Laiso with a release date of this coming April.

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….
