How did C-3PO get that distinctive red arm?

J.J. Abrams has been mum when asked the question, claiming that the decision came from wanting to mark the passage of time. The answer will apparently be revealed in Marvel’s upcoming Star Wars Special: C-3PO #1 this March.

Written by the acclaimed creative team of James Robinson (Scarlet Witch) and Tony Harris (Starman), the comic will finally reveal the protocol droid’s adventures prior to when we met him at the Resistance base in Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

Marvel teases that we’ll “discover the origins of his new appendage,” which EW’s resident Star Wars guru Anthony Breznican previously theorized that it was “an aesthetic choice — a marking of The First Order.” View preview pages for C-3PO #1, which will arrive in comic shops March 30.
