That burning question from Star Wars: The Force Awakens will soon be answered. How did C-3PO get that red arm? Marvel and Disney announced a while back that there would be a C-3PO comic coming soon, and now we know it will be on shelves in March and will tell a previously unknown story about our favorite fluent communicator.
In the pages seen below, Marvel and Disney released a preview of C-3PO #1:
First seen on Slashfilm, the images do not show us much, but they do appear to be depicting C-3PO in some distress or trouble. The companies also released the official synopsis of the comic series along with the comic images:
How did C-3PO get his red arm?! Find out this March as the burning question is answered in STAR WARS SPECIAL: C-3PO #1! Today, Marvel is pleased to present your first look inside this highly anticipated special. Reuniting acclaimed & award-winning creators James Robinson and Tony Harris for the first time in nearly two decades, follow everyone’s favorite protocol droid on a solo adventure leading up to his appearance in Star Wars: The Force Awakens! STAR WARS SPECIAL: C-3PO #1 is the only place to learn the shocking truth behind how C-3PO lost his original arm – and the exciting origin of how he gained a new one.
Hopefully, the witty droid’s story will be an intriguing one. I’ve always loved C-3PO. The red arm scenario could attach him to some other storylines as well, and could potentially be a link to a more intense time in the universe after Return of the Jedi, a time we don’t know a whole lot about.
In any case, as mention before, the comic hits store shelves in March.
David is a lover of all things nerdy & geeky! (Nerd IS the new cool after all!)
From the wee age of 6 he made his way to a Canadian Tire, purchased a SNES for $200 in in-store credit money (Canadian Tire money for Canadians out there), and hasn’t looked back!
He loves the classics like Donkey Kong, Mario, and Diablo, but is deep into the new age of gaming with Heroes of the Storm, EA’s NHL series, Destiny, and indies like Fez, Thomas Was Alone, and Mark of the Ninja.
