When Star Wars: The Force Awakens came out last year, it left us with many questions. Who are Rey’s parents? Why did Kylo Ren turn to the Dark Side? Who is Supreme Leader Snoke? But one question people wanted to be answered more than any other: How did C-3P0 get his red arm?
Disney already revealed Marvel would release a comic detailing how the character got his new arm, and now a first look at the special has been released. It isn’t much; we’re not sure where C-3P0 is, but it doesn’t really look like he’s in good company. The protocol droid appears to be on a dangerous planet inhabited by other droids, including one that has some sort of flamethrower arm.
The Star Wars special reunites James Robinson and Tony Harris, who Marvel says haven’t worked together in nearly two decades. According to Marvel, Star Wars Special: C-3P0 #1 will reveal “the shocking truth behind how C-3P0 lost his original arm—and the exciting origin of how he gained a new one.”
Well Marvel, you certainly have my attention.
Marvel says the comic should hit shops in March. Feast your eyes on the first photos inside the new story in the gallery above.
