Marvel Announces New Star Wars: Rogue One Comics
Marvel has been hard at work building the new Star Wars expanded universe with their comic series, and now they're going to give us backstory on one of the most anticipated movies of the year: Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.

Marvel announced today at C2E2 (via Bleeding Cool) that they would release a 3-issue comic series, in addition to a one-shot, in October to promote Rogue One. There are no plot details as of yet, but Comicbook.com confirmed with Marvel that the series will serve as a prequel to the film.

Marvel also announced that for Star Wars Day (May the 4th be with you), they would be selling one-dollar issues from the original Marvel run of Star Wars comics, as well as issues from the past year, as part of their True Believers series.

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story comics will hit comic book stores in October, ahead of the film's release on December 18.
