Star Wars Comics Reviews: Star Wars: Rogue One — Cassian & K-2SO

This review of Star Wars: Rogue One — Cassian & K-2SO contains minor spoilers.

Now we know why K-2SO handled that sidearm with such lethality toward the end of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.

We also know a great deal more about the nature of the relationship the ex-Imperial droid shared with Rebel spy Cassian Endor, too. This story is a splendid example of how comics can be used to build up and add to the mythology of Star Wars films.

Written by crime-fiction novelist and comics writer Duane Swiercyznski (check out his work on Dark Circle ComicsThe Black Hood), this one-shot provides a solidly entertaining origin story for Cassian Andor and K-2SO. The cover is by Julian Totino Tedesco with a variant (pictured) by Chris Samnee.

On my 46th birthday (July 16), I was reduced to my 10-year-old self. I laughed, jumped for joy, squeed more than a few times, and quite literally performed at least one happy dance. My eyes were a little brighter, and my steps a little lighter. All because of Star Wars.

And that’s a good thing…a VERY good thing!

When it comes to Star Wars, I’m a big kid at heart anyway, as I’m most (or all) of you reading this right now can relate.
