Marvel announces a six-issue comic book adaptation of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story with new content not seen in the film.
My Take: While I am all for comic book adaptations I feel that Marvel waited a bit too long to announce this adaptation. Star Wars books are always solid but the timing will impact the sales of this book in my opinion.
Check out some of the different covers as well as a sneak peek of the first issue of this six-issue adaptation.
