The Rebellion comes to Marvel! This April, one of the biggest films of 2016 becomes one of the biggest comics of 2017 as ROGUE ONE: A STAR WARS STORY comes to comic shops and digital devices everywhere! Written by Jody Houser (Max Ride) with art by Emilio Laiso (Star Wars Annual), join the harrowing group of Rebels as they embark on a life or death mission to save the galaxy!
All appears lost in the fight against the tyrannical Galactic Empire. The Rebellion has discovered the existence of the Empire’s ultimate super-weapon. The Death Star. With the power to wipe planets from existence, the Death Star’s existence spells doom for those seeking freedom. All hope now lies in the hands of new heroes Jyn Erso and Cassian Andor. Their last ditch gambit to steal the Death Star plans are all that stands in the Empire’s way!
Plus – this 6-issue adaptation of the blockbuster film is set to feature story material not seen on the big screen!
“[Director] Gareth Edwards and Lucasfilm had a number of ideas for moments that didn’t fit in the film that I’m working with,” says writer Jody Houser in an interview with Marvel.com. “There are also some amazing moments in the novelization I want to incorporate. So it’s really a mix of material from existing versions of the story, as well as new scenes.”
