EGP Website Article Image 132

A lot more attention has been paid to the Star Wars comics since Marvel started working on Star Wars comics again, and the announcement that comics (as well as everything else) released would be part of the official canon. There are currently several great Star Wars comic series being released.

While this one may not be a full series, an exciting standalone Star Wars comic issue has been announced.

C-3PO will be getting a one-shot comic titled- “Star Wars Special: C-3P0 #1”.

The book will be part of the Journey to The Force Awakens program and set in between Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi and Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens. It will reveal how C-3PO gets the red arm he has in The Force Awakens (as featured in the behind the scenes reel and in an action figure two-pack from Hasbro).

The crew working on the comic includes writer James Robinson and artist Tony Harris.

The standalone C-3PO comic will be released in December, the same month as The Force Awakens.
