Among the startling delights of Rogue One: Star Wars Story were the new characters, nearly all of whom perished by the film’s end. Of intriguing interest was Edrio and Benthic Two Tubes, the Tognaths who were among the trusted members of Saw Gerrera’s band of Rebels on Jedha.
While their time on screen was short, it was impressive, but the screenplay allowed for scant detail about the egg mates’ origins, thinking and devotion to the Rebellion.
That’s changed, thanks not to just the assorted books, from the official novel adapting the film or the excellent Rogue One: A Visual Guide.
For Jim Mello and Alex Ray, it wasn’t enough. The pair were so intrigued by Benthic Two Tubes that they seized upon the idea of a six-page comic about the Tognath and, in the process, have created a fan-made ode to not just the character, but to Star Wars, too.
